Really reminds me of "Mothers" ending The Joshua Tree in terms of feel and sound. I especally love how revealing yet brave the lyrics at the end are:
"God know it's not easy
Taking on the shape of someone else's pain
God now you can see me
I'm naked and I'm not afraid
My body's scared and I'm not ashamed"
Plus Bono's vocal that cracks a bit gives this power and resonance. It's surly not among U2's best album closers, but it's powerful enough to end this album in a "Mothers", "Love Is Blindness" like feel.
"It's a trap when you agree to being one person because when you step out of character with that, you look like a hypocrite."
- Bono, on his Macphisto persona

A local violinist, Steve Wickham, approached The Edge one morning at a bus stop and asked if U2 had any need for a violin on their next album (the War album). In the studio for only half a day, Wickham's electric violin became the final instrumental contribution to Sunday Bloody Sunday.
