"I'm alive. I'm being born. I just arrived, I'm at the door of the place I started out from and I want back inside. We've closed the circle back to our first album. Maybe we should have called this [album] 'Man.'" - Bono, Rolling Stone 2004

Next to it
I was so close to it
I had the universe decoded
And the atom split

I hear you say my, oh my
You know I got no tears to cry
And I got no love left in me
Just salt in my eye

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I'm down, I'm down

The thunder is loud
But the sun is shining
Up above the cloud
It's not the noise
It's the deafening silence
That drowns God out

You say I should go for help
But I can't go go to nobody else
You're like a river flowing underground
I can feel you when you're not around

All because of you
It's all because of you
All because of you
I'm down, I'm down

Oh, child
You're all mine
Slow tickin' heart
You mow down
No more, no more
Yeah

I'm alive
I'm being born
I just arrived
I'm at the door
Of the place I started out from
I want back inside

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
