The saints are coming

Green Day i U2 su prije nekog vremena održali koncert u Superdome-u u New Orleansu (to je onaj grad kojeg je devastirala Katrina). Superdome je tih dana bio korišten kao prihvatilište onih koji su ostali bez krova nad glavama.

Pjesma koju su otpjevali započinje stihovima iz glasovite pjesme Animalsa; There is a house in New Orleans…

There is a house in New Orleans, They call The Superdome.
It’s been the ruin of many a poor boy, and God, I know I’m one of them.

I cried to my daddy on the telephone,
how long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come down,
the line went.
But the shadows still remain since your descent,
your descent.

I cried to my daddy on the telephone,
how long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come home,
the line went.
But the shadows still remain since your descent,
your descent.

The saints are coming, the saints are coming.
I say no matter how I try, I realize that there’s no reply.
The saints are coming, the saints are coming.
I say no matter how I try, I realize that there’s no reply.

A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief,
how long now?
Until the weather change condemns belief,
how long now?
When the night watchman lets in the thief
Whats wrong now?

The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realize that there’s no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realize there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try, I realize there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try, I realize there’s no reply
