X is for Xanax and Wine

My favorite U2 song that begins with X is Xanax and Wine. Actually it is the only U2 song that begins with X, so this was an easy choice. Xanax and Wine is an extra track from How to Distmantle An Atomic Bomb.

My cell is ringing, no ID
I want to know who’s calling
My garden’s overgrown
I go out on my belly’s crawling
I got CCTV, pornography, CNBC
I got the nightly news to get to know the enemy
All I want is a picture of you
All I want is to get right next to you
All I want is your picture in a locket
Your face in my pocket
Take a pill to stop it
Take me, save me from myself
I know that you’ve been good to me
Now I need you not to be
Wake me, I fear I can’t be asleep
I’m buying things I cannot afford
I’m on a high diving board
Two drugs keeping me dry
Xanex and wine
I’m going nowhere
Where I am, it is a lot of fun
There in the desert
To dismantle an atomic bomb
I watch you shadow box
Check the stocks, I’m in detox
Want a lot of what you got
What you got can make this stop
All I want is a picture of you
All I want is to get right next to you
All I want is your picture in a locket
Your face in my pocket
Take a pill to stop it
Take me, save me from myself
I know that you’ve been good to me
Now I need you not to be
Wake me, I fear I can’t be asleep
Try not to look so bored
You’re buying things you cannot afford
I got your drive, I know you want my
Xanex and wine
Don’t you worry ’bout your mind
Seems I worry all the time
Don’t you worry, you’ll be fine
You should worry ’bout the day
That the pain, it goes away
You know, I miss mine sometimes
There is no fiction
That will truly fit this situation
I’m documenting every detail
Every conversation
Not used to talking to somebody in the body
Somebody in a body
It’s somebody in a body
In a body there’s somebody
Somebody in a body
Somebody, somebody, somebody
It’s somebody in a body
Somebody in a body
Somebody in a body there’s somebody
