Pearl Jam – Soon Forget lyrics

Sorry is the fool who trades his soul for a corvette
Thinks he'll get the girl, he'll only get the mechanic
What's missing? he's living a day he'll soon forget
That's one more time around, the sun is going down
The moon is out, but he's drunk and shouting, putting people down
He's pissing, he's living a day he'll soon forget
Counts his money every morning
The only thing that keeps him horny
Locked in a giant house, that's alarming
The townsfolk, they all laugh
Sorry is the fool who trades his love for high-rise rent
Seems the more you make, equals the loneliness you get
And it's fitting, he's barely living, a day he'll soon forget
That's one more time around, there is not a sound
He's lying dead clutching benjamins, never put the money down
He's stiffening, we're all whistling
A man we'll soon forget
