On The Road lyrics

Bono would recite a quote from Kerouac's novel. He slightly altered the quote, and the original text is:

I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centrelight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"

Excerpt from the book by Jack Kerouac.
