    Who you are is one of the greatest PJ songs in the catalog. From the time I heard the first notes, I loved it. It's one that I hope to hear every show that I go to.
  • don't you mean the song You Are from Riot Act, i'm pretty sure that's the one you're thinkin of
    If anyone has any good ideas for band names PM me cause me and my band are amazingly stuck for ideas. Darn that band Pearl Jam for having such a cool name

    I absolutely love this song...always have....No Code is my divine savior album with my growing up years....very underappreciated, great to see it was recognized on their greatest hits.

    the first time I listened to No Code I listened to Who You Are at least 10 times before going on to In My Tree....Good call on this thread, I think its a sin that song doesnt get more love.

    This song is in my top three- it is simply lovely, and the tempo and melody are a departure from more standard fare. Great vocal, great mood.

    theres a fabulous live version of this on http://www.theskyiscrape.com as well.

    its a zinn song i believe.. something to meditate to. people rave about Jack's in my tree beat and forget this one.. definetly one of my favorites. nice simple little messages put into the chant too. Who are we?. . Who we are.
    Come on pilgrim you know he loves you..

  • I wish they repeated "just a little time before we leave" part. that's the most beautiful part of the song in my opinion.
    everything has chains
    absolutely nothing's changed
    take my hand, not my picture
    spilled my tincture...
  • Come to send
    Not condescend
    Transcendental consequence
    Is to transcend, where we are
    Who are we? Who we are

    Trampled moss on your souls
    Changes all, you're a part
    Seen it all, not at all
    Can't defend, fuck the man

    Take me for a ride, Before we leave

    Circumstance
    Clappin' hands
    Guidin' winds
    Happenstance
    Off the track, in the mud
    That's the moss, in the aforementioned verse

    Just a little time, Before we leave

    Stop light plays its part
    So I would say you've got a heart
    What's your part? Who you are
    You are who, who you are


    Sorry, but I just had to post the lyrics
    Life reveals what is dealt through seasons
    Circle comes around each time

    One of PJ's most uplifting, self appreciation songs.
    I love it.
    This is the song I turn to whenever I feel down on myself.
    It brings me right back to loving who I am.

    I’ve always loved this song, particularly Jack Irons drumming. On Sirius/XM today I heard that JI heard a Max Roach track and was blown away by it. He said he was always practicing and although he couldn’t do Max Roach, he came up with his own thing. He was playing it and then Stone sat down and started noodling on the guitar. Thus, the birth of the song. 

    Very cool hearing this story. As a huge Mac Roach fan, this makes me somehow love this song even more. Was lucky enough to see it live twice in 2014 (Amsterdam and Moline).  Being this one back for Denver!
