Awesome song. I love the lyrics, especially the "And I have no compass/And I have no map/And I have no reasons/No reasons to get back." Its like Bono is telling us all that we really need to ditch our old ideas about what the band is about, and embrace this new U2.

One of the best U2 songs ever. It's amazing what they did on that song.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Yes, this is a great song. I wrote a 9 page paper on this album and got an A on it. My professor loved it.

I LOVE that song! I once put it on after not hearing it for around a YEAR and the guitar riff at the beginning and the bass and 'atmospheric sounds' just melt together and I thought to myself "This is the greatest tune ever written!" It's THAT good. My number one U2 track!

Great post!!! I can remember when I bought this CD right after it came out - unbelievable - nothing like playing loud and enjoying the unique sounds and just listening to the words.

Would love to hear them play it live, but I bet it would be difficult to play - since they have only played it live a few times.

the transition from "we've got that ring of confidence"....to "and i have no compass.." is amazing
and the message that "skip the subway, let's go to the overground" sends is beautiful

This song had a lot of potential that's for sure.
