Pearl Jam: Even Flow - Explained!

Just a song that popped into my head and wouldn't go away. One of the few rock albums back then that crept into my rap and r&b collection. Later I realized I had a much larger interest in music. This is one of the songs that helped me realize that. This is pretty hardcore compared to what's out there now. Weird knowing what it means after years of having no idea.


Lyrics for: Even Flow

Freezin', rests his head on a pillow made of concrete, again
Oh, feelin' maybe he'll see a little better set of days, ooh yeah
Oh, hand out, faces that he sees time again ain't that familiar, ooh yeah
Oh, dark grin, he can't help, when he's happy looks insane, oh yeah

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away, yeah...ooh...
Oh, someday yet, he'll begin his life again...life again...life again...

Kneelin', looking through the paper though he doesn't know to read, ooh yeah
Oh, prayin', now to something that has never showed him anything
Oh, feelin', understands the weather of the winters on its way
Oh, ceilings, few and far between all the legal halls of shame, yeah...

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away, yeah...
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again
Oh, whispering hands, gently lead, lead him away...him away, him away...
Yeah! woo...ah yeah...fuck it up...

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away...
Ooh, someday yet, he'll begin his life again, yeah
Oh, whispering hands, gently lead, lead him away...him away...him away...
Yeah! woo...uh huh...yeah, yeah, mommy, mommy...

Homeless


Many think that Even Flow is about being homeless. The "Even Flow" is how thoughts come in and out of his head evenly because he can't cope with the situation.  Someday, yet, he'll begin his life again is probably about someone who cant' cope with their situation or is unsatisfied with themselves.
