Today's song for me is God Part II. 

In the music video in my head, I stand up from my chair at work and in slow motion swipe all the papers off my desk as I walk out the door defiantly for the last time leaving a sea of debris behind me. Ah the dream.

Very underrated song....

Don't believe the devil
I don't believe his book
But the truth is not the same
Without the lies he made up

Don't believe in excess
Success is to give
Don't believe in riches
But you should see where I live
I, I believe in love

Don't believe in forced entry
Don't believe in rape
But every time she passes by
Wild thoughts escape...............

The dichotomous lyrics are so completely powerful....I love rattle n' hum for one of these aspects......

Bono wrote some intense lyrics....and imagery still stuck within my head.....even after all these years.....

Or....since we are on the Rattle n' Hum track......

How about Hawkmoon 269.....and such lyrical imagery that would make most poets cry......

such as ....

Like coming home
And you don't know where you've been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love (I need your love)

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love

Like the hot needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love (I need your love)
When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

Like thunder needs rain
Like a preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a sheet stained
I need your love
I need your love

Like a needle needs a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love

Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
I need your love
