Originally posted by WojBhoy:Zooropa's one of my favourite songs from the album and indeed, their entire discography - I could, however, say that about many songs I agree with the comparison to Fez/Being Born; Zooropa was essentially two songs being spliced together. There's a particular passage in the song that I think could well be my favourite lyrics of all time;
'And I have no compass
And I have no map
And I have no reasons, no reasons to get back'
Mr. Hewson, take a bow. In an album full of some of Bono's greatest lyrical work, that section right there would get my choice as the best - so simple, yet so emotive.
That's what I think, anyway

I get what you mean, but I feel The Fly was much more dark in the attitude and ideas the character conveyed, whereas Zooropa, particularly the song itself, felt much more positive, albeit coming from an uncertain frame of mind.
