"[W]e called it Achtung Baby and dressed up like pop stars to get people away from that because there was just so much melancholy in it. With U2, the packaging is often disinformation." — Bono

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here to stay

Father, father
We don't need to escalate
And war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here to stay

Picket lines won't block our way
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me and you can see what's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on

Father, father
Everybody thinks we're wrong
But who are they to judge us
Together we can be strong
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here to stay

Picket lines won't block our way
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me so you can see what's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on

(This song, written by Marvin Gaye, was performed by Bono, the Edge, and Chris Martin and can be found on the single What's Going On)
