In the epic of Gilgamesh (basically the oldest story known to mankind) the Gods were said to reside in the Cedars of Lebanon. And they are becoming extremely rare, so I would guess the song might be some combination of Biblical, Environmental and Political.

It sure beats "Lead Me In The Way I Should Go" or one of those other proposed schmaltzy titles.

Agreed. The titles "If I Could Live My Life Again," "Love Is All We Have Left," "Lead Me In The Way I Should Go," "You Can't Give Away Your Heart" sound very cheesy 2005 obsessed-with-the-G8-Summit-and-not-with-making-quality-music Bono. No creativity in the titles at all. At least "Cedars of Lebanon" and "No Line on the Horizon" have some imagery in there, whether the songs themselves turn out to be shite or not.

Agreed 100%. Those aforementioned titles would be like HTDAAB part 2, pretty much! Actually even worse!

Haven't we possibly heard bits of this song already?
There's actually a place called Tripoli in Lebanon as well:

U2 has referenced the Cedars of Lebanon before...

In the Beautiful Day video, the airplane flying over the band is a MEA (Middle East Airlines) plane with the cedar logo on the tail.

Do you know what that would do to the sexual references thread in It's A Musical Journey?
