Pearl Jam lyrics

Sometimes
Time: 2:40
Vedder
Large fingers pushing paint
You're god and you've got big hands
Colors blend
The challenges you give me
Seek my part
Devote myself
My small self
Like a book amongst the many on a shelf
Sometimes I know
Sometimes I rise
Sometimes I fall
Sometimes I don't
Sometimes I cringe
Sometimes I live
Sometimes I walk
Sometimes I kneel
Sometimes I speak of nothing at all
Sometimes I reach to myself dear god

Hail, Hail
Time: 3:41
Gossard, Vedder, Ament, McCready

Ah is there room for both of us both of us apart
Are we bound out of obligation is that all we got
I get the words and then I get to thinking
I don't want to think I want to feel
And how do I feel and how do I
If you're the only one will I never be enough yeah
Hail hail the lucky ones I refer to those in love yeah
Oh how I'll love you til the day I die and beyond
Are we going to the same place if so can I come
It's egg rolling thick and heavy all the past you carry
Oh I could be new you underestimate me
If you're the only one will I never be enough yeah
Hail hail the lucky ones I refer to those in love yeah
I sometimes realize I could only be as good as you'll let me
Are you woman enough to be my man bandaged hand in hand
I find it on the run in a race that can't be won yeah
All hail the lucky ones I refer to those in love yeah
If you're my only one so could you only one
I want to be your one enough you want no one you're one


Who You Are
Time: 3:48
Gossard, Irons, Vedder

Come to send not condescend
Transcendent to consequences
To transcend where we are
Who are we who we are
Trampled marks on your souls
Changes all you're a part
Seen it all not at all
Can't defend fucked up men
Take me for a ride before we leave
Circumstance clappin' hands
A driving winds happenstance
Off the track in the mud
That's the marks before mentioned words
Just a little time before we leave
Stop light plays its part
So I would say you've got a part
What's your part who you are
You are who who you are


In My Tree
Time: 3:59
Irons, Gossard, Vedder

Up here in my tree yeah
Newspapers matter not to me yeah
No No more crowbars to my head yeah
I'm trading stories with the leaves instead yeah
I wave to all my friends yeah
They don't seem to notice me no
Ah their eyes strait on the street yo oh
Sidewalks cigarettes and seams yeah yeah
Up here so high I start to shake
Up here so high the sky I scrape
I'm so high I hold just one breath deep within my chest
Just like innocence
Eddie's new better home
Eddie falls in the home
Oh the blue sky it's his home
Eddie's blue sky home
Oh the blue sky it's his home
I remember when yeah
I swore I knew everything oh yeah
They say knowledge is a tree yeah
It's growing up just like me yeah
I'm so light the wind me shakes
I'm so high the sky I scrape
Yea I'm so high I hold just one breath to go back to my nest
To sleep with innocence
Up here so high the boughs they break
Up here so high the sky I scrape
And my eyes feel both wide open
And I got a glimpse of my innocence
Got back my innocence
Still got it still got it
Inner self?

Smile
Time: 3:52
Ament, Vedder

Don't it make you smile (x2)
When the sun don't shine
It don't shine at all
Don't it make you smile (x2)
Don't it make me smile yea
When the sun don't shine it don't shine at all yea
Don't it make me smile
I miss you already I miss you always
I miss you already yea I miss you all day
This is how I feel
I miss you already yea I miss you always
Three crooked hearts swirls all around yea
I miss you all day
Don't it make you smile (x2)
Three crooked hearts swirls all around
Don't it make you smile


Off He Goes
Time: 5:58
Vedder

1,2,1,2
Know a man his face seemed pulled and tense
Like he's riding on a motorbike in the strongest winds
So I approach with tact suggest that he should relax
But he's always moving much too fast
Said he'll see me on the flipside
Of this trip he's taking for a ride
He's been taking too much on
There he goes with his perfectly unkept clothes
There he goes
He's yet to come back but I see his picture
It doesn't look the same up on the rack
We go way back
I wonder about his insides
It's like his thoughts are too big for his size
He's been taken where I don't know
Off he goes with his perfectly unkept hope
There he goes
And now I rub my eyes for he has returned
Seems my preconceptions are what should have been burned
For he still smiles and he's still strong
Nothing's changed but the surrounding bullshit that has grown
And now he's home and we're laughing like we always did
My same old same old friend
Until a quarter to ten
I saw the strain creep in
He seems distracted and I know just what is going to happen next
Before his first step
He is off again


Habit
Time: 3:35
Vedder

See it happen to a couple of friends
See it happen and the message it sends
Takeing off for what's an obvious fall
Just to see what all the fuss is about
It's not your way
Not your way
It's not your way
Another habit says it's in love with you
Another habit says it's long overdue
Another habit like an unwanted friend
I'm so happy with my righteous self
It's not your way
Not your way
It's not your way
Never thought you'd habit (x3)
I Never thought you
Never thought you
Never thought you'd habit (x3)
I Never thought you
Never never thought you
Never thought you'd habit (x6)
Speaking as a child of the 90's
Never thought you'd habit (x3)
I Never thought you
Never thought you
Never thought you'd habit (x3)
I Never thought you
Never never thought you
Never
Never me Never you Never me

Red Mosquito
Time: 4:03
Peal Jam, Vedder

Watched from the window with a red mosquito
I was not allowed to leave the room
I saw the sun go down and now it's coming up
Somewhere in the time between
I was bitten must have been the devil
He was just paying me a little visit
Reminding me of his presence
Letting me know he's waiting ohh
Red man's your neighbor call it behavior
While you're climbing up slippery hairs
Two steps ahead of him punctures in your neck
Hovering just above your bed (x2)
I was bitten must have been the devil
He was just paying me a little visit
Reminding me of his presence
And letting me know he's waiting
He's waiting ohh there yea
If I had known then what I know now (x4)

Lukin
Time: 1:02
Vedder

Drive down the street can't find the keys to my own fucking home
I'll take a walk so I could curse my ass for being dumb
I'll make a right after the arches stinking grease and bone
Stopped at the supermarket people stare like I'm a god
I'm going to Lukins
I've got a spot at Lukins
I knocked the door at Lukins
Open the fridge
Now I know life is worth
I found the key but I returned to find an open door
Some fucking freak who claims I fathered by rape her own son
I find my wife I call the cops this days work's never done
The last I heard that freak was purchasing a fucking gun

Present Tense
Time: 5:46
McCready, Vedder

Do you see the way that tree bends
Does it inspire
Leaning out to catch the sun's rays a lesson to be applied
Are you getting something out of this all encompassing trip
You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets oh
Or you can come to terms and realize
You're the only one who can forgive yourself oh
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense
Have you ideas on how this life ends
Checked your hands and studied the line
Have you the belief that the road ahead ascends off into the light
Seems that needlessly it's getting harder
To find an approach and a way to live
Are we getting something out of this all encompassing trip
You can spend your time alone redigesting past regrets ohh
Or you can come to terms and realize
You're the only one who cannot forgive yourself ohh oh
Makes more sense to live in the present tense
?????
Mankind
Time: 3:28
Gossard

You'll be going out with radio
Going out with disco Going out like bacchanal
I'll be going out with telephone
Going out alone
To the radar zone
It's all just inadvertent imitation and I don't mean mine
It's all across this nation
If it's just inadvertent simulation a pattern in all mankind
What's got the whole world faking it
I'll be playing with my magazine
Using up my Listerine
Like Ovaltine
And you'll be dipping in your battleship
For the latest tip
For the latest dream
It's all just inadvertent imitation and I don't mean mine
It's all across this nation
If it's just inadvertent simulation a pattern in all mankind
What's got the whole world faking it
If it's just inadvertent imitation a pattern in all mankind
What's got the whole world faking it
What's got the whole world faking (x4)
What's got the whole world faking it yea
I'm Open
Time: 2:53
Irons, Vedder

A man lies in his bed in a room with no door
He waits hoping for a presence something anything enter
After spending half his life searching
He still felt as blank as the ceiling at which he's staring
He's alive but feels absolutely nothing
So is he
When he was six he believed that the moon overhead followed him
By nine he had deciphered the illusion trading magic for fact
No tradebacks
So this is what it's like to be an adult
If he only knew now what he knew then
I'm open (x2)
Come in (x4)
I'm open (x2)
Yeah
Come in (x4)
Lying sideways atop crumpled sheets and no covers
He decides to dream dream up a new self for himself
Around The Bend
Time: 4:35
Vedder

I'm wishing you a well
Mind a peace within your cell
Covers up I cast you off
I'll be watching as you breathe
I lie still you move
I send you off around the bend
I hold your head deep in my arms
My fingertips they close your eyes
Off you dream my little child
There's a sun around the bend (x2)
All evenings close like this
All these moments that I've missed
Please forgive me won't you dear
Please forgive and let me share
With you around the bend
You're an angel when you sleep
How I want your soul to keep
On and on around the bend

Daughter
Time: 3:54
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

You guys ready
Alone listless breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
Young girl violence center of her own attention
The mother reads aloud child tries to understand it
Tries to make her proud
The shades go down it's in her head
Painted room can't deny there's something wrong
Don't call me daughter not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me
She holds the hand that holds her down
She will rise above ooh...oh
Don't call me daughter not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter not fit to be
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter not fit to be
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me
The shades go down (x2)
The shades go...go...go

Time: 2:49
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Ooh spin me round roll me over fuckin' circus
Stab it down one way needle pulled so slowly
Drains and spills soaks the pages fills their sponges

Rearviewmirror
Time: 4:43
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Continued...

I took a drive today time to emancipate
I guess it was the beatings made me wise
But I'm not about to give thanks or apologize
I couldn't breathe holdin' me down
Hand on my face pushed to the ground
Enmity gauged united by fear
Forced to endure what I could not forgive
I seem to look away the wounds in the mirror waved
It wasn't my surface most defiled
Head at your feet fool to your crown
Fist on my plate swallowed it down
Enmity gauged united by fear
Tried to endure what I could not forgive yea
Saw things (x4)
Clearer (x2)
Once you were in my Rearviewmirror
I gathered speed from you fucking with me
Once and for all I'm far away
Hard to believe finally the shades are raised hey yea
Saw things so much clearer
Once you once you Rearviewmirror
Saw things so much clearer
Once you once you Rearviewmirror
Saw things so much clearer
Once you once you Rearviewmirror
Saw things so much clearer
Once you...oh yeah
Rats
Time: 4:14
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

1 2 1 2 3
Uh they don't eat don't sleep
They don't feed they don't seethe
Bare their gums when they moan and squeak
Lick the dirt off a larger one's feet
They don't push don't crowd
Congregate until they're much too loud
Fuck to procreate till they are dead
Drink the blood of their so called best friend
They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
Don't pack themselves together and run as one
Don't shit where they're not supposed to
Don't take what's not theirs they don't compare
They don't scam don't fight
Don't oppress an equals given rights
Starve the poor so they can be well fed
Line their holes with the dead ones bread
They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
Don't pack themselves together and run as one
Don't shit where they're not supposed to Don't take what's not theirs they don't compare
They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
Don't pack themselves together and run as one
Don't shit where they're not supposed to
Don't take what's not theirs
They don't compare
Rats they don't compare (x2)
Ooh
Ben the two of us need look no more yea (x3)
Ben the two of us need look no more more more yea
Ben the two of us need look no more yea (x2)
Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town
Time: 3:15
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

I seem to recognize your face
Haunting familiar yet I can't seem to place it
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name
Lifetimes are catching up with me
All these changes taking place
I wish I'd seen the place
But no one's ever taken me
Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away (x2)
I swear I recognize your breath
Memories like fingerprints are slowly raising
Me you wouldn't recall for I'm not my former
It's hard when your stuck upon the shelf
I changed by not changing at all
Small town predicts my fate
Perhaps that's what no one wants to see
I just want to scream hello
My god its been so long never dreamed you'd return
But now here you are and here I am
Hearts and thoughts they fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away (x2)
Hearts and thoughts they fade away yea
Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away (x3)
Hearts and thoughts they fade
Leash
Time: 3:08
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Troubled souls unite we got ourselves tonight oh

Young lover I stand

Will myself to find a home a home within myself

Indifference
Time: 5:02
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

I will light the match this morning so I won't be alone
Watch as she lies silent for soon that will be gone
Oh I will stand arms outstretched
Pretend I'm free to roam
Oh I will make my way through one more day in hell
How much difference does it make (x2)
I will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
Oh I'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired
Oh I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
Hey I won't change direction and I won't change my mind
How much difference does it make
Mmm how much difference does it make I'll swallow poison until I grow immune
I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
How much difference (x2)
How much difference does it make (x2)
Ooh Ooh Ooh

Better Man
Time: 4:27
Vedder

Waiting watching the clock it's four o'clock it's got to stop
Tell him take no more she practices her speech
As he opens the door she rolls over pretends to sleep as he looks her over
She lies and says she's in love with him can't find a better man
She dreams in color she dreams in red can't find a better man
Can't find a better man (x2)
Ohh
Talkin' to herself there's no one else who needs to know she tells herself oh
Memories back when she was bold and strong and waiting for the world to come along
Swears she knew it now she swears he's gone
She lies and says she's in love with him can't find a better man
She dreams in color she dreams in red can't find a better man
She lies and says she still loves him can't find a better man
She dreams in color she dreams in red can't find a better man
Can't find a better man (x2)
Yeah
She loved him yeah she don't want to leave this way
She feeds him yeah that's why she'll be back again
Can't find a better man can't find a better man (x3)
Can't find a better man
Ohh ohh
Uh huh (x5)
Ohh
Aye Davanita
Time: 2:56
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Awooha aye davanita awooha awooha (x4)
Jahooha jahooha (x29 total)
Awooha aye davanita awooha awooha (x4)
Immortality
Time: 5:17
Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Vacate is the word
Vengeance has no place so near to her
Cannot find the comfort in this world
Artificial tear vessel stabbed next up volunteers
Vulnerable wisdom can't adhere
A truant finds home and a wish to hold on
But there's a trapdoor in the sun Immortality
As privileged as a whore
Victims in demand for public show
Swept out through the cracks beneath the door
Holier than thou how surrendered executed anyhow
Scrawl dissolved cigar box on the floor
A truant finds home and I wish to hold on to
But saw the trapdoor in the sun
Immortality
I cannot stop the thought of running in the dark
Coming up a which way sign
All good truants must decide
Oh stripped and sold mom an auctioned forearm
And whiskers in the sink
Truants move on cannot stay long
Some die just to live
Ohh
Stupid Mop
Time: 7:43
Ament, Gossard, Irons, McCready, Vedder

Don't you want people to love you
My spanking that's the only thing I want so much
Spanking that's the only thing I want so much
That's the only thing I want so much
Don't you want people to love you
My spanking that's the only thing I want so much
That's the only thing I want so much
Why is that better than being hugged
Why is that better than being hugged
Because you get closer to the person
Closer to the person
Why is that better than being hugged
Because you get closer to the person
Closer to the person
Just like a person having sex feels cared for
We wanna be loved so we have sex together
And they feel loved about that


All these


I got bugs I got bugs in my room
Bugs in my bed Bugs in my ears
Their eggs in my head
Bugs in my pockets Bugs in my shoes
Bugs in the way I feel about you
Bugs on my window trying to get in
They don't go nowhere waiting waiting
Bugs on my ceiling crowded the floor
Standing sitting kneeling A few block the door
And now the question's
Do I kill them become their friend
Do I eat them raw or well done
Do I trick them I don't think they're dumb
Do I join them looks like that's the one
I got bugs on my skin tickle my nausea
I let it happen again they're always takin' over
I see they surround me I see see them deciding my fate I got bugs in my room one on one
That's when I had a chance
I'll just stop now I'll become naked
And with the I'll become one
Satan's Bed
Time: 3:25
Gossard, Vedder

It's not all been said been said and done
I've never slept in Satan's bed
Although I must admit still visits my place
Uninvited as you know he don't wait
Funny how he always seems to fit in
Funny how I always want to give in
Sundays Fridays Tuesdays Thursdays the same
Sometimes this special guest he don't like to leave
Already in love (x3)
Already
Who made who made up made up the myth
That we were born to be covered in bliss
Who set the standard born to be rich
Such fine examples skinny little bitch
Model role model roll some models in blood
Get some flesh to stick so they look like us
I shit and I stink I'm real join the club
I'd stop and talk but I'm already in love
Already in love (x3)
Already in love Ah ha ha ha
Torture follows reward follows torture follows reward
Oh oh my butt
Never shook Satan's hand look see for yourself
You'd know it if I had that shit don't come off
I'll rise and fall let me take credit for both
Jump off a cliff don't need your help so back off
I'll never suck Satan's dick
Again you'd see it you know right round the lips
I'll wait for an angel but I won't hold my breath
Amagine they're busy think I'm doing okay
Already in love (x6)
Already
