Pearl Jam - Leash Lyrics

troubled souls unite, we got ourselves tonight..
i am fuel, you are friends, we got the means to make amends
i am lost, i'm no guide, but i'm by your side
i am right by your side...
young lover i stand
it was their idea, i proved to be a man
take my fucking hand
it was their idea, i proved to be a man
will myself to find a home, a home within myself
we will find a way, we will find our place
drop the leash, drop the leash...
get outta' my fuckin' face
drop the leash, drop the leash...
get outta' my fuckin' face
drop the leash, drop the leash...
get outta' my fuckin' face
drop the leash, we are young
drop the leash, we are young
get outta' my fuckin' face...
drop the leash, drop the leash...
get outta' my, my...
delight, delight, delight in our youth...
get outta' my fuckin' face...

    I know people are going to hate on this and draw all kinds of conclusions about this no matter what I say. I can't stop anyone from calling me a snake or a spider, a snail, an endling, or an intruder. I do not care. Now, listen to me and listen closely. I don't. care. who. believes my motives for what I'm about to say right now are pure or purely selfish. No matter who you are, a boy, a girl, trans, gay, no matter what race you are, no matter where you come from DO NOT GIVE UP. EVER. DO YOU HEAR ME? You ARE NOT ALONE!!! STAND UP. IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER IF YOU LIVE OR DIE. Just DO NOT give up without a fight. STAND. STAND UP. FIGHT EXPLOITATION TO THE DEATH.

  15. Artur Czechowicz

    "I'm lost, I'm not guide, but I'm by your side" - I love this line. It's really simple, yet so profound and truly expressing love, friendship and the will to be there for someone.

    Wanted to blast the hell out of this when I was a kid, but I didn't think my parents would accept the liner notes as proof that the lyrics are actually "Get out of my 'lucky' face".

    Koops Cooper

  37. Michael Rainer

    I live my life by this song and is my personal credo:"Ahhhhhhh GET OUT OF MY FUCKIN' FACE." Every one should take this view, especially when it comes to the government. (NSA, please add this to my personal profile you have in Utah. Thanks.)

  54. Andrew Thomas

  57. Brooks Estrada

    Im lost Im no guide, but Im by your side!

  58. fido8667

    We are young!


    the solo at the end is the best ever (PJ included)

  60. Alec Parsons

    Drop the leash drop the leash get out my fuckin face!!!!

  61. deamon850

    the best song about rebellion

    Elias Meyer

    This and pretty much any rage against the machine song.

  62. Cata Aguilar

    I listen this and I think One Direction And Justin Bieber are the worst singers ever.

  63. Cata Aguilar

    And Green river or Melvins.

  64. John Bellows

    My Top Pearl Jam albums that are on my list are VS, Vitalogy, Ten, Pearl Jam and Yeild! There are others but I still need to listen to them! Which I am looking forward to! :D

  65. Samantha Sam

    TROUBLED SOULS UNITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Edward Maiden

    ten was the best grunge album ever

  67. Mason Puckett

    Their first two records you can definitely hear grunge. Trust me.

  68. iwannagosurfing139

    man I wish there were more bands like this now days. Maybe there are and I'm just not aware of it, but it seems to me that bands back then had something amazing to sing about as well as soul. Doesn't seem like that anymore.

  69. vengiameen

    i think FF are pretty popular ._.

  70. kerry kendrick

    eh idk man kinda just alternative to me

  71. 1nfinitysL1mit

    An AMAZING end to an incredible album. VS. was RIDICULOUS.

  72. MegaSlimes

    foo fighters isn't grunge


    MegaSlimes yeah they're more alternative pop. They're not bad but this is a million times better.

    Royland Owens

    MegaSlimes Damn, for some strange reason I agree

  73. M0RPED

    Your right except on the part of Foofighters, they are a great band but they aren't a grunge band, just saying.

  74. MrXtreme1234567

    i have this on my mp3

  75. drummerboy231434

    For some reason whenever I listen to the lyrics of this song, I picture a group of fed up kids going around on a riot, and rescuing more kids to join their rebellion along the way.


    drummerboy231434 that's what I picture when I hear 1979 by the smashing pumpkins

  76. Led Back

    yeah no that makes sense, but even though it was at the end one of the *creators of grunge was in a band, so it didn't completely end when the first album came out, but would have made more sense to name alice in chains instead i suppose

  77. mikey41rules

    Yeh but the band was created at the death of the grunge era, their style is totally different than any of the other bands he listed. I thought it was just weird to name the fathers of grunge and then throw in foo fighters instead of like alice in chains or screaming trees.

    Joshua King

    mikey41rules ya foo fighters is from after the grunge era. They def have a similar sound to grunge but i wouldnt classify them as that

    Annie REILY

    This band was not created at the death of grunge . Do the math .

  78. Led Back

    what do you fighters exploded in the 90's....there first album is practically grunge

  79. drummerboy231434

    Know ur pain. Hate when everyone at my school talks about the music they like and like the artists they listen to are so talented and write such meaningful songs.

  80. mikey41rules

    did you just put foo fighters on that list...really....

  81. outlawcountryman

    lol i bought this on cassette three days ago and listened to it.

  82. MrXtreme1234567

    drop the leash get of my fuckin face

  83. MrXtreme1234567

    get out of my fukin face

  84. Paul Bickle

    Oh, get outta' my fuckin' face... Love it.

  85. Busta

    I bought this on cassette many moons ago and forget to listen to it for that reason. Just yesterday downloaded onto my nano and think I'm gonna have to budget for getting everything else in this format on it too.
    I love this album, it has stood up to the test of time and is a classic!

  86. Richy Yates

    Even if the kid is 12, you can't spell for shit.

  87. TheNumberOneGuyDude

    what the hell does that even mean?

  88. Marc-Olivier Gingras


  89. cblakes2015

    Same here lol Ron Paul sucks ass

  90. Rob Davies

    please thumbs down this comment

  91. AwareWulf

    thankyou , finally someone , and might i admire ur name :)

  92. fgsltwhghobstwbihsnp

    You're welcome. My comment was a joke anyway - I don't even like Ron Paul and it would be an embarrassment for him to have music like this. And yes I know where Pearl Jam was in the early 90s. I was buying all their albums.

  93. em71383n

    @TheWanderingSkeleton Pearl Jam forever!

  94. doctorshifty83

    Because of all the 'F' words in this song, I'm surprised this album never got a Parental Advisory logo, and to think I was 14 when I bought this album, my mom was there with me! I dont care, cause it's one of my favorites off of Vs...Its cool cause in the lyrics sheet of the CD cover, it goes "It was their idea 'told me to get her pregnant'" which basically reiderated to "...I prove to be a man." as the final result. I'm just saying, gives you an idea of what the lyrics originally mean.
