Son, she said, have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy was nothin' but a
While you were sittin' home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin'
Sorry you didn't see him
But I'm glad we talked

Oh, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, oh

Oh, she walks slowly, across a young man's room
She said I'm ready for you
I can't remember anything to this very day
'Cept the look, the look
Oh, you know where
Now, I can't see, I just stare

I, I'm still alive
Hey, I, but, I'm still alive
Hey, I, boy, I'm still alive
Hey, I, I, I'm still alive, yeah

Oo
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh

Is something wrong? she said
Well, of course, there is
You're still alive, she said
Oh, and do I deserve to be?
Is that the question?
And if so, if so, who answers? who answers?

I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, but, I'm still alive
Yeah, I, oh, I'm still alive
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Wow, uh-huh
Yeah, uh-huh
Oh, wow, uh-huh
Yeah, uh-huh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh
Oh

My favourite Pearl Jam song to air guitar to. Channeling my inner Jeff Ammet right now. {#Bananajam}

On a dreary rainy afternoon the world slid towards Hell, riding a trainwreck of a segue...

 
Anything after Tull would be a relief for me.

Still love this.


must be PJ TEN day....

Black a few hours ago....

...and now Alive....

....can't wait for Jeremy


Mike McCready can do no evil, but Eddie Vedder's voice always annoyed me.
heard this song after getting fired from a job I enjoyed.

Every time I hear it (forget the lyrics) I am reminded to rise and stay alive!

Can't explain why this record and this whole album speaks to me when much of grunge leaves me a little cold. This is still raw, screamy gorgeousness for me.
