U2 - No Line On The Horizon: Wikipedia Album Entry
No Line on the Horizon is the twelfth studio album by Irish rock band U2, released on 27 February 2009 in Ireland, 2 March in the rest of Europe, and a day later in North America. The album is U2's first since 2004's How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, the longest gap between studio albums in the band's career. It was accidentally leaked onto the internet before release. On the first day of the official release it reached platinum status.
The unreleased album found its way onto BitTorrent and was downloaded hundreds of thousands of times. As a result, it was rumored that the RIAA asked social music service Last.fm for data about its users' listening habits to find people with unreleased tracks on their computers. Last.fm denied such situation occurred.

I tied myself with wire
To let the horses roam free
Playing with the fire
Until the fire played with me
Yesterday I spent asleep
Woke up in my clothes in a dirty heap
Spent the night trying to make a deadline
Squeezing complicated lives into a simple headline
The future needs a big kiss
Winds blows with a twist
Never seen a moon like this
Can you see it too?
Love love love love loveâ¦
Love love love love loveâ¦
I got to stand up and take a step
Oh, oh, magnificent
I was born, I was born
16th of June 9:05, 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 and reborn
On the autoroute
Burning rubber, burning chrome
Bay of Cadiz and ferry home
Where I came from there were no hills at all
The land was flat, the highways straight and wide
My brother and I would drive for hours
Like years instead of days
I know a girl who's like a sea
I watch her changing every day for me, oh yeah
One day she's still, the next she swells
You can hear the universe in her sea shells, oh yeah
