Pearl Jam Grievance Lyrics

sponsored links
Have a drink, they’re buying
Bottom of, bottle of denial

Big guy, big eye watching me
Have to wonder what it sees
Progress laced with ramifications
Freedom’s big plunge

Pull the innocent from a crowd
Raise the sticks, then bring ‘em down
If they fail to obey
If they fail to obey

For every tool they lend us
A loss of independence

I pledge to my grievance to the flag
‘Cause you don’t give blood, then take it back again
We’re all deserving of something more

Progress, taste it, invest-it-all
Champagne breakfast for everyone

Break when the innocent when they’re proud
Raise the stakes, then bring ‘em down
If they fail to obey
If they fail to obey

Pledge my grievance to the flag
Aw come on, don’t give blood, then take it back again
We’re all deserving of something more

I wanna breathe
I wanna see
I wanna taste
Everyone I see
I wanna run, when I’m up high
I wanna run to the sea
I only want life to be
I just wanna be
I will feel alive as long as I am free
