To some people the church is their ticket to respectability, a certain bourgeois point of view, a safety net for when they go to bed. My idea of Christianity is no safety net, a scathing attack on bourgeois values, and a risk to respectability.-- Bono, 2002

"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

Alright
Love song to the Who
Alright now

I was born a child of grace
Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face
And it left me no illusions
I saw you in the curve of the moon
In the shadow cast across my room
You heard me in my tune
When I just heard confusion

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am, I am
Oh yeah

I like the sound of my own voice
I didn't give anyone else a choice
An intellectual tortoise
Chasing with your bullet train
Some people get squashed crossing the tracks
Some people got high rises on their backs
I'm not b-b-b-broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me go back again

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am, I am
Oh yessir

Charlie Collins coming in the other side
Across the bridge, dancing on the Brooklyn side
Got a feel, now move it to the higher state

Yeah
Oh yeah
Oh 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
I am
