"I would love to see a united Ireland, but I never could support a man who put a gun to somebody's head to see that dream come true."
- Bono, July 1987
Bono wrote the song 'Out of Control' on his 18th birthday. It is about a feeling of having no control. Nothing changes now that your eighteen and never does. Feeling the pain from his mothers death and having no control over that or anything else.
