Isn't it another spoken word track ala I'm Open?

This was apparently included on the Japan release of Lost Dogs.

Gremmie net had/has it too, IIRC.

If I remember correctly, it was the hidden track on a promo, early-release edition of LD and was only later replaced by 4/20/02. None of the Discogs listings have it as part of the release.

I hate I'm Open, but this little narrative hit me pretty hard today. Been an emotional day and I've never heard it, and... well... I've been there.

I'm Open is alright. I don't get the hate for it.

Yeah I am really not a fan of this. Pretty cheesy poetry, particularly the very end. "Never been too good at happy endings".

When a Pearl Jam fan says "be sound" I die a little inside.

He's trying his best to sound earnest, but really doesn't. I think that's why these PJ tracks don't work that well for me.

Jim Morrison did these a little better.

True, but I think ed is a good storyteller, and it really struck a chord with me, being the first time I've heard it. Would I want to listen to it more than a handful of times ever? Probably not. Lets just chalk it up to good timing and a vulnerable moment.

I loved it. Was the soundtrack to my early 20's actually.

Special place in my heart. The music is hypnotic and i think its heartbreaking.

No... It's distant, the sounds are too distractable, and its not sincere. Also, it's vague, confusing, and makes me feel like I'm at one of those beat poetry coffee shop shows... Ick!

Not really, but I did see them at a club once. Is that the background noise, I suppose? The set had moments of swell crescendos, but overall I thought it sucked.
