"The first verse is written in the first person. And I was always wondering why, because it's about somebody else. And I realize it's guilt, I'm trying to defend myself. The opening verse is 'I am not afraid of anything in the world, there's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard, I'm just trying to find a decent melody, a song that I can sing in my own company'."
- Bono on Stuck In A Moment, 2000
