Hang On Tight…The Wild is Calling

“People today are trying to hang on to the dignity of man, but they do not know how to, because they have lost the truth that man is made in the image of God. . . . We are watching our culture put into effect the fact that when you tell men long enough that they are machines, it soon begins to show in their actions. You see it in our whole culture -- in the theater of cruelty, in the violence in the streets, in the death of man in art and life.”

― Francis A. Schaeffer, Escape from Reason: A Penetrating Analysis of Trends in Modern Thought

Hang On Tight…The Wild is Calling

 

Finally!...Escape from Reason!

Finally!...No gravity!

At long last, we’re out here floating…

Spaced out, meaningless debris.

 

Finally!...We’ve gone and done it!

Finally!...The Drift is on…

It’s the rubble that we’re left with.

We’re machines just going strong!

 

Hang on tight…The Wild is calling

We’re convinced it’s only “fair”.

Hang on tight…we’ve lost our footing.

Our Foundation’s now mid-air.

 

Up is down and out is in, son.

That’s the New Age freedom call.

You might say we’ve all weighed anchor.

Welcome to the free-for-all.
