"Infallible" as written by and Jeff Ament Stone Gossard....
Keep on locking your doors
Keep on building your floors
Keep on just as before
Pay disasters no mind
Didn't get you this time
No prints left at the crime

Our ship's come in and it's sinking

Of everything that's possible
In the hearts and minds of man
Somehow it is the biggest things
that keep on slipping right through our hands

By thinking we're infallible
Oh we are tempting fate instead
Ah, time we best begin here at the end, end

Wanna third second chance
Put your faith in big hands
Pay no more than a glance
All good things come to an end
This could be good as it gets
How's the view from the fence?

You think we've been here before
You are mistaken

Of everything that's possible
In the hearts and minds of man
When progress could be plausible
In reverse we curse ourselves yeah

Oh yeah by thinking we're infallible
Oh we are tempting fate instead uh uh uh
Time we best begin here at the end, end

Of everything that's possible
In the hearts and minds of man
Ye yeah somehow it is the biggest things
That keep on slipping right through our hands

Hey by thinking we're infallible
Oh, we are tempting fate instead
Oh yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Oh yeah
Yeah

Oh time we best begin
Here at the end, end
Here at the end, end

Keep on locking your doors
Keep on building your floors
Keep on just as before

    General CommentI agree but also hear more. I think he's recognizing how bad humanity it getting. And he is frustrated because we could do such grate things. But we are are too ignorant to see that things are going to shit ("you think we've been here before, you are mistaken")
    Really powerful shit! It's not too late!!! We best begin here at the ending!

    General CommentListening to this song what came to my mind was the way we're destroying the planet and even though it's getting more and more obvious, we just keep on living our lives the same way thinking we'll be fine anyway... knowing Eddie Vedder's quite concerned with ecology too, I guess that's plausible...

    My InterpretationI think this songs a reminder that you have the power to do/change something if you want to. A lot of EV songs/lyrics are like this - makes much more sense...to live...in the present tense!!!
