all Pearl Jam lyrics



Sometimes
large fingers pushin' me
you're God and you 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
hear Godback to top
Hail Hail
ah is there room for both of us
both of us apart?
are we bound out of obligation?
is that all we've got?
i hear the words
and then I get to thinking
i don't wanna think
i wanna feel
how do i feel?
how do i?
if you're the only one
will i never be enough then?
hail hail the lucky ones
that are close to those who know them
swore i'd love you till the day i die
ah, and beyond
are we going to the same place?
if so, can I come?
it's egg rolling thick and heavy
ah the past we carry
ah I could be new
you underestimate me
if you're the only one
will i never be enough then?
hail hail the lucky ones
i refer to those in love
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
like winding on a run
in a race that can't be won, yeah
all hail the lucky ones
that are close to those in lukin
if you're my only one
suppose you will live huh?
i want to be your one
and now
you are
no one
your one
whooh, mtcha mtcha,...back to top
Who You Are
come to send not condesend
transcendental consequences
to trancend where we are
who are we?
who we are
trampled moss on your soul
changes all you're a part
seen it all
not at all
can't defend fucked up men (or: can't defend the command ???)
stay for awhile before we leave
circumstance
clappin' hands
guiding winds
happenstance
off the track in the mud
that's the moss
in the aforementioned verse
and the wind...
there's little time
before we leave
stop light plays its part
so i would say you've got a heart
whats your part
who you are
you are who
who you areback to top
In My Tree
up here in my tree, yeah
newspapers matter not to me, yeah
no more crowbars to my head, yeah
i'm trading stories with the leaves instead, yeah
wave to all my friends, yeah
they don't seem to notice me, no
i arrested on the street yo, oh
sidewalks, cigarrettes and scenes
i feel so awesome touche
i feel so hot
the sky is gray
i'm so high
i hope this won't break
keep it in my chest
just like innocence
i remember then...yeah
thought I knew everything when
what's he doing in a tree, yeah
there's no one around just like me, yeah
i'm so lucky with these shades
i'm so out of sight its great
im so high I hold just one breath
go back to my nest, sleep in it
I feel so high
...great
I feel so high
The sky is great
... wide open
and I gotta live
of my innocence
I fight my innocense
....

Smile
don't it make you smile?
don't it make you smile?
when the sun don't shine (don't shine at all)
don't it make you smile?
don't it make you smile?
don't it make me smile?
when the sun don't shine
don't shine at all (eh, laughter)
don't it make me smile?
i miss you already
i miss you always
i miss you already, hey
i miss you all days
(this is how I feel/love you) (?)
i miss you already, heyey
i miss you always
free cooking hot spurs (???) all around
I miss you all day
don't it make you smile?

Off He Goes
One two, one two

Know a man...his face seems pulled and tense...
Like he's ridin' 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 flip side...of this trip he's taken for a ride.
He's been takin'...too much on...off he goes
With his perfectly..unkept clothes...there he goes...

He's yet to come back...but i've seen his picture
It doesn't look the same up on the rack...we go way back...

I wonder 'bout 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 gonna happen next...

Before his first step...he's off again...back to top
Habit
See it happen to a couple of friends...
See it happen and the message it sends...
Taking off for what's an obvious fall...
Just to see what all the fuss is about...

It's not your way...not your way...its not your way...

Another habit says it's in love with you...
Another habit says its long overdue...
Another habit like an unwanted friend...
I'm so happy with my righteous self...

It's not your way...not your way...its not your way...

Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
I never thought you

Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
Speaking as a child of the 90's
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...
I never thought you
Never thought you
Never thought you'd habit...
Never thought you'd habit...

Red Mosquito
I saw in the window...little red mosquito...
I was not allowed to leave the room...
I saw the sun go down...and now it's comin' up
Somewhere in the time between

I was bitten...must have been the devil
He was just paying me...a little visit reminded me of his presence
letting me know he's awaiting
oooh
red man's your neighbour
co-ed behavior
while your climbing up slippery hairs
two steps ahead of him
punctures in your neck
hoverin' just above your bed
hoverin' just above your bed
i was bitten
must have been the devil
he was just paying me
a little visit reminding me of his presence
and let me know he's awaiting
he's awaiting
ho... (pin') (?)
if i had known then
what i know now
and if i had known then
what i know right now

Lukin
Drive down the street, can't find the keys to my own fuckin home.
I take a walk so i can curse my ass for being dumb.
I make a right I pass the arches stinkin grease and bone.
Stop at the supermarket, people stare like I'm a dog.

I'm going to Lukin's
I got a spot at Lukin's
I knock the door at Lukin's
open the fridge, now i know (what) life is worth

I found my keys but i return to find an open door.
Some fuckin' freak who claims I fathered my rape her one son
I found (phoned?) my wife, i called the cops this day is never done.
But last i heard that freak was purchasing a fuckin gun.back to top
Present Tense
do you see the way that tree bends?
does it inspire?
leaning out to catch the suns rays
a lesson to be applied
are you getting something out of this
all encompassing tree?
you can spend your time alone
redigest in past regrets, oh
or you can come to terms and realize
you're the only one who can't forgive yourself, oohm
makes much more sense
to live
in the present tense
have you ideas on how this life ends?
check your hands and study the lines
have you ever believed 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 dream?
you can spend your time alone
redigest in past regrets, oooh
or you can come to terms and realize
you're the only one who cannot forgive yourself ooh!
ah, make much more sense
to live
in the present tenseback to top
Mankind
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
Its all across this nation
If it's all just inadvertent simulation a pattern all mankind
What's got the whole world fakin'? Yeah

I'll be playing with my magazine...
Using up my listerine
Like ovaltine

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
Its all across this nation
If it's all just inadvertent simulation a pattern all mankind
What's got the whole world fakin'? Yeah

What's got the whole world fakin?
What's got the whole world fakin?
What's got the whole world fakin?
What's got the whole world fakin?
What's got the whole world fakin?
What's got the whole world fakin?
What's got the whole world fakin?
What's got the whole world fakin?
Yeah, yeah..back to top
I'm Open
a man lies in his bed in a room with no door
he waits hoping for a presence
something anything to enter it
after spending half his life searching
he still feels as blank as the ceiling at which he stared
hes 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
and 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...i'm open...
Come on in...come on in...come on in...ome on in...
I'm open...i'm open...
Come on in...come on in...come on in...ome on in...
laying sideways atop crumpled sheets with no covers
he decides to dream
to dream up a new self
for himselfback to top
Around The Bend
I'm wishing you a well
Mind and peace within your cell
Covers up, I last 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
There's a sun around the bend

all the evenings close like this
all these moments that i've missed
please forgive me most my dear
please forgive and let be shared
where's you around the bend
you're an angel when you sleep
how i want your soul to keep
on and on around the bendback to top
