Pearl Jam: State of Love and Trust Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
State of Love and Trust Lyrics
as I busted down the pretext
sin still plays and preaches
but to have an empty court, uh huh
and the signs are passin, grip the wheel
can't read it
sacrifice receiving the smell that's on my hands...hands yeah

To me, it almost has the same meaning as Vermillion by Slipknot. Like, a man raping a girl (make it painful, painfully quick- right after "lay her down as priest does") then the guilt and shame driving him to suicide.
I could be totally wrong though.

It’s about battling your own instincts on love, and being faithful.

Having thoughts of suicide.
