Lyrics for Black, Red, Yellow by Pearl Jam:

Verse 1
Exponentially serving. Perpetually unnerving. Vehicle swerving
The adjectives they are all a-blurring
Freud walking the sidelines clipboard scoring the brain
Black magic viente y tres, makes me sane

Chorus
Hormones firing like a fifty foot Roman, yeah
Please don't make me explain. Don't matter anyway

Verse 2
Phantom pain in my brain. It's all that's left of my leg
Black and Red and Yellow and Black and Red and Yellow
Heard you repeat a-what you heard. Me knowing the truth I can not concur

Chorus
Hormones firing like a fifty foot Roman, yeah
Please don't make me explain. Don't matter anyway
Hormones firing like a fifty foot Roman, yeah
Please don't make me explain. Don't matter anyway

Bridge
Yo bro. Tell us what's happening. Um, I'm on the west, west side of, on the west coast
Give me a jingle, uh, when you get in from where the fuck you're at

Chorus
Hormones firing like a fifty foot Roman, yeah
Please don't make me explain. Don't matter anyway
Hormones firing like a fifty foot Roman, yeah
Please don't make me explain. Don't matter anyway

Song Facts

This B-side to the “Hail, Hail” single is an homage to Dennis Rodman, fan of the basketball-fanatic band and personal friend of theirs. The colors refer to the Chicago Bulls jersey and “The Worm”’s oft-bleached hair. Rodman contributes an “answering machine” phrase in the song, and appeared during a 2016 performance in Chicago, where he lifted Eddie on his shoulders.
