Whale Song
by Pearl Jam



The sun was in clouds, the sun looked out
Exposed a trail of mist and spouts
Ships followed the ancient lead
Deceiving friends under the sea

Wow, imagine that? They wont fight back
I got a theory on that
A whale's heart is as big as a car
A whaler's thought must be smudged by the dark

They wont fight back, I'm sure they know how
Means they love or are too proud
They wont fight back, I'm sure they know how
Means they love or are too proud
They swim, it's really free
It's a beautiful thing to see, they sing

Hunters of land, hunters of sea exploit anything for money
I refer to anybody that takes advantage of what that is free
They wont fight back
It's only a thought that makes it seem right
What you dont see is because of your sight
Take what you want, kill what you can
That's just one way from the mind of man
Take their lives, sell their parts but there is no taking of their hearts

If I was lost at sea, that harpoon boat in front of me
It's the whale I'd like to be
They wont fight back, they wont fight back, they wont fight back
They wont fight back, they wont fight back, they dont know how
They wont fight back, they wont fight back, they wont fight back
