Pearl Jam has been rocking out alternative music since the early 90s. We are in love with this song and thank the band for creating it. You can find the lyrics below. What Military-themed songs do you love?

 

How long must she stand Before the ground, it gives way

To an endless fall

She can feel this

War on her face

The stars on her pillow

She’s folding in darkness

Begging for slumber

I’m not blind

I can see it coming

Looks like lightning

In my child’s eye

I’m not frantic

I can feel it coming

Violently shakes

My body
Her son’s slanted

Always giving her

The sideways eye

The empty chair where dad sits

How loud can silence get?

And mom, she reassures

To contain him

But it’s becoming a lie
She tells herself

And anyone else

Father is risking

His life for our freedoms
I’m not blind

I can see it coming

Looks like lightning

In my child’s eye
I’m not frantic

I can feel it coming

Darling you’ll save me

If you save yourself
