Ok..here's what I am doing. Currently I am 24 hrs into this little project...
I have copied EVERY LYRIC from EVERY STUDIO LP released by Pearl Jam.
Now...
I started with TEN, released in Aug, 1991....
I have CREATED 8 catagories...

1) Government-Law-War.
2) Religion (finding out very similar to G-L-W#1)
3) Media
4) Love-Beauty-Soulmate
5) Lost Love-Goodbyes-Will be missed
6) Unknown-Fear-Darkness
7) Abusive- Bad relationships
8) Parenting- it's Ups & downs...

Like I said, I just completed the TEN album...
I am TAKING EVERY word, a verse, maybe 2 verses, and placing them into one of the above mentioned catagories...
I listen, and place....
I am TRYING NOT TO REPEAT, a word or verse, once its placed, but like I said, 1 and 2 are close, and some I may just for the effect....

SO below, I am going to paste my first example of words & lyrics, Using catagory 7) Abusive-Bad relationships....so you have an idea of what the hell I'm doing.....

I'm really enjoying this...
in the end, all LP's and EVERY WORD will be placed in a catagory and that truly will be something else...I think....

see if you can relate a verse or verses with what song....
remember I have just completed TEN....
as i said, all words are placed in different groups....
so if you say to yourself, "thats not the entire verse" it may not fit in this specific group below....
and if you want me to email you the entire project when completed...email me your email address......

Abuse - Bad relationships

backstreet love on the side of the road....
treated..
try an mimic what's insane...
i am in it where do I stand..?
Indian summer and I hate the heat...
got a backstreet lover...
in the passenger seat....
who you thought was your daddy...
sorry you didnt see him...
she walks slowly...
across a young mans room...
i cant remember anything to this very day....
cept the look...the look..
is there something wrong..?
you're still alive....
do i deserve to be...
is that the question...
if so..
garden of stone...
she scratches a letter...
into a wall...made of stone....
won't feel as alone...
as she does...
since they put her in this place...
why go home...
why go on...
she could just pretend...
join the game...
could be another clone...
what you taught me...
put me here...
sets of days....
dark grin...
looks insane...
some day yet...
she'll begin her life again...
him away...him away....yeah!
on the edge...
windowsill....street below...
feeling quite superior...
he sinks the burning knife deep...
now the air I tasted and breathed...
has taken a turn...
my bitter hands..
twisted thoughts that spin...
round my head..
i'm spinning....
love gone bad...
turned world to black....
would you hit me....
aint indicative of my place...
left my porch..
(lie) beside me...
ever hold...never again...
mommy didnt care....
bit a recess ladies breast..
hit me...
jaw left hurtn....
mommy wouldn't wear.....
try to forget this...
try to erase this...
feel the chill....
can you see me know?
i'll hold the pain....
visiting...the man above her...
in to deep...
she aint nothing...
she doesnt like the view...
Listened since day one when "Ten" was released in 1991...and haven't stopped....

  • why are you doing this?


    Because I dont sleep much, and usually when I get up at 3am, there isnt much to do....the gym doesnt open until 5:30am, and my employees dont show up for work until 7am...and because I can.....and want to....

    so why not break down every word/verse and place it in a catagory.....then read each catagory, and see how it comes out.....

    sure i do, but i've enjoyed doing this so far.... I have plenty of spare time, and just time in general..... it's pretty easily done...
    all you do is read a phrase, verse a word, and ask yourself, what does it mean to you....

    And I'm not living this life without you, I'm selfish and clear
    And you're not leaving here without me, I don't wanna be without
    My best... friend. Wake up, to see you could have it all
  • What makes "if so" go into the abuse category? I can see the point of doing whole lines but I don't go how you can categorize simple phrases.

    I drink prob. 3 or 4 beers a day and usually about 30 ounces of Coffee a day..

    Smoke a pack and a half...

    Wake up at 1045 for an 11 oclock class.. Is this exposing myself to to much sunlight?

    Don't excercise..

    I don't know what my iron level is..

  • I don't get it. I looked at this and your other post about "love lyrics" from Ten, and it just doesn't make sense. I sort of understand what you're trying to do here, but most of the lines you used don't really fit the category in any way I can see, and some of your lyrics are just flat-out wrong (got a backstreet lover, who you thought was your daddy, is there something wrong, she could just pretend) to name a few.

    I don't mean to be a Negative Nelly, but if you have all this spare time, should't you be reading some of the great works of our time, or writing something original, or at the very least, masturbating?

    I agree. I think it is insane, but if you are going to do it why break down the lines? Just group the songs into the different categoties.

    Curly Joe, is so right that you should read some good books since you have so much time. I wish I had that kind of time. I read 27 books so far this year and hope to break 30 by year's end. I would have read 150 if I had the kind of time you are talking about!
