"Trouble" as written by Stone C. Gossard and Christopher J. Cornell....
When the spoon is hot
And the needles sharp
And you drift away
I can hear you say
That the world in black
Is upon your back
And your body shakes
So you ditch away
And you close the shades

Don't try to do it
Don't try to kill your time
You might do it
Then you cant change your mind
You've got a hold on to your time
Till your break through these
Times of trouble

When you try to talk
And the words get hard
And they put you down
Don't you stay
Don't you ditch away

I saw you swinging
Swinging your mothers sword
I know you're playing but
Sometimes the rules get hard
But if somebody left you out on a ledge
If somebody pushed you over the edge
If somebody loved you and left you for dead
You got to hold on to your time till you break
Through these times of trouble

    Song MeaningThis song is about a man going to the Seattle Green 34th Street Bar & Cafe. A lot of people go there to drown their sorrows with drinks "trouble, oh trouble set me free".

    The man feels a victim of the woman at the counter, as suggested by the line "I have drunk your wine, you have made your world mine".

    Seattle Green Street Bar & Cafe is often known as a place where people fight in their spare time. The man is only there for a quick drink "I don't wannta fight and I haven't got a lot of time".
