Masyarakat itu Gila!

Dalam filem Into The Wild, ada lagu yang menggambarkan tentang masyarakat secara umum, di mana menurut saya lagu itu lebih menarasikan apa itu manusia yang tidak pernah lepas kebutuhannya. Manusia sebagai makhluk sosial membentuk society yang seakan-akan juga mempunyai nyawa dan hasrat. Eddi Vedder dalam lagunya Soceity, yang ditulis oleh Jerry Hannan memberikan gambaran seorang tokoh yang menyadari penyakit dalam masyarakat ini dan lebih memilih untuk “meninggalkan masyarakat”. Sebuah lagu yang memiiki arogansi tinggi, tetapi sarat dengan kritik yang dalam.
Eddie Vedder: Society Lyrics
Songwriters: Hannan, Jerry
Oh, it’s a mystery to me
We have a greed with which we have agreed
And you think you have to want more than you need
Until you have it all you won’t be free
Society, you’re a crazy breed
Hope you’re not lonely without me
When you want more than you have
You think you need
And when you think more than you want
Your thoughts begin to bleed
I think I need to find a bigger place
Because when you have more than you think
You need more space
Society, you’re a crazy breed
Hope you’re not lonely without me
Society, crazy indeed
Hope you’re not lonely without me
There’s those thinking, more-or-less, less is more
But if less is more, how you keeping score?
Means for every point you make, your level drops
Kinda like you’re starting from the top
You can’t do that
Society, you’re a crazy breed
Hope you’re not lonely without me
Society, crazy indeed
Hope you’re not lonely without me
Society, have mercy on me
Hope you’re not angry if I disagree
Society, crazy indeed
Hope you’re not lonely without me
