Why Go
Pearl Jam Lyrics


She scratches a letter
Into a wall made of stone
Maybe someday
Another child
Won't feel as alone as she does
It's been two years
And counting
Since they put her in this place
She's been diagnosed
By some stupid fuck
And mommy agrees

Why go home?
Why go home?
Why go home?

She seems to be stronger
But what they want her to be is weak
She could play pretend
She could join the game, boy
She could be another clone
Ooh, whoa ah, yeah oh
Why go home, why go home, why go home, why go home

What you taught me (why go home)
Put me here don't come visit, mother (why go home)
Sting me

Why go home, why go home, why go home, why go home
What you taught me (why go home)
Put me here don't come visit, mother, mother yeah (why go home)
Why go home, why go home, why go home, why go home, why go home, whoa

This song was inspired by a young friend of Eddie's who'd been committed to a psychiatric facility after being caught smoking pot, the singer lashed out at selfish parents who weren't willing to weather the difficulties associated with raising a family.

Maybe it was inspired but he stole the melody, riffs and sound from Siva off Gish . Listen to it if you havent...... most of this album is a rip for cash

It's like watching someone you know who's very strong-willed be broken down... They have no choice.

This was a time in society when parents were given their children off to the TV or didn't like to be bothered by their children. Tad bit of Jeremy there...

Figures. Selfish parent's want to have kids when they never dealt with their own issues!
How dare they put it on a child!

nirvana's nevermind, soundgarden's badmotorfinger and pearl jam's ten, clearly 1991 was one of the greatest years in the music industry

Andi Randolph
