Don't believe the devil I don't believe his book But 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 You glorify the past When 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
Love Love Love Love
I feel like I'm falling Like I'm spinning on a wheel It always stops beside of me With a presence I can feel I, I believe in love Stop

Leo from Westminster 1, MdAgain, what Bono is writing about here in God Part 2 is the shameful obsession we have with celebrity/Pop Culture/Surreal Reality and the entrapment of nostalgia, something that U2 disowns-"You glorify the past and the Future Dries up!...I don't believe in Goldman/His type like a curse/Instant Karma's gonna get him/If I don't get him first...I Believe in Love!" U2 sure didn't like what Albert Goldman did to John Lennon's memory or Rock's very Soul and Existence by writing Tell-all books. All we have to do is get beyond Hollywood and Celebrity and get on with our American Lives-that's why U2's inspired Heartland Rock is timeless. Bono is a caring and committed frontman/artist who truly Loves America. America is very Lucky and fortunate to have and love U2 because U2 Rock Hard!
T from London, United KingdomActually, God Part II hasn't been played live since 1990, so the Goldman to Osama thing is wrong.
Carolyn from Arlington, Txoutstanding song--the coolest they've done and that's saying alot....
Leon from Waterbury, CtThough rarely ever played live, they include it in their set every once and a great, great while. After 9/11, when the song was sometimes played during concerts, Bono changed "Goldman" to "Osama".
Joshua from Twin Cities, MnThe line quoted by Alejandro is actually just one of several self-contradictory lyrics in the song. My personal favorite: "I don't believe in the Uzi - it just went off in my hand..."
Alejandro from Mexico D.f., Mexicocontaines the lyric "I dont believe in riches... but you should see where I live"
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
