"Glasnost" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
When did life get so, get so complicated
When did time start, start accelerating
Make life slower
Stop life growing

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

And in defeat, cling to these words so clear
Humiliations not easily understood
Onto the future
Such messages are burned

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

    General CommentSuch a lush U2 sound to this one, like many off this album. Don't mean that in a bad way necessarily.

    General Comment'Glasnost' is Russian for openness. It's supposed to be the idea of a whole new openness to their music as demonstrated on Lifeblood.
