A credible source tells me this is the hook to the new single.

And that might seem like a small detail, but it's not. It puts to question the whole nativity scene.

The "at the moment" is an important part of the lyric, he's trying to express that he was there to witness it, not just a disciple afterwards.
I'm sorry, yes we know about Bono's frequent religious allusions, but this really feels like a stretch. Over-reaching for an over-written song.

I was punching in the numbers at the moment when the ATM machine occurred
Everything I ever lost
Now has been returned
In the most beautiful bank error in my favour I'd ever heard

I'm less hung up on a random lyric than that a supposed tribute to the revelatory influence of the Ramones on Bono or U2 (or both) bears not a hint of anyone in the room even knowing what the Ramones sounded like. Not that U2 ever sounded like them in the slightest. I hear more Joy Division in U2 than I do Ramones.

Well, I'd say it's more a tribute to what the Ramones meant to them and inspired in them than it is a tribute to what the Ramones sounded like.

Yes, I suppose that's true. Thanks for clearing that up.

agreed. i'm with you, i think bono's lyrics (and song titles tbh) have gotten too long. he's trying to squeeze too much into too little space. it makes it really clunky. if the "at the moment" part is really that important, then he should've split it into two lines. regardless, it's such a weird thing for a singalong chorus anyway. not that the chorus for vertigo made any sense, but at least its call-and-response made for a good singalong.
