"Not for You" as written by and Eddie Vedder David Abbruzzese....
Restless soul, enjoy your youth
Like Muhammad hits the truth
Can't escape from the common rule
If you hate something, don't you do it, too

Small my table, sits just two
Got so crowded, I can't make room
Oh, where did they come from?
Stormed my room
And you dare say it belongs to you, to you

This is not for you
This is not for you
This is not for you
Oh, not for you ah, you

Scream my friends don't call me
Friends, they don't scream
My friends don't call my friends don't

All that's sacred comes from youth
Dedications, naive and true
With no power, nothing to do
I still remember, why don't you?
Don't you

This is not for you
This is not for you
This is not for you
Oh, never was for you, fuck you
This is not for you
Oh, this is not for you yeah, you
This is not for you
Oh, not for you
Oh, you

    General CommentI think benplace and dimitri are right.....
    as it says here: db.etree.org/shn/…
    Ed said the song is directed towards ".....someone who thinks they're more important than the people making the music; the people listening to the music; or the music itself. And this is just a reminder that they're not."
