"I've stopped drinking for a few months. I want to get in shape, but it's driving me mad! I want to go out and celebrate and tell everybody how proud I am of the new album. But sober, I'm much more modest."
- Bono after the release of All That You Can't Leave Behind, 2000

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.
