Let's get lyrical, lyrical: Pearl Jam - Nothingman

Once divided
Nothing left to subtract

Some words when spoken
Can't be taken back

Walks on his own
With thoughts he can't help thinking

Future's above
But in the past he's slow and sinking

Caught a bolt 'a lightnin'
Cursed the day he let it go


Nothingman ...
Isn't it something?
Nothingman ...

She once believed in every story he had to tell
One day she stiffened, took the other side
Empty stares from each corner of a shared prison cell
One just escapes, one's left inside the well
And he who forgets will be destined to remember

Nothingman ...
Isn't it something?
Nothingman ...

Oh, she don't want him
Oh, she won't feed him after he's flown away
Oh, into the sun, ah, into the sun
Burn ... burn

Nothingman ...
Isn't it something?
Nothingman ...
Nothingman ...
Could've been something
Nothingman ...

Nopes, looks like Vedder hasn't quite lightened up yet. Let's have a joke to keep things loftier then.

Nothingman met Somethingman one day and said, 'Dude, you're like so full of it.'

Full of it, you know as in something? Get it? Get it? Man I am good. If you did not laugh or get this then my friend, I am sorry to announce that, below not being as awesome as me or Jackie Chan, you have no sense of humor. Go practice a few spinning back kicks and come back and see me.

Cool concept for a blog dudes (either ya'll are brilliant or I don't read that many blogs, haha). Either way, I think it's a great change of pace...keep the reviews up.

Eddie Vedder is so not light. He's so lacking in lightness that he makes my head hurt.

Great site. I'm spinning a new site, A Free Man, out of my personal blog and am hoping to meet some like minded music bloggers. If you have the chance, take a look at my site and if you like it perhaps we could exchange blog roll listings.

All the best,

Chris
