"We're still friends, but it's a lot more difficult now. It's not the four guys fighting the whole world. That doesn't exist any more. The opportunity to just sit around the pub and have a pint and talk about nothing doesn't happen as often as it should."
- Larry Mullen jr, 2009
"When I looked around, the world couldn't be found, just me by the sea" is a verse left out of the album recording of The Ocean
