This was one of the "list songs" that Bono had taken to writing during the period, built around a single place such as "The Fly" "It's no secret…".

But in the end the fax got through to Principle Management in Dublin.
Description: I had an extremely tragic loss. The television station was one of the only places where electricity was constant and had satellite television. Not only did Bono produced the film, he also provided the funds needed to support the project. I knew I could never reach them as Bill Carter, the guy running around Sarajevo wondering why no one is paying attention.
