"It's this guy beating up his girlfriend about her searching for answers and just telling her to look around. It's like science fiction gospel. Edge is calling it country hip-hop."
- Bono on If God Will Send His Angels (Q Magazine, March 1997)
Much of the song 'Drowning Man' is written from the point of view of David railing at God, but occasionally, it switches, and God replies. yet, the song is addressed to Adam Clayton.
