Sixteen of June, nine-oh-five, door bell rings Man at the door says if I want to stay alive a bit longer There's three things I need you to know Three
Coming from a long line of traveling sales people on my mother's side I wasn't gonna buy just anyone's cockatoo So why would I invite a complete stranger into my home Would you
These days are better than that These days are better than that
Every day I die again, and again I'm reborn Every day I have to find the courage To walk out into the street With arms out Got a love you can't defeat Neither down nor out There's nothing you have that I need I can breathe Breathe now
Sixteen of June, Chinese stocks are going up And I'm coming down with some new Asian virus Ju Ju man, Ju Ju man Doc says you're fine, or dying Please Nine-oh-nine, St. John Divine on the line, my pulse is fine But I'm running down the road like loose electricity While the band in my head plays a striptease
The roar that lies on the other side of silence The forest fire that is fear so deny it
Walk out into the street Sing your heart out The people we meet Will not be drowned out There's nothing you have that I need I can breathe Breathe now
We are people borne of sound The songs are in our eyes Gonna wear them like a crown
Walk out, into the sunburst street Sing your heart out, sing my heart out I've found grace inside a sound I found grace, it's all that I found And I can breathe Breathe now

Jimmy from Lancaster, Cai remember when i saw them at the rosebowl, and they opened with this song. when i saw Larry on the set with the spot light on him, the suddenly the stage explodes with light and the whole band's on stage rockin out, i seriously almost cried lol that was the best night of my life
Zan-d Mack from Springfield, Mo"Get On Your Boots" rocks my face off!! But I can really hear Larry Mullen's individualistic drumming style in this song.
Rob from Sydney, AustraliaI just LOVE this song! Another classic off this awesome album. This album is just full of exceptional songs. Perhaps the weakest song is "Boots"...which just happened to be the lead single. Shame, because people I think have incorrectly judged this gem of an album because of it.
