Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2



The Experience:
This song is not a rebel song. This song is Sunday, Bloody Sunday. Not a rebel song, but an angry song, a gut-wrenching song, a song that mourns the violence and evil that plagues our world. And how long, how long, must we sing this song? Will hatred and violence ever end? Bono seems to believe that it can... And hints at how when he changes the meaning of Bloody Sunday: The real battle just begun, to claim the victory Jesus won on Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Music Video
I chose this epic video posted by awesomnessk which gives an overview of U2 performing Sunday Bloody Sunday at different stages throughout their career to the rhythm of the song.


My Take
It's too true that those of us in rich countries have become immune, and convince ourselves that fact is fiction and TV  is reality. The world won't change if we don't change it.


Ask Yourself
What are you doing to make the world a better place? Why not start today?

LYRICS:

I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away

How long
How long, must we sing this song
How long
How long
'Cause tonight
We can be as one
Tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long
How long, must we sing this song
How long
How long
'Cause tonight
We can be as one
Tonight

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
