... and nobody's posted the lyrics to "Pride."

How sad.

Pride (In the Name of Love)

Version: Studio (3:49) First Appears On: The Unforgettable Fire Album, 1984
Written By: U2 / Bono Performed By: U2

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come, he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

(The bright line)
(It's all ready mate)
(It's the right time)

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Martin Luther King was killed on April 4th.

On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated.

"Free at last! Free at last!
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Yes, actually a week ago in my US history class we were learning about MLK! We watched an awesome video on the civil rights issue and how MLK was the man that started it all. Pride in the Name of Love was playing during the memorial of MLK in the video, and I cried.




The vid.


Another vid I found. Kind of odd, but stil kinda cool.


Live.

"My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride,
From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.
And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.
Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.
Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of
Pennsylvania.
Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.
But not only that:
Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.
From every mountainside, let freedom ring."

The first video has a typo, claiming the song comes from the Joshua Tree.
