"Inside Job" as written by and Mike Mccready Eddie Vedder....
Underneath this smile lies everything
All my hopes and 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 wellâ?¦

I used to try and kill love. 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 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

Life comes from within your heart and desire
Life comes from within my heart and desire
Life comes from within your heart and desire

    General CommentAbsolutely Incredible!
    The song starts oh-so slowly with Boom's organ, and from there each instrument slowly joins in, steadily building, each impacting you in a meaningful way; Gossard's acoustic, Boom's Piano, Ament's Bass, then Eddie's Vocals, each one's entrance washing over you like a wave, all leading up to McCready entering with his electric, leading you completely out of the darkness created in the beginning of the song straight into the light, to me this song is operatic, I connect with it on so many levels, and there honestly couldn't have been any other way to end the album, How I Choose To Feel Is How I Am
