Pearl Jam – Sirens Lyrics 5 years ago
Just created an account to comment about this song.

For me the Sirens represent death itself, even though it's usually realated to death in practice (ambulance, police).

Life is so fragile...who can say that death (sirens) are not coming for you this time? Like being hit by a bus while crossing the street, fall while taking a bath...and all this "silly" deaths that happens everyday with healthy young men and women..

And because of that fragility, that is determined by faith, God, or whatever, he's sending a message to his lover, that "I do love you, and because of you life was good, being around you made it worth it...and I better say it to you right now, because you never know if tomorrow I'll be here to have the chance to say it".

"It's a fragile thing this life we lead, if I think too much, I can get over
Whelmed by the grace, by which we live our lives with death over our shoulders"

It's just a perfect summary of what i constantly think about in life - i could be the one hit by a bus tomorrow, and i won't be able to accomplish everything i want, it'll be game over in the middle of the game, and that scares the shit out of me, but at the same time that does not stop from being happy, loving, enjoying life.
