Lit & Lyric: War

Angela Pancella (

Sunday, Bloody Sunday:

Trenches dug within our hearts, And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart...

Matthew 10:35: "For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

Wipe the tears from your eyes...

Revelation 21:4: "He will wipe every tear from their eyes..."


Like a thief in the night...

1 Thessalonians 5:2: "for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night."

Like a Song:

A new heart is what I need/ Oh God, make it bleed...

Ezekiel 36:26: "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh."

Drowning Man:

Rise up, rise up/ With wings like eagles/ You'll run, you'll run/ You'll run and not grow weary...

Isaiah 40:31: "...but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."


If I wanna live I gotta die to myself someday...

Luke 9:24-25: "For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself?"


Psalm 40, though Bono has mentioned in his intro to the book of Psalms that "How long (to sing this song)" was copped from Psalm 6.
