Pearl Jam's song "Do the Evolution" references the year:
"I crawled the earth, but now I'm higher. 2010, watch it go to fire."
I've listened to Pearl Jam since their early days, and have always felt the lyrics were very insightful. I bought their album "Yield" the first day it went on sale, and this song can be found on that album. It was one of my favorite songs at the time, now I'm more into SOAD, than PJ. Eddie Vedder's political ideologies tend to go hand in hand with mine, but that is not why I am starting this thread.
From the very first time I heard "Do the Evolution", I wondered what exactly is meant by "2010, watch it go to fire". That is why I am starting this thread. I am generally not into prophecies and predictions, but this has me curious. Mainly because I do not believe that any other predictions are made in their songs. Is this just a line thrown in to finish the song? Higher rhymes with fire. I know when I am writing, sometimes I throw some words together because they sound nice, and they have no real meaning. Is this the case here or should we be expecting something next year?
I welcome anyone and everyone who would like to bring some insight here. I'll take anything that you have to share about known predictions for the year 2010.
This is also a good exercise for me to practice opening my mind a little more. As I said, I generally do not buy into prophets.
edit for title change.

The World's On Fire
The World's On Fire
and it's too close to expire
in the year 6565
ain`t gonna need no husband won`t need no wife
you`ll pick your son pick your daughter too
from the bottom of a long glass tube
in the year 3535
ain`t gonna need to tell the truth tell no lies
everything you think do and say
is in the pill you took today
in the year 4545
ain`t gonna need your teeth won`t need your eyes
you won`t find a thing to chew
nobody`s gonna look at you
in the year 5555
your arms are hanging limp at your sides
your legs got nothing to do
some machines doing that for you
