[B]'Binaural'[/B] burns with the intensity and desperation of a last stand...
They return, at a time when the world is dominated by trashy frat-punks and schlock-metal bozos, a moment when rock seems to have been stripped of any resonance beyond serving as the facile soundtrack for the high-jinks of beer-sodden jocks. Grunge's last men standing, and perhaps the only band of their size and calibre bringing the passion, intensity, and integrity of their underground...

Pearl Jam - Binaural: Wikipedia Album Entry
Binaural is Pearl Jam's sixth studio album, released on May 16, 2000 through Epic Records. Following a full-scale tour in support of its previous album, Yield, released in 1998, the band took a short break. The band then reconvened toward the end of 1999 and commenced work on a new album. The music on the record featured an experimental sound, evidenced on songs that utilized binaural recording techniques.
Binaural debuted at number two on the Billboard charts. The album became the first Pearl Jam studio album to fail to reach platinum status. The album's 2000 tour spawned an enormous collection of official bootleg releases. The album has been certified Gold in the United States.

I've used hammers made out of wood
I have played games with pieces and rules
I undeciphered tricks at the bar
But now you're gone, I haven't figured out why
Theres a light, when my babys in my arms.
Theres a light, when the window shades are drawn.
Hesitate when I feel I may do harm to her.
Wash it off cause this feeling we can share.
Sorry is the fool who trades his soul for a corvette
Thinks he'll get the girl he'll only get the mechanic
What's missing? He's living a day he'll soon forget
Routine was the theme
He'd wake up, wash and pour himself into uniform
Something he hadn't imagined being
As the merging traffic passed
All my rivals will see what I have in store
I've been harboring fleets in this reservoir
Oh he deals them off of the top, ties them off
Fills it up with his past, gets carried away
Half his life a hand me down wasted away
Fills his night with the thought of a girl
All in all, it's no one's fault
Excuses turn to carbon walls
Blame it all on chemical intercourse
Have a drink they're buying
Bottom of, bottle of denial
Big guy,... big eye,... watching me...
Have to wonder what it sees...
It's out of my hands, making all hands meet
Stumble as it's crumbling out of reach
It's in the cards of destiny
Your sanity in tow
The sirens scream wanton attention
Time to take heed and change directions
Time to take stock and make omissions
There's a girl on a ledge, she's got nowhere to turn
'Cause all the love that she had was just wood that she burned
Now her life is on fire, it's no one's concern
She can blame the world, or prey till dawn
Behind her eyes there's curtains
and they are closed to hind the flames
Don't feel like home
Ease a little out
And all these words alone is nothing like your poem
Putting in and putting in
