Craft Your Pearl Jam: Day Three

Sirens
The second release of Pearl Jam's Lightening Bolt album is called Sirens. The song is a great representation of Eddie Vedders tremendous vocal range.  Rolling Stone had great things to say about it and I agree with its sentiment.

Take a listen and judge for yourself.




(If you'd like to sing a long, and I recommend you do, here are the lyrics):

Hear the sirens, hear the sirens

Hear the sirens, hear the circus so profound

I hear the sirens more and more in this here town

Let me catch my breath to breathe then reach across the bend



Just to know we’re safe, I am a grateful man

This light is pit, alive and I can see you clear

Oh, I could take your hand, and feel your breath

For feel that someday will be over

I pull you close, so much to lose



Knowing that nothing lasts forever

I didn’t care, before you were here

I danced in laughter, with the everafter

But all things change, let this remain

Hear the sirens covering distance in the night

The sound, echoing closer, will they come for me, next time?



For every choice, mistake I made, is not my plan

To see you in the arms of another man

And if you choose to stay, I’ll wait, I’ll understand

Oh,  it’s a fragile thing, this life we lead, if I think too much, I can’t get over

When by the graces, by which we live our lives with death over our shoulders

Want you to know, that should I go, I always loved you, held you high above too

I studied your face, the fear goes away.

It’s a fragile thing, this life we lead, if I think too much, I can’t get over

When by the graves, by which we live our lives with death over our shoulders

Want you to know, that should I go, I always loved you, held you high above too
I studied your face, the fear goes away, the fear goes away, the fear goes away.
