It's in U2's great rhythm section that the band finds its sexuality and its dangerousness. -- Bruce Springsteen, at U2's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction

Handwritten Lyrics

Monday morning
Eighteen years of dawning
I said how long
Said how long

It was one dull morning
I woke the world with bawling
I was so sad
They were so glad

I was of the feeling
It was out of control
I had the opinion it was
Out of control

Boys and girls
Go to school, and girls
They make children
Not like this one

I was of the feeling
I was out of control
I had the opinion it was
Out of control

I'm out of control
You say
Out of control
I'm out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control

I fought fate
There's blood at the garden gate
The man said childhood
It's in his childhood

One day I'll die
The choice will not be mine
Will it be too late
You can't fight fate

I was of the feeling
It was out of control
I had the opinion
It was out of control
