Pearl Jam - Given to Fly

Performed via sign language! This is one of my favorite Pearl Jam videos ever.

  


Lyrics:

He could’ve tuned in, tuned in But he tuned out
A bad time, nothing could save him
Alone in a corridor, waiting, locked out
He got up outta there, ran for hundreds of miles

He made it to the ocean, had a smoke in a tree
The wind rose up, set him down on his knee
A wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings, "Hey, look at him now"

Arms wide open with the sea as his floor
Oh, power, oh He's.. flying Whole… High.. wide, oh
He floated back down 'cause he wanted to share
His key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere

But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed
By faceless men, well, fuckers He still stands
And he still gives his love, he just gives it away
The love he receives is the love that is saved
And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky
A human being that was given to fly High.. flying

Oh, oh High.. flying Oh, oh He’s…flying Oh, oh
