U2 Crumbs From Your Table Lyrics

Last updated: 02/08/2011 10:00:00 AM


From the brightest star
Comes the blackest hole
You had so much to offer
Why did you offer your soul?
I was there for you baby
When you needed my help
Would you deny for others
What you demand for yourself?

Cool down mama, cool off
Cool down mama, cool off

You speak of signs and wonders
I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table

You were pretty as a picture
It was all there to see
Then your face caught up with your psychology
With a mouth full of teeth
You ate all your friends
And you broke every heart thinking every heart mends

You speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table

Where you live should not decide
Whether you live or whether you die
Three to a bed
Sister Ann, she said
Dignity passes by

And you speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table

crumbs from your table | Reviewer: virginia | 2/8/11

nothing to see the first comment, the letter does not speak for all Christians, Catholics always imagining things .... starts talking about the political and religious groups of high economic power, the latter resigned his religious principles, love and unity, when they refused to give money to organizations to alleviate hunger AIDS in Africa, Bono always says that I dedicate to God, and now those who claim to be his messengers and proclamations of love and peace, denied to the poorest to help they have a decent life.
Bono ends by describing a hospice in Uganda and had to sleep three bed. Sister Anne, works at the hospice. His office is a sewer ... It's clear he means when he says "Dignity passes by



Meaning From My Point Of View | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/12/09

I think this song is about dogma...particularly Christian dogma and the hypocrisy of some Christians (I am Catholic btw).It's about how the fundamental Christian Ideal and moral code is never truly displayed by those who call themselves Christians. We know all the scriptures but never put the teaching of Jesus Christ into our daily lives.



Straight Forward | Reviewer: Knarf | 11/11/09

I think the meaning for this is pretty straightforward. He is referring to meeting people at their point of need. Not presenting to them your beliefs when what they seem to need most is food, money etc. I don't know if I agree with the concept, but that's what I think it means.
