Kokua Festival – ciąg dalszy

Według wstępnych ustaleń Ed Vedder dzisiaj w nocy, podczas drugiego dnia festiwalu Kokua, zagrał taki oto set:

Set: „You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” (The Beatles), „Driftin’”, „I Am Mine”, „No More” (nowa piosenka), „Throw Your Hatred Down” (Neil Young), „Wasted Reprise”, „Hawaii’ 78” (Israel Kamakawiwo`ole), „Better Man” / „I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” (The Ramones), „Watch Outside” (The Mono Men), „Corduroy”, „Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town”, „Indifference”

Set może być niekompletny, a piosenki — wymienione w złej kolejności. Większość kawałków została zagrana z pomocą zespołu Jacka Johnsona i jego samego.

Nowa piosenka, „No More” to ta sama, o której wspominaliśmy wczoraj. Poniżej jej zapis audiowizualny:

Ed Vedder wykonujący piosenkę „No More” (video)

Ktoś na forum Red Mosquito spisał jej tekst:

I speak for a man who gave for this land
Took a bullet in the back for his pay
Spilled his blood in the dirt and the dust
He’s back to say:What he has seen is hard to believe
And it does no good to just pray
He asks of us to stand
And we must end this war today

With his mind, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his heart, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his life he’s saying, „No more war!”

With his eyes, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his body, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his voice, he’s saying, „No more war!”

Yeah, nothing’s too good for a veteran
Yeah, this is what they say
So nothing is what they will get
And there’s no American way

The lies we were told to get us to go
Were criminal (?)… let us be straight
Let’s get to the point where our voices get heard
And I know what I’ll say

With his mind, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his heart, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his life he’s saying, „No more war!”

With his eyes, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his voice, he’s saying, „No more!”
With his body, he’s saying, „No more war!”

No more innocents dying
No more terror rising
No more eulogizing
No more evangelizing
No more presidents lying
No more war

With our minds, we’re saying, „No more!”
With our hearts, we’re saying, „No more!”
With our lives, we’re saying, „No more war!”

Przypomnijmy, że piosenka to samodzielne dzieło Veddera, które powstało z myślą o filmie „Body Of War”.
