Bullet the Blue Sky - Bono (Hewson)

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

just a footnote to the above. two things. one, a member of my family shot the music video "under a blood red sky" , the camera work was ours. Second, and this is for anyone of my writer friends or those that want to be a writer.

And that is this:
Actually its a realization I made today . Ever since I worked on tech support documentation for bellsouth telecom (hurricane response database) I have seen documents as streams. the layout and construction of it , -
don't write in text. write in html or sgml. look at your text flow as something you can format while you write.
