I can't believe WAS is out before Unknown Caller. UC had potential with pleasant music, but the lyrics stink on ice. I'm on the west coast time zone right now so I've missed the last few votes. I need to get my shit together.

Looks like it's impossible for Cedars to stay any longer (unfortunately). Unknown Caller it is.

I enjoy Cedars quite a bit, but it doesn't deserve to be in the top three when Fez, Moment of Surrender and No Line On The Horizon (dang these long titles!) are in the same running.

Cedars is probably Bono's most accomplished lyrical moment since frickin 1997. And it's getting shellacked while a song with such splendiferous lines like REBOOT YOURSELF -- MOVE TO TRASH -- OH OHHHH gets a free pass. Not cool

I like the song, and the lyrics aren't bad...but they're not THAT good.

Well done Cedarse for escaping elimination! Will vote to save it again this round, even though it is unlikely.

Um...did I miss something? I'm looking at the vote tally for the last round and it says 18 votes for both WAS and COL. However, COL is in this round. Well glad to see it survived to this round. So again Unknown Caller.

Because Unknown Caller actually has a good guitar melody and a great solo. While the other is an absolute bore.

I see nothing wrong with that couplet. It's extremely vivid.

Grammatical inconsistencies are more forgivable when writing in character, as Bono does on this song.

Damnit, sucks that WAS is gone. No way should Cedars perish before Unknown Caller or Breathe.

Well, he's supposedly in character for MOS as well, but that doesn't stop people from freaking out about the ATM line (though I can't recall if you're one them).
