Pearl Jam – Hard To Imagine lyrics

Paint a picture forty shades of gray.
Light your pillow. Lay back. Watch the flames.
I'll tell a story but no one would listen that long.

It's hard to imagine. It's hard to imagine.
Ohh [x4]

Tear into yourself, count days upon your arms
All the beatings ticking like a bomb.
After having seen all that they saw.

It's hard to imagine. It's hard to imagine.
Ohh [x4]

Things were different then. All is different now.
I tried to explain. Somehow.
Things were different then. All is different now.
I tried to explain. Somehow.
Ohh [x4]

Things were different then. All is different now.
I tried to explain. I hope this works. Somehow.
Things were different then. All is different now.
I tried to explain. Oh, somehow.
Ohh [x4]

    I think this song is similar to the song "Sam Stone" by John Prine meaning that I think it's about a Vietnam War vet who is also a junkie. He's tried to explain what happened in the war but no one listens, he counts the days on his arms (track marks), he is the way he is after all that he's seen. It seams clear to me.
