Present Tense Lyrics - Pearl Jam

Review The Song (2)



Do you see the way that tree bends?
Does it inspire?
Leanin' out to catch the sun's rays
A lesson to be applied
Are you getting something out of this?
All encompassing trip

You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets, Oh
Or you can, come to terms and realize
You're the only one who can forgive yourself, Oh
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense

Have you ideas on how this life ends?
Checked your hands and studied the lines?
Have you the belief that the road ahead
Ascends off into the light?

Seems that needlessly it's gettin' harder
sponsored links
To find an approach and a way to live
Are we gettin' something out of this
All encompassing trip

You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets, Oh
Or you can come to terms and realize
You're the only one who cannot forgive yourself, Oh
Ah, makes much more sense to live in the present tense

These lyrics are just incredible. I agree with the above post that Pearl Jam is just a phenominal musical act in which there is no bullshit laser show and wild graphics when on stage. What we witness is a stripped down stage with some candles and a projection screen along with a band that is there to rock out. Nothin' but pure rock, with great guitars, the occasional good synth and sometime a cello.

I just sent these lyrics to a dear friend suffering from the loss of a long term relationship. The words speak such a deep truth. You can spend your time alone, redigesting past regrets, or you can some to terms and realize you're the only one who cannot forgive yourself. It makes much more sense to live in the present tense.

Just poignant, human emotive, incredibly in touch with your inner being lyrics. Then you add the crescendo build up during the song... and then brought back down at the end. Just stunning.

Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam are to be experienced. If you have the means, see these guys, they rock.

just one of this band's great lyrical efforts- this one by mike mccready- the secret to this band (which the mainstream has basically written off since the early 90's - yet they sell out every arena they play in minutes and their live shows are this generations "dead") besides the live shows as mentioned are the lyrics to their songs-
