Zeitgeist

Simon Ó Faoláin

Sinne atá suas 
i láthair na huaire,
Ní bhfaighimidne 
ár mbás choíche.

Diúltaím don dtaithí, 
diúltaím don gcuimhne,
Luím go lán-mhuiníneach 
idir basa na heolaíochta,

D’fhonn surfála trén saol 
ar feadh síoraíochta
lem’ chlár ar chúr 
ar bharr an chlog-chuair

Gan wipeout go brách,
fiú an wipeout mór.
