"Life is short but it's the longest thing you'll ever do,
the worst, the curse, was when that dream came true ;
God is a mirror in which each man sees himself,
Hell is a place where you don't need any help,
When I first met you your face was like snow
Wherever I went, you, you wanted to go ;
Your face, your grace, your lipstick case
A-17 you put it down on the ground,
Don't put your faith in a clown"
"If you looked into the face of a mother whose daughter or son has died in their arms for no good reason, they don't know of care who's President of America. It's something that once you're a witness to, you can't get it out of your head."
- Bono, 2009

U2 named their How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb album like that because Bono envisioned the bomb as his father and the songs as efforts by him to deal with his father's death.
