  • All the advantage this life's got on me, picture a cup in the middle of the sea

    To all suffering from anxiety, this song plays on so many emotions.

    The lyrics for "I Got Id" carry the theme of unrequited love. The lyrics describe an anxiety-ridden narrator and his or her goal of returning to a less controlled state.

    "I Got Id" Pearl Jam

    My lips are shaking, my nails are bit off
    Been a month since I heard myself talk
    All the advantage this life's got on me
    Picture a cup in the middle of the sea

    And I fight back in my mind
    Never lets me be right
    I got memories, I got shit
    So much it don't show

    I walked the line
    When you held me in that night
    I walked the line
    When you held my hand that night

    An empty shell seems so easy to crack
    Got all these questions don't know who I could even ask
    So I'll just lie alone and wait for the dream
    Where I'm not ugly and you're looking at me

    And I'll stay in a bed
    Oh, blues eyes, I've seen him
    If just once I could feel loved
    Oh, stare back at me

    But I walked the line
    When you held me in that night
    I walked the line
    When you held my hand that night
    I walked the line
    When you held me close that night
    I paid the price
    Never held you in real life
