It's a song about the city where I come from, my hometown Jakarta. It simply talks about the mixed feelings we have for this overly populated capital city. On one hand, we hate it for a large number of reasons (horrible traffics, all sorts of pollution, crime rates, unemployment, its dirty streets) but yet on another, we can't seem to bring ourselves to that complete, utter animosity. It's also a place where people from all walks of life come to seek better life and opportunities, only to find their dreams crushed as they face the harsh reality of this metropolitan. I think generally people, like myself, share this same sentiment towards the city one way or another. To be honest, however, I will always have a place for Jakarta in my heart. It's where my family is, and family means everything to me.
This is actually one of the songs I was hoping to hear him sing before the festival began.
