I just heard this song today and I was like "woah!" How do you feel about it? Is it just some mainstream crap or does it have a stong inner message for humanity. I myself think that the words of this song are full of wisdom.

"For the first time McCready contributed lyrics to a Pearl Jam album, writing the lyrics to the closing track "Inside Job". McCready said that he wrote the lyrics while touring in São Paulo as he "want[ed] this song to happen" despite Vedder not having done the lyrics yet, and added that the lyrical inspiration was the realization that "I had to go inside myself first before I could be open to outside ideas." - Wikipedia



"Inside Job"

Underneath this smile Lies everything
All my hopes, anger, pride and shame

Make myself a pact, not to shut doors on the past
Just for today,... I am free

I will not lose my faith
It's an inside job today

I know this one thing well,...

I used to try and kill love, it was the highest sin
Breathing insecurity out and in

Searching hope, I'm shown the way to run straight
Pursuing the greater way for all human light

How I choose to feel is how I am
How I choose to feel is how I am

I will not lose my faith
It's an inside job today

Holding on, the light of the night
On my knees to rise and fix my broken soul

Again.

Let me run into the rain
To be a human light again

Let me run into the rain
To shine a human light today

Oh, life comes from within your heart and desire
Oh, life comes from within my heart and desire
Oh, life comes from within your heart and desire

Is realizing that autarky is *the* keyfactor to completeness enlightenment for you?

I haven't heard that song, but Pearl Jam is one of my favorite artists. His songs are incredibly honest and deep/meaningful, at least the ones I've heard. The main guy also started doing some solo stuff. Eddie Vedder.

I can listen to that song
