Pearl Jam – Mind Your Manners Lyrics:
I’ve got an unfortunate feelin’
I’ve been beatin’ down
I feel I don’t believe and now the truth is comin’ out
What they take is
More than a vow
They’re takin’ your innocents [plural of "an innocent," as in a person who is innocent - makes "them" in next line make sense]
and then the throw them on a burnin’ pile
And all they say is
“Mind your manners”

I caught myself believin’
That I needed god
And if it’s out there somewhere we sure could use it now

Try my patience
My patience tried
This world’s no longer good enough
Makes me want to cry

And all they say is
“Mind your manners”
That’s all they’re sayin’

Self-realized and then I’m physically redeeming
I’d live another life and
I’d solve all mystery
Right around the corner
Could be bigger than ourselves
We could will it to the sky, or
We could something else . . .

You know that all they’re sayin’ [is]
“Mind your manners.”
Always prayin’!

Self-realized and then I’m physically redeeming
I’d live another life and
I’d solve all mystery
Right around the corner
Could be bigger than ourselves
We could will it to the sky, or
We could something else . . .

Go to heaven!
That’s swell!
How do you like it
Livin’ in hell?
Go to heaven!
That’s swell!
How do you like it
Livin’ in hell?
Go to heaven!
That’s swell!
How do you like it
Livin’ hell . . .
Livin’ hell!
