Society
Eddie Vedder Lyrics


It's a mystery to me
We have a greed
With which we have agreed

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
I 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
'Cause when you have more than you think
You need more space

Society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me
Society, crazy and deep
I hope you're not lonely without me

There's those thinking more or less less is more
But if less is more how you're keeping score?
Means for every point you make
Your level drops
Kinda like it's starting from the top
You can't do that

Society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me
Society, crazy and deep
I hope you're not lonely without me

Society, have mercy on me
I hope you're not angry if I disagree
Society, crazy and deep
I hope you're not lonely without me

I spend hours &hours commenting mostly under Eddie,Chris and Chester honestly; and just hearing Eddie's beautiful voice ,I just thank God above that he's here with us! And blessing us with his beautiful music. We always have Chris and Chester's music to remain here, likewise ultimately, Eddie's will remain carved into this earth when he's gone.
But I'm so glad Eddie is just toughing it out and sticking around. This is the highlight of my day, my music and reading comments and leaving comments you know . Life changes but this is good stuff. That's why I get mad at the haters ,especially on Chris and Chester's songs, that would dare post anything negative about them after they have perished.Pure Evil .
You know but at least Chris and Chester have fkn ☮️ PEACE now.
Eddie you have so many people that love you. This is going to sound really silly ;but I don't care. When I listen to you, I feel like I know you.. I think we all do. I think the fans almost feel a bond with you guys. You have just identified with us in a way nobody else has, it's kind of surreal, but that's how I feel. I believe that we view You guys In a Different Light than the average musician. Number one because you guys are not average damn musicians but.. u know; Well, I can't even explain it . I know everybody here gets what I'm saying,it's kind of like riding a Harley LOL ..One of my stickers that I had on my helmets said that awesome Harley-Davidson quote, "If I had to explain it, you wouldn't understand."
Life Changes everybody has their stuff. I have isolated for 4 years since I I got in a wheelchair, amongst many other things lol but by the grace of God I can get up and walk most of the time now you know I'm just saying this because we have Black Days you know, and many of us are just absolutely alone there's probably quite a few other this pretty much lost everything. But you know we can breathe and we can walk and we can listen to your kickass music. I wish I was a star in somebody's sky.
I love to just come on YouTube, it's the only communication I've had with others almost 4 years you got to be tough cuz how quickly that sun can fall away..
I can't tell you how much your music honestly has changed my whole life! It's like a little mosaic piece of me. Not only do you convey such deep heartfelt freaking awesome messages in every song you have ,it's like a part of us. If I didn't have this to do and timeless music to listen to, I don't know what I'd do.
My dad, my precious father who loved me unconditionally, the sole one, was a violin major and was in 3 symphony orchestras & I played piano with him. We used to talk about music , it's vital. I can't imagine living without it.
You know, when you can't talk about it, or you can't get through it, you sing it. That's what you do for me. I just wish I could talk to you someway.I wish I could just sit down and meet you and spend 1 hour with you.
Today! Oh I need to.
You already are my star in my sky. IN MMMIIINNNEEE!
And thank you so much for that.
We love you ,stay strong please! God bless you Eddie!

I live alone, I sing this song. I've lived alone since March 2020.. I don't miss society, and I'm sure they don't miss me

Giordano. Erno

Off the grid you would not have electricity to blast it off..

Everyone looks at Christopher McCandless story as one that should push people to go out, in the wild, alone, to find freedom. No one looks at the message Christopher sent: a person can find him/herself struggling to live in this society (a capitalistic and globalized one, where one consumes to always consume more - i.e. buying brand new phones when your own is still working, or a new car because it is more beautiful than the one you have) but you cannot change the society from outside, alienating yourself in the wild, with no contact with that "society". Christopher tried to go back in that society, he built his own awareness, he understood he needed people and things around him to be happy, not the extreme and sometimes empty wildness. And as you can see, he remains 113 days in the wild. But travels for 2 long years, meeting people, not feeling alone at all. To sum up, I believe you can be free everywhere, if your soul is free. You can love others, if you love yourself. And traveling is a way of being free and of loving, with no necessities to "close" yourself in the wild. And believe me, though you may sometimes decide to travel alone (so with no people you know) you will never be alone along the route, as you will meet those who will make up your traveling days and experiences - and everything will make more sense and will be more amazing. "Happiness only real when shared" C.J. McCandless.

Hey There
