"Larry says that he doesn't want to leave the stage just to come back two minutes later, he's a drummer and they are practical, he says it's more efficient to just stay onstage. Edge doesn't care what we do and Adam hasn't even noticed that we've left the stage and me, I'm the singer and I do whatever you want me to, I just want you to love me."
- Bono, Copenhagen, 2001

Get On Your Boots is about Bono taking his family on vacation to France and witnessing warplanes flying overhead at the start of the Iraq War. The chant "let me in the sound" was developed late in the recording sessions and became a theme throughout parts of the album.
