"11 O'Clock Tick Tock"

"The trend of the day was recording studios without any room reverb or ambience. The playing room at Windmill Lane was designed to be totally dead, and you can hear it on the drums. It wasn't until the 'Boy' sessions that we figured out that we had to pull the durm kit into the entrance hall, after the receptionist had gone hoe, to get a decent drum sound. With its three storey stairwell and stone and tiled surfaces, it was a great live room. Many bands came to Windmill Lane looking for that big U2 drum sound only to stracth their heads when they heard a drum sound more like Steely Dan coming back off tape." - The Edge, Boy 2008

It's cold outside, it gets so hot in here
The boys and girls collide to the music in my ear
I hear the children crying and I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying, take me home

A painted face and I know we haven't long
We thought that we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong
I hear the children crying and I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying, take me home

Sad song sad song
Sad song sad song
Sad song sad song
Sad song sad song
