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

    But I found my place and it's all right
    We're all searching for a better way
    Get this off my plate
    It's all right, I got my own way to believe

    Find a lighthouse in the dark stormy weather
    We all could use a sedative right now
    Holy rollers sitting with their backs to the middle all alone and sinking the bow

    And if you want to have to pray, it's all right
    We all be thinking with our different brain get this off my plate
    It's all right, I got my own way to believe, it's okay

    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
    Silence says we're not allowed to consider
    Silence says stand up sit down you're out

    But I found my place
    And it's all right, I'm bearing witness to some better things, get this off my plate
    It's all right, I've got my own way to believe
    It's okay, 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 okay, 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 okay
    Sometimes you find yourself being told to change your ways
    For god's sake, mine is mine and yours won't take its place

    Now, make your getaway
    Now, make your getaway Writer/s: EDDIE JEROME VEDDER
