Let The Records Play

This song is by Pearl Jam and appears on the album Lightning Bolt (2013).

When the kingdom comes
He puts his records on
And with his blistered thumb hits play

And with the volume up
He goes and fills his cup
And lets the drummer's drum take away the pain
The pain

Breaking, forsaken
What's that you're taking?
Aaw, needing the feeling
He lets the records play

Should the future dim
A cigarette lights hymn
Vaporized a green light grin

And when the shotglass talks
He knows to listen up
Until he's nice and numb again
Again, again

Shakened, awakened
Not one for faking
The kneeling, his healing
He lets the records play
There's wisdom in his ways

I been down and I fell so hard and far from grace
I been hurt and I still recall the flaws on her face
I been off, but I'm on, up above my feet, my feet again

Eh
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

Shaken, foresaken
What's that your taking?
Aaw, needing the feeling
He lets the records play

Shakened, awakened
Not one for faking
The kneeling, his healing
He lets the records play
Oh, there's wisdom in his ways

Ow
Get on with it, boy
Faster, little faster
