He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is

from Metallica – The Unforgiven Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The individual under the society tries his best to give society what it wants. He does so in a bitter fashion because he involuntarily acts how society wants him to act. It is interesting to note that the individual is no longer a “young man” anymore; yet, he is now a “man”. The internal aging process continues.
