  1. the next recipient of the nobel peace prize.
    his efforts to relief african nations debts won't go unrecognized in the near future.
     
  2. I think your right, there's been a lot of talk about his work....maybe, maybe too much talk. This is not a rebels song, this is
    MUNDANE BLOODY MUNDANE, MUNDANE BLOODY MUNDANE......do dah daw da do da doo da doodinow, bowdditwang, ba doopidopadat...........



    I can't believe the news today
    Oh, I can't close my eyes
    And make it go away!

    How long?
    How long must we sing this song?
    How long?? How long??

    'Cause tonight, we can be as one
    Tonight


    Broken bottles under children's feet
    Bodies strewn across the dead end street!
    But I won't heed the battle call
    It puts my back up
    Puts my back up against the wall!


    Sunday, Bloody Sunday
    Sunday, Bloody Sunday
    Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Bloody Sunday)

    All right let's go !


    And the battle's just begun
    There's many lost, but tell me who has won?
    The trench is dug within our hearts
    And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
    Torn apart!

    Sunday, Bloody Sunday
    Sunday, Bloody Sunday

    How long?
    How long must we sing this song?
    How long?? How looong??

    'Cause tonight, we can be as one
    Toniight, tonight


    Sunday, Bloody Sunday (tonight)
    (tonight)Sunday, Bloody Sunday(tonight)

    (let's go!)


    Wipe the tears from your eyes
    Wipe your tears away
    Oh, wipe your tears away
    Oh, wipe your tears away
    ...Sunday, Bloody Sunday...
    Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
    ...Sunday, Bloody Sunday...
    Sunday, Bloody Sunday -Sunday, Bloody Sunday... Ah..
    Sunday, Bloody Sunday -Sunday, Bloody Sunday... Ah..


    And it's true we are immune
    When fact is fiction and TV reality!
    And today the millions cry
    We eat and drink while tomorrow they die!

    (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
    The real battle yet begun(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
    To claim the victory Jesus won(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
    On...
    ...Sunday, Bloody Sonday... Sunday, Bloody Sunday...
     
  3. Favourite, written and sung by the edge from what i gather, probably wrong, cant be bothered looking it up.

    Haunting vocals, by the edge, and melodies supplied by the rest of the gang-begs the question, why did the edge play the twang wap guitar, instead of , at the very least , writing more damn songs?

    oh, van deimens land.

    Hold me now, oh hold me now
    'Til this hour has gone around
    And I'm gone on the rising tide
    For to face Van Diemen's land
    It's a bitter pill I swallow here
    To be rent from one so dear
    We fought for justice and not for gain
    But the magistrate sent me away

    Now kings will rule and the poor will toil
    And tear their hands as they tear the soil
    But a day will come in this dawning age
    When an honest man sees an honest wage

    Hold me now, oh hold me now
    'til this hour has gone around
    And I'm gone on the rising tide
     
  4. The previous tunes, were actually good.



    This one, well, paint by numbers pop-crap really.
    Which is a shame, it had some potential to be kick ass at some point in its evolution.
    Beatiful day?


    The heart is a bloom
    Shoots up through the stony ground
    There's no room
    No space to rent in this town

    You're out of luck
    And the reason that you had to care
    The traffic is stuck
    And you're not moving anywhere

    You thought you'd found a friend
    To take you out of this place
    Someone you could lend a hand
    In return for grace

    It's a beautiful day
    Sky falls, you feel like
    It's a beautiful day
    Don't let it get away

    You're on the road
    But you've got no destination
    You're in the mud
    In the maze of her imagination

    You love this town
    Even if that doesn't ring true
    You've been all over
    And it's been all over you

    It's a beautiful day
    Don't let it get away
    It's a beautiful day

    Touch me
    Take me to that other place
    Teach me
    I know I'm not a hopeless case

    See the world in green and blue
    See China right in front of you
    See the canyons broken by cloud
    See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
    See the Bedouin fires at night
    See the oil fields at first light
    And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
    After the flood all the colors came out

    It was a beautiful day
    Don't let it get away
    Beautiful day

    Touch me
    Take me to that other place
    Reach me
    I know I'm not a hopeless case

    What you don't have you don't need it now
    What you don't know you can feel it somehow
    What you don't have you don't need it now
    Don't need it now
    Was a beautiful day
     
  5. Actually, this was also a great track, Angel of harlem.



    "Angel Of Harlem"

    It was a cold and wet December day
    When we touched the ground at JFK
    Snow was melting on the ground
    On BLS I heard the sound
    Of an angel

    New York, like a Christmas tree
    Tonight this city belongs to me
    Angel

    Soul love...this love won't let me go
    So long...angel of Harlem

    Birdland on fifty-three
    The street sounds like a symphony
    We got John Coltrane and a love supreme
    Miles says she's got to be an angel

    Lady Day got diamond eyes
    She sees the truth behind the lies
    Angel

    Soul love...this love won't let me go
    So long...angel of Harlem
    Angel of Harlem

    She says it's heart...heart and soul...
    Yeah yeah...(yeah)
    Yeah yeah...(right now)

    Blue light on the avenue
    God knows they got to you
    An empty glass, the lady sings
    Eyes swollen like a bee sting
    Blinded you lost your way
    Through the side streets and the alleyway
    Like a star exploding in the night
    Falling to the city in broad daylight
    An angel in Devil's shoes
    Salvation in the blues
    You never looked like an angel
    Yeah yeah...angel of Harlem

    Angel...angel of Harlem...
    [Repeat and fade]
