Pearl Jam: Blood Meaning
Stab it down, one way needle, pulled so slowly
Drains and spills, soaks the pages, fills their sponges
It's my blood (2x)
Paint Ed big...Turn Ed into...One of his enemies...
I believe this is simply a jab at the media and magazine companies who used Eddie's image and words to create this idea of who he was, and used it for their own benefit. I think the opening lines "Spin me 'round, roll me over, fuckin' circus," are subtle mentions of the magazine companies Spin, Rolling Stone, and Circus, respectively.
