If U2 were to write a song for you...

If you could ask U2 to write a song for you...what would it be about? Would it be personal, or about the world today, or...what?
what you leave behind you don't miss anyway

it would have a universal and timeless theme- nothing current or political.

Tell me what I should do and whether it will ever be okay. Call it Magic 8 Ball.

Remind me where the bodies are buried
Not all of them,  just the ones i need to revisit.

Tell me where the ghosts are lurking.  All of them - im not scared - they should be!

So you like to sing about God,  tell me lads,  what would God sing about you?  And if he were talking to you,  what would God say about me?

Why do the hills have eyes?  (actually this might have to do with where the bodies are buried,  some of them,  not all)

I would like to know what my cats are thinking sometimes.  It's quite easy to tell when they are hungry,  or when i need to clean out the litter boxes.  But when they just stare at me for a decent amount of time for no reason,  i wonder what they are thinking.  They try to tell me things but it all sounds the same.  I've gotten pretty good at deciphering a lot of their language - but those long stares....

Also,  why do they (cats) see things i cannot see,  ghosts again?  Guardian Angels? 

Or is it the cricket in the corner that wants so badly to chirp,  in the morning he (or she) will be dismantled into a dozen pieces on the living room rug.  Such a terrible way to go.  And yet i have no pity nor sorrow....am i a bad person or just a work in progress. 

Can you fit these themes in a song,  perhaps an EP? 
Flood needs to produce,  along with Howie B. 

LETS GO!!

Egad, I've never thought of such a thing. Uhhh ... wow. Something anthemic, fer sure. Something with a ringing guitar, a great bass line, a kick ass drum beat, and a sing-along chorus. They get to pick the actual topic. (What, I'm supposed to decide everything for them??)
Are you tough enough to be kind?

Oh, yeah! Very cool. I often think they've written a few for me. The obvious, Troubles, Stay, If God Will Send His Angels...and of course, they really DID write Streets for me.

They wrote The Troubles, Every Breaking Wave, and Streets for me.

I guess 13, but I'm sending it back for a rewrite of the chrous.
