Daughter Lyrics

[Intro: Eddie Vedder]
(You guys ready?)

[Verse: Eddie Vedder]
Alone, listless
Breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
Young girl, violence
Center of her own attention
The mother reads aloud, child tries to understand it
Tries to make her proud
The shades go down, it's in her head
Painted room, can't deny there's something wrong

[Chorus: Eddie Vedder]
Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me

[Bridge: Eddie Vedder]
She holds the hand that holds her down
She will rise above
Ooh oh

[Chorus: Eddie Vedder]
Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to be
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to be
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me

[Outro: Eddie Vedder]
The shades go down
The shades go down
The shades go, go, go...
