Worldwide Suicide Lyrics - Pearl Jam

Review The Song (9)



I felt the earth on Monday
It moved beneath my feet
In the form of a morning paper
Laid out for me to see
I saw his face in the corner picture
I recognized the name
Could not stop staring at the
Face I'd never see again

It's a shame to awake, in a world of pain
What does it mean when war has taken over?
It's the same every day in a hell man-made
What can be saved, and who will be left to hold her?

The whole world...
World Over...
Yeah, it's a world wide suicide

The whole world...

World Over
It's a world wide suicide

Medals on a wooden mantle
Next to a handsome face
That the president took for granted
Writing checks that others pay
And in all the madness
Thought becomes numb and naive
So much to talk about and
Nothing for them to say

It's the same everyday and the wave won't break
Tell you to pray, while the devil's on their shoulder
Laying claim to the take that soldiers save
Tell them to quit it, the truth's already out there

The whole world...
World Over...
Yeah, it's a world wide suicide

The whole world...
World Over...
It's a world wide suicide

Looking in the eyes of the fallen
You got to know there is another, another, another, another, another...
Way

It's a shame to awake,in a world aflame
What does it mean when war has taken over?
It's the same everyday and the wave won't break
Tell you to pray, while the devil's on their shoulder

The whole world...
World Over...
It's a world wide suicide

The whole world...
World Over...
It's a world wide suicide

The whole world...
World Over...
It's a world wide suicide

The whole world...
World Over...
It's a world wide suicide

Good song... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/23/09

I like this song, but Swede... I mean look at our health care system... In the US there are plenty of people taking a stand. We are not as complacent as you think. You need to think before you speak.. or type.



That one guy | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/25/09

Ok. Swede guy, that, i believe, is a stereotype. there are plenty of ppl here unwilling to put up with the crap our government is giving us. such as myself. i am starting small and working my way up on the political hierarchy trying to reform issues i am passionate about. so i think you are wrong



Nice song | Reviewer: Swede | 9/12/09

"i just heard this song. its a good song. i like pretty much any song that takes a stand for what the band or singer believes in. we live in a world where people are too scared to say what they feel so if you have a voice USE IT!!!"

Maybe if ur from USA. Here in Sweden we dont take crap from the goverment like u do in the USA just look at ur terrible health care system.

Pearl Jam carries the mantle | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/15/08

I am grateful Pearl Jam has continuously been a vocal and informed critic of the war. This isn't the Vietnam War era and there isn't an anti-war generation in the streets. But Pearl jam has a lot to say to anyone who wants to listen.

Pearl Jam gathers no moss. Their music shows how tight they can be. Scott McCready really does rank among today's guitar greats. Listen closely and you will hear some intense and evolved riffs. And then there's Eddie's voice; one of the great male voices on the rock / pop / grunge scene today. He's used that voice in so many constructive ways but it's best know for his anti-war stance.

They are a great band but uf you dislike WW suicide, skip to "Marker in the Sand." Some of Eddie's best lyrics.



to each their own, etc? | Reviewer: steven | 12/15/07

I'll write this one in numbers so I can keep track of what I've said:
1. At first I considered this song to be nothing more than OK. After witnessing it live a few times, I've come to thoroughly enjoy it. I think it's a terrific song, with just the right kind of aggression and music. The words are good. I think they're not Vedder's best, but there are quite a few super-good lines there.
2. That said, I think that everyone in the world is entitled to hate this song, just as much as I'm entitled to love it.
3. However, telling PJ to just die already is quite an exaggeration, is it not?



How Dare You | Reviewer: Sean | 7/25/07

That Anonymous prick is too afraid to post his name so that I can personally hate him for putting down a song he probably doesn't even understand. I hope that coward hears this.
And by the way this song kick ass and puts things into perspective concerning the Big people making soldiers fight their war and then claiming the credit. Pricks.



Die, Please | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/19/07

I used to be alright with pearl jam (old stuff that is) until i heard this song. This song is horrid and haggard, Now even when I hear their old music It reminds me of this shit, now i cant listen to any pearl jam without it reminding me of this terrible song.



Great song on an even greater album | Reviewer: Jason | 7/18/06

World Wide Suicide is an awesome song about current events, specifically about the Iraq War, and how it affects everyone in the world today. Read the lyrics and see for yourself. The new self-titled album by Pearl Jam that features this song is their best album in years, but if you're like me, you may not think so right away. As a matter of fact, after hearing the album the first time, I wasn't impressed at all. I liked a couple of songs, and didn't really care for the rest. But I kept thinking about it -- certain lyrics stuck out in my head, and several of the tracks have catchy melodies and guitar hooks. And it was just enough to make me want to listen again, which made me pick up on more elements I liked, which made me listen again, etc. etc. So it's definitely an album you have to grow into, but once you do, you'll love it! Buy it and enjoy...
