soul of the age

there is no law that says we have to think
in clear and sharp direct and honest mode
no reason ever just to break the code
that would in other worlds drive us to drink
our minds and hearts are always on the blink
we can't bear up under the normal load
and thoughts are ever ready to explode
the message is not hidden in the ink
not for us now the easy truths of day
instead the terrors of the highest heat
until the mind sinks under the vast weight
we are the losers for we've lost our way
our bodies are worth less than nought as meat
and when we leave we will go forth as freight
