How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

One Step Closer

  1. In the October issue of 2004 of Blender Magazine, the song is labeled as One Step Closer to Knowing and Bono describes the background for his inspiration for the song: I was talking to Noel Gallagher [from Oasis] about my dad, who lost his faith toward the end of his life. And Noel asked, 'Does he believe in God?' And I said, 'I don't think he knows.' So Noel went, 'Well, he's one step closer to knowing now.' And I thought, 'I'm going to write that song...'
