Later days

Jeremy - Pearl Jam

At home
Drawing pictures
Of mountain tops
With him on top
Lemon yellow sun
Arms raised in a V
Dead lay in pools of maroon below
Daddy didn't give attention
To the fact that mommy didn't care
King Jeremy the wicked
Ruled his world
Jeremy spoke in class today
Jeremy spoke in class today
Clearly I remember
Pickin' on the boy
Seemed a harmless little fuck
But we unleashed a lion
Gnashed his teeth
And bit the recessed lady's breast
How could i forget
He hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurtin
Dropped wide open
Just like the day
Like the day i heard
Daddy didn't give affection
And the boy was something mommy wouldn't wear
King jeremy the wicked
Ruled his world
Jeremy spoke in class today
Jeremy spoke in class today
Try to forget this...
Try to erase this...
From the blackboard.


Sempre senti uma atração inexplicável por esta música, mesmo sem nunca ter verdadeiramente prestado atenção, uma coisa que não sabia bem o que era, mas sabia que estava lá, e por algum motivo eu sempre pensava em vingança, em alguma forma de vendetta universalmente justa mas politicamente incorreta, eu pensava no troco, naquele grito amassado contra o céu da boca, eu pensava em todas essas coisas todas que se servem frias e se comem no escuro; hoje eu descobri que Jeremy já teve pernas e braços e umbigo, Jeremy Wade Delle, nascido em fevereiro de 75, morreu aos 15 anos em janeiro de 1991.

Delle was described by schoolmates as "real quiet" and known for "acting sad." After coming in to class late that morning, Delle was told to get an admittance slip from the school office. He left the classroom, and returned with a .357 Magnum revolver. Delle walked to the front of the classroom, announced "Miss, I got what I really went for", put the barrel of the firearm in his mouth, and pulled the trigger before his teacher or classmates could react. A girl named Lisa Moore knew Jeremy from the in-school suspension program: "He and I would pass notes back and forth and he would talk about life and stuff," she said. "He signed all of his notes, 'Write back.' But on Monday he wrote, 'Later days.' I didn't know what to make of it. But I never thought this would happen."

Eu estava errado.
