"Untitled" as written by and H. Jones....
She said to me, over the phone
She wanted to see other people
I thought, "well then, look around, they're everywhere"
Said that she was confused

I thought, "darling, join the club"
24 years old, mid-life crisis
Nowadays hits you when you're young
I hung up, she called back, I hung up again

The process had already started
At least it happened quick
I swear, I died inside that night
My friend, he called

I didn't mention a thing
The last thing he said was, "be sound"
Sound
I contemplated an awful thing, I hate to admit

I just thought those would be such appropriate last words
But I'm still here
And small
So small how could this struggle seem so big?

So big
While the palms in the breeze still blow green
And the waves in the sea still absolute blue
But the horror

Every single thing I see is a reminder of her
Never thought I'd curse the day I met her
And since she's gone and wouldn't hear
Who would care? what good would that do?

But I'm still here
So I imagine in a month or 12
I'll be somewhere having a drink
Laughing at a stupid joke

Or just another stupid thing
And I can see myself stopping short
Drifting out of the present
Sucked by the undertow and pulled out deep

And there I am, standing
Wet grass and white headstones all in rows
And in the distance there's one, off on its own
So I stop, kneel

My new home
And I picture a sober awakening, a re-entry into this little bar scene
Sip my drink til the ice hits my lip
Order another round

And that's it for now
Sorry
Never been too good at happy endings

    General CommentThis song is actually used as an intro to pearl jams song "MFC"...they usually play this song right before they play MFC live, sometimes they dont though. The song is a really slowed down version of MFC, and when they go into MFC they just speed it up, its really rad. This song is on Live On Two Legs, the live PJ recording from 98, check it out.

    General CommentI love this song. I've got the LOTL version which is different to this one. I take it as kind of an anti-love song. I don't mean a hate song, but a love song that ignores the usual melodramatic stuff and tells it like it is.

    General CommentI think they'd be the same versions, you just might have some of the lyrics messed up.
    Here's the lyrics:

    Got a car
    I got some gas
    Oh, let's get out of here
    Get out of here fast
    Oh, everyone's confused
    So I stay in my room
    If I go, I don't want to go alone
    I hope you get this message
    Oh, you're not home
    I could be there in 10 minutes or so
    Oh, I got my things
    We'll make it up as we go along
    Oh, with you, I could never be alone
    Never be alone.

    General CommentThis song is so so pretty. I always skipped it for so long. Then I started listening to it recently. It made me cry when I actually say down and listened to it.
    I think it's one of the sweetest songs I've ever heard.
    "Oh with you, I could never be alone"

    General CommentI thought this would be referring to the untitled track on Yield, which had no lyrics, buuut since people say it's the same song...

    Anyways, I want to contribute by commenting on how people think this is a "filler" track. Well, I would like to say that, when speaking of Pearl Jam, there are NO filler tracks, but rather "experimental transitional" tracks. ^^

    How can it simply be called filler if there is actual thought put into the writing of these tracks?

On their album Vitalogy there are plenty of numbers that are short, strange and seemingly pointless, but they aren't filler because if they weren't there, the album would sound completely different! Think about it!
