  • Joshua from Usathis song is so weird
  • Victor Eduardo Rodrigues Santos from ItabiraIt seems to talk about rape
  • Christopher from Atlanta, GeorgiaI love this song. Slightly distorted, cacophony of sound that gradually floods your brain, and builds to a finale where the heroine contemplates and ultimately acknowledges she would end her life.

    The song fascinated me, I’ve listened to it countless time, and still love it just as much.
  • Bill from Pierce , IdI never thought much of this song until I listened to it while reading along with the printed lyrics to it, then it actually took on a more cohesive flow that made it much more listenable.
  • Brendan from Altamont, NyThis song is also known as "Hey Foxymophandlemama, That's Me". My least favorite song by Pearl Jam but still interesting.
