Dallas 4/3/2009 change of lyrics?

Postby ronald1956 » Thu Apr 09, 2009 11:58 am

I saw a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6-XwAxfoaQ) on youtube of Anthem played in Dallas.
Did I hear it correct was there a change in the lyrics?
For me the it was always: "The signs were sent, the birth betrayed......"
Now for me it sounds like: "The signs were sent, the birth delayed"
Also I tought there was a slight delay before Leonard used the word delayed.
What do you think? did I hear this correct and if so, is there a deeper meaning for this change?

You're right - he does say delayed! Why didn't I notice it when I was there :? . I did notice that he also made a change in 'Ain't No Cure For Love', changing empty church to broken church.

Have no idea why this is being done. Darn it, just when we think we are getting our minds around his lyrics, we have to rethink them :roll: . Kinda fun though :) .
