got all night
plenty of time
take these chains
from my eyes
so alive
gettin 'it prime
take 'em there
before you die
why be satisfied
we've got all night
please be here
top of the stairs
no place for
the president
build some fears
left outside
fuck, be content
to just get by
why be satisfied
we've got all night
you scream and wail
you see who cares
scream and wail
see who cares
life has nothin' to do with
killin' time
so why be satisfied
we've got... all night
we've got all night
we've got all night

    General CommentThis song is one of pearl jam's most awkward songs.. but awkward in a good way.... it was basically Jack's unique style and the band still programmed to the drumming of Abbruzzese....

    The result was this song.....

    This song is about doing things in life instead of uhmmm not doing things.... like me right now..... I am in college and COULD be writing a large essay for extra credit but instead I am jumping on writing a comment for a good song that no one has yet to comment on....

    You know why be satisfied with what you got you got all night to get more..... hmmm also possesses sexual overtones.... completely unheard of from pearl jam ;)

    General CommentI really like this song to. its one of those songs that show you the artist/s performing them arent conventional main streem, but are willing to try different directions and play whatevers on their mind, anyway they chose to go.
    I really respect Pearl Jam for that.
    Besides, theres something really sexually stimulating about this song...
    I dont know... maybe its just me ...

    General CommentNo Code, this song DOES get awkward, at least at the end, where the song falters. I don't know, they just repeated the chorus one too many times and the breathing heavily gets weird. The first half of the song is good, however.

    General CommentI think this is a song about making love, with Eddie Vedder smiling demurrly: "it's okay, we've got all night..."

    General CommentThis song just may have been a precurser to songs like "Arc"...To bad it was an outtake.
