I want to run, I want to fly, I want to tear down the walls that hold me in tonite...

this is actually an old post, but I thought that it would fit here...

stole this one from mizz eggz... pick an artist and answer these questions with their lyrics... sur-prise sur-prise... I picked U2...

1. are you male or female?
She's slippy
She's sliding down
She'll be there when you hit the ground
("Mysterious Ways," Achtung Baby)

2. describe yourself.
I'm not the only one staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
I'm not just deaf and dumb, I'm staring at the sun,
I'm not the only one who's happy to go blind
("Staring at the Sun," Pop)

3. how do you feel about yourself?
Sometimes I feel like I don't know
Sometimes I feel like checking out
I want to get it wrong
I can't always be strong
But, love, it won't be long...
("Ultraviolet Light," Achtung Baby)

4. how do you feel about life?
They want you to be Jesus
So you go down on one knee
But they'll want their money back if you're alive at 33
("Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me," Batman Forever SDTRK)

5. what would you rather be doing?
I want to run
I want to fly
I want to tear down the walls that hold me in tonite
I want to reach out and touch the flame
Where the Streets Have No Name
("Where the Streets Have No Name," Joshua Tree)

6. describe where you live.
It's Been a While since we saw that child
Hanging around this neighborhood
You see his mother dealing in a doorway
Father Christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
The high streets never looked so low
("If God Will Send His Angels," Pop)

7. share a few words of wisdom.
Who's to say where the wind will take you
Who's to know what it is will break you
I don't know which way the wind will blow
Who's to know when the time has come around
I don't want to see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye
("Kite," ATYCLB)

8. what's love?
Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the nite around me
Take my heart
Love is blindness
("Love is Blindness," Achtung Baby)

---OR---

A woman needs a man
like a fish needs a bicycle
("Trying to Throw your Arms Around the World," Achtung Baby)
Strokin' It!

"Hidden Characters?"


Most of the long-time U2 diehard fans probably know all the following info. by now concerning the subliminal findings on Passengers:Original Soundtracks 1 but I'll repeat for all that don't know some of the hidden characters featured on the text of the sleeve when you read and take a look at it. You have to unscramble the letters of the character names that appear your cd sleeve copy of this album...

Ben O'Rian=Brian Eno
C.S.J Bofop=Brian Eno(shift each letter by of his name by one character and you get CSJBO FOP!)

Peter Von Heneiken=Paul McGuinness
Jutta Minnit="Just a minute"(inside joke)
Venda Davis=David Evans(Edge's real name)
Tanya Mcload=Adam Clayton
Kiley Sue LaLonne=Anne-Louise Kelly(album production manager)
Pi Hoo-Sun=phoenetic for 'P. Hewson' er' Paul Hewson(Bono's real name)
Tony Corbin=Anton Corbijn(photographer)
Barry Boedders=Des Broadberry(studio technician also credited with the sequencers in the track 'Always Forever Now')

Plus, I could only think of *3 films* on this so-called 'soundtrack album' that are actually real...Miss Sarajevo, Ghost in the Shell, and Beyond the Clouds were all independent motion picture releases. The rest of the films are fictitious. Hence, some of the character names above that appear in some of these...
