Can anyone decipher what the "Zoo Baby" voice is saying in this song?

Not sure. But I do know that this is the first time Bono has used a vocoder since spring 92 arena shows during the intro to ZooStation. He might have borrowed it from Kanye or Cher, probably didn't return it.

I think it is saying "open your eyes".  This auto-tune voice music thingy kind of bugs me.  I wish it was his simple raw voice....or even have Edge sing this part.

I keep hearing "And there's a light..."

Best use of autotune I've hear in while. Doesn't take away from the performance or make the singer sound better than they are. Just a cool effect.

The lyrics page on this site says the line is "Don’t close your eyes".  Now that I've read that, I can hear it better.
