New U2 Single, Window in the Skies

In the recent release of U218, U2 includes two new singles: "Windows in the Sky" and "The Saints Come Marching" (w/ Greenday). The spiritual tenor of both songs is unmistakeable.

In Window in the Skies, Bono exults in God's love and mercy at the "grave" (cross) and the "stone gone" (resurrection), through which "all debts are removed," opening a window to God in the sky.

Here is the first stanza and chorus:



Window In The Skies
The shackles are undone
The bullets quit the gun
The heat that’s in the sun
Will keep us when there’s none
The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The grave is now a groove
All debts are removed

Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?
What it’s done to me?

It's so good to know if there's anything new U2, you're gonna let me know about it!

I heard "The Saints Are Coming" last week and thought I heard Bono, but then I heard Green Day, and then I was confused.

Thanks!
