Nothingman

Lyrics

Once divided...nothing left to subtract...
Some words when spoken...can't be taken back...
Walks on his own...with thoughts he can't help thinking...
Future's above...but in the past he's slow and sinking...

Why do the credits list Wilco dudes as the writers? This is a PJ original
Great song.
Pearl Jam @ 1:00 am

I feel like a Muffin.
Love this song!!
Fu*k yeah!
He who forgets will be destined to remember. Lyrical genius.
Most of Pearl Jam songs are so emotional that somehow you can relate to it. even though as a non native english speaker I can barely heard what Eddie says. There are limitless interpretati o n s of the lyrics

RIP Jay Bennett. This song is balls.
Wilco writers, Tweedy and those dudes were likely in high school when this was written, wow?!?!
Well done and so it is rare
"Some word that are spoken can't be taken back"
I curse the day I let it go
Some words that are spoken can't be takin back
I thought Eddie and Jeff wrote this song?

Thanks for this song and many others, Eddie and crew.
Pearl Jam in my opinion is the greatest band of all time. When I was younger back in the nineties it was the biggest struggle to see them live I was very lucky to see them twice live at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta and it was the greatest show or I should say concert I have ever seen. I guess you can say that I am a huge Pearl Jam fan and always will be.
This song is timeless

I swear he's saying 'Muffin Man'...
Its these songs that captured my imagination when I was an early teen, and maybe the heavy emotions of these songs that helped shaped me some as a person, moreso than a musician. I was always able to find truth in these type of songs and an appreciation for Eddie and Pearl Jam. Though I might not have had many situations that were similar to the stories told, I always felt I could somehow feel the emotions in the lyrics.
My absolute favorite Pearl Jam song
Pearl jam is so fricken good can't say enough I love em!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! !
THIS SONG IS THE S**T...IT GRABS MY FEELERS

I believe this song is about his biological Dad, Nothingman. 'She' is his mom, the bolt of lightning. Into the Sun after he died
THIS REALLY IS A GREAT SONG!
wow amazing
