"It's almost Communism in a way. Not that there's this sort of artificial 'everything must be equal thing,' it's just the respect for everybody, and that really counts, I think."

"Until The End Of The World" (live from Slane)

"The song was written at the same time as one of Ireland's greatest poets, Brendan Kennelly, was writing his great 'Book Of Judas,' a series of poems about the betrayal of Christ. It was an epic coincidence, because I was given the poems to review after album was finished. The whole Zoo TV tour that followed owes much to one of Brendan Kennelly's great lines: 'the best way to serve the age is to betray it.' That became our theme for the next couple years, to do everything U2 weren't supposed to do. We had a deep-seated belief that the spirit of the band was true enough and strong enough and imperishable enough to not rely on an obvious guitar sounds or signatures to come through. It would come through anyways. It would come through a thick prison wall." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Break it now
Shoot my soul, can't hang myself
Really want it in my soul
You shot me in myself
Baby I killed my soul
I want to hurt you, you so bad
I want to shoot you, baby
I want to
Yeah

Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold just killing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and groom
We broke the bread, we drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you
You're still talking about the end of the world

I took the money
I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You led me on with those innocent eyes
You know I love the element of surprise
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips, broke your heart
You, you were acting like it was
The end of the world

Love, love, love
Love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love
Love, love

In my dreams I was drowning my sorrows
My sorrows, they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret waves of joy
I reached out to the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait
'Til the end of the world

Alright now
She's my hope
