World Wide Suicide Lyrics

I felt the earth on Monday
It moved beneath my feet
In the form of a morning paper
Laid out for me to see
Saw his face in a color picture
I recognized the name
Could not stop staring at the
Face I'd never see again

It's a shame to awake in a world of pain
What does it mean when
a war has taken over?
It's the same every day
In a hell man-made
What can be saved and
who will be there to hold her?

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

Medals on a wooden mantle
Next to a handsome face
That the President took for granted
Writing checks that others pay
And in all the madness
Thought become numb and naive
So much to talk about, there's
Nothing for to say

It's the same every day
And the wave won't break
Tell you to pray while
the devil's on their shoulder
Laying claim to the take that soldiers save
Does not equate and
The truth's already out there

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

Looking in the eyes of the fallen
You've got to know there's another
Another
Another
Another
Another

waaaaayyyyyyyyyyy

It's a shame to awake in a world of pain
What does it mean when
a war has taken over
It's the same every day
And the wave won't break
Tell you to pray while
the devil's on their shoulder

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

The whole world
World over
It's a World Wide Suicide

It's a stab at the present administration for making people who aren't well off (soldiers)...

Granted, I pretty much don't ever agree with Pearl Jam's politcal views, but I respect their opinion, and know when they write an asskicking song... and this it is,,, and asskicking song...

An error occured.

ok.... I definitely didn't finish the first half of my comment, because I am an idiot, but the song is basically bashing bush for forsaking soldiers lives and using them as pawns in a game motivated by power and greed in which he has recklessly intimated himself into,...

And like I said, I don't really ever agree with PJ's politics, but that don't matter, because this is a killer song...

An error occured.

I totally agree with N0 C0DE. I also don't always agree with pearl jam's political views. However, I can see where they are coming from and I also respect their opinion.
This song sounds so awesome and now I am sad because I have almost 2 more months to wait for the new album which is way too long to wait. Oh well, at least I have this and all of PJ's other songs to listen to until then.

An error occured.

Yep, I am definately agreeing with NO C0DE. However I do see things the same way that Pearl Jam is seeing them. Also it seems that Pearl Jam are realeasing bootlegs from the vault! So that should be enough to tide us over until the new album comes out May 2!

An error occured.

I couldn't be a bigger Pearl Jam fan, but I'm really not feeling this song. Hopefully it will grow on me and the album will be as amazing as I hope it will be.

This post is wayyy old, but hopefully you are feeling it now. It's about the best track of many on PJ's selftitled album. :)

An error occured.

great tune.... my favorite of theirs in a long ass time

An error occured.

Do the backing vocals bug anyone else too? Cracking song then definitely a grower.

An error occured.

But I hope the album is more like yield than binaural or riot act.

An error occured.

i liked riot act and think it was very underrated, but if this cd can be as good as any of there previous cds than i will be happy

An error occured.

i completely agree with pjs views on the piece of shit we call a president and i thnk that this expresses their views better than any other song

An error occured.
