U2 God Part II Lyrics

Last updated: 12/06/2010 10:00:00 AM

For John Lennon

Don't believe the devil
I don't believe his bookBut the truth is not the same
Without the lies he made up

Don't believe in excess
Success is to give
Don't believe in riches
But you should see where I live
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in forced entry
Don't believe in rape
But every time she passes by
Wild thoughts escape
I don't believe in death row
Skid row or the gangs
Don't believe in the Uzi
It just went off in my hand
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in cocaine
Got a speed-ball in my head
I could cut and crack you open
Do you hear what I said
Don't believe them when they tell me
There ain't no cure
The rich stay healthy
While the sick stay poor
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in Goldman
His type like a curse
Instant karma's going to get him
If I don't get him first
Don't believe that rock 'n' roll
Can really change the world
As it spins in revolution
It spirals and turns
I...I believe in love

Don't believe in the 60's
The golden age of pop
It glorifies the past
While the future dries up
Heard a singer on the radio late last night
He says he's gonna kick the darkness
'til it bleeds daylight
I...I believe in love

I feel like I'm falling
Like I'm spinning on a wheel
It always stops beside a name
a presence I can feel
I...I believe in love

complete shit - U2 Suck | Reviewer: god | 4/8/10

This song is utter tripe - Bono is a dick head - he has a nerve referencing John Lennon's primal scream, while he lives and has a company off shore so he doesn't have to pay taxes - what a mf hypocrite - he doesn't believe in love - he believes in his wealth

Incredible Song! Very Incredible! | Reviewer: Stone | 3/27/08

"God Part II" has to be one of the very best songs that Larry Norman ever wrote! Kudos to Bono for knowing a great song when he hears one... and kudos to Larry Norman for licensing the song for his friend, Bono, to record and perform. Larry Norman wrote this song to John Lennon in response to a Lennon song. While "only visiting this planet", Larry Norman wrote hundreds of amazing songs. "God Part II" was written in classic Larry Norman style, and holds its weight still today in both relevancy and musical style. Pure genius!

God Part II, baby! | Reviewer: Malena | 7/20/06

God, this song is so cool! I really think it is! It's written to John Lennon, in case you didn't know(:
