One bended knee is no way to be free
LIfting up an empty cup i ask silently
that all my destinations will accept the one that's me
so i can breathe -.

Circles they grow & they swallow people whole
half their lives they say goodnight to wives theyll never know
got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul
and so it goes -.

Don't come closer or I'll have to go -.
owning me like gravity are places that pull
If ever there was someone to keep me at home
it would be you-.

Everyone i come across in cages they gought
They think of me & my wandering but im never what they thought
got my indignation but im pure in all my thought
I'm alive.

Wind in my hair i feel part of everywhere
underneath my being is a road that disappeared
late at night i hear the tress, they're singing with the dead

Leave it to me as i find a way to be
consider me a satellite forever orbiting
I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me

    General Commentthis is from the "Into the Wild" soundtrack. if you've not heard the album, watch the movie, hear the songs throughout. it really made me appreciate the cd a lot more. i wasn't all that impressed til i saw the movie. the songs are pretty different than most pj albums, in that they are all pretty literal and self explanatory. great movie, even better swoundtrack

    General CommentDuring his solo tour when he played in Berkely CA. he mentions that while watching some 80's TV show he notices Ghostbusters actually won a grammy. Then he goes on to say "that song I just played (Guaranteed) is not as good as Ghostbusters". Priceless! Really puts into perspective just how much or how little weight should be placed on awards of any kind where head to head competition is not involved IMO. You no longer need to wonder why artists like Vedder don't hold these honors with high regard. Best song on the album.
