Listen To your words they'll tell you what to do
Listen OVER the rhythm that's confusing you
Listen To the reed in the saxophone
Listen OVER the hum of the radio
(And then it gets really amazing )
Listen OVER sounds of blades in rotation
Listen THROUGH the traffic in circulation
Listen AS HOPE AND PEACE TRY TO RHYME
Listen OVER marching bands playing out their time

WAKE UP DEAD MAN

So many to choose from, nut I'll go with these:

The sun's so bright it leaves no shadows, only scars, carved into stone on the face of earth - ONE TREE HILL

If theres an order in all of this disorder
Is it like a tape recorder?
Can we rewind it just once more? - WUDM

You wanted to get somewhere so badly
You had to lose yourself along the way - GONE

Jesus never let me down
You know Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door - IGWSHA

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may your dreams be realised
If the thunder cloud passes rain
So let it rain, let it rain

I'm ready
Ready for the laughing gas

Give me one last chance
And i'm gonna make you sing
give me half a chance
to ride on the waves that you bring

You're honey child to a swarm of bees
gonna blow right through you like a breeze
give me one last chance
we'll slide down the surface of things

We're free to fly the crimson sky
the sun won't melt our wings tonight

Don't change your brand
Don't listen to the band
Don't gape
Don't ape
Don't change your shape
Have another grape

In the shithouse a shotgun
Praying hands hold me down
If only the hunter was hunted
In this tincan town

Broken back to the ceiling
Broken nose to the floor
I scream at the silence, it's comin'
It crawls under the door

Every artist is a canibal
Every poet is a thief
All kill their inspiration
And sing about their grief

(The Fly)

If you wanna kiss the sky
Better learn how to kneel
On your knees boy

(Mysterious Ways)



------------------
I will be with you again...

"......look, I gotta go. I'm runnin' out of change. There are alot of things.... If I could I'd rearrange"

This entire thread of posts has reminded of how brilliant Bono is. Sometimeshe gets overlooked in the songwriting department, but for my money, it's the subtlety of saying something brilliant like the thought above. After all that song was the propellant of U2 in the 90's, well at least it started of 1991. All of these posts have been great and have forced me to break out some older stuff that I havent listened to in awhile, thanks you guys, this shit is fun.

If you wanna kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel....ON YOUR KNEES, BOY!!!!!

what happened our face of melting snow?

take this tangle of a conversation, turn it into your own prayer

Take my hand, oyu know Ill be there,
If you can Ill cross the sky for your love

We're free to fly the crimson sky
the sun wont melt our wings tonight.

Dressing like your sister
Living like a tart
if they dont know what your doin
Babe it must be art.

Stay with the demons you drowned.


and you can dream, so dream out loud......

Mine are;

"I have kissed honey lips,felt the healing in her fingertips, it burned like a fire" -Makes my hair stand on end!

"You ask me to enter but then you make me crawl,
I can't keep holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt"

"You know I got black eyes but they BURN so brightly for her"

"i want to reach out over the loch-feel your hands across the park"

But lets face it,they're all GREAT!

"Am I buggin' you? I don't mean to bug ya... Okay Edge, play the blues..."
"No stars in the black night Looks like the sky fell down No sun in the daylight Looks like it's chained to the ground"
"The rich stay healthy The sick stay poor"
"Open up, open up To the lamb of God To the love of he who made The blind to see He's coming back He's coming back I believe it Jesus coming"
"I started a landslide in my ego"
"You hurt yourself, you hurt your lover, then you discover, what you thought was freedom is just greed."
"The rivers run but soon run dry, we need new dreams tonight"


SCREAM THEME
"No spoken words, just a scream"
"You got to cry without weeking, talk without speaking, scream without raising your voice"
"Her skin is pale like God's only dove/ Screams like an angel for your love/ Then she makes you watch her from above/ And you need her like a drug"

Great topic, although making a choice is almost a "mission impossible" but here it goes, talking about love...

From One:

Love is a temple
Love, a higher law
Love is the temple
Love, the higher law

From Love is Blindness:

Love is blindness
I don't wanna see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
All my love
Is blindness

marvellous, wonderful, amazing, astonishing, awesome, what else can I say? I love them!

You can dream so dream out loud
