Pearl Jam Album: Yield Released February 3, 1998
"Given To Fly"
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 me 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
