World Wide Suicide

Album: Pearl Jam (2006)
Charted: 41
  • I felt the earth on Monday
    It moved beneath my feet
    In the form of a morning paper
    Laid out for me to see
    Saw his face in a corner picture
    I recognized the name
    Could not stop staring at the
    Face I'd never see again

    It's a shame to awake in a world of pain
    What does it mean when
    A war has taken over?
    It's the same every day
    I heard my name
    What can be saved and
    Who will be left to hold her?

    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide
    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide

    Medals on a wooden mantle
    Next to a handsome face
    That the president took for granted
    Writing checks the whole world pays
    And in all the madness
    Thought becomes numb and naive
    Too much to talk about
    And nothing for to say

    It's the same every day
    And the wave won't break
    Tell you to pray while
    The devil's on his shoulder
    Laying claim to the take
    That our soldiers save
    Does not equate, and
    The truth's already out there

    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide
    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide

    Looking in the eyes of the fallen
    You've got to know there's another
    Another
    Another
    Another
    Another

    Way

    It's a shame to awake in a world of pain
    What does it mean when
    The war has taken over
    It's the same every day
    And the wave won't break
    Tell you to pray while
    The devil's on his shoulder

    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide

    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide

    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide

    The whole world
    World over
    It's a world wide suicide Writer/s: EDDIE VEDDER
