"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

The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
