"[M]usic has lost the personality of human beings and musicians. It's got so shiny that it's as if there's a surface of Formica over it. And it's something that doesn't let you in."

-- Edge, 2003

"Wire"

Innocent and in a sense I am
Guilty of the crime that's now in hand
Such a nice day to throw your life away
Such a nice day to let it go

Cold in his eyes, I can't believe it
Cold in his heart and soul
Heart and soul

Cold man, such a cold heart
Such a cold man, I watch you tear your self apart
So lay me down, my soul to keep
So lay me down, the longest sleep
Oh, the longest sleep

In I come and out you go you get
Here we are again, now place your bets
Is this the time, the time to win or lose
Is this the time, the time to choose

Cold in his eyes, I can't believe it
So deep inside a cold fire
Cold in his heart and soul

Don't do it, don't do it
Don't do it, don't do it
Any time you're on the earth is kissing time
You can't take me
That's right
But you can keep me going

It's so white trash if you've got the cash
A cartoon cutout, a cut throat let out
I'm on your side, we're both right
Hey, I'm alright, Jack, you get off my back
I'm no dope, I'll give you hope
Here's the rope, here's the rope
Now swing on it
