“Corduroy” by Pearl Jam

All the things that others want for me. Can’t buy what I want because it’s free.”

I’ll take the poor man’s path
Oh, and I must refuse your test
A-push me and I will resist
This behavior’s not unique

I don’t want to hear from those who know
They can buy but can’t put on my clothes
I don’t want to wait for them to walk
Never would have known of me before

I don’t want to be held in your debt
I’ll pay it off in blood let I be wed
I’m already cut up and half dead
I’ll end up alone like I began

Everything has chains
Absolutely nothing’s changed
Take my hand, not my picture
Spilled my tincture

I don’t want to take what you can give
I would rather starve than eat your bread
All the things that others want for me
Can’t buy what I want because it’s free
Can’t buy what I want because it’s free
Can’t be what you want because I…

Why ain’t it supposed to be just fun?
To live and die let it be done
I figure I’ll be damned
All alone like I began

It’s your move now
I thought you were a friend but I guess I…
I guess I hate you

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
