Eddie Vedder's "Guaranteed"

It's tough to pick one favorite song, but this is definitely in my top ten. I love the lyrics.
The whole song:

On bended knee is no way to be free
Lifting up an empty cup, I ask silently
All my destinations will accept the one that's me
So I can breathe...

Circles they grow and they swallow people whole
Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they'll never know
A mind full of questions, and a teacher in my soul
And 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 wandering, but I'm never what they thought
I've 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, forever orbiting
I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me

Very interesting how pale the figure is in contrast with the bench - ghostly almost. The large amount of white sky increases the feeling of powerlessness for me. Voted earlier.

I didn't recognize the line and have just enjoyed listening to ;Guarantees' on You Tube. Thank you. I have seen the movie 'Into The Wild' very poignant tale.

I like the way you have used a ghost to illustrate your chosen song.
