Corduroy Lyrics

by Pearl Jam

The waiting drove me mad
Youre finally here and Im a mess
I take your entrance back
Cant let you roam inside my head
I dont want to take what you can give
I would rather starve than eat your bread
I would rather run but I cant walk
Guess Ill lay alone just like before

I take the poor man's path I must refuse your test
push me and I will resist
This behaviours not unique
I dont want to hear from those who know
They can buy but cant put on my clothes
I dont want to limp for them to walk
Never would have known of me before
I dont want to be held In your debt
Ill pay it of in blood let, I be wed

Im already cut up an half dead
I'll end up alone like I began

Everything has chains absolutely nothings changed
Take my hand not my picture spill my tincture

I dont want to take what you can give
I would rather starve than eat your breast
All the things that others want for me
Cant buy what I want because its free
Cant buy what I want because its free
Cant be what you want because Im

I aint supposed to be just fun
To live and die let it be done
I figure Ill be dammed
All alone like I began
