I've been thinking about this too and I think this 'time off' will influence a new chapter in Bono's life-which will in some way influence his art.

In all honesty, I think U2 as a whole has been lacking any strife in their lives for the past 15 years and their writing shows that. As an artist myself, I know that my best stuff (unfortunately) comes from true pain or joy. Not 'researched' pain or joy. Seems like the most difficult time for the band was during Achtung and the end result shows - a brilliant piece of art.

I'm hoping that the pain (unfortunate as it is), the cancellation of an entire army moving across the globe, and the rehab time will give Bono some new experiences and feelings to write about. Sucks that he has to go through it but as an artist, new experiences are always a place for new ideas.

You wish Bono pain so he can write stuff that you like? Wow, that's really great.

I'm a writer myself and if I'm in pain I have a lot of stuff on my mind but not writing. It's a stupid myth to say good art can only come out of pain and sorrow. Bono's writing for NLOTH was excellent. I want to see more of that in the future and I'm sure Bono could do without a back injury and still write good songs.

Moment of surrender

Stay in bed (faraway so close!)

Munich - Being Broken
Let me on the gurney
Let me on the gurney
Let me on the gurney, gurney
Let me on the gurney, gurney
Let me on the gurney

Let me on the gurney
Let me on the gurney
Let me on the gurney, gurney
Let me on the gurney, gurney
Let me on the gurney

AHHHHHHH!

Six o'clock
On the weight machine
Burning muscles, burning back
South of France and ambulance helicopter
Pain, cut glass
German sun at last

AHHHHHHH!

Lights flash past
Like memories
A speeding movement, a speeding nerve
I'm being broken, a painful start
The tendons snap, blood-curdling wail
Back first, then leg
Then helicopter ambulance sets sail

I can't figure it out but I bet someone could do something cool with Kite lyrics.
