"I think Drowning Man is my favourite U2 song. It's got so much emotion and poise in it. And it's quite odd sounding as well. I mean the vocals are terrific and I think the backing track is just a lovely swell, and feel of water almost, to it. It's like a waterfall."
- Adam, 1984

The original working title of "Exit" was "Executioner's Song" because U2 was using a lot of literature as their jumping off point for the songs in terms of just taking their work in a slightly different direction.
