Song Lyrics

Bono howling = Bold

Search on, man
God speed and forgive you

Moonshine night
Mountain village
Insane in the woods
In the deep trees

Under the moon
Beneath the stars
They reel and dance
The young folk

Led to the lake
By a king and queen
Oh, I want to be there
I want us to be there
Beside the lake
Beneath the moon
Cool and swollen
Dripping its hot liquor
Sss…

Frozen moment by a lake
A knife has been stolen
The death of the snake

I know the impossible sea
When the dogs bark
I am a death bird
Naughty night bird

There’s a belief by the children of man
Which states, all will be well

Search on, man
Calm savior
Veteran of war’s incalculable greed
Search on, man
Calm savior
Godspeed and forgive you
Morning star fragrant meadow personal girl

Oh…
Oh…hey
Oh… hey…oh…hey…
Oh…

Waiting for us… they’re waiting for us… they’re waiting for us
Waiting for us
They’re coming…coming for us

Here, out in the desert somewhere in New Mexico
The feds have their own covert, non-existent missile-testing facilities
You know, but it goes on for several hundreds of miles
With those scary signs that read, Do not trespass or we shoot
Deploying what they call weather balloons
When in actuality it is hydrogen bomb testing, hydrogen bomb…

Before we end our day, oh Lord
We make this prayer to You
(Before we end our day, oh Lord
We make this prayer to You)

These tests happen so far underground the fallout feeds into our water supply

That you continue in Your love
To guard Your people here
(That you continue in Your love
To guard Your people here)

Be… be patient
It will be ready for consumption in less than 30 years

Give us this night untroubled rest
And build our strength in You
(Give us this night untroubled rest
And build our strength in You)

Your splendor driving far away
All darkness of the fall
(Your splendor driving far away
All darkness of the fog)

Our hearts desire to love You, Lord
Watch over while we sleep
(Our hearts desire to love You, Lord
Watch over while we sleep)

That when the new day dawns on high
We may your praises sing
(That when the new day dawns on high
We may your praises sing)

A…men, a…men, a…men, a…men
