"We wanted [Bono] to play guitar, although he insisted on singing. Now we know why -- because he didn't have to buy or move any equipment."

Zoo Station Lyrics

Found On:


Window In The Skies (2006)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Zoo Station" (live from Buenos Aires)

"One of the striking things about Berlin is that they have a zoo in the middle of the city. It was bombed during the war and there's a story that when people got up the next day to wander through the rubble of their lives, there were giraffes and lions and elephants roaming around. That story really stuck with me. There was a subway station called Zoo Station, because it stopped at the zoo. And the subway line that went in there was the U2 line. It was written as an opening track, the beasts breaking out of their cages. Really it's a riff rather than a song. Flood, Danny and Brian and the whole production team came together on that. You get to see what we were all capable of. There is a sense of humour and playfulness and curiosity in the lyric." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

I'm ready, ready for the laughing gas
I'm ready, I'm ready for what's next
Ready to duck, ready to dive
Ready to say 'I'm glad to be alive'
I'm ready, ready for the push
The cool of the night
The warmth of the breeze
I'll be crawling around
On my hands and knees

Zoo Station
Zoo Station

I'm ready, ready for the gridlock
I'm ready to take it to the street
Ready for the shuffle, ready for the deal
Ready to let go of the steering wheel
I'm ready for the crush

Just down the line
Zoo Station
I'll be on time
Zoo Station

Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, it's not alright
Alright, alright

Time is a train, makes the future the past
Leaves you standing in the station
Your face pressed up against the glass

Zoo Station
Zoo Station
C'mon baby, I'm waiting on time
Zoo Station
C'mon baby, we'll make it on time
Zoo Station

Alright now, oh yeah
Daddy's coming home now
Hang on, baby Sian
Hang on, baby Levi
