Neil Young & Pearl Jam I'm the Ocean Lyrics
I'm an accident. I was driving way too fast.
Couldn't stop though, so I let the moment last.
I'm for rolling; I'm for tossing in my sleep.
It's not guilt though; It's not the company I keep.
People my age, they don't do the things I do.
They go somewhere while I run away with you.
I got my friends, and I got my children too.
I got her love. She's got my love, too.
I can't hear you, but I feel the things you say.
I can't see you, but I see what's in my way.
Now I'm floating, 'cause I'm not tied to the ground.
Words I've spoken seem to leave a hollow sound.
On the long plain, see the rider in the night.
See the chieftain, see the braves in cool moonlight.
Who will love them when they take another life?
Who will hold them when they tremble for the knife?
Voicemail numbers on an old computer screen,
Rows of lovers parked forever in a dream.
Screaming sirens echoing across the bay
To the old boats from the city far away.
Homeless heroes walk the streets of their hometown.
Rows of zeros on a field that's turning brown.
They play baseball, they play football under lights.
They play card games, and we watch them every night
Need distraction, need romance and candlelight.
Need random violence, need entertainment tonight.
Need the evidence, want the testimony of
Expert witnesses on the brutal crimes of love.
I was too tired to see the news when I got home.
Pulled the curtain, fell into bed alone.
Started dreaming, saw the rider once again
In the doorway where she stood and watched for him.
I'm not present; I'm a drug that makes you dream.
I'm an Aerostar; I'm a Cutlass Supreme
In the wrong lane, trying to turn against the flow.
I'm the ocean; I'm the giant undertow.
I'm the ocean
