Pearl Jam Bugs Lyrics

Last updated: 12/13/2012 01:19:21 PM


I got bugs
I got bugs in my room
Bugs in my bed
Bugs in my ears
Their eggs in my head
Bugs in my pockets
Bugs in my shoes
Bugs in the way I feel about you

Bugs on my window
Trying to get in
They don't go nowhere
Waiting, waiting...
Bugs on my ceiling
Crowded the floor
Standing, sitting, kneeling...
A few block the door

And now the questions:
Do I kill them?
Become their friend?
Do I eat them?
Raw or well done?
Do I trick them?
I don't think they're that dumb
Do I join them?
Looks like that's the one

I got bugs on my skin
Tickle my nausea
I let it happen again
They're always takin' over
I see they surround me, I see...
See them deciding my fate
Oh, that which was once...was once up to me...
Now it's too late

I got bugs in my on one
That's when I had a chance
I'll just stop now
I'll become naked
And with the...I'll become one

Apparently Eddie Vedder said this song is about dealing with the stress and loss of privacy that comes with fame. It's not necessarily the most musical piece I've ever heard, but I like it none the less

Not a song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/18/11

For anyone that thinks that this is PJ's worst song, IT'S NOT A SONG! I like listening to it because it is some really amusing audio, and obviously wasn't made for the music.I love your poetry Eddie!

You have to be in the mood. We used to listen to this album when slightly, um, under the influence of a few recreationals (I'm not advocating that, was quite a few years ago!).
Always used to make us laugh. Even sober it makes me laugh.
Slightly unnerving if you take it at face value I guess :)

Don't take life so seriously.

not so shocking | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/3/07

This song is trying to shock? I find it tame compared to Alive which is very popular but has shocking content

World referee | Reviewer: Mark | 9/11/07

Calm down Nicole.

Ever heard of a musical group experimenting or simply having fun. Like any musical group should be doing. Or maybe you,ve heard of some artists trying to shock their audience. Come on! You're smarter than that.

I'm not saying that it's their best song or even a good song, but if you don't like it, don't listen to it, don't try to police the world into not listening to it. That's very american of you.

Quessé que ça peut te faire que quelqu'un d'autre puisse apprécier ce que toi tu ne peux pas? Ton commentaire était le plus inutile et imbécile que j'ai jamais lu. Il ma fait te détester. T'es vraiment une crisse de conne Nicole.
