- Reboot yourself, you're free to go
- Every generation get's a chance to change the world
I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight
Only love can leave such a mark
it's not if I believe in love but if love believes in me

Yeah, much better.

There's actually the track by track review, then another mini one linked off to the side in 'related coverage'.

I think you can hear the cockatoo line in the beach clip, followed by 'so why would i invite a stranger into my home, would you?'

These ARE good lyrics.

Of couse, if you're cynical and always looking for something to complain, you'll always find something that isn't 100% amazing.

All these lyrics are fine, some sound really awsome, and I think it's wrong to judge lyrics without knowing the context and without having heard the song.

If you took the time to read exactly, you'd know that it's "gets the chance to change the world". That's something else.

I like all of the above except IGCIIDGCT. And I really don't like Bomb's lyrics.

"I got a submarine, you've got gasoline" is a great line btw.

once again, how can you judge a lyric when it's not in the context of the entire song?

LOVE the gasoline/submarine line, it has so many potential meanings (sexual, political, military, etc.), it's much deeper than it looks.

I also think that Boots' lyrics are probably the best Bono has written in quite a long time (i.e. Pop) and some of the ones we have heard from the other songs seem really promising too (although not all of them).

We'll have to see with the whole songs of course but it does seem like Bono has found some of his teeth back in terms of lyrics. I agree with everyone who thinks the last two albums were quite weak lyrically (although they had some great moments/lines too).

I like that, but I cannot get the picture of the guys stripping out of my head.
