There's a lot going on, but it's not really on the surface. So in this instance, I think this song was sort of tailor-made for me, in that it's a noncommunication.-- Edge, on "Numb," 2002

The sick rose
O rose thou art sick 
The invisible worm 
That flies in the night 
In the howling storm
Has found out thy bed 
Of crimson joy
And his dark secret love 
Does thy life destroy
 
You don't know how you took it
You just know what you got 
Oh Lordy you've been stealing 
From the thieves and you got caught 
In the headlights of a stretch car
You're a star  
 
Dressing like your sister
Living like a tart 
They don't know what you're doing
Babe, it must be art 
You're a headache in a suitcase
You're a star  
 
Oh no, don't be shy
You don't have to go blind 
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me  
 
They want you to be Jesus
They'll go down on one knee 
But they'll want their money back 
If you're alive at thirty-three 
And you're turning tricks 
With your crucifix
You're a star  
 
Oh no, don't be shy
You don't have to go blind 
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me  
(This remix features Gavin Friday and Régine Chassagne on lead vocals, and Gavin Friday recites William Blake's The Sick Rose at the start)
