  1. pearl jam'in 1993'tek çıkan ikinci albümü olan vs. 'de yer alan şarkı. yaratıcılığın, kendini gerçekleştirmenin önüne geçenlere bir ironi.

    alone listless breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
    young girl, violence center of her own attention
    the mother reads aloud, child, tries to understand it
    tries to make her proud
    the shades go down, into her head
    painted room, can't deny there's something wrong

    don't call me daughter, not fit to
    the picture kept will remind me
    don't call me daughter, not fit to
    the picture kept will remind me
    don't call me

    she holds the hand that holds her down
    she will rise above

    don't call me daughter, not fit to
    the picture kept will remind me
    don't call me daughter, not fit to be
    the picture kept will remind me

    don't call me daughter, not fit to
    the picture kept will remind me
    don't call me daughter, not fit to
    the picture kept will remind me
    don't call me

    the shades go down
    the shades go down
    the shades go down
    the shades go down

    i see a girl of the night
    with a baby in her hand
    under an old street light
    oh, next to a garbage can

    now she's put her kid away
    she's going to get a hit
    she hates her life
    and what she's done with it

    that's one more kid
    that'll never go to school
    never get to fall in love
    never get to be cool

    that's one more kid
    that'll never go to school
    never get to fall in love
    never get to be cool

    he won the lottery
    when he was born
    a big hand slapped
    the white male american

    do no wrong
    so clean cut
    dirties his hands
    it comes right off
    police man, police man.
