"The term stadium rock is a term of abuse, but it's a bogus term . . . It just happens that we have the magic wand to turn these large open spaces into something else." — Bono

"'Love Is Blindness' ends the album in some style. There was some reference to the little death, which can be taken to mean a faint during orgasm but also works as an image of terrorism. I was mixing up the personal and the political... There's nothing more deadly than an idea-or a person-that's almost right. You know it took the 20th century a hundred years to get over communism. There's another dangerous idea that almost made sense. The song has images of terrorism, bomb-building, clockworks and cold steel, parked car." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night around me
Love is blindness

In the ships we sail, the stormy seas
It's the waves that crash this over me
All my life
Love is blindness

In a parked car in a crowded street
With a moment like, be complete
Squeeze the handle
Love is blindness

Love is clockworks and cold steel
Fingers too numb to feel
Oh, my heart
It's blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night around me
Love is blindness

Love is drowning in a deep well
All the secrets and no one to tell
Never-ending pretending
Love is blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night around me
Love is blindness

Love is clockworks and a telephone line
Where a whisper is shouted
Is she coming back
Oh, my heart
Love is blindness
