@trainmaster Pandora's similar tracks list is like that on a bunch of U2 songs; it's ridiculous.
Blessings aren't just for the ones who kneel, luckily. Luckily, we don't believe in luck. Grace abounds!

-Bono, singing this live in 2009
The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for others steal
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel... luckily

LAST VERSE
@orsatti645 Day-Glow eyes not dago. Thats pretty funny though.
Catchy tune
What's all this about dago eyes? S**t's racialist.
good to scream at the top of your lungs!!!!!!! But It's cool not just for the ones who scream..... luckily.

I read once that this is a love song to New York and New Yorkers. Following 9/11, U2 performed in NYC and paid a moving tribute to those who died in the tragedy. At the end of the tribute, the lights came up on the crowd and Bono saw they all had tears in their eyes and was inspired to write this song.
One of my fav songs off of this album! I heard it was about New York
Incredible song... a masterpiece, really
My favorite U2 song...
