Take 'em off, slip 'em in your pocket

I believe that's the pretty official lyric. You can find it here: http://www.atu2.com/lyrics/misc/elev...scalation.html

Another rumour I've heard is that he actually says "We can still beat pop". It sounds pretty accurate, but I don't know why he would say that. (even though they CAN.. )

That's the first interpretation I've seen where I've nodded my head and thought, "Yep, that's it!"

On MTV I saw the Elevation video director talking about the "good Bono and the and evil Bono" that were featured in the video. If you've seen it you'll note that our Bono receives a phonecall at the start saying "This is Evil Bono . We have the Edge. We want the key. You are surrounded".

So in that respect "I and I" might make since - there's one good Bono and one bad one! (Bet they're both still great songwriters though.)

But Joseph Khan just made a plot for the video without referring to the lyrics. Even when almost the entire video was shot, neither Bono nor Adam had a clue what was going on in the vid. When Elevation wouldn't have been the soundtrack for Tomb Raider the video would be completely different cos Evil U2 and Good U2 did just exist for fighting for that time-stopper-thingy of the movie. So I don't think this 'I and I' is referring to the video.

I and I is a Rastafarian thing (i.e. Bob Marley).

Here: (from http://religiousmovements.lib.virgin...nrms/rast.html

I and I: This concept has become "the most important theoretical tool apart from the Babylonian conspiracy in the Rastafarian repertoire." Cashmore explains, "I and I is an expression to totalize the concept of oneness, the oneness of two persons. So God is within all of us and we're one people in fact. I and I means that God is in all men. The bond of Ras Tafari is the bond of God, of man. But man itself needs a head and the head of man is His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia."
