But I've got to say this, and this is not a political screed or statement, so please let this be, Gorts...I think the verse ending with "and Lincoln's ghost says", along with the chorus,could really incite some big-time flak headed in Bono's and the band's direction. Putting Kendrick Lamar's rap at the end was a smart move to try to deflect that possibility. We'll see if it works. You read it here first, folks. This is the world we live in.A self-important Irish band said:The slaves are looking for someone to lead 'emThe master's looking for someone to need him.The promised land is there for those who need it most and Lincoln's ghost saysGet out of your own way. Oh uhGet out of your own way. Oh UhRut-roh... Good thing nobody listens to U2 outside of Brazil. Those lyrics are pretty hard-hitting.
