Lyrics for Nothingman - Remastered by Pearl Jam:

Verse 1
Once divided, nothing left to subtract
Some words when spoken can't be taken back
Walks on his own with thoughts he can't help thinking
Future's above, but in the past he's slow and sinking

Caught a bolt of lightning, cursed the day he let it go

Chorus
Nothingman
Nothingman
Isn't it something, nothingman

Verse 2
She once believed in every story he had to tell
One day she stiffened, took the other side
Empty stares from each corner of a shared prison cell
One just escapes, one's left inside the well

And he who forgets will be destined to remember... Oh oh ohh

Chorus
Nothingman
Nothingman
Isn't it something, nothingman

Bridge
Ooh, she don't want him (she don't want him)
Oh, She won't feed him after he's flown away

Oh, into the sun
Ah, into the sun
Burn (burn), burn, burn

Chorus
Nothingman
Nothingman
Isn't it something, nothingman
Nothingman
Nothingman
Coulda' been something, nothingman

Outro
Uh, uh oh oh oh
Uh oh oh oh

Song Facts

This song is somewhat of the male side of Better Man. It’s a ballad about a guy who has messed up, big time and lost his love. She was great, and she thought he was everything. The problem is, he also thought he was awesome and could do better (see Icarus reference in lyrics). He let her go and she’s not going to come back. Now that she’s gone, he realizes what he had and he’s ruminating, unable to move forward…he feels he’s nothing…nothingman.
