“There’s those thinkin’ more or less, less is more,
but if less is more, how you keepin’ score?
It means for every point you make, your level drops.
Kinda like you’re startin’ from the top…
and you can’t do that.”
–Society, Performed by Eddie Vedder, Into the Wild Soundtrack

For the last week I have been haunted by those words. While I have had the Into the Wild Soundtrack for over 2 years now, I have more recently been listening to it a lot. I guess is comes with the excitement I have for Pearl Jam’s newest album Backspacer.
I find great meaning in the lyrics I quoted above and the lyrics to the entire song. Since most of my posts convey strong opinions that I have, you might expect I would share my thoughts. Not this time, at least not yet. First, I want to hear what those words mean to everyone else. Specifically, how do you answer the question, “But is less if more, how you keepin’ score?”
