"The thing that's most oppressive in our era is celebrity. And that's why people want to burn my house down. Celebrity is ugly. What it does is belittle real life. Which is where real heroism is." — Bono

"It's a tune called 'Elevation.' It's in its raw form. I think it's gonna go off for us. It's got a really spongy sound. We've found that when you're men, the slower tempos can be funky." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2001

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here
At the corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
Eclipse
You elevate my soul, soul
You elevate my

A star lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you could educate my mind
Explain all these controls
I can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation

A mole, living in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high, elevation

Love, lift me up out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you

Soul, I've got no self-control
Been living like a mole
Going down now, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high, elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
