[T]he hardest place in the world for what we try and pull off as U2 . . . is the U.K., where the arts and politics are very separate. -- Bono

"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

I was born a child of grace
Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face
It left me no illusions
I saw you in the curve of the moon
In the shadows 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

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

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am, I am

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
