Oh, please don't go out on me. Don't go on me now.
Never acted up before. Son't go on me now.
I swear I never took it for granted. Just thought of it now.
Suppose I abused you. Just passing it on.
Go, fuck.

Once fastened, servile, now your getting sharp.
Moving oh so swiftly with such disarm.

Turned to my nemesis. A fool no fucking god.

          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

(You guys ready)

Alone, listless. Breakfast table in an otherwise empty room.
Young girl, violence. Center of her own attention.
The mother reads aloud, child tries to understand it.
Tries to make her proud.
The shades go down. It's in her head.
Painted room. Can't deny there's something wrong.

Don't call me daughter. Not fit to.
The picture kept will remind me.
Don't call me daughter. Not fit to.
The picture kept will remind me.
Don't call me...

She holds the hand that holds her down.
She will rise above. Ooh... Oh.

Got a gun. Fact I got two. That's Ok man 'cause I love god.
Glorified version of a pellet gun feels so manly when armed.

Glorified version of a pellet gun. (x4)

Don't think dumb is strength. Never shot at a living thing.
Glorified version of a pellet gun feels so manly when armed.

Glorified version of a pellet gun. (x3)
Glorified version of a...

Kindred to be an American.

Life comes... I can feel your heart.

05) Dissident
          Time: 3:35
          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

She nursed him there, ooh, over a night.
I wasn't so sure she wanted him to stay.
What to say? What to say?
But soon she was down. Soon he was low.
At a quarter past. A holy no.
She had to turn around.

When she couldn't hold, oh, she folded. A dissident is here.
Escape is never the safest path.
Oh, a dissidence. A dissident is here.

And to this day she's glided on.
Always home but so far away.
Like a word misplaced. Nothing said, what a waste.
But when she had contact with the conflict.
There was meaning but she sold him to the state.
She had to turn around.

When she couldn't hold she folded. A dissident is here.
Escape is never the safest path.
Oh, a dissidence. A dissident is here. Oh. Oh... Oh...

She gave him away when she couldn't hold. No, she folded.
A dissident is here.
Escape is never the safest path.
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here.
Oh, couldn't hold on. She couldn't hold. No, she folded. A dissident is here.
Escape is never the safest place. Oh, A dissident is here.

          Time: 5:59
          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

He won the lottery when he was born.
Took his mothers white breast to his tongue.
Trained like dogs. Color and smell.
Walks by me to get to him.
Police man. (x2)
All my peaces. (x2)

He won the lottery by being born.
Big hand slapped the white male american.
Do no wrong. So clean cut.
Dirty his hands it comes right off.
Police man. (x2)

          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Ooh...
Spin me round. Roll me over. Fucking circus.
Stab it down. One way needle. Pulled so slowly.
Drains and spills. Soaks the pages. Fills their sponges.

It's my blood. (x2)

Paint Ed big. Turn Ed into one of his enemies.

It's my blood. (x3)
Stab it down. Fill the pages. Suck my life out.

Rats.


08) Rearviewmirror
          Time: 4:43
          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

I took a drive today. Time to emancipate.
I guess it was the beatings, made me wise.
But I'm not about to give thanks or apologize.

I couldn't breathe. Holding me down.
Hand on my face. Pushed to the ground.
Enmity gauged. United by fear.
Forced to endure what I could not forgive.

I seem to look away. The wounds in the mirror waved.
It wasn't my surface. Most defiled.

Head at your feet. Fool to your crown.
Fist on my plate. Swallowed it down.
Enmity gauged. United by fear.
Tried to endure what I could not forgive. Yeah.

Saw things... (x4) ...clearer. (x2)
Oh, once you were in my Rearviewmirror.
I gathered speed from you fucking with me.
Once and for all I'm far away.
Hard to believe. Finally the shades are raised. Hey, yea.
Saw things so much clearer once you, once you... Rearviewmirror.
Saw things so much clearer once you, once you... Rearviewmirror.
Saw things so much clearer once you, once you... Rearviewmirror.
Saw things so much clearer once you... Oh yeah.


09) Rats
          Time: 4:14
          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

(1, 2, 1, 2, 3).

Uh they don't eat. Don't sleep.
They don't feed they don't seethe.
Bare their gums when they moan and squeak.
Lick the dirt off a larger one's feet.
They don't push. Don't crowd.
Congregate until they're much too loud.
Fuck to procreate till they are dead.
Drink the blood of their so called best friend.

They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way.
Don't pack themselves together and run as one.
Don't shit where they're not supposed to.
Don't take what's not theirs. They don't compare.

They don't scam. Don't fight.
Don't oppress an equals given rights.
Starve the poor so they can be well fed.
Line their holes with the dead ones bread.

They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way.
Don't pack themselves together and run as one.
Don't shit where they're not supposed to.
Don't take what's not theirs. They don't compare.

They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way.
Don't pack themselves together and run as one.
Don't shit where they're not supposed to.
Don't take what's not theirs. They don't compare.
Rats. They don't compare. (x2)
Ooh.

Ben the two of us need look no more. Yeah. (x3)
Ben the two of us need look no more, more, more. Yeah.
Ben the two of us need look no more. Yeah. (x2)


10) Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town
          Time: 3:15
          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

I seem to recognize your face.
Haunting familiar, yet I can't seem to place it.
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name.
Lifetimes are catching up with me.
All these changes taking place.
I wish I'd seen the place but no one's ever taken me.

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away. (x2)

I swear I recognize your breath.
Memories, like fingerprints, are slowly raising.
Me you wouldn't recall for I'm not my former.
It's hard when your stuck upon the shelf.
I changed by not changing at all.
Small town predicts my fate.
Perhaps that's what no one wants to see.
I just want to scream, "Hello."
My god its been so long. Never dreamed you'd return.
But now here you are and here I am.
Hearts and thoughts they fade away.

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away. (x2)
Hearts and thoughts they fade away. Yeah.
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away. (x3)
Hearts and thoughts they fade...


11) Leash
          Time: 3:08
          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

Troubled souls unite. We got ourselves tonight. Oh.
I am fuel, you are friends. We got the means to make amends.
I am lost. I'm no guide but I'm by your side.
I am right by your side. Yeah.

Young lover I stand. It was their idea. I proved to be a man.
Take my fucking hand. It was their idea. I proved to be a man.

Will myself to find a home. A home within myself.
We will find a way. We will find our place.

Drop the leash. Drop the leash. Get outta' my fucking face.
Drop the leash. Drop the leash. Get outta' my fucking face.
Drop the leash. Drop the leash. Get outta' my fucking face.
Drop the leash. Drop the leash.
Drop the leash we are young. (x2)
Oh, get outta' my fucking face.
Drop the leash. Drop the leash.
Get outta' my, (drop the leash) my... (drop the leash)
Delight, delight, delight in our youth. Owww.
Get outta' my fucking face. Oww.


12) Indifference
          Time: 5:02
          Abbruzzese, Ament, Gossard, McCready, Vedder

I will light the match this morning so I won't be alone.
Watch as she lies silent for soon that will be gone.
Oh, I will stand arms outstretched. Pretend I'm free to roam.
Oh, I will make my way through one more day in hell.

How much difference does it make? (x2)

I will hold the candle till it burns up my arm.
Oh, I'll keep taking punches until their will grows tired.
Oh, I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind.
Hey, I won't change direction and I won't change my mind.

How much difference does it make?
Mmm, how much difference does it make?
How much difference...

I'll swallow poison until I grow immune.
I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room.

How much difference... (x2)
How much difference does it make? (x2)
Ooh... Ooh... Ooh...
