Where the Streets Have no Name (5:37) :

I want to run

I want to hide

I want to tear down the walls

That hold me inside

I want to reach out

And touch the flame

Where the streets have no name

I want to feel sunlight on my face

I see the dust cloud disappear

Without a trace

I want to take shelter from the poison rain

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name

We're still building

Then burning down love

Burning down love

And when I go there

I go there with you

It's all I can do

The city's aflood

And our love turns to rust

We're beaten and blown by the wind

Trampled in dust

I'll show you a place

High on a desert plain

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name

We're still building

Then burning down love

Burning down love

And when I go there

I go there with you

It's all I can do

Our love turns to rust

We're beaten and blown by the wind

Blown by the wind

Oh, and I see love

See our love turn to rust

We're beaten and blown by the wind

Blown by the wind

Oh, when I go there

I go there with you

It's all I can do

 


I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For (4:37) :

I have climbed highest mountain

I have run through the fields

Only to be with you

Only to be with you

I have run

I have crawled

I have scaled these city walls

These city walls

Only to be with you

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips

Felt the healing in her fingertips

It burned like fire

This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels

I have held the hand of a devil

It was warm in the night

I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come

Then all the colors will bleed into one

Bleed into one

Well yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you

Loosed the chains

Carried the cross

Of my shame, Of my shame

You know I believed it

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for

But I still haven't found...

...what I'm looking for...

 


 

With or Without You (4:56) :

See the stone set in your eyes

See the thorn twist in your side

I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate

On a bed of nails she makes me wait

And I wait without you

With or without you

With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore

You give it all but I want more

And I'm waiting for you

With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

My hands are tied

My body bruised, she's got me with

Nothing to win and

Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

With or without you

With or without you

I can't live

With or without you

With or without you

 


 

Bullet the Blue Sky (4:32) :

In the howling wind comes a stinging rain

See it driving nails

Into the souls on the tree of pain

From the firefly, a red orange glow

See the face of fear

Running scared in the valley below

Bullet the blue sky

Bullet the blue sky

Bullet the blue

Bullet the blue

In the locust wind comes a rattle and hum

Jacob wrestled the angel

And the angel was overcome

You plant a demon seed

You raise a flower of fire

See them burning crosses

See the flames higher and higher

Bullet the blue sky

Bullet the blue sky

Bullet the blue

Bullet the blue

This guy comes up to me

His face red like a rose on a thorn bush

Like all the colors of a royal flush

And he's peeling off those dollar bills

Slapping them down

One hundred, two hundred

And I can see those fighter planes

And I can see those fighter planes

Across the mud huts

where the children sleep

Through the alleys of a quiet city street

You take the staircase to the first floor

Turn the key and slowly unlock the door

As a man breathes into a saxophone

And through the walls

you hear the city groan

Outside is America

Outside is America

Across the field

you see the sky ripped open

See the rain through a gaping wound

Pounding on the women and children

Who run

Into the arms

Of America

 


 

Running to Stand Still (4:18) :

And so she woke up

Woke up from where she was

Lying still

Said I gotta do something

About where we're going

Step on a steam train

Step out of the driving rain, maybe

Run from the darkness in the night

Singing ha, ah la la la de day

Ah da da da de day

Ah la la de day

Sweet the sin

Bitter taste in my mouth

I see seven towers

But I only see one way out

You got to cry without weeping

Talk without speaking

Scream without raising your voice

You know I took the poison

From the poison stream

Then I floated out of here

Singing...ha la la la de day

Ha la la la de day

Ha la la de day

She runs through the streets

With her eyes painted red

Under black belly of cloud in the rain

In through a doorway she brings me

White gold and pearls stolen from the sea

She is raging

She is raging

And the storm blows up in her eyes

She will...

Suffer the needle chill

She's running to stand...

Still.

 


Red Hill Mining Town (4:52) :

From father to son

The blood runs thin

See faces frozen still

Against the wind

The seam is split

The coal face cracked

The lines are long

There's no going back

Through hands of steel

And heart of stone

Our labour day

Has come and gone

Yeah you leave me holding on

In Red Hill Town

See lights go down, I'm...

Hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

I'm still waiting

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

The glass is cut

The bottle run dry

Our love runs cold

In the caverns of the night

We're wounded by fear

Injured in doubt

I can lose myself

You I can't live without

Yeah you keep me holding on

In Red Hill Town

See the lights go down on

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

I'm still waiting

Hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

Hold on to

We'll scorch the earth

Set fire to the sky

We stoop so low to reach so high

A link is lost

The chain undone

We wait all day

For night to come

And it comes

Like a hunter child

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

I'm still waiting

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

Love...slowly stripped away

Love...has seen its better day

Hanging on

The lights go out on Red Hill

The lights go down on Red Hill

Lights go down on Red Hill town

The lights go down on Red Hill

 


 

In God's Country (2:57) :

Yeah

Desert sky

Dream beneath a desert sky

The rivers run but soon run dry

We need new dreams tonight

Desert rose

Dreamed I saw a desert rose

Dress torn in ribbons and in bows

Like a siren she calls to me

Sleep comes like a drug

In God's Country

Sad eyes, crooked crosses

In God's Country

Set me alight

We'll punch a hole right through the night

Everyday the dreamers die

See what's on the other side

She is liberty

And she comes to rescue me

Hope, faith, her vanity

The greatest gift is gold

Sleep comes like a drug

In God's Country

Sad eyes, crooked crosses

In God's Country

Naked flame

She stands with a naked flame

I stand with the sons of Cain

Burned by the fire of love

Burned by the fire of love

 


 

Trip Through Your Wires (3:32) :

In the distance

She saw me coming 'round

I was calling out

I was calling out

Still shaking

Still in pain

You put me back together again

I was cold and you clothed me honey

I was down and you lifted me honey

Angel

Angel or devil

I was thirsty

And you wet my lips

You, I'm waiting for you

You, you set my desire

I trip through your wires

I was broken, bent out of shape

I was naked in the clothes you made

Lips were dry, throat like rust

You gave me shelter

from the heat and the dust

No more water in the well

No more water, water

Angel

Angel or devil

I was thirsty

And you wet my lips

You, I'm waiting for you

You, You set my desire

I trip through your wires

(All I need...All I need)

Thunder,

thunder on the mountain

There's a rain cloud in the desert sky

In the distance

she saw me coming 'round

I was calling out

I was calling out

 


One Tree Hill (5:23) :

We turn away to face the cold,

enduring chill

As the day begs the night for mercy love

The sun so bright it leaves no shadows

Only scars carved into stone

On the face of earth

The moon is up and over

One Tree Hill

We see the sun go down in your eyes

You run like river, on like a sea

You run like a river runs to the sea

And in the world a heart of darkness

A fire zone

Where poets speak their heart

Then bleed for it

Jara sang, his song a weapon

In the hands of love

You know his blood still cries

From the ground

It runs like a river runs to the sea

It runs like a river to the sea

I don't believe in painted roses

Or bleeding hearts

While bullets rape the night

of the merciful

I'll see you again

When the stars fall from the sky

And the moon has turned red

Over One Tree Hill

We run like a river

Run to the sea

We run like a river to the sea

And when it's raining

Raining hard

That's when the rain will

Break my heart

Raining...raining in the heart

Raining in your heart

Raining...raining to your heart

Raining, raining...raining

Raining to your heart

Raining...raining in your heart

Raining in your heart..

To the sea

Oh great ocean

Oh great sea

Run to the ocean

Run to the sea

 


 

Exit (4:13) :

You know he got the cure

You know he went astray

He used to stay awake

To drive the dreams he had away

He wanted to believe

In the hands of love

His head it felt heavy

As he cut across the land

A dog started crying

Like a broken hearted man

At the howling wind

At the howling wind

He went deeper into black

Deeper into white

Could see the stars shining

Like nails in the night

He felt the healing

Healing, healing

Healing hands of love

Like the stars shiny shiny

From above

Hand in the pocket

Finger on the steel

The pistol weighed heavy

His heart he could feel

Was beating, beating

Beating, beating oh my love

Oh my love, oh my love

Oh my love

My love

Saw the hands that build

Can also pull down

The hands of love

 


 

Mothers of the Disappeared (5:14) :

Midnight, our sons and daughters

Were cut down and taken from us

Hear their heartbeat

We hear their heartbeat

In the wind we hear their laughter

In the rain we see their tears

Hear their heartbeat

We hear their heartbeat

Night hangs like a prisoner

Stretched over black and blue

Hear their heartbeat

We hear their heartbeat

In the trees our sons stand naked

Through the walls our daughters cry

See their tears in the rainfall
