So how do you spell what happens after that - Edge's fantastic guitar riff and Larry's rocking drums?  ;)

Boy sees his father crushed under the weight
Of a cross in a passion where the passion is hate
Blue mink Ford, Iím gonna detonate and you're dead
Blood in the house
Blood on the street

The foolish pride that gets you out the door/sends you back for more

Iris says that I will be
The death of her
It was not me...

I don't know if it's a favorite of mine, but certainly one of the most interesting:

My bodyís not a canvas
My bodyís now a toilet wall

"Blossoms falling from a tree
They cover you and cover me
Symbols crashing, Bibles smashing
Paint the world you need to see
And sometimes fear's the only place
That we can call our home
Cedarwood Road"

I love this set of lines for the evocative poetry -- for how they make a Cedarwood Road of my own imagination come alive for me. I also love both the wonder and the pain juxtaposed together in these lines.

These three lyrics take the cake:

"Iris wakes to my nightmares
Don't fear the world
It isn't there."

"Iris says that I will be the death of her
It was
Not me"

and...

"Are we ready to be swept off our feet?
And stop chasing every breaking wave."

Stunning and gut wrenching.

 I always hear "No fear of the world," which I like a bit better.

This always give me shivers/goosebumps like the type I imagine Matt McGee gets from "The Troubles."

"Iris standing in the hall, she tells me I can do it all"
"Iris playing on the strand..."

"I can't tell what it is, but I took a look and now I'm sorry I did"
" Boy sees his father crushed under the weight  of a cross in a passion where the passion is hate"

"Soldier soldier we signed our lives away; Complete surrender the only weapon we know"

"Little and little the robbed and stole, until somebody else was in control"
"You're not my troubles anymore"

We know that we fear to win
And so we end before we begin

Cheers,
