"As a lyricist it is sometimes difficult for me. Sometimes the words just come straight from the music but sometimes they don't and I've got to try and listen in to the music, to what it's saying and then try to put words on it."
- Bono, 1990

In late 2004, "Mercy", an unreleased track taken from the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb sessions, surfaced on the Internet through a fan who had been given a copy of the album containing the extra track. The track is of less than standard audio quality, but managed to become a favorite on fan websites.
