Take your broken wings and fly When your head is hanging low, low, low And the tears, they keep falling Take your broken feet and run
With the world up on your shoulders Nowhere left to hide Keep your head up, carry on
It ain't no time to die, die Even though we suffer Come together, be brave Come together All God's children, come
'Round the mountain, all God's children run (All God's children run 'round the mountain, run)

Eddie Vedder often changes the words when he sings "Yellow Ledbetter." The basic story is about a guy whose brother dies in the first Gulf War. Apparently, bad news in the army is given in yellow envelopes.
