"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

Hello, this is evil Bono. We have the Edge, we want the key. You are surrounded and not even Lara Croft can help you now.
In world news tonight, the evil U2 have been spotted floating in the skies, wreaking havoc in the city.
This is Lara Croft. If you can get me out of here, you can have your key back. This is where I start to have fun.

Elevation

Higher, 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
Been living like a mole
Now, going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation
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
Now, going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I so high
Elevation
Elevation

Love, lift me 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
Elevation
