Don't believe the devil
I don't believe his book
But the truth is not the same
Without the lies he made up

Don't believe in excess
Success is to give
Don't believe in riches
But you should see where I live
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in forced entry
Don't believe in rape
But every time she passes by
Wild thoughts escape
I don't believe in death row
Skid row or the gangs
Don't believe in the Uzi
It just went off in my hand
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in cocaine
Got a speed-ball in my head
I could cut and crack you open
Do you hear what I said
Don't believe them when they tell me
There ain't no cure
The rich stay healthy
The sick stay poor
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in Goldman
His type like a curse
Instant karma's going to get him
If I don't get him first
Don't believe in rock 'n' roll
Can really change the world
As it spins in revolution
It spirals and turns
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in the 60's
The golden age of pop
You glorify the past
When the future dries up
Heard a singer on the radio late last night
He says he's gonna kick the darkness
'til it bleeds daylight
I...I believe in love

I feel like I'm falling
Like I'm spinning on a wheel
It always stops beside of me
With a presence I can feel
I...I believe in love

This song makes more sense when you are familiar with John Lennon's song God. U2's God Part II is a reprise/response to Lennon's denial of everything except Yoko.... I like Lennon's God, but I love U2's God Part II.
I prefer this one
First comment in 15 years? I completely forgot about this one. It's most excellent and I haven't heard it since it came out!!!
It's funny. I'm a huge U2 fan, but I know countless other fans who loathe and despise this track. I've come to accept that I'm probably one of about 2 dozen people in the world who actually think this track is great.
Never been a huge U2 fan, for whatever reason. Most of their stuff just doesn't turn my crank. But this track rocks.

Fantastic song from a very underrated album.
Yet another piece of garbage from the most overrated band ever.
Just missed it! Aaargh! :jump:
I'm stunned. I never thought I'd like another U2 song.
Fantastic song from a very underrated album.
LOVE RATTLE AND HUM!!! one the best albums ever! Love this song, although Lennon's "God" is truly Godlike.
