is "Elevation" about Bono overcoming impotence?

yeah, check this out dawg,

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here

At corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
Eclipse
You elevate my soul

I've got no self control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation

A star
Lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you can educate my mind

Explain all these controls
Can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation

A mole
Digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation

I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation

Love
Lift me up out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you

A mole
Digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation

Higher now
In the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation

Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation


irrefutable evidence here, no doubt

is that what Dave Evans was on about during the Grammys with all that orgasmotron talk? he was fucking up Bono's shit with that, laughing and smirking the whole time...

this must be why he "hangs" out with Republicans now, in hopes of gettting some free Viagra samples from Bob Dole

You've got to admit the man is on to something, either that or he is just trying to say something about himself.

Wanderer-
At first I started getting mad reading your thread..
then-
I read the lyrics and thought perhaps, maybe for a moment-you were correct.
My conclusion is that Bono is a sexually religous-fellow.

Back when ATYCLB was first released, another person had a similar discussion - asking if "Elevation" was really about sex/sexual climax.

That person was flamed to a crisp and teased mercilessly until our voices were hoarse and our fingers numb.

Now, 1.5 years later, The Wanderer posts a similar thread. Not only is the though not original but it is just as silly as the post made back in 2000.

Ergo, the asexual creature known as The Wanderer should be flamed just as much as the poor soul was back then (and it wasn't me - I'm too dim-witted to pick up on sexual overtones in anything...and yes, that DOES explain a lot).

LOL-- no, at least not judging by all the, eh, elevated pics of him from this last tour.

You don't have to be Henry Kissenger to figure out that a more prosperous world is a more secure world; a more educated world is a more tolerant world; and a more healthy world is a more stable world, and I think that would be a fitting memorial to those who lost their lives on Sept. 11th. ~Bono on Leno, Thanksgiving 2001

This is a favorite discussion in PLEBA.

No, I don't think it is.

I dig my toes into the sand. The ocean looks like a 1,000 diamonds strewn across a blue plain. I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless. And in this moment I am happy... happy.

Love,

I take it you've never had a look at the Elevated thread

And there's also the fact that Ali keeps popping out babies every now and then...

Elevation is a major turn-on song.
I wonder why...
