Plaque on the wall says that no one's slept here
It's rare to come upon a bridge that has not been around
Or been stepped on
Whatever the notions we laced in our prayers
The man upstairs is used to all of this noise
I'm through with screaming

And echoes nobody hears it goes it goes it goes
Like echoes nobody hears it goes it goes it goes
We're faithful we all believe we all believe it {4X}

And echoes nobody hears, it goes, it goes, it goes {2X}
We're faithful, we all believe, we all believe it {3X}
So faithful, we all believe, we all believe it

M.Y.T.H. is?
Belief in the game controls that keeps us in a box of fear
We never listen
Voice inside so drowned out
Drowned you are, you are, you are a furry thing
And everything is you
Me you, you me, it's all related
What's a boy to do?
Just be darling and I will be too
Faithful to you

    General CommentThis song is such a great representation of those people in organized religion, just screaming and yelling that they believe. showing that religion is used to control and pacify.

    General CommentI can see how some think that this song is a knock at organized religions - and in some ways I agree. But I do think that the overall message of this song is meant to be positive, not negative...

    I think the chorus, "We're faithfull, We all believe!" means that everyone out there believes in SOMETHING, whether it's a higher power (God, Allah, Buddha, Mother Earth, whatever name they choose to associate their belief in a higher power truly does NOT matter) or just a belief in a way of living...what does matter is that the faith is there either way.

    Maybe the message is to those religous fanatics saying that hey, as human beings we all have faith in something, and that's a good thing - so stop fighting over what faith is!

    And the final lines of the song seem to me to be like a conversation between two good friends, or two people in a relationship - just be good to me, treat me with respect and dignity, be faithful to me, and I'll do the same for you.

    General CommentI was the perfect age when Pearl Jam came onto the scene, 14, and yet I hated them for years, thought I was too cool for them, thought they were sell outs, thought of myself as a true punk rebel, then I grew the fuck up, and one day by chance I heard this song, and fkn fell in love, just fell in love, and consumed everything PJ did and never looked back.

    General CommentI believe this song is trying to say simply that we all may have faith in something intangible, but our priority should be faith in life around us, as in taking care of it; the environment, family, friends, less fortunate.

    General CommentWell said Lango84... and the Captain is right, its FaithFULL for just that reason. :)

    M-Y-T-H is belief in the game.
    controls that keeps us in a box of fear.
