    This is a really haunting song, it has this kind of an eerie ring to it...

    It's got an immense amount of energy to it though, and as much as I love how Ed's voice sounded so early on (I still love Ed's voice, by the way), I cannot help but think that this is my song, the story of my life.

    I'm just hoping the girl got out of her prison...


    Look at the liner notes and you'll see it says "4 Heather" at the bottom. Heather is Eddie's cousin who was sent to rehab (probably before she was 18). He also wrote Leash for her...what a cool cousin (Ed).

    ...as far as getting out of "her prison", I know she made it out of rehab and eventually went to "night school" for high school (my bro was one of her friends at school and got to meet Eddie over at her house one day back when PJ just started making it).

    To me this song is just so sad. I interpret as she writes letters home, but they might as well be to a rock or stone, for no one is listening. Yet, the girl still writes and when discharged still wants to go home, probably seeking mom's approval, which she'll never get, unless she plays along and becomes a clone of mom!
    She, the girl, is stronger than her mother and mommy dearest can't handle it! So, mom puts her away! Some stupid Dr. diagnosis her, comfirming to mom that the girl does indeed have problems!
    Mom is the one who taught her to be so strong! Because of the fact that mom has always been so weak, this child had to grow up alone and out of that learned to be strong and independent.
    The exacy irony that put her in this locked up facility.
    But, why go home, she's asked, and I think the bottom line is for mom to just once approve of her!
    Thanks for letting me post...Heather...who, by the way, has a very weak and dependent mom and all 4 of her daughters are very strong and independent. Our mother has lots of problems with this and in the end left all of us with self-doubt and years of therapy to get her poison out of us.
    Save room for dessert!
  • omgosh I freakin' love this song!!!!
    some words when spoken...can't be taken back

    she lived like a murder...but she died. just like suicide...

    THIS SONG IS THE SONG THAT MADE ME REALIZE HOW FUCKING AWESOME THIS BAND REALLLLY IS!!!! (i could relate to this song on some level @ the time i heard it)

    THANK YOU PEARL JAM

    thanks to theskyiscrape :)


    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
    (you're right)
    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...
    why go home...
    why go home...
    why go home...
    why go home...
    what you taught me...put me here...don't come visit...mother...
    sting me...
    why go home...
    why go home...
    why go home...
    why go home...
    what you taught me...put me here...don't come visit...mother, mother, yeah...
    why go home?


    HOLY SHIT! Its been over a year and dammit! I listened to Boston this morning! DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D

    i love this song!!!

    WHY GO HOME!!!!
  • I think and I belive "Why Go" goes a lot deeper than we might first imagine.

    "Diagnose" - A strong, weighty word..."To diagnose"...Heck of a responsibility. "The diagnoser"...better be sure about the diagnose beeing set, cause the "Person" who´s beeing diagnosed, her whole life depends on the diagnose and the consequenses of the diagnose.
    Why go home?..She thinks,..She says.
    This is where They want her to be, right?..
    As long as she´s in "that place", They´ve got her exactly where They want her to be. Weak, fragile, no will,..easy to control.
    And if she gets stronger, They´ll lose their grip on her.
    For me it seems like "The Mother" has projected her own missory
    on her daughter, (eighter it is her actual daughter or it could be the daughter inside the mother herself), which resulted in her daughter´s state of mind.

    I like this song a lot, cause it´s realistic and
    the "situation" beeing described, unfortunately,..
    it happens too often.

    Well, that´s my opignon.

  • for me, the drum shuffle at the start is so exciting, almost makes my heart stop. i was kind of disappointed that Matt didn't give it at boston... he's every bit as good if not better than krusen....
    but i was still mesmerised by it. why go is the ultimate example of what great musicians PJ are; the guitar solo is without a doubt one of the most electrifying, the harmonised chorus is pulsating, the bass line is dirty and heavy and the raging vocals....what more could you want from a rock n' roll song?

    does anyone think it would make a great opening to a show? perhaps sometime soon?

    my friend has a motorcycle.

    after the whower tags that everyone for thought meant "wower"

    he purchased the whygo tag -- that one was my favorite. I love that song!!
  • pearlmuttpearlmutt Posts: 392
    and for me now why go home means something different than when i first fell in love with it.

    Now it means there is a reason to go home the reason is that she scratches a letter into a wall . . . so that maybe another child won't feel so all alone.

    I really do love that song. It's magnificent.
  • fuck i love that song - i hope they play it this coming tour!

    yay!!! appreciation for one of my fave songs!! all too often people rate this as their least favourite on Ten but i love it. it is soooo good. how can a song with lyrics as deep as these and a chorus so catchy not be massive? it is on a par with leash for songs i love to listen to when im pissed off
