Cranberries – Zombie

 

This song reminds me of the times when I went to high school. It was continually broadcast back then, and I remember discussing about its meaning with my friends.
I was very different when I was a teenager, quite the opposite of what I am now, but I was engrossed by these lyrics.
It’s not me” “In your head, in your head, they are fighting” “What’s in your head, in your head, zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie, oh“. These sentences are frightening and astounding because they make you wonder how powerful our brain is.
I am frankly passionate about medicine, so I know that this organ can shape and mold our identity in infinite ways. As you know, when we feel friendship, appreciation, trust or suspicion, this is brain dependent. When we feel like acting in selfish or evil ways, this is brain dependent. Our tastes and preferences hinge exactly on that. What we feel like doing during the day, if we want to stay home, take a walk or have sex stems precisely from the chemistry of our bodies. If we remember something, we must pay heed to the fact that every memory is encoded in a precise location inside us.
The list is countless and a philosophical question arises: how can we possibly know that we actually want what we think we want in any given moment?
But music, of course, is simply for fun and we live in an amiable and amicable society, so we can dismiss these conundrums with a shrug of our shoulders.
After all, who cares? And why should we be worried about these petty theoretical trifles? Most people deserve to be trusted, don’t they?
