I noticed this the first time I heard Walk On! I tried to post about it here previously, but for some reason my post didn't go through! I think there is an intentional parallel. But also, if you look at the tone of the songs, and the albums you find them on, there is a stark contrast. Pink Floyd's point (I think) is that none of these things matter, because in the end we're all mortal, and it's all pointless. The tone is very pessimistic. Conversely, U2's point is that these are all things that you have to leave behind so you can find what is truly important. It's tone is very uplifting.
