“The Fly” by U2

“It’s no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest.”

(Oh, baby child)

It’s no secret that our world is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
You know I don’t see you when she walks in the room

It’s no secret that a friend is someone who lets you help
It’s no secret that a liar won’t believe anyone else
They say a secret is something you tell one other person
So I’m telling you…child

(Love…we shine like a burning star)
(We’re falling from the sky…tonight)

A man will beg
A man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly on a wall
It’s no secret at all

It’s no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
It’s no secret ambition bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief
All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief
Oh love…

(Love…we shine like a burning star)
(We’re falling from the sky…tonight)

A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It’s no secret at all

(Achtung Baby)

(Love…we shine like a burning star)
(We’re falling from the sky…tonight)

A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It’s no secret at all

It’s no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploded ’cause of one man’s lie
Look, I gotta go, yeah I’m running outta change
There’s a lot of things, if I could I’d rearrange

I'm routinely overestimated.
