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.

  8. Simon says instead of Silence says. At least that's how I hear it.

  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.

  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 !
