    General CommentI love the lyrics in this song. My favorite line is the "to stare and not be stared at, to look and not be seen" one. U2 started recording Achtung Baby in Berlin, so this song is probably their thoughts on the city, reflecting on their experiences.

    I think the line "to remain always a true friend" should be changed to "a true fan." He's talking about his influences/heroes in the second line of that verse, and it makes more sense to call himself a "fan" rather than a "friend" to them.
