"It's got a really spongy sound. We've found that when you're men, the slower tempos can be funky."

"FEZ - Being Born"

"It's about this character who is going a bit AWOL. He takes a road trip, who just takes off to rediscover who he is and to refind his first love. In my head, the traffic cop is from Morocco, he certainly is African-French, he heads down through France, through Spain towards Cadiz. He's heading for a little place near Cadiz, a little surfing town called Tarifa. At night, when the sun goes, you can see across the water to the hills of Africa. Africa and Europe are only eight miles, thirteen kilometers from each other. The real important thing to know about this song is the sense of speed and this kind of primeval drive to get back to your essence." - Bono, No Line On The Horizon 2009

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound

Oh oh oh oh

Six o'clock
On the autoroute
Burning rubber, burning chrome
Bay of Cadiz and ferry home
Atlantic sea, cut glass
African sun at last

Oh oh oh oh

Lights flash past
Like memories
A speeding head, a speeding heart
I'm being born, a bleeding start
The engines roar, blood-curdling wail
Head first, then foot
Then heart sets sail
