You don't want to start having work done on your face just to get on MTV. There has to be a way to be acceptable with dignity. -- Adam

"I'm delighted about this one. It's been around since the last record. All we had was an amazing kebourd part of Brian [Eno]'s and a rhythm section Larry and Daniel [Lanois] had worked up. I fought for hours trying to figure out what to do with this fantastic raw track. We cracked it this time." - The Edge, Q 2004

Lay down
Lay down
Lay your sweet lovely on the ground
Lay your love on the track
You're gonna break the monster's back

Hey Nicholas

Lay down your treasure
Lay it down now brother
You don't have time
For a jealous lover
As you enter this life
I pray you depart
With a wrinkled face
And a brand new heart

I don't know if I can make it
I'm not easy on my knees
Here's my heart, why don't you break it
We need some release, release, release
We need love and peace
Love and peace

You know it, Willie

Lay down
Lay down your guns
All you daughters of Zion
All you Abraham sons

I don't know if I can make it
I'm not easy on my knees
Here's my heart, why don't you break it
I need some release, release, release
We need love and peace
Love and peace

Baby don't fight
We can talk this thing through
Between me and you
I can call or you'll phone
The TV is still on
But the troops on the ground
And the troops on the ground
Are about to dig in
And I wonder where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love
Love
