"People talk about U2 being a 'live group' . . . because Bono will jump off the balcony to make a point -- but it's not me at all, it's Larry's bass drum."

The Cry/The Electric Co. Lyrics

Found On:


Under A Blood Red Sky (1983)

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.

"The Cry/The Electric Co." (live from Red Rocks)

Somebody cry
Somebody cry
Somebody cry
Somebody try
Somebody try
Somebody try something quick
Don't you look back
Don't you look back
Don't you look back
Somebody cried
'Cause somebody died
And somebody cry
'Cause I can't see why and what for

Bring it up, pick it up

Boy, stupid boy
Don't sit at the table until you're able to
Toy, broken toy
You shout and shout, you're spoon fed

Til you don't know
Electric Co.
Til you don't know
Electric Co.

Red, running red
You bleed for real so I can feel
A hole in your head
You don't shout, you're spoon-fed

Til you don't know
Electric Co.
Til you don't know
Electric Co.

Take it up

But if you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
But if you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
