Sliding out of reverse into drive.
This wheel will be turning right, then straight.
Off in the sunset she'll ride.

She can remember a time, denied.
Stood by the side of the road.
Spilled like wine now.
She's out on her own and line high.

There's no leaving here.
Ask I'm an ear.
She's disappeared now.

They said that timing was everything.
Made him want to be everywhere.
There's a lot to be said for nowhere.

There's no leaving here.
Ask I'm an ear.
He's disappeared now.
There's no leaving here.
Ask I'm an ear.
Fuck it. We'll disappear now.

    General CommentMFC stands for Mini Fast Car. It was written when Pearl Jam was touring in Europe and Eddie couldn't believe how small but fast the cars were in Europe.

    General Commenton the dvd "single video theory", which by the way is awesome, its basically the recording sessions of the album "yield", eddie says this about the song. "obviously this song is when your in a car and just trying to get the fuck out of a bad situation". great song, and pretty easy to play on the guitar.

    General CommentMatzy94, your explanation is new to me. I really didnt had idea what does MFC stands for. But, who does Ed refer to when he said "she can remember..." or "she´s out..."?

    General CommentA very catchy tune
    I think it's kind of like Rearviewmirror
    just getting out of there! A great driving song for the car
    One of the "few good Yield song" though?
    C'mon, Yield is one of their top 3 albums!
    Awesome album

    My OpinionI only have four albums but I find it kind of funny there's a song about cars/driving away on each of them (well, maybe not on Ten. Haven't listened to that one in a while). Guess it's a popular thought in Vedder's mind.

    General CommentI'm new to Pearl Jam and dreamt that I looked up this song in Youtube... Didn't even know what MFC stood for. Find out now it's about driving and that it was written in Europe.

    I live in Europe.
    I am currently learning how to drive and i've been really stressed about wether i'm gonna make it.

    So weird. But I take this as a sign I will indeed make it and drive around myself soon...
