"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 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.
