Bullet The Blue Sky Lyrics

"Bullet The Blue Sky" (live from the Point Depot)

In the howling wind
Comes a stinging rain
I see it driving nails
Into souls on the tree of pain
From the firefly
A red orange glow
I see the face of fear
Running scared in the valley below

The sky, the sky
Bullet the blue sky
The sky
Bullet the blue sky
The sky
Bullet the blue
The sky
Bullet the blue
The sky

In the locust wind
Comes a rattle and hum
Jacob wrestled the angel
The angel was overcome
You plant a demon seed
You raise a flower of fire
See them burning crosses
See the flames, higher and higher

The sky, the sky
Bullet the blue sky
The sky
Bullet the blue sky
The sky
Bullet the blue
The sky
Bullet the blue
The sky

11 O’clock Tick

So this guy comes up to me, yeah
So this rock ’n’ roll star comes up to me
His face red like a rose on a thorn bush
Like all the colours of a royal flush
And he's peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down
One hundred, two hundred
Make it three hundred
No, I changed my mind
Two hundred, one hundred
Deutsche mark, yen
A dime, a penny, a penny or a pound
A penny or a pound, a penny or a pound
Money makes the world go round
World go round
Not my world, mister
I feel a long way from the hills of San Salvador
Crossing the mud huts
Crossing the mud huts
Where the children sleep
Through the allies and the quiet city streets
Take the stair case, take the stair case
Open the door
Man with a saxophone screams
Open the door, open the door
Outside it’s America
Outside it’s America
Yeah, not tonight it’s not
No way

Yeah, not tonight
Tonight it’s the USSR
Germany, east and west
Italy, Yugoslavia, Romania
And god knows where else
They’ve got their tape recorders turned on
Well, happy Christmas from U2 to you
This is Dublin City
This is where we come from
Still, we run and we run
Into the arms of America
