"I don't see Jesus Christ as being in any part of religion. Religion to me is almost like when God leaves -- and then people devise a set of rules to fill the space."
- Bono, 1982
The title of the song Hawkmoon 269 came from a place U2 passed by during the Conspiracy of Hope tour called Hawkmoon. The number 269 stands for the amount of mixes the song needed before it was ready, it took the band three weeks to record.
