"Radio should be stimulating people rather than actually killing them into a state of apathy, which I think has happened." — Adam

"They hated that song. I spent a month on it and I still don't think it was as realised as it could've been. The Americans had heard it and said, 'That's your radio song there,' because they were having trouble with some of the more industrial elements. It's almost like a covers band doing a U2 moment. Maybe we tried too hard." - Steve Lillywhite, Q 2002

You're innocence, I'm experience
The windows of my room all look over you
Now the night has turned a different kind of blue

The winds turn as you walk away
Black, was I asking you to stay

I'm a sinner, you're the holy child
But your secret heart is a savage scratching at my door
And your lips of blood have me screaming out
For more and more

You cried, I came for you
I lied, you made it true

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who would take the place of me

Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Only the trees, the river laughing
As she turns away and the car door slams

And you're back, you scratch, your tear off
Your relief for love
And you beg, steal, lie
Like a thief for love

She says, come on now love
Don't you look back
Child that you love

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee
Oh no no

I want you now, where are you now
Days unseen and the nights turn mean
Were you talking to me
Was it someone else who could hear you better
When you cried for me
But who was she with, not what you said
Follow you down to the wind, baby

Don't turn around
Don't turn around again
Don't turn around your gypsy heart
Don't turn around
I won't turn around again
Don't turn around again and don't look back
Come on now, love
Don't you look back, child, oh no

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
