"A Celebration"

"'A Celebration' was our attempt at a stopgap single between 'October' and the next record 'War.' You can hear in it a foreshadowing of the more bare-knuckled sound and attitude of the latter album. It's a little fraught, and shows the signs of being put together in the middle of a touring cycle. It always took us a while after a tour to adjust our intensity level down to the one you need for studio work." - The Edge, War 2008

Shake, shake
Go go

I believe in the celebration
I believe it set me free
I believe you can loose these chains
I believe you can dance with me
Dance with me

Shake, shake
Shake, shake

I believe in the third world war
I believe in the atomic bomb
I believe in the powers that be but they won't overpower me
And you can go there too
And you can go, go, go, go

Shake, shake
Shake, shake

We can't stop the tide and everything goes round and round
And we don't have the time to watch the world go tumbling down
Go go

I believe in the bells of Christchurch ringing for this land
I believe in the cells of Mountjoy there is an honest man

And you can go there too
And you can go, go, go, go
And you

I believe in the walls of Jericho
Can go there too
I believe they're coming down
I believe in this city's children
And you
I believe the trumpet's sound
Can go, go, go, go
And you can go there too
And you can go, go, go, go
And you
I believe in what I'm doing
Can go there too
