Eddie Vedder Spoke – Explanation
I don’t even know if the concept came across
there was shot in the video that we didn’t keep
of the young kid with the gun in his mouth
certain people wouldn’t let us show it
I understand, ya know
I understand why they don’t want teenagers with guns in their mouths in front of a classroom
but, uh, that’s what happened
I’m not making it up, ya know
and I’m sorry that there is a reason to make this video
or to write that song or a song about that
it shouldn’t have happened
I’m sorry that people had to watch it so many times

Jeremy Spoke – Pearl Jam – Note
“Jeremy” [ … ] takes its main inspiration from a newspaper article about a 15-year-old boy named Jeremy Wade Delle from Richardson, Texas who shot himself in front of his English classmates on the morning of January 8, 1991.
In a 2009 interview, [Eddie] Vedder said that he felt “the need to take that small article and make something of it—to give that action, to give it reaction, to give it more importance.”
… I want to tell everyone that he is no longer here …
… but then again I do not…
… I want to tell everyone how I feel …
… but I don’t know how I feel …
… I want to tell everyone what he meant to me …
… but I haven’t come to terms with that …
… I want to hug his wife and somehow ensure her she will be okay …
… but I am helpless with that endeavor …
… So I guess I will just breathe today …
… I do not know what I will do tomorrow …
… But I will be back …
… Peace …
… Love love love, etc. …
“Just Breathe” – Live At Austin City Limits – Pearl Jam
Yes I understand That every life must end As we sit alone I know someday we must go
Yeah I’m a lucky man To count on both hands The ones I love Some folks just have one Yeah others they got none
Stay with me Let’s just breathe
Practised on our sins Never gonna let me win Under everything Just another human being
I don’t want to hurt There’s so much in this world To make me believe
Stay with me All I see
Did I say that I need you? Did I say that I want you? What if I did and I’m a fool you see No one knows this more than me ‘Cause I come clean
I wonder everyday As I look upon your face Everything you gave And nothing you would take Nothing you would take Everything you gave
Did I say that I need you? Did I say that I want you? What if I did and I’m a fool you see No one knows this more than me I come clean
Nothing you would take Everything you gave Hold me ’till I die Meet you on the other side
