I'm The Ocean - Pearl Jam feat Neil Young

I'm an accident, I was driving way too fast
Couldn't stop though, so I let the moment last
I'm for rollin', I'm for tossin' in my sleep
It's not guilt though, it's not the company I keep.

People my age, they don't do the things I do
They go somewhere, while I run away with you
I got my friends, and I got my children too
I got her love, she's got my love too.

I can't hear you, but I feel the things you say
I can't see you, but I know what's in my way
Now I'm floatin' 'cause I'm not tied to the ground
Words I've spoken seem to leave a hollow sound.

On the long plain, see the rider in the night
See the chieftain, see the braves in cool moonlight
Who will love them when they take another life
Who will hold them when they tremble from the knife.

Voicemail numbers on an old computer screen
Rows of lovers parked forever in a dream
Screaming sirens echoing across the bay
To the old boats, from the city far away.

Homeless heroes walk the streets of their own town
Rows of zeroes on a field that's turning brown
The play baseball, they play football under lights
They play card games and wew watch them every night.

Need distraction, need romance and candlelight
Need random violence, need Entertainment Tonight
Need the evidence, want the testimony of
Expert witnesses on the brutal crimes of love.

I was too tired to see the news when I got home
Puzzled the curtain, fell into bed alone
Started dreaming, saw the rider once again
In the doorway where she stood and watched for him, watched for him.

I'm not present, I'm the drug that makes you dream
I'm an Aerostar, I'm a Cutlass Supreme
In the wrong lane, trying to turn against the flow
I'm the ocean, I'm the giant undertow
I'm the ocean, I'm the ocean, I'm the giant undertow
I'm the ocean, I'm the giant undertow
I'm the ocean (6x)
