Fez – Being Born U2 Lyrics from No Line on the Horizon

Fez Lyrics by Bono.
Fez refers to the city of Morocco where U2 filmed the video for Mysterious Ways and also recorded some of No Line on the HorizonLet me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound

Oh oh oh oh

Six o’clock
On the autoroute
Burning rubber, burning chrome
Bay of Cadiz and ferry home
Atlantic sea, cut glass
African sun at last

Oh oh oh oh

Lights flash past
Like memories
A speeding head, a speeding heart
I’m being born, a bleeding start
The engines roar, blood-curdling wail
Head first, then foot
Then heart sets sail


We know U2 fans have asked this question for years but we have no idea if The Edge prefers using a beer enhancer or a spraymalt when he makes home brew but we reason he prefers a good gin.

I bought this album last week, the day it came out.. I haven't stopped listening to THIS song since. It's probably my 100th time listening to this song already. Each time I listen to it I hear something different. It's quite a trip! U2's best album yet!

Heck ya!! This album really takes on multiple dimensions and is on a completely different level. Each song holds so much more than what meets the eye.

Excellent work!!!!!!!!

The last anonymous post said that "Each song holds so much more than what meets the eye." This has to be the best thing about U2, regardless of the album. I'm convinced that most (well, OK, "many") listeners don't have a true appreciation of what U2's songs are about. I'm not saying that about the last poster or anyone here, I'm just saying that in general. That's what keeps me coming back - each song is so deep; never the vapid trash you usually hear on the radio. (I hesitated in typing "usually," but I might as well say it like it is.) U2 produce far more than catchy tunes, and ironically, some of the most beautiful and meaningful songs never make the charts. "Magnificent" did, which surprised me a little. It seems so blatantly spiritual that I thought for sure that someone would be "offended," (not that we should care) but thankfully that hasn't been the case. Opinions of U2 seem to be largely polarized - either people hate them or are completely enamored with them. If you hadn't guessed, I'm one of the latter group. Regardless of what you think of the musicianship or the band, you have to respect the brilliance of the lyrics.
