A song that appeared in two cult games. Restrained aggression to the nightmare.
Greetings, readers! Today we will talk about the song (the text and composition for review are at the end of the article), which appeared in two cult games, which are GTA 4 and GTA 5. This is a song by LCD Soundsystem — Get Innocent.
From the beginning of the song, it feels like a bustling city during rush hour, after which the “drums” begin to sound, which tell me about the restrained aggression to this nightmare.
Then the text repeats with repeated chords:
You can normalize
Doesn’t it make you feel alive?
They actually create the impression of a routine born of the norms of society, when you have a job, loans, children, and you have to “go on your own rails”, otherwise the system will collapse. Actually, as it goes on from day to day, so the chords are repeated.
However, all this ends in words:
“Home, home late at night
And away, away in half-life
Except Saturday, crushed by the boring
While they do not suffer, they do not suffer from tourists
When once you believed it, Now you see that it draws you in to put on a pretense
And pave the way for the upcoming release
Alone, in the half-light
And late, late in real life
If you find your way into the gold rush
You will stay until morning”
That is, the whole routine ends on a weekend evening, when people put on the “mask of fun and satisfaction” that they earned by suffering during the week, but still they are the same people, and their burden has not disappeared anywhere. But at this time, at least a small hope is born, that one day it will be better.
Unfortunately, it all ends again with repeated chords and words, and ends with a minor-sounding violin that represents the loss of any hope of change…
