Mystic comeback from Eddie Vedder's Seattle veterans
The moment that you realise the new Foo Fighters single is as good as the Great Lost Nirvana Classic that Lady Courtney's promised is the moment that you realise that what they called 'grunge' - as concept, sound, nostalgia trip - is spiritually dead and buried. Pearl Jam always seemed eager to slip the genre's yoke. But their string of irrelevant mid-'90s albums...

It's a hopeless situation
And I'm starting to believe
That this hopeless situation
Is what I'm trying to achieve
This broken wheel is coming undone. And the road's exploding. Rolling along with you. Leading me higher. When you let me in. But you're keeping me strong. Keeping us close, so close, on down the line. Love is a tower and you're the key. Sometimes 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. Again. Ooh wah, ooh wah, you are, you are. The darkening hour sees light again. I am the shoreline but you're the sea. Love is a tower of strength to me. The sea. You are.
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
Gonna save you fucker
Not gonna lose you
I'm feeling cocky and strong
Can't let you go
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.
The selfish, they're all standing in line...
Faithing and hoping and to buy themselves time.
Me, I figure as each breath goes by,
I only own my mind.
Tell me what I wanna hear
This suits too good to be true
It's a disease,... and they're all green
It emminates from their being
Agitation,.. with occupation
The mind is grey,... like the city
Packing in and overgrown
Love is deep,... dig it out
Standing in a hole alone
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
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
I wanna shake
I wanna wind out
I wanna leave
This mind and shout
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)
Album: Riot Act Climbing on a mountain Far from lights of a city Floating out on the sea The elements they speak to me Whispering that life Existed long before breed Balancing the world On its knee Don't see some men as 1/2 empty See them 1/2 full of shit There's ain't gonna be Thinking that we're all but slaves It's been said before No middle anymore The haves be having more Yet still bored Won't someone save Won't someone save? The world?
