What do you think of these lyrics? Spirtual? Psychedelic?
    #2182290 - 12/16/03 01:31 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I'm a pretty big Pearl Jam fan, and I've been noticing how spirtual and possibly psychedelic their lyrics are from their latest album Riot Act. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Cropduster

light green to green, dark green, brown
every life is falling down
brown to black, its 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 my death bed
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
its all the other way 'round
we're upside down
daddy's gone up in flames
but this ain't no movie
this ain't no book you can close
when the big lie hits your eye
everyone is practicing
our world's an accident
i was the fool because i thought
i thought the world
turns out the world thought me
its all the other way 'round
we're upside down
down, down, down...
let the fluency set it down
let the fluency set it down
there's an upside of down
the moon is rolling 'round the world
the moon is rolling 'round the world
the world
our world...



1/2 Full

climbing on the mountains, floating out on the sea
far from lights of a city, the elements they speak to me
whispering that life, existed long before greed
and balancing the world on its 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 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?
won't...
won't...


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

pretty thought provoking. Especially of note to me were:
"when the big lie hits your eye
everyone is practicing
our world's an accident
i was the fool because i thought
i thought the world
turns out the world thought me
its all the other way 'round
we're upside down"

and:
"whispering that life, existed long before greed
and balancing the world on its 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 ain't gonna be
no middle anymore, it's been said before
the haves be having more, yet still bored"

Very shroomy thoughts

Do the Evolution is a great song with an ever better video (download it).
