Pearl Jam: Corduroy Meaning
I take your entrance back...can’t let you roam inside my head
I don’t want to take what you can give...
I would rather starve than eat your bread...
I would rather run but I can’t...

The song, I believe, is Vedder's cry against fame. He is fed up with people treating him like he is a god and how the fans cling to him and his every word. This constant treatment could also lead him to start feeling like he hasd no responsibilities, or, in a sense, useless. All he was doing was just begging for a moment's peace, and normalcy, which is something I relate to.

People it's about his love loss of his dad. It spells it out in the song if you listen to it.

McCready and Vedder had a falling out and hated each other for a whileMcCready baught a corduroy jacket as a gift for Vedder and gave it to vedder. Vedder didn't want to accept it but they both apologized. Vedder wore the jacket saw how much McCready paid for it and saw that the price had gone up because he was wearing it.

The name comes from when Eddie Vedder bought a corduroy jacket in an op shop for something like $2, then later saw it on sale in a well-known shop for over $100.
The song is about fame and how corrupt and inconsiderate the media is. Put fame instead of the word you in the lyrics everytime and see how it makes sense, because its talking about fame in general, not a specific person.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
