Genius or Garbage?

After almost a decade of ignoring it, I listened to U2's Achtung Baby again, and in "One" came across what always struck me as a remarkable lyric:

Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head?

That line is either absolutely brilliant, or some of the most laughably pretentious drivel I've ever heard. I still can't decide which.

I vote pretentious. Bono has a soft spot for people who can't be saved but he's no genius.
