Pearl Jam Severed Hand Lyrics

Last updated: 05/10/2006 11:00:00 AM

Big man stands behind an open door
Said, "leave your lady on the cement floor."
"Got some kicks, want to take a ride?"
I said, "yeah!"
"Take your pick, leave yourself behind"
I said, "yeah!"

I've no fear but for falling down
So look out below I am falling now
Oh please understand I just need, my friend,
A way a way a way home

Tried to walk, found a severed hand
Recognized it from the wedding band

Said "it's ok, do you want some more?"
I said, "yeah!"
"You'll see dragons after 3 or 4"
I said, "yeah!"

"Understand I'm not falling down"
I said, "look around, the room's taller now",
I can't close my eyes, 'cause I see the sound in waves
In waves, lets me stay calm

If I don't lose control
Explore and not explode
A preternatural other plane
With the power to maintain

Like a tear in all we know
Once dissolved we are free to grow
What is human, what is more?
I'll answer this

When I get home
