"Our music is not just inviting people to my own nightmare or daydream. It's much more than that. It is, when it comes down to it, very aggressive rock 'n roll music - very aggressive. I think it's aggressive in it's insight as well as in the music. And I think you feel you're doing something right when you get plus and minus reaction like we've been getting."
- Bono, 1984

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.
