"Songs are the language of the spirit, melody is the language of the spirit. I think melody is how you speak to God, it's a deep language. Words are an attempt to point that melody in the direction that it's headed. But it can't explain everything, because really great songs touch places that you can't explain."
- Bono, 2000
