You'd have to ask bono & the boys. But the best songs are open to individual interpretation & can hold different meanings to different listeners. For me, this one is about money & power, power & money. The priviliged & the oppressed. Sin nature/money worship. Outside are the prisoners (what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?). Inside are the free (whom the son sets free is free indeed). If you are familiar with the bible, you can sometimes find references to biblical lessons/themes within u2 lyrical content if you seek it out. Least that is my take. But again, I am from the school of thought that there is no right or wrong when it comes to lyrical interpretation.
