Severed Hand

This song is by Pearl Jam and appears on the album Pearl Jam (2006).

Big man stands behind an open door
Said, "Leave your lady on the cement floor."

Got some kicks, want to take a ride?
I said, yeah!
Take your pick, leave yourself behind
I said, yeah!

I've no fear but for falling down
So look out below I am falling now
Oh please understand, I just need my friend
A way, a way, a way home

Tried to walk, found a severed hand
Recognized it from the wedding band

Said it's okay, do you want some more?
I said, yeah!
You'll see dragons after three or four
I said, yeah!

Understand I'm not falling down
I said, look around, the rooms taller now
I can't close my eyes, 'cause I see the sound
In waves, in waves, lets me stay calm

If I don't lose control
Explore and not explode
A preternatural other plane
With the power to maintain

Like a tear in all we know
Once dissolved we are free to grow
What is human, what is more?
I'll answer this when I get home
