Pursuing My True Self
Shoji Meguro Lyrics


We are living our lives
Abound with so much information

Come on, let go of the remote;
don't you know you're letting
all the junk flood in?
I try to stop the flow
double clicking on the go, but it's no use;
hey, I'm being consumed
Loading loading loading
quickly reaching maximum capacity
Warning warning warning
gonna short-circuit my identity (ahhh)

Get up on your feet, tear down the walls
Catch a glimpse of the hollow world
Snooping 'round will get you nowhere
You're locked up in your mind

We're all trapped in a maze of relationships
Life goes on with or without you
I swim in the sea of the unconscious
I search for your heart, pursuing my true self

We are living our lives
Abound with so much information

Come on, let go of the remote
Don't you know you're letting all the junk flood in?
I try to stop the flow, double-clicking on the go,
But it's no use hey, I'm being consumed
Loading loading loading,
Quickly reaching maximum capacity
Warning warning warning,
Gonna short-circuit my identity (ahhhh)

Get up on your feet, tear down the walls
Catch a glimpse of the hollow world
Snooping 'round town will get you nowhere
You're locked up in your mind

We're all trapped in a maze of relationships
Life goes on with or without you
I swim in the sea of the unconscious
I search for your heart, pursuing my true self

Get up, get up, it's time to get real
Can't control the steering wheel, outside is in a veil
Of mystery Won't get out so easily
We are living our lives, and we realize what's happening
Hey Brother, watch yourself
Grab your things, Don't miss your chance
Find your own rhythm
And dance your own dance

Be creative Chart your course
You must know what lies ahead
Driving through the deep end of the ocean
Leaving obscurity

You are standing in the middle of another world
It's hard to feel your real emotions
You are smiling in a shirt wet with bitter tears
Let me help you find a place to call it home

We're all trapped in a maze of relationships
Life goes on with or without you
I swim in the sea of the unconscious
I search for your heart, pursuing my true self

No one's talking about how this song's basically about how people and their truths are being erased by the constant flux of media, and to break away from it to "pursue the truth".

Persona 4 imo has the best themes and execution of said themes in entire series. One of my, if not my favourite game of all time!

@Mr Darknut  @Mr Darknut  exactly. Persona 4 story was an awesome commentary on media consumption. Hell, it's even more relevant now. The truths gets muddled in the jungle of endless information.

I only see the media part connecting because of the "Come on, let go of the remote. Youre letting all the junk flood in." I didnt get how you got this from the lyrics at first but now I see it. Prob gonna listen to it again to check the lyrics again tho.

Edit: Nevermind it makes complete sense starting from the beginning. Idk how the hollow world works tho cuz I havent played p4. If it works just like p5 then Im just not getting the lyrics, cuz Ik how the metaverse works. I was thinking that she says to "tear down the walls and catch a glimpse of the Hollow World" because thats where you find your true self, which I feel like I got right depsite what Im about to say. Then she says "Snooping around will get you nowhere, youre locked up in your mind" I took "snooping around" as exploring the hollow world to find your true self, but she says it "will get you nowhere and its because youre "locked up in your mind" which made me think the Hollow world isnt how youd find yourself, which considering the context of Persona, I feel isnt right, so Im kinda confused. Maybe snooping around just isnt the correct tactic or something. It does say you search for other peoples hearts tho, so maybe running around the hollow world looking for your true self is like running in circles, and you still have to find yourself either normally to get an persona, or rebel against something you disagree with, like in P5

In the age of internet and social media Persona 4 2 would be perfect
