    beliefs.

    thats it. that encompasses (to me) how they think about God, their social activism and responsibilities, family, friends, the push to make the best music they can at a given time, the pursuit of perfection.

    I had to respond to this one... as mine are very different from yours:

    -sex
    -spirit
    -love
    -politics
    I am not sure how religion fits in there. If anything, U2 has seemed to be pretty anti-religion and pro-spirituality. I have never gotten a preachy vibe off the lyrics.
    But yes, Love, number one word used by Bono!!

    Depends which era. If we're talking my favourite era, that is 1983-1990:

    - politics
    - evocative
    - thoughtful
    - poetic

    If we're talking ATYCLB and HTDAAB:

    - formulaic
    - bland
    - weak
    - cliche

    I'd go with desire, loss, justice, and faith if you're looking for the big over-arching themes.
