U2: How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

Postby Dixie » Sat Dec 04, 2004 12:36 pm

If you still don't have their new album, I highly encourage you to get it!!

I love their song Miracle Drug!!

I want to trip inside your head
Spend the day there...
To hear the things you haven't said
And see what you might see

I want to hear you when you call
Do you feel anything at all?
I want to see your thoughts take shape
And walk right out

Freedom has a scent
Like the top of a new born baby's head

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough I'm not giving up
On a miracle drug

Of science and the human heart
There is no limit
There is no failure here sweetheart
Just when you quit...

I am you and you are mine
Love makes nonsense of space
And time...will disappear
Love and logic keep us clear
Reason is on our side, love...

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, a miracle drug, a miracle drug

God I need your help tonight

Beneath the noise
Below the din
I hear a voice
It's whispering
In science and in medicine
"I was a stranger
You took me in"

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, miracle drug

Miracle, miracle drug

And the video of their first single, Vertigo, was shot near my place ImageImage

Uno, dos, tres, catorce,

[Spoken vocal]
Turn it up loud, Captain!

Lights go down it’s dark
The jungle is your head - can’t rule your heart
I’m feeling so much stronger than before
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul it can’t be bought
Your mind can wander

Hello, hello... (Hola)
I'm at a place called Vertigo (dónde estás)
It’s everything I wish I didn’t know
Except you give me something...
I can feeeel, feeeeeeel

The night is full of holes
There's bullets ripping sky of ink with gold
They twinkle as the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can’t dance - at least they know

I can’t stand the beat
I’m asking for the cheque
Girl with crimson nails
It's Jesus 'round her neck
Swinging to the music Whoooaaa
Swinging to the music Whoooaaa
Whoooaaa
Whoooaaa
Whoooaaa

Hello, hello... (Hola)
I'm at a place called Vertigo (dónde estás)
It’s everything I wish I didn’t know
But you give me something...
I can feeeel, feeeeeeel

Shake it...
Just for...
Jumping in... yeah

[Edge solo]

All of this... all of this can be yours
All of this... all of this can be yours
All of this... all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want and no one gets hurt

Hello, hello... (Hola)
We're at a place called Vertigo (dónde estás)
Lights go down and no one knows
That you give me something...
I can feel your love teaching me
Aaahhhhh-aaahhh-aaahhh-aaahhh...
Your love is teaching me
Aaahhhhh-aaahhh-aaahhh-aaahhh...
How to kneel, kneel

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
YEAH,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
YEEEAAAAH!

Really?? You haven't?? Never? Ok then I recommend that you download one of their most well-known songs, With or Without You. I'm sure you'll love it! Try it and tell me what you think! Image

Elba, very nice! :D

I am really surprised and dissapointed with their new material, especially Vertigo, it's so sub-standard especially given their previous works, U2 are one of the greatest bands EVER and my favourites are Stay (faraway, so close) and Bad but this new stuff is poor, maybe given time it will grow on me and I hope it does. Being Irish I am always proud that they're also Irish.
