"An Cat Dubh"

"The sequence that blows my mind is 'An Cat Dubh,' the black cat, to 'Into The Heart.' It's astonishing. Just the violences of Edge's guitar playing, this image of temptation, a cat sleeping beside a dead bird in suburban Dublin, and playing with it, the way they do, cat stalks the bird, kills it, and then shakes it about. And somehow knowing the sexual side of that, desire and innocence, and the way it can play with you. And the beautiful lyrical guitar, Edge breaking the rules of punk rock and playing a kind of guitar theme, a solo almost, that went on for an age. That's amazing." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Say good night
She waits for me to turn out the light
Really still
She waits to break my will

Yes, and I know the truth about you
She cat

And in the daylight
A black bird makes a violent sight
And when she is done
She sleeps beside the one

Yes, and I know the truth about you
She cat
