U2's, "City Of Blinding Lights"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I know more than I know now
Why They're Nonsensical:
It sounds like Bono is saying he is becoming stupider as time goes by.

U2's, "Dirty Day"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I don't know you, and you don't know the half of it.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, Bono, since I haven't met you, of course I don't know you. As for knowing the half of it, maybe I know more than you think I do, since you don't know me, either.

U2's, "Electrical Storm"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But if the sky can cry there must be someway back
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, yes! That's why they invented spaceships!

U2's, "I Will Follow"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Your eyes make a circle.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Whoever wrote this lyric forgot the basic math principle which states that two points determine a line. perhaps his head was spinning?

U2's, "Lemon"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Lemon: See through in the sunlight. She wore lemon, But never in the daylight.
Why They're Nonsensical:
If she never wore it in daylight... how do they know its see through in the sunlight?? Bono- you know I love you... but it`s true.

U2's, "Original Of The Species"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want

So you're giving loads of stuff but not what they actually want...?

U2's, "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Sing, you're the reason why I sing
You're the reason why the opera is in me
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, half of it makes sense. Someone could have been the reason why he sings. But, the second part is crazy! You do not sing opera, Bono, so why did you write that lyric?! That just makes me picture Bono singing opera, which is a really funny thought.

U2's, "Summer Rain"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Tequila and orange,
Jamaica and rum,
Ette Maria,
honey on my tongue.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Any idea as to why these things are lumped into these lines?

U2's, "Sweetest Thing"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Eternal fire, she turned me to straw
Why They're Nonsensical:
Someone turned Bono to straw!? It does not make sense at all. Last time I checked, Bono doesn't look much like a piece of straw. And where does "eternal fire" fall into context here?

U2's, "Vertigo"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm at a place called Vertigo!
Why They're Nonsensical:
Is 'Vertigo' the actual name of a locality? Where exactly is this place called 'Vertigo'?
Submitted by: Mr. Critic
U2's, "Vertigo"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Uno! Dos! Tres! Catorce!
Why They're Nonsensical:
This line (which occurs at the intro of the song) may seem nonsensical because it literally means "One, two, three, fourteen" in spanish, but there is a meaning behind it. This is reportedly a shoutout to the album's producer, who produced U2's first, second, third, and fourteenth albums.
