"Severed Hand" lyrics - PEARL JAM

"Severed Hand"

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
