in both anticipation for the cncert and slight depression from this diagnosis, ive been going over my u2 lyrics, and ive noticed two things.
#1) bono sings alot about seeing, and being blind, and having his eyes opened. too bad my eyesight isnt going bad, it might help me out.
#2)theres a part in "wake up dead man" that i had never noticed before.
Listen to your words they'll tell you what to do
Listen over the rhythm that's confusing you
Listen to the reed in the saxophone
Listen over the hum of the radio
Listen over sounds of blades in rotation
Listen through the traffic and circulation
Listen as hope and peace try to rhyme
Listen over marching bands playing out of time
i guess ive never noticed this because im just floored by the other lyics in the song, bt now they just jump at me and yell "OH MY GOSH!!! LOOK!!!!" especially the reed of the saxaphone and the marching band plays out of time becasue im in the band, and i build props for the marching band, both things i cant do anymore with my hearing problem.
i hope my concert experience will still be great!
