Mind Your Manners lyrics by Pearl Jam

The first single from Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt album.

Lyrics

I've got an unfortunate feelin'
I've been beaten down
I feel I don't believe
And now the truth is coming out
What they've taken is more than a vow
They've taken your innocence
And then they throw them on a burning fire

All along they're sayin'
Mind your manners

I caught myself believin'
That I needed God
And if it's hard for some
We sure could use it now

Try my patience
My patience tried
This world's no longer good enough
That makes me wanna cry

All along they're sayin'
Mind your manners

Silence save him!

Self-realized and metaphysically redeemed
May not live another life
May not solve a mystery
Right around the corner
Could be bigger than ourselves
We could will it to the sky
Or we could something else

No longer sayin!
Mind your manners!
Always burning

Go to Heaven
That's swell
How do you like it
Living in Hell

Repeat outro lyrics three times.

  2. Taken straight from the official Pearl Jam website.

    I got an unfortunate feeling
    I been beaten down
    I feel that I'm done believing
    Now the truth is coming out

    What they're taking is
    More than a vow
    They're taking young innocents
    And then they throw em on a burning pile
    Ah ah ay ay

    And all along they're saying
    "Mind your manners!"

    I caught myself believing
    That I needed God
    And if it's out there somewhere
    We sure could use hymn now

    Try my patience!
    My patience tried
    This world's a long love letter
    That makes me want to cry
    Ah ah ay ay

    And all along they're saying
    "Mind your manners!"
    That's all they're saying

    Self-realized and metaphysically redeemed
    May not live another life
    May not solve our mystery

    Right round the corner
    Could be bigger than ourselves
    We could will it to the sky
    Or we could something else

    And all along they're saying
    "Mind your manners!"
    Always praying

    Go to heaven
    That's swell
    How you like your living in Hell?

    Go to Heaven
    That's swell
    How you like your living Hell?

  3. This album IS a concept album, of sorts. Who knows if the guys will ever truthfully admit it though I doubt it.
    This album was not haphazardly put together. The guys are not dumb. They are actually incredibly clever.
    The album art even has a flow to it.
    The truth is in the album title.
    Why do you think for the first time ever, they named an album after a song?
    Because that song holds the key!!!

  5. Pearl Jam from 20yrs ago is honored & shocked to be given the opportunity to soundtrack the World Series.

    Stop pretending you know what feels like to be them.

    They are men who make their own decisions in life.

  6. I agree! The ARE very clever. I always take some of their lyrics / videos for my final exams, now my teachers are fascinated with them.

  7. I think you may be right about it being a concept album. It's very possible. ;-)

  8. Yawn. I'm not impressed with this album's New Age/Luciferian/New World Order symbolism and the obvious anti-Christian overtone of the lyrical content. No longer a fan.

    1. The fact that you see any Anti-Christian overtones here only means that you have a great deal doubt about Christianity yourself...
