Alive
Pearl Jam Lyrics


Son, she said
Have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy
Was nothin' but a

While you were sittin'
Home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin'
Sorry you didn't see him
But I'm glad we talked

Oh, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive, hey, oh

While she walks slowly
Across a young man's room
She said I'm ready, for you
Why I can't remember anything
To this very day
'Cept the look, the look
Oh, you know where
Now I can't see, I just stare

I, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive, yeah

(Oh yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh)

Is something wrong?
She said
Of course there is
You're still alive
She said
Oh, do I deserve to be?
Is that the question?
And if so, if so
Who answers?
Who answers?

I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I
Oh, I'm still alive
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, yeah oh, ooh oh, yeah, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

@Abstracted Nah it's definitely the look.

"This verse is fictional and not based on Vedder’s personal experience. In a 1993 interview with Rolling Stone, Vedder revealed that she refers to the mother, and the look is not the look on the mother’s face. As Vedder put it:

The look is between her legs. Where do you go with that? That’s where you came from."

The mother is making a very memorable come on to the son. It is not every day a mother shows her son that look. Further, she is requesting that he penetrate the very birth canal that gave him life.

Vedder elaborates:

It’s an intense thing because the son looks just like the father. The son grows up to be the father, the person that she lost. His father’s dead, and now this confusion, his mother, his love, how does he love her, how does she love him? In fact, the mother, even though she marries somebody else, there’s no one she’s ever loved more than the father. You know how it is, first loves and stuff. And the guy dies. How could you ever get him back? But the son. He looks exactly like him. It’s uncanny. So she wants him. The son is oblivious to it all. He doesn’t know what the fuck is going on. He’s still dealing, he’s still growing up. He’s still dealing with love, he’s still dealing with the death of his father. All he knows is ‘I’m still alive’ – those three words, that’s totally out of burden." "

This songs hits different when you realize that Eddie is the only lead singer of the big 4 of grunge the still alive.

Process Damaged

@Álvar Díez ok

@Process Damaged the point with the Pumpkins is that they were pretty influenced by British alt rock bands such as The Cure and New Order instead of the American punk groups that inspired bands like Nirvana (Misfits, Black Flag, Ramones). But, people who say the Pumpkins aren’t grunge, they have never listened to Gish. Alongside with Nevermind, it’s probably the most grunge album I’ve listened to.

Álvar Díez

@Process Damaged Badmotorfinger is an alt-metal album actually. Superunknown sounds more grunge to me. For me, the only two bands that are actually pure grunge are Nirvana and Pearl Jam, although PJ sometimes sounds more like hard rock. The Smashing Pumpkins’ first three albums were grunge but then the band turned into Harry Potter movie with electronic elements in late 90s.

Anyway, none of the would’ve never existed without Green River.
