Go easy on me
Easy on me, brother
Go easy on me
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 extinction event, we see

Go easy on me
Easy on me, brother
Go easy on me
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

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
Hmmm

Maybe it's a song about getting shit on after the Apple release.

Love the song. Only thing I don't like, is that Bono should not have round glasses singing this.

There's such a groovy swagger to it in a natural way. I don't think anyone would quite expect a U2 song to sound like this and (I think) that's a good thing.

It's very fresh and modern sounding in a time where new rock doesn't really have much of a sonic identity.

And keep in mind everyone- this is just the tease for the album/lead single. I'm excited!

Bono metaphorically referring to the band

As I was listening to my U2 playlist before the live stream Pride came on and I thought to myself "wow, here is a band who released this song in 1984 and still have people in 2017 excited about a new release." Pretty remarkable.
