"Hawkmoon's my favorite, the last few seconds of that scare the shit out of me. And God Part II, the Edge's guitar."
- Bono on Rattle & Hum
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.
