"I'm the group lyricist and I have this incredible responsibility of putting into words what the musicians are expressing. I often feel that I achieve my purpose less when I am too specific, too precise, because there aren't any appropriate words for what I want to say."
- Bono, 1993

Bono wrote the song 'Out of Control' on his 18th birthday. It is about a feeling of having no control. Nothing changes now that your eighteen and never does. Feeling the pain from his mothers death and having no control over that or anything else.
