Tonight, thank God it's them instead of you

Listen to the dialogue between Bono and Bob Geldof:
Bono: "Are you sure you want to do that? You want to say that?!?"

Geldof: "Yes, I DO want to say that."

Bono: "There's no way. I'm not singing it. 'Tonight thank God it's them instead of you?!?!' I can't sing it. I don't...I just can't sing that line."

Geldof: "You have to. Because that's the one that's going to hurt the most...

Can you imagine your family living through this? Can you imagine it?!? That's what this is about. We're having Christmas - it's fantastic. It's cozy, it's warm, we're giving each other this stuff. Outside that cozy window, there's a completely different REAL WORLD.

And when he sang it, he nailed exactly that frustration and anger in me."
