"Edge has just got a list of things there, one following the other. 'Don't cry, don't eat, don't drink, don't sleep.' It's kind of arcade music but at base it's a dark energy we're tapping into, like a lot of the stuff on Achtung Baby. And I use my Fat Lady voice that I used on The Fly. There's a big fat mamma in all of us."
- Bono on Numb, 1993

The song 'Numb' is about how The Edge felt when he split up with his wife. He felt like he couldn't do anything, he was useless. He felt numb.
