I think it's an 'artsy' song you either get it or you don't.
It's not something you 'should' like as a U2 fan, eg. like Streets or WOWY.
So I you haven't 'got' the song after so many listens, I wouldn't bother trying.
COL to me is U2's version of "Man In the Long Black Coat" (Bob Dylan - Oh Mercy, produced by Lanois of course...).
Fantastic atmosphere with very good lyrics. Upfront bass, and space, soooo much space...
It touches the heart. It's 100% perfect.
"You're so high above me, higher than everyone - where are you in the Cedars of Lebanon..."
It's a great song... Will close some shows of this tour, I think...
I love larrys "military like beat" running through the song, really helps set the scene
the lyrics of this song are just amazing, some of bono's best work.
I love the heavy guitar-bass little solo towards the end after the "Where are you in the cedars of Lebanon?" lyric. Very subtle, but it's one of my favorite moments on the album.
Too bad they don't play this, I would love it as a closer, great song!
