Down
          Time: 3:17
          Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Down. Fall by the wayside no getting out.
Oh down. Cry me a river dried up and dammed.
The names can be changed but the place is still the same.
I am loaded. Told that all's for naught. Holds me down.

Rise. Life is in motion. I'm stuck in line.
Oh, rise. You can't be neutral on a moving train.
One day the symptoms fade. Think I'll throw these pills away.
And if hope could grow from dirt like me. It can be done.

Won't let the light escape from me.
Won't let the darkness swallow me. Yeah...

Ah, so long.


Undone
          Time: 3:10
          Ament

Last stop on the westcoast line.
South of the northern border.
One small corner home tonight.
Everybody they know me there.
Don't get any second glances.
Chances are that they don't care.

Worries come undone like the changes everyday.
Change don't come at once.
There's a wave building before it breaks.

Can't wait for election day.
Where the nasty occupation.
Corporations rule the day.
Working on the pendulum throws.
Farther out to the one side swinging.
Has to sweep back the other way.

The world has come undone.
Another day and who can wait.
Change don't come at once.
It's a wave building before it breaks.

All this hope and nowhere to go.
This is how I used to feel but no more.

The world has come undone.
Like a game that you can play.
Change don't come from one.
It's a wave building before it breaks.


Love Boat Captain (live)
          Time: 4:51
          Vedder, Gossard

Is this just another day? This god forgotten place.
First comes love and 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 of 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 love.

It's an art to live with pain. Mix the light into grey.
Lost nine friends I'm getting to know more and more every day.
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.
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 loud enough.
Love is all you need. All you need is love.
Love.


Other Side
          Time: 4:03
          Ament

It's not the same without you up here.
Can't find my wheels.
Your absence is what breeds this fear.
Warm breath and all it steals.

You can't know how it feels to be in here.
All the dark horse fields befriending me.

Playing ain't the same without you here.
We've come to hate the golden rule.
Cannot seem to make the dots connect.
The morning light don't show you near.

You can't know what it's like to bleed from here.
The blackened world goes white. It goes nowhere.

Death ain't the same without you dear.
I make the others run and hide.
New York streets seem to make it worse.
All this noise inside the quiet.

I can't hold on. The weight you bear.
My body's broken fast. Please lift me up.
You can't know what it's like to be inside.
Your fading melodies can't beat my need.

I'm not the same without you here.
How can I quit to be there.
Sit and stare. Stare. Begging for a prayer.
