Better Man (live)
          Time: 4:37
          Vedder
          From the Germany single "Nothing As It Seems"

Waiting, watching the clock. It's four o'clock.
It's got to stop. Tell him. Take no more.
She practices her speech as he opens the door, she rolls over.
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over.

She lies and says she's in love with him. Can't find a better man.
She dreams in color, she dreams in red. Can't find a better man.
Can't find a better man. (x2)
Ohh...

Talking to herself, "There's no one else who needs to know," she tells herself. Oh...
Memories back when she was bold and strong and waiting for the world to come along.
Swears she'd do it now she swears he's gone.

She lies and says she's in love with him. Can't find a better man.
She dreams in color, she dreams in red. Can't find a better man.
She lies and says she still loves him. Can't find a better man.
She dreams in color, she dreams in red. Can't find a better man.
Can't find a better man. (x2)

She loved him. She don't want to leave this way.
She feeds him, yeah. That's why she'll be back again.
Can't find a better man. (x4)
Ohh... ohh... ohh... ohh...
Na, na, na, na...

Thank you.


Footsteps (live)
          Time: 5:23
          Vedder, Gossard
          From the Germany single "Nothing As It Seems"

Don't even think about reaching me. Because I won't be home.
Don't even think about stopping by. Don't think of me at all.

I did a what I had to do. And if there was a reason, it was you.

Don't even think about getting inside. Voices in my head. Ooh, voices.
I got scratches all over my arms. One for each day since I fell apart.

I did, oh, what I had to do. And if there was a reason it was you, oh.

And footsteps in the hall... It was you, you.
Ah oh, pictures on my chest... It was you. It was you.

I did a what I had to do. And if there was a reason... Ah, there wasn't no reason. no.
And if a there's something you'd like to do. Oh, just let me continue to a blame you.

Oh, footsteps in the hall... It was you, you.
Oh, pictures on my chest... It was you. It was you. Oh...

Alright, thanks.


Grievance (live)
          Time: 3:30
          Vedder
          From the single "Light Years"

Have a drink they're buying.
Bottom of bottle of denial.

Big eye, big eye watching me.
Have to wonder what it sees.
Progress laced with ramifications.
Freedom's big punch.

Pull the innocent when they're proud.
Raise those stakes them bring them down.
If they fail to obey.
Hey, hey, if they fail to obey. Yeah yeah.

For every tool they lend us a loss of independence.

I pledge my grievance to the flag.
Cause you don't give blood then take it back again.
Oh we're all deserving something more.

Progress tasted. Invest it all.
Champagne breakfast for everyone. Everyone.

Raise the innocent when they're proud.
Break those stakes then bring them down.
If they fail to obey.
Hey, hey, if they fail to obey.

I pledge my grievance to the flag.
Ah come-on don't give blood then take it back again.
Oh, we're all deserving something more. More. More.

I want to breathe part of the scene.
Oh, I want to taste everyone I see.
I want to run when I'm up high.
I want to run to the sea.
I want life, ah, to be.
I just want to be. Want to be, ah.
I will feel alive as long as I am free, yeah.


Soon Forget (live)
          Time: 2:04
          Vedder
          From the single "Light Years"

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.

That's one more time around. The sun is going down.
The moon is out but he's drunk and shouting.
Putting people down. He's pissing. He's living a day he'll soon forget.

Counts his money every morning. The only thing that keeps him horny.
Locked in a giant house that's alarming.
The townsfolk they all laugh.

Sorry is the fool who trades his love for hi-rise rent.
Seem the more you make equals the loneliness you get.
And it's fitting. He's barley living a day he'll soon forget.

That's one more time around and there is not a sound.
He's lying dead clutching Benjamins. Never put the money down.
He's pissing - no no - he's stiffening. We're all whistling a man we'll soon forget.
