Can't Keep
I wanna shake
I wanna wind out
I wanna leave
This mind and shout

I've lived
All this life
Like an ocean
In disguise
I don't live for
Ever
You can't keep
Me here

I wanna race
With the sundown
I want a last breath

Forgive
Every being
The bad feelings
It's just me
I won't wait
For answers
You can't keep
Me here

I wanna rise
And say goodnight
Wanna take
A look on the other side

I've lived
All those lives
It's been wonder
Full at night
I will live for
Ever
You can't keep
Me hereback to top
Save You
Gonna save you fucker,....not gonna lose you
Feeling cocky and strong,.. can't let you go,...
Too important to me

Too important to us,... we'd be lost without you
Baby, let yourself fall,... I'm right below you now

And fuck me if I say something you don't wanna hear
And fuck if you only hear what you wanna hear
Fuck me if I care,... but I'm not leaving here

You helped me when I was down,... I'll help when you're down
Why are you hitting yourself,... c'mon hit me instead

Let's pick up your will,... it's grown fat and lazy
I'm sympathetic as well,... don't go on me now

And I'm not living this life without you, I'm selfist and clear
And you're not leaving here without me, I don't wanna be without
My best friend,... wake up to see you could have it all

Cause there is but you,... and something within you
It's taken control,.. let's beat it, get up let's go

Oh you're in your own world, let's see the whole world
Let's pick up your soul

And fuck me if I say something you don't wanna hear
And fuck me if you only hear the treble in your head
Please help,... me,... to help you,... help yourself

Help me help yourself,... please want me to,... please let me to

Help youback to top
Love Boat Captain
Is this just another day,... this God forgotten place?
First comes love, then comes pain. let the games begin,...
Questions rise and answers fall,... insurmountable.

Love boat captain
Take the reigns and steer us towards the clear,... here.
It's already been sung, but it can't be said enough.
All you need is love

Is this just another phase? earthquakes making waves,...
Trying to shake the cancer off? stupid human beings,...
Once you hold the hand of love,.. it's all surmountable.

Hold me, and make it the truth,...
That when all is lost there will be you,...
Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing
And there's just one word I still believe
And it's

It's an art to live with pain,... mix the light into grey,..
Lost 9 friends we'll never know,.. 2 years ago today
And if our lives became too long, would it add to our regret?

And the young, they can lose hope cause they can't see beyond today,...
The wisdom that the old can't give away
Hey,...
Constant recoil...
Sometimes life
Don't leave you alone.

Hold me, and make it the truth,...
That when all is lost there will be you.
Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing
And there's just one word that I still believe and it's
Love,... love. love. love. love.

Love boat captain
Take the reigns,.. steer us towards the clear.
I know it's already been sung,... can't be said enough.
Love is all you need,.. all you need is love,..
Love,.. love,...
Love.back to top
Cropduster
Light green to green, dark green, brown..
Every life is falling down
Brown to black, it's coming back
Dies to be part of the ground
Seed to seedling, root to stem

Eyes, no eyes, there's no difference,...
Every life is looking in
Swallowing seeds on the deathbed,...
Dig a hole in,... the garden.

Everyone is practicing,...
But this world's an accident.
I was the fool because I thought

I thought the world
Turns out the world thought me
It's all the other way round
We're upside down

Daddy's gone up flames,..
But this ain't no movie
This ain't no book you can close
When the big lie hits your eye.

Everybody's practicing,....
Our world's an accident
I was the fool because I thought

Let the fluence sat it down.
There's an upside of down.

The moon is rolling round the world.back to top
Ghost
The mind is grey,... like the city
Packing in and overgrown
Love is deep,... dig it out
Standing in a hole alone
Working for something,.. that we can never hold
A place in the clouds.
Your place to hide oh my oh

I'm flying away, away
I'm driving away, away

The tv, she talks to me
Breaking news and building walls
Selling us, what I don't need
Didn't know soap made you taller

So I'm riding away, away
Hiding away, away

So much talk it makes no sense at all

So I'm flying away, away
Driving away, away

Passing old friends I don't miss at all

It doesn't hurt,.. when I bleed
But memories they eat me
I've seen it all before,..
Bring it on cause I'm no victim

Dying
Dyingback to top
I Am Mine
The selfish they're all standing in line...
Faith in their hope and to buy themselves time.
Me, I figure as each breath goes by,
I only own my mind.

The north is to south what the clock is to time.
There's east and there's west and there everywhere life.
I know that I was born and I know that I'll die.
The in between is mine. I am mine.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with time...
We're different behind the eyes, there's no need to hide.
We're safe tonight.

The ocean is full cause everyone's crying,
The full moon is looking for friends at high tide.
The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrows denied.
I only know my mind. I am mine.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with time.
We're different between the lines, there's no need to hide...
Cause we're safe tonight.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with time.
We're different behind the eyes, there's no need to hide.

And the feeling it gets left behind...
Oh the innocence broken with lies.
We're different behind the eyes.
We're safe tonight.back to top
Thumbing My Way
I have not been home since you left long ago
I'm thumbing my way back to heaven
Counting steps, walking backwards on the road
I'm counting my way back to heaven
I can't be free with what's locked inside of me
If there was a key, you took it in your hand
There's no wrong or right, but I'm sure there's good and bad
The questions linger overhead
No matter how cold the winter, there's a springtime ahead
I'm thumbing my way back to heaven
I wish that I could hold you
I wish that I had
Thinking 'bout heaven
I let go of a rope, thinking that's what held me back
And in time I've realized, it's now wrapped around my neck
I can't see what's next, from this lonely overpass
Hang my head and count my steps, as another car goes past
All the rusted signs we ignore throughout our lives
Choosing the shiny ones instead
I turned my back, now there's no turning back
No matter how cold the winter, there's a springtime ahead
I smile, but who am I kidding?
I'm just walking the miles, every once in a while I'll get a ride
I'm thumbing my way back to heaven
Thumbing my way back to heaven
I'm thumbing my way back to heaven...back to top
You Are
(Roit Act)


lyrics as they are written on the album

words: Matt Cameron / Eddie Vedder
music: Matt Cameron

THIS BROKEN WHEEL IS COMING UNDONE
AND THE ROADS EXPLODING
BUT YOU'RE KEEPING ME STRONG
ROLLING ALONG WITH YOU,...

LOVE IS A TOWER
AND YOU'RE THE KEY
LEADING ME HIGHER
WHEN YOU LET ME IN

KEEPING US CLOSE,.... SO CLOSE
ON DOWN THE LIME

SOMETHIMES I BURN LIKE A DOT ON THE SUN
WITH NO ONE KNOWING
BUT YOU'RE KEEPING ME STRONG
MOVING ALONG WITH YOU

YOU ARE A TOWER OF
STRENGTH TO ME
THE DARKENING HOUR
SEES LIGHT AGAIN

ooh wah,... ooh wah,.. ooh wah,.. ooh wah,.. ooh wah.
ooh wah,... ooh wah,.. you are,.. you are,..

LOVE IS A TOVER
OF STRENGTH TO ME
I AM THE SHORELINE
BUT YOU'RE THE SEA.

YOU ARE.back to top
Get Right
I want for to lay down, I'm waiting 'till sundown
I'm searching the haystacks, water is sunshine, wait for the moment
The moment between us, the fire is made now, hot to the touch
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right with you
Bakers dozen parades, stand and debate
Out single file, nine in a row, swear if you must
Keeping your boots on, float with the now, hot to the touch
Concrete underground, cast out everyday, the dregs of society
Underbelly, inside of me, rejoice and follow thee
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right with it, with you
With... you...
Yeah
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get right
I wanted to get rightback to top
Green Disease
It's a disease,... and they're all green
It emminates from their being
Agitation,.. with occupation

And like weeds,.. with big leaves
Stealing light from what's beneath
Where they have more,...
Still they take more

Course I know,.. then I don't
There's a stoway with my throat
It's deceiving
I don't believe him

We can scream,.. out our doors
Behind the wall a fat man snores
In his dreams he's,...
Choking on leaves

Well I guess
There's nothing wrong with what you say
Believe me
Just asking you to sway
No white
Or black
Just grey
Can you feel this,..
World with your heart and not your brain?back to top
Help Help
Tell me what I wanna hear
This suits too good to be true
My dear

Tell me lies
Tell me lies, tell me
Tell me lies, tell me

Help me

Storybook keeps from hurting me
You see
Shell of the man from the sea

Tell me lies
Tell me lies, tell me
Tell me lies, tell me

Tell me why
Tell me why, tell me
Tell me why, tell me

Tell me lies,...

Help me

Reservoir
Of hate and fear
Invisible
In repair
A hundred theives
Cast a spell
This is hell

Help me

The man they call my enemy, I've seen his eyes
He looks just like me, a mirror

The more you read, we've been deceived
Everyday it becomes clearer,...

Clearer.

Not my enemy,.. no, not my enemy,..
Don't speak for me. no, not my enemy.back to top
Bushleaguer
How does he do it? how do they do it? uncanny and immutable.
This is such a happening tailpipe of a party.
Like sugar, the guests are so refined, (look like melting mice)

A confidence man, but why so beleagued?
He's not a leader, he's a texas leaguer
Swinging for the fence, got lucky with a strike
Drilling for fear, makes the job simple
Born on third, thinks he got a triple

Blackout weaves it's way through the cities
Blackout weaves it's way through the cities
Blackout weaves it's way,...

I remember when you sang
That song about today
Now it's tomorrow and
Everything has changed

A think tank of aloof multiplication
A nicotine wish and a colossus decanter
Retrenchment and foolishness
What's the buckos?
The raves have not a clue
The immenseness of suffering
And the odd negotiation, a rarity
With onionskin plausibility of life,
And a keyboard reaffirmation

Blackout weaves it's way through the cities
Blackout weaves it's way through the cities
Blackout weaves it's way,...

I remember when you sang
That song about today
Now it's tomorrow and
Everything has changedback to top
1/2 Full
Climbing on a mountain
Floating out on the sea
Far from lights of a city
The elements they speak to me

Whispering that life
Existed long before breed
Balancing the world
On it's knee

Don't see some men as 1/2 empty
See them 1/2 full of shit
Thinking that we're all but slaves
There's ain't gonna be

No middle anymore
It's been said before
The haves be having more
Yet still bored

Won't someone save?
Won't someone save
The world?back to top

All or None
It's a hopeless... situation
And I'm starting to believe
That this hopeless... situation
Is what I'm trying to achieve

But I try
To run on
Towards
All or none,... all or none

Here's the selfless confession
Leading me back to war
Can we help that,.. our destinations
Are the ones we've been before

I still try
To run on
Towards all
Or none,... all or none

To myself i... surrender
To the one I'll never please

I still try,.. to run on
But I still try,.. to run on
But it's
All or none,... all or none.back to top
