Pearl Jam's, "Corduroy"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I would rather run but I can't walk,
Guess I lie alone just like a fork
Why They're Nonsensical:
So he can't run or walk but he can lie down - OK so far, but 'alone just like a fork'? What kind of comparison is that?

Pearl Jam's, "Pilate"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Like Pilate I have a dog.
Why They're Nonsensical:
How does Eddie Vedder know that Pilate had a dog? Apparently, Eddie and Pilate hang out together on weekends and shoot the breeze about their dogs. I have a dog, does that mean I can be in a Pearl Jam song too? And since Pilate's long dead, he doesn't have a dog, he had a dog. It seems it should go, 'Pliate had a dog, and so do I.' It still wouldn't make sense, though.

Pearl Jam's, "Yellow Ledbetter"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I said, I don't whether it's a box or a bag oh yeahhh
can you see them? on the porch, yeah...
but they don't wave
Why They're Nonsensical:
Incredibly difficult to get even those words which are debated as to what they really say, I am at loss for words, other than the music is pretty cool, minus the mumbling
