"I'll tell you, you learn a lot about women from dressing up in women's clothes! You learn that when a woman asks you 'Do I look alright?' what she's really saying is 'I have just spent a lot of time making myself uncomfortable. If I go out in this condition will I look foolish, or is it worth it?'"
- Adam Clayton
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.
