"Trying to film musicians making music is a difficult thing. It's a little like making sausages. You shouldn't ever see how they're made." — 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

Soul, soul
You elevate my
The goal is elevation
Get it up

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
I've got no self-control
Digging like a mole
Now, going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation

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

A mole digging in a hole
Digging up my soul
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

A mole digging in a hole
Digging up my soul
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation

She lifts it up
Love now, woman
You just love now, love now
You can go now, uh huh
Fill it up now
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
C'mon
