Pearl Jam
Live On Two Legs
The waiting drove me mad.
You're finally here and I'm a mess.
I take your entrance back.
Can't let you roam inside my head.

I don't want to take what you can give.
I would rather starve than eat your bread.
I would rather run but I can't walk.
Guess I'll lie alone just like before.

I'll take the varmints path.
Oh, and I must refuse your test.
Push me and I will resist.
This behavior's not unique.

I don't want to hear from those who know.
They can buy but can't put on my clothes.
I don't want to limp for them to walk.
Never would have known of me before.
I don't want to be held in their debt.
I'll pay it off in blood let I be wed.
I'm already cut up and half dead.
We'll end up alone like we began.

Everything has chains. Absolutely nothing's changed.
Take my hand, not my picture, spilled my teacher.

I don't want to take what you can give.
I would rather starve than eat your breast.
All the things that others want for me.
Can't buy what I want because it's free. (x2)
Can't be what they want because I...

It's susposed to be just fun.
Yea, but to be tried or be a judge.
I figure I'll be damned. All alone like I began.
