Just the other day, I was talking to my brother, and he mentioned how he loves the second verse of Indifference, by Pearl Jam.
I will hold a candle till it burns up my arm
I’ll keep taking punches until their will grows tired.
So when we ourselves can’t verbalize the words that get us through the day, we turn to our poets, or musicians, and our lyricists to do it for us. Eddie always has been able to, and always wil have that power.
I will stare the sun down, until my eyes go blind.
I won’t change direction, I won’t change my mind.
This one’s for anyone who needs something to hold onto right now.
Pearl Jam – Indifference
