Eddie Wedder: Guaranteed - Into the Wild Soundtrack

As it was coming from within..:

On bended knee is no way to be free

lifting up an empty cup I ask silently

that all my destination will accept the one that's me

so I can breath

Circles they grow and they swallow people whole

half their lives they say goodnight to wive's they'll never know

got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul

so it goes...

Don't come closer or I'll have to go

Holding me like gravity are places that pull

If ever there was someone to keep me at home

It would be you...

Everyone I come across in cages they bought

they think of me and my wondering

but I'm never what they thought

got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts

I'm alive...

Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere

underneath my being is a road that disappeared

late at night I hear the trees

they're singing with the dead


Leave it to me as I find a way to be

consider me a satellite for ever orbiting

I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me

I have been having just the same feeling! It is a beautiful masterpiece, I think... All the actors (especially Emile Hirsch), and of course the director Sean Penn, did grasp something fundamental of our human existence, and could express it brilliantly. I am happy to find a fellow fan! ;)

This is one of my favorite movies, and I sobbed for hours after it ended. Your poem touches me.
