Getaway lyrics by Pearl Jam

Getaway is from Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt album.

Lyrics

Everyone's a critic looking back up the river
Every boat is leaking in this town
Everybody's thinking that they'll all be delivered
Sitting in a box like lost and found

But I found my place and it's alright
We all searching for our better way
Got yours off my plate, it's alright
I got my own way to believe

Find a lighthouse in the dark stormy weather
We all could use a sedative right not
Holy rollers sittin with their backs to the middle
All hands on deck, sinking is the bow

And if you wanna have to pray, it's alright
We all be thinking with our different brains
Get yours off my plate, it's alright
I got my own way to believe

It's ok
Sometimes you find yourself
Having to put all your faith
In no faith
Mine is mine, and yours won't take its place
Now make your getaway

Science says we're making love like the lizards
Try and say that fossils ain't profound
Simon says that we are not allowed to consider
Simon says "Stand-up. Sit-down. You're out!"

But I found my place, and it's alright
Bearing witness to some stranger days
Get yours off my plate, it's alright
I got my own ways to believe

It's ok
Sometimes you find yourself being told to change your ways
There's no way
Mine is mine and yours won't take its place
Now make your getaway

It's ok
Sometimes you find yourself
Having to put all your faith
In no faith
Mine is mine, and yours won't take its place
Now make your getaway

It's ok
Sometime you find yourself
Being told to change your ways
For Gods sake
Mine is mine and yours won't take its place
Now make your getaway

Make your getaway

  2. Faith is faith, who is the critic and who's sinking the bow, no me son.
    Mine is mine and yours is yours, don't need no getaway.

  10. What does this mean?

    Science says we're making love like the lizards
    Try and say that fossils ain't profound

    1. He is giving credit to evolutionists and people of faith ... Eddie's point is that he wants to be left alone regarding other people's opinion on religion (take it off his plate), so he can believe whatever he feels like ... he doesn't need anyone's theory or help ... though the lizard and dinosaur thing is interesting to him ... I'm a Christian and know the truth. I love Eddie with all my heart, but he is wrong

    2. "Eddie's point is that he wants to be left alone regarding other people's opinion on religion"

      then

      "I love Eddie with all my heart, but he is wrong"

      You're Christian, I respect that. That doesn't make you right : that makes you a believer.
      Your opinion should be yours and yours alone : no one should feel the right to judge someone else's opinions on things like these.

      For example, I could just be a douchebag and reply "Sorry, there's just too much science for me to believe that Adam and Eve really did start all of humanity", but I didn't, because your opinion is yours and that alone is enough to respect it.

      "I do not agree with what you say, but I'd be willing to give my life so that you may say it."
      Voltaire, known for not being a good Christian.

  15. Andy Balogh, stop ur bullshit here pls

  16. Ed, I believe, knows there's something much bigger than us out there no matter if he calls it God or whatever. There's just no reason to push any religion down a person's throat. That's all he's saying. IMHO

    1. You should say "Ed, I believe, think there's is something much bigger..." as there is absolutely no proof that there is !

  17. My favorite song on the album.
    I wish they had made it a single.

    We are all allowed to believe what we want to believe and the combination of Church & State should be challenged.


    Then again, maybe that's just a Western Civilization spin on it?

  18. Hmmmm.
    Getting in to a bathtub with bathing suits on?!?!

    Niice.

    Ummm. I probably shouldn't write anything more.
    You have a very dirty mind.
    ;)

    Damn sexy.
    I surrender.
    Enough already.

    You are an absolute booger.

    Tease.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am going to absolutely kill you the next time I see you for teasing me with "visual".

    I hope you find yourself amusing!!!

    I am gonna get you back.
    I promise.

    <3

    If you were here, I'd wrap my legs around you.
    So mad at you right now.

    Stop teasing me.
    I
    Cant
    Take
    It.

    I want my TREAT!!!!!

  20. So I have to ask, since you've been so kind as to make me all tingly down there now...
    How long do you expect to actually converse before you decide to carry me off to the bedroom????

    LOL

    How are we even going to manage a conversation now that I'm all hot & bothered again, Einstein?

    What?
    Are you really needing me to come more than 6x?

    ;)

  21. Ok.
    You can take me somewhere nice for dinner.
    And we can go for a peaceful midnight stroll around the city.
    It will be nice.

    And yes, it would be fun to go to your cabin in Utah on New Years.
    Watching snow fall in the evening is so relaxing.

    We are done with this website now.
    My flight arrives Sunday.
    You can wait til then and so can I.
    Please dont tease me all the time in between, tho, My Love.

    I cant do that any longer without crying about the separation.
    Seriously.
    Every time Im about to achieve fulfillment, I start crying about us being apart.
    Being apart is really very hard on my heart.

    See you at the airport.
    Kiss to your cheek.

  22. If you need a "fantasy memory jog",
    I saw a Videogremmie vid on Youtube of 'Of the Earth' in Denver.
    Its actually a pretty good vid.
    You could watch that and remind yourself of that sensual long kiss we shared when the band started jamming.
    :)
    Im shocked people didnt dump their beers in us!!!
    LOL
    I like how when someone yelled, "Get a room!"
    You turned it shouted, "We have a rioom already but this is our 1st date!"
    ;)

    It was a great kiss!
    That song now has a whole new meaning for me.

    <3
    Love ya.
    I am deeply, eternally, in love with you.

    GONE.

  23. Him- You are the most patient & understanding woman I have ever met.

    Her- Always look at that as a strength, not a weakness.
    Do not ever take my love for granted and we will be fine.

  24. Almost forgot and this is rather important.
    I spoke with a girlfriend the other day who gave me excellent advice.
    She provided pointers in how to handle being the 2nd wife when there are kids involved.
    She told me tales of how nasty ex-wives can be when it comes to using the kids as pawns and also how her hubby's ex is constantly hitting him up for larger child support payments.
    Brother, it's so ugly how people can behave when they have no understanding of healthy love.
    My girlfriend told me to not get sucked in to the drama...for the kids sake.
    She said "dont stoop to her level (the ex wifes)".
    It all made sense.
    She said that her hubby's ex could never be satisfied with anything her hubby did.
    Either the house wasnt big enough or the cars werent fancy enough...right down to why couldnt he shovel all the neighbors driveways when a snow storm came thru like so& so's husband.
    How she demeaned him to the point that he wanted out of the relationship.
    Who could blame him, right?

    But her real advice for me was to not get in heated conversations with the ex.
    Just don't.

    And I am heeding that suggestion 100%.

    For the sake and welfare of our love, I am going to bite my tongue.
    Because, bottom line, I am in love with you.
    And your peace of mind is my priority.
    Above everything else...our happiness is what counts.
    <3
