Songfacts®:

  • Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt album finds frontman Eddie Vedder in a questioning mood. However, he appears to have found some answers on this song as we hear him sing: "I found my place and it's alright. I got my own way to believe." The vocalist explained to The Sun: "I'm always trying to unravel the same mysteries when I write, the same mysteries I've been trying to unravel for a few decades now. It could be questioning our existence – what is the purpose of life? What's going to be left of our future?"
