    "I'll swallow poison until I grow immune, I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room... how much difference does it make?"
    i love that line. Although I don't think I could eve pick a favorite.
    That's two things we've got, Tape and Time.
  • Me I figure as each breath goes by,
    I only own my mind,..

    Seek my part, devote myself, my small self,
    like a book amongst the many on the shelf,.

    I swallowed my words to keep from lying,
    I swallowed my face just to keep from biting,
    I swallowed my breath, went deep, I was diving,..diving
    I surfaced when all of being was enlightened,
    ah dum,,
    Im in hiding, ooohhhhhhhh im in hiding..
  • She will rise above...

    Stop light plays its part, so I would say you've got a part...

    Are you getting something out of this all encompassing trip...

    And everything is you. Me you, you me, it's all related...

    I know I was born and I know that I'll die, the in-between is mine...

    Reaching in, the sun's fingers clutch the dawn too fast... (That one is a Stone lyric, right?)
  • No need to be void, or save up on life
    You got to spend it all
    -light years
    Like Pilate I have A dog...

    I am a huge Pearl Jam/Eddie Vedder fan.
    I think he is an amazing writer. What his words mean to us is ussually a personal interpretation which is the beauty behind art, music etc. However, I feel there are some often some genius of brevity that comes out of his pen, meanings that are universally understood, some more ambiguous..anyone have any favorites?
    Feel free to share !

    My personal favorites:
    "Clouds roll by, reeling is what they say,
    or is it just my way?" -Lowlight

    "He who forgets, will be destined to remember"-Nothingman

    I need to note: the above lyrics of Low Light you quote as Ed. - are by Jeff Ament. Kind regards

    it's impossible for me. just when i think he can't top himself, he does.
    I died. I died and you just stood there. I died and you watched. I died and you walked by and said no. I'm dead.

    That line is from "Man of the Hour". Yes, it's beautiful.

    Peace

    I've heard it a few times from Benaroya Hall cd, but not enough to know it by heart. I'm gonna listen for that line next time.

    that's the song that Eddie got nominated for a grammy for, right?--from the movie Big Fish. I thought that was a great movie. what other films has Tim Burton done?

    "and now my bitter hands cradle broken glass of what was everything"
    Black

    probably my favourite line
    "I remember one night at Muzdalifa with nothing but the sky overhead, I lay awake amid sleeping Muslim brothers and I learned that pilgrims from every land — every colour, and class, and rank; high officials and the beggar alike — all snored in the same language"

    "no matter how cold the winter there's the springtime ahead" TMW

    Fantastic lyric.
  • "...and if hope can grow from dirt like me, it can be done."
  • Ok I think this is Jeff's but I love this one...

    Stunned by my own reflection, it's looking back, sees me too clearly and swore I'd never be here again. ~Pilate

    Some more current favorites...

    And he who forgets, will be destined to remember.~Nothingman

    I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off.~Wishlist

    Sorry is the fool who trades his love for high-rise rent, seems the more you make equals the loneliness you get.~Soon forget

    She holds the hands that holds her down.~Daughter

    "No matter how cold the winter, there's a springtime ahead..." I love that line.
  • Impossible to pick just one....

    My favorite is: I know i was born and i know that i'll die, the inbetween is mine, I am mine....

    and the one from my signature ofcourse......
    To the universe, I don't mean a thing, but there is just one word I still believe and it's .....LOVE!

  • There is far too much greatness to possibly pick one line.
    Becoming a Star will become your Doom.
  • "All the advantages this lid'es go on me, picture a cup in the middle of th sea."

    "When I surfaced all of my being was enlightened."

    "Twisted thoughts that pin around my head."
  • "It's egg rolling thick and heavy, all the past you carry"

    "Are you woman enough to be my man"

    Let's face it, there aren't many songs in the Pearl Jam catalogue that don't have at least one great line.

    Just one example.

    In Hiding -

    "I swallowed my words to keep from lying.
    I swallowed my face just to keep from biting."
    ... still Alive...

    -Vacate is the word...vengeance has no place so near to her

    -It's funny when things change so much, it's all state of mind.

    -So I’ll just lie down and wait for the dream
    Where I’m not ugly and you’re lookin’ at me

    -All that's sacred comes from youth

    -you can spend your time alone redigesting past regrets
    or you can come to terms and realize
    you're the only one who cannot forgive yourself
  • Here are some of my fav's...

    "This land is min, this land is free. I do what I want and Irresponsibly..."

    "Daddy didn't give attention...ohh...to the fact that mummy didn't care..."

    "sometimes he sees a strange spot in the sky, a human being that was given to fly" I know it's jeff's amazing mind that created this one, but it's freaking awesome. Actually that whole song is full of gorgeous lines. another is

    "He floated back down cause he wanted to share the key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere."

    There are so many aren't there! I love Pearl Jam!!!!

    he didn't write low light - jeff did - anyway - it is a good line nonetheless.

    - "..and the barrel waits, trigger shakes, aimed right at my head..won't you help me..help me from myself.." SOLAT
  • I hate these threads, b/c there's no way I can pick out just a few great ones. He's brimming with them. And depending on my mood, they all mean something to me.

    Right now, I'm thinking of:

    Gorgeous was his saviour
    She's drowning in his wake
    Life is the riddle
    Of which we're caught in the middle.
    A couple of lucky ones
    Tangled up in too much love
    ~cowboy junkies
  • A lot!! I think that i can't take only one (or 25), but one of all is the final line from black:I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be the star in somebody else's sky why can't it be mine. When I heard(excuse me, it writes this way in past tense?) it and understand it for first time I thought: " What kind of bitch!!! Poor boy, if someone tell me something like this I'll never let him anyway!!!!!" It's very beautiful.
  • This is my first post ever... Hello all! I hope I do the forum justice with it!

    LittleSecrets read my mind, and how tough is it to follow the post right before me, but here goes (I apologize now if I mis-quote)

    - i wish i was the full moon shining off your camaro's hood

    And the one that has sat on my brain ever since I heard it:

    - I'm like an openning band for the sun (this is the one I hope I quted correctly)

    Welcome to the board Aband4theSun!!!!
    I love Tremor Christ so my favourite lines are from that:

    - I'll decide. Take the dive.
    Take my time, not my life.
    Wait for signs, believe in lies.
    To get by, it's divine.
