"And then the comic megalomania of 'The Ocean.' 'I felt the world could go far if they listened to what I said. The future is laid out in that record!" - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

A picture in grey, Dorian Gray
Just me, by the sea
And I felt like a star
I thought the world could go far
If they listened to what I said

The Ocean, the Ocean
Washes my feet
Splashes the soul of my shoes

When I looked around
The world couldn't be found
Just me by the sea
