"Immortality (Pearl Jam cover)" as written by and Eddie Vedder David Abbruzzese....
Vacate is a word
Vengeance has no place so near to her
Cannot find a comfort
In this world

Artificial tears
The vessel's stabbed
Next up, volunteers
Vulnerable, wisdom can't adhere

A truant finds home
And a will to hold on
There's a trapdoor in the sun
It's immortality

As privileged as a whore
Victims in demand for public show
Swept out through the cracks
Beneath the door

Holier than thou, how?
Surrendered, executed anyhow
Scrawls dissolved
Cigar box on the floor

A truant finds home
And a will to hold on to
There's a trapdoor in the sun

It's immortality

I cannot stop the thought
Running out the door
Coming up a which way sign
And all good truants must decide

Oh, stripped and sold, mom
And an auctioned forearm
And whiskers in the sink

A truant finds home
And a will to hold on to
Some die just to live, oh

    General Commentreally a great cover...as best as i've heard in awhile..

    i don't personally think this song is JUST about cobain..maybe a little bit but not entirely...this song was written before cobain died, then they lyrics were changed after he died...so...think whatever

    but great great job by seether...

    General Commenti think pearl jam is one of seether's favorite bands. not only for their uniqueness, but for their style. i hav read/heard in several interviews, including the One Cold Night bonus DVD, that they think of pearl jam as one of rock's greatest inovaters.

    i just love how on the One Cold Night album how much Shaun sounded like Eddie Vedder. i have been a fan of both pearl jam and seether, so when i bought this album and played it, i was supprised to see this cover on it. its amazing

    btw, i am the one who posted the lyrics.

    General CommentI absolutely adore, adore, adore this song!! I couldn't love it more! Best cover from any band I've heard since 2003. All the good covers have come from bands like PJ, Nirvana, Staind, APC/Tool, The Cranberries, etc. So, it's been a while since I've heard something this wonderful!!
    I would say that it's about how things happen to kids/teenagers, and the adults around them ignore it.
    There's children being abused and neglected, committing suicide, and doing drugs...just losing themselves and getting lost in the crowd, and noone is doing anything to stop it. It's about how we're all to caught up in our own selfish pursuits to look around and outside of ourselves to help each other like we're meant to do.

    General Commentthe one way i see this song definitively being about cobain, is the cigar box, because when cobain was found he kept his needles in a cigar box.
