I love the way Bono takes the pi*h out of himself with the "Wars between the Nations" line.

and this is quentisentially Bono and why he has been able to shall we say "reinvent himself".

In one little clip we see the whole history of U2 and have flash before our eyes, their past, present and now we can see their future...

I would go as far as to say this clip is the most remarkable experience in 30 years of being a U2 fan.

Because I know, from this clip, their best is still to come.

"Let me hear the sound..."

In fact, the clip is two different parts of the song...

the verse is the first 15 seconds...then there is a cut away.....and then it is the chorus..

so there is a part missing in between.

Thats not the chorus people!
I know the quality is not great but I love what they've done to the vocals - production wise.

Could Bono be using Boots as a metaphor between love and war?

"War between the nations"

Get on your Boots for war and for sex.

That Bono he is so ingenious.

I am eating scrambled eggs for breakfast t the moment before I go down to the beach to surf and then off to the tennis to see Federer at Kooyong but it occured to me...

that Bono writes songs like most people scramble eggs.

with two metaphors running through the same theme.

Could this be another case?

I reckon the line is:-

"I want you enough to cause wars between the nations".

If you can wait til Monday, then skip this "spoiler." It's not impressive at all.
