"You preach what you need to hear. You sing your life, and you want it to count, I suppose. I'm hoping people are tired of singers whose mouths are filled with words that were written for them and they don't believe. Their arms and legs move in directions that other people choreograph."
- Bono, 2000, Rolling Stone
The song Heartland is about a trip Bono and Adam made after the Joshua Tree tour through America by car, they passed many placed and states and Heartland contains phrases of Bono's journey of that trip.
