I think it's official now - the "being born" clip from a year ago is the end of the middle 8 of "The Blackout" before the third chorus starts.

I've got most of the lyrics together.

??? ... earth
A meteor promises its not gonna hurt, yeah
Earthquakes always happen when you're in bed, Fred
The house shakes
Maybe it was something I said, Ned

Go easy on me
Go easy on me, brother
Go easy on me
Go easy on me now

When the lights go out
Throw yourself about
The darkness where you learn to see
When the lights go out
Don't you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

Statues fall and democracy is flat on its back, Jack
We had it all, and what we had is not coming back, Zach
A big mouth says the people they don't want to be free, for free
A blackout is just an excuse ...???... we see

Go easy on me
Go easy on me, brother
Go easy on me
Go easy on me now

When the lights go out
When the lights go out
Throw yourself about
The darkness where you learn to see
When the lights go out
Don't you ever doubt
The light that we can really be

When the lights go out
Oh, oh
When the lights go out
Oh, oh
When the lights go out

When the lights go out
Blackout
It's clear who you are will appear
Blackout... no fear
So glad that we are all still here

When the lights go out

During the initial viewing I was put off kind of by the repetitive chorus but now I find myself singing it as I walk around the building at my job. Damn U2 damn you.

have to agree. I think this is Vertigo quality, but has a darker more serious tone which i love. This is on par with Vertigo and beats Elevation, kills Miracle and crushes Boots to a pile of dust...

This is the most 90s they've sounded since the 90s. That's my first impression.

It's hardly The Edge's best effort, but I think the guitar is alright! It does its job; it really is a bass and drums song overall, and the guitar does nothing to distract from that.

Also, this really sounds like a show opener. They haven't done something this groovy since Pop.

Am I crazy or does he rhyme Fred and Ned in the first verse and Jack and Zack in the second?

He does. It's weird but I'm cool with it.

"Statues fall"... Ha! What timing with all the Confederate statues being taken down since Charlottesville (which I might add came after this song was recorded).
