Shoot the blue sky !?!

I've never understood why Bono used Bullet as a verb in "Bullet the blue sky"...


Ps: I hope this is the right forum for this kind of question...

this thread could also go in "It's a musical journey" which is a forum especially to discuss lyrics etc

so, if no one answers it in here I'll move it to that forum

Thanks for solving a longtime mystery for me! I always thought he used "bullet" as a noun as opposed to the blue sky - to further create the atmosphere of the song, and to emphasize what the song was about.

I had no idea it was a verb.
