“In God’s Country” by U2

“She is liberty, and she comes to rescue me. Hope, faith, her vanity. The greatest gift is gold.”

Desert sky, dream beneath the desert sky
The rivers run but soon run dry
We need new dreams tonight
Desert rose, dreamed I saw a desert rose
Dress torn in ribbons and bows
Like a siren she calls (to me)

Sleep comes like a drug in God’s country

She is liberty, and she comes to rescue me
Hope, faith, her vanity
The greatest gift is gold

Sleep comes like a drug in God’s country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses, in God’s country

Naked flame, she stands with a naked flame
I stand with the sons of Cain
Burned by the fire of love
Burned by the fire of love

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
