Vedder Tuesday ⅩⅩⅥ: Down

Missed a week.  Maybe back on track.

You have no clue how hard it was to pick a song like this today.


Fell by the wayside
No getting out

Cry me a river
Dried up and damned

The names can be changed
But the place is still the same

I am loaded, told that all's for naught
Holds me down

Life is in motion
I’m stuck in line

You can't be neutral
On a moving train

One day the symptoms fade
Think I'll throw these fucking pills away

And if hope could grow from dirt like me
It can be done

Won't let the light escape from me!
Won't let the darkness swallow me!

Fuck Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Fuck him, fuck everything he stands for, and fuck the Hummer he rode in.  But I won't let the darkness swallow me.  I'll make it through this year if it kills me.

All Vedder Tuesday
