Our son James is in 4th grade and went to his first concert recently. He saw U2 Innocence + Experience show.

The song was inspired by An Assassin's Diary, published in 1973. Gabriel talked about the book in an authorized biography of him published in 1988: An Assassin's Diary was a really nasty book, but you do get a sense of the person who is writing it.
