Happy Sixteenth of June!



16th of June, nine-oh-five, door bell rings
Man at the door says if I want to stay alive a bit longer
There’s a few things I need you to know
Three

Coming from a long line of
Traveling sales people on my mother’s side
I wasn’t gonna buy just anyone’s cockatoo
So why would I invite a complete stranger into my home?
Would you?

These days are better than that
These days are better than that

Every day I die again, and again I’m reborn
Every day I have to find the courage
To walk out into the street
With arms out
Got a love you can’t defeat
Neither down nor out
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe now

16th of June, Chinese stocks are going up
And I’m coming down with some new Asian virus
Ju Ju man, Ju Ju man
Doc says you’re fine, or dying
Please
Nine-oh-nine, St. John Divine on the line, my pulse is fine
But I’m running down the road like loose electricity
While the band in my head plays a striptease

The roar that lies on the other side of silence
The forest fire that is fear so deny it

Walk out into the street
Sing your heart out
The people we meet
Will not be drowned out
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe now
Yeah, yeah

We are people borne of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown

Walk out, into the sunburst street
Sing your heart out, sing my heart out
I’ve found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all that I found
And I can breathe
Breathe now

Funny story: I was sleeping in this morning, when my dad BARGED THE HELL INTO MY ROOM and shouted "HEY! WAKE UP! YOU CAN'T MISS IT!" like a kid on Christmas morning. Needless to say, this all happened at precisely 9:05 and was backed to the sounds of Breathe being played very loudly in the next room.

While I appreciate his enthusiasm, I would have been perfectly happy to wait until 9:05 P.M.

I found this on the web for those that don't know this already :
Dublin celebrates on the 16th of June "BLOOMSDAY” a fictional anniversary created by James Joyce, taken from his novel Ulysses.
The 16th of June will see strange goings-on in Dublin every year - mostly elderly gentlemen and ladies in decidedly old-fashioned garb tramping through town. Reciting literature. These are people celebrating Bloomsday."

Does anyone have a guess or know what 9-0-9 St.John Devine means?
I know there is speculation but has anyone heard Bono mention this in any interviews as to what it means?
I thought it might be another biblical reference, or a reference to the church St.John Devine in New York City??

Oh man. Freaky. I didn't even realise this and my alarm went off this morning at exactly 9.05 this morning!

Happy Cock-atoo day guys.

Hmm that's interesting about the Bloomsday... I wonder how it relates to the song though unless and gentleman is the one ringing the doorbell

I wonder what the 9-0-9 thing is too. I'm not very smart in the Bible area but is there a passage written by St. John, chapter 9.9... That's my only idea. I would like to know though.
