I want to trip inside your head
Spend the day there
To hear the things you haven't said
And see what you might see

I want to hear you when you call
Do you feel anything at all?
I want to see your thoughts take shape
And walk right out

Freedom has a scent
Like the top of a new born baby's head

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've seen enough, I'm not giving up
On a miracle drug

Of science and the human heart
There is no limit
There is no failure here sweetheart
Just when you quit

I am you and you are mine
Love makes nonsense of space
And time, will disappear
Love and logic keep us clear
Reason is on our side, love

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, a miracle drug, a miracle drug

God I need your help tonight

Beneath the noise
Below the din
I hear your voice
It's whispering
In science and in medicine
"I was a stranger
You took me in"

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, miracle drug

Miracle, miracle drug

    General Comment:Bono: "We all went to the same school and just as we were leaving, a fellow called Christopher Nolan arrived. He had been deprived of oxygen for two hours when he was born, so he was paraplegic. But his mother believed he could understand what was going on and used to teach him at home. Eventually, they discovered a drug that allowed him to one muscle in his neck. So they attached this unicorn device to his forehead and he learned to type. And out of him came all these poems that he'd been storing up in his head. Then he put out a collection called Dam-Burst of Dreams, which won a load of awards and he went off to university and became a genius. All because of a mother's love and a medical breakthrough." --from the Blender article

    General Comment:babylonian007,
    I think you misinterpreted my statement about 'turning pop culture upside down'. I don't believe that particular line or the song 'Miracle Drug' will have any effect on pop culture. None. What I meant was that pop culture portrays romantic love (often in purely superficial and sexual terms) as the be-all, end-all. If you're not in love, or in bed, with someone, pop culture says that you're a boring outcast. Not all of pop culture, mind you, but a significant portion of it suggests this. The line in Miracle Drug that I referred to simply expresses a different feeling than that. I know several people who have chosen not to get married because they are passionate about helping others. I won't go into the specifics, but I think of them and their decisions when I hear 'I've had enough of romantic love/ I'd give it up for a miracle drug'.
    Regarding your website, it's a bit too cynical for my tastes. It seems that you spend alot time focusing on the things that bother you. Why spend so much effort on things you perceive to be crap? Just ignore it. Spend time focusing on things you like. If you like Pantera, spend your time listening to Pantera. Make a Pantera website (if you haven't done so). Why put a bunch of effort into writing about a band you don't like? Btw, I hate NASCAR too, and I always use vi when I'm on the 'other' operating sytem!

    General Comment:when he says

    The songs are in your eyes
    I see them when you smile
    I’ve had enough of romantic love
    I’d give it up, yeah, I’d give it up
    For a miracle, a miracle drug, a miracle drug

    to me that means that he would give up normal romantic meanderings to truly know her, to get inside her head. (the opening lyrics "i wanna trip inside your head")

    General Comment:i would like to add that this is probably my favorite song on the album

    anyway, Bono says here blender.com/guide/… that a guy who went to school with them was a paraplegic, and they attached a thing to his head that allowed him to type, and he wrote a collection of poems.

    well, i guess its sort of like "whatever it means to you", which doesnt necessarily have to be the same thing it means to Bono. everyone can take away something different from it. its my habit to put a romantic interpretation on everything. ;)

    General Comment:Aqusnor, I've never met a U2 fan online who hasn't pre-ordered multiple versions of each album. Buy a clue, before casting insults . . .

    General Comment:^ Wrong, but it's one of the better ones off the album. Bono's vocals over the backdrop of Edge's guitar (and Adam's bass, etc) during the chorus is beautiful. Can't wait to hear this song live.
