Song of the Day: Rearviewmirror by Pearl Jam *National Domestic Violence Awareness Month*

Rearviewmirror

I took a drive today
Time to emancipate
I guess it was the beatings made me wise
But I’m not about to give thanks, or apologize
I couldn’t breathe, holdin’ me down
Hand on my face, pushed to the ground
Enmity gagged, united by fear
Forced to endure what I could not forgive

I seem to look away
Wounds in the mirror waved
It wasn’t my surface most defiled
Head at your feet, fool to your crown
Pissed on my plate, swallowed it down
Enmity gagged, united by fear
Tried to endure what I could not forgive

Saw things
Clearer
Once you, were in my rearviewmirror

I gather speed from you fucking with me
Once and for all I’m far away
I hardly believe, finally the shades, are raised, hey

Saw things so much clearer
Once you, once you
Rearviewmirror

Saw things so much clearer
Once you, oh yeah
