Any ideas what the new lyrics are in the verses this tour? I don't know if Bono is giving it an updated feel or if he is just making words up on the spot. I have a bootleg of SD1 and Bono is singing about "The eye of a hurricane, I will feel no pain".....

It was like that early on, but more recently he's singing the normal lyrics.

my 2nd song in AB

it's probably one of the best lyrics ever...

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest.
It's no secret that ambition bites the nails of success.
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief;
All kill their inspiration and sing about the grief.

Love this song. Love it live. Zoo TV version is still the best, but I'm really happy with the Vertigo version as well.

The opening to the Elevation version is heaven. The actualy song "The Fly" on Elevation isn't as good as ZooTV or the studio, but the opening...

The Fly is one of the best songs in history. From the fucking chaos and bad-ass-ness of the intro and verse to the amazing chorus, with Edge's falsetto, giving a sense of reason to the whole thing, while Bono comes back with his lines. The two offset vocal lines in the chorus are just magical. And Edge's solo that goes through the same process: dark and bad-ass to a higher state at the last chorus. its so good!
