U2 new album piece in Blender: "It Could Be About God..."

I've been avoiding blogging much of the press that's sprouting up everywhere about U2's How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. But this example I think I'll link, both for the article and the sidebar. A few comments: Do I read it right that "I've been born again, and again and again and again" is a new lyric? Interesting description of the "Yahweh" text: "A modern hymn with a broadband connection to God." And this, from the Edge: "These are the most direct and concise lyrics we've done...there's no hiding behind mysterious metaphors." And one more comment: The quote that gives the track-by-track sidebar its title sounds, obviously and instantly, like a Bono line. Except the person who said it was Adam Clayton.
