You said that you were with me
You said you were my friend
Did you really love the city
Or did you just pretend

You said you loved her secrets
And her freedoms hid away
She was better than America
That’s what I heard you say

You said how could this happen
You said how can this be
The remnant all dishonored
On the bridge of misery

And we who cried for mercy
From the bottom of the pit
Was our prayer so
damn unworthy
The Son rejected it?

So gather up the killers
Get everyone in town
Stand me by those pillars
Let me take this
temple down

The king so kind and solemn
He wears a bloody crown
So stand me by that column
Let me take this temple down

You said how could this happen
You said how can this be
The chains are gone from heaven
The storms are wild and free

There’s other ways to answer
That certainly is true
Me, I’m blind with death and anger
And that’s no place for you

There’s a woman in the window
And a bed in Tinsel Town
I’ll write you when it’s over
Let me take this temple down

Album_Leonard Cohen - Popular Problems

Prevod pesme

Samson u Nju Orleansu

Rekao si da si sa mnom
Rekao si da si mi prijatelj
Da li ti se stvarno svideo grad
ili si se samo pretvarao

Rekao si da voliš njene tajne
I njene slobode skrivene
Bila je bolja od Amerike
Tako sam te ja razumeo

Rekao si kako je ovo moglo da se desi
Rekao si kako je ovo moguće
Svi ostaci obeščašćeni
Na tom mostu boli

A mi koji smo molili za milost
Sa dna te jame
Da li je naša molitva bila tako
prokleto nedostojna
Da ju je Sin odbio?

Zato, okupi ubice
Dovedi čitav grad
Postavi me kraj onih stubova
Dozvoli mi da srušim
ovaj hram

Kralj, tako ljubazan i svečan
Nosi prokletu krunu
Zato, postavi me kraj tog stuba
Dozvoli mi da srušim ovaj hram

Rekao si kako je ovo moglo da se desi
Rekao si kako je ovo moguće
Nema više lanaca na nebu
Oluje su divlje i razularene

Ima drugih načina da se odgovori
To je sigurno
Mene, mene je zaslepela smrt i bes
I to nije za tebe

Na prozoru je neka žena
I ima jedan krevet u Tinseltaunu
Pisaću ti kad sve prođe
Dozvoli mi da srušim ovaj hram
