    I really loved this whole sequence... full band wave would've been better, but then it wouldn't have translated that well into Bullet.
    (Can somebody please transcript/paraphrase Bono's rant in here? I like to brag that I understand english, but I really struggle to understand it sometimes )

    This is mainly night one, with a couple corrections from night two after the solo. He seemed to trip up over himself after the solo on the first night, but he pretty much nailed it on the second night.

    "So this boy comes up to me,
    His face red like a rose on a thorn bush,
    A young man with a young man's blush,
    Young boy looked a lot like me.

    And he's pulling the dollar bills outta my hand,
    Patting me down, patting me down,
    Says you have more than you need!
    You got 100, you got 200, 300

    And I can see those private planes,
    I can see those private planes,
    And you're in one of those private planes aren't you?
    And he's right.

    And I'm off a flight in Davos, Switzerland,
    I'm in the lobby of the Belvedere Hotel,
    Where a jazz-man breathes into his saxophone,
    While everybody stares at their cell phone,
    And in my ear the young boy groans,

    Outside it's America!
    Outside it's America!

    [Solo]

    As I step outside, snow is falling like a curtain of silence
    I'm on the other side of the barricade now,
    I'm on the other side of the barricade to myself, aged 19, n-n-n-n-nineteen

    And I try to tell the young man,
    that ideas deserve a plan,
    And to build a better world,
    It's gonna take every woman and man

    It's gonna take you, me,
    The reds and the greens,
    The now's and forever's and the yet-to-be's
    The "where ya going?"
    The "where ya been?"
    The living and the dead, and the unseen
    The somebodies,
    The nobodies,
    The who's who,
    The Gentile and the Jew,
    The gay's and the straights,
    The sevens and the eights,
    The nines and the tens,
    The Dollars and the Yens,

    And I feel like a fraud, but I know that I'm not,
    I try to do my very best,
    with everything I've got, which is not a lot,
    to not get caught,
    with my pants down,
    and my hands up, my hands up

    Any second now,
    Things are going to get rough,
    So I run, I run, I run,
    Into the arms, of America
  2. Seems hep was doing it at the same time
  3. Yeah, it works really well. Amazing how good it can sound when you don't hear it every night. Take note, band.
  4. 2:13 Illuminati?
  5. Originally posted by flowerchild:I really like miracle drug, but the new version is even better. bit faster and the changed lyrics sound better melodically, don't drag it out so much (can anyone let me know what bono's singing? couldn't quite understand it all).


    anyone?

    ps: tim, wow, thanks for that transcript of bullet. I really, really dig that new part of the song"
  6. The songs are in your eyes
    I see them when you smile
    The song are in your eyes
    Yeah, yeah

    I've had enough of romantic love,
    I'd give it up, yeah I'd give it up
    For a miracle, a miracle drug

    That's about all that's changed, Bono playing cut and paste with the song's chorus.
  7. the very first video footage I see of night 2 now......... good lord it is outstanding
    and damned be my health condition, I will NOT give away my GA tic for Cologne 2... so close down there

    That's the view I was looking for. Could do with brighter lights but otherwise a nice arrangement. Excellent filming as ever.
    The LED's aren't bright enough, I agree. The screen should probably remain red, with the flash coming from the main stage, like when he sings "I woke up at the moment..." in The Miracle. Or, use the tubes.


  9. They are killing the atmosphere at many shows IMO

    [mind-blowing Bono rant]

    I really like this! I also like how they're playing the beginning of this song like they did in the 80's and not like they did on the Zoo TV --> Vertigo tours
