    Harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding, no more falsehoods or derisions, golden living dreams of visions, mystic crystal revelation, and the mind's true liberation

    The world you describe above is the world of children, as they are pure and good, but somehow they are forced to "grow up" in a world ruled by dysfunctional adults, who ask them to check their purity at the door, do as they are told, and not question the double standards that abound around them.

    We, starved, look at one another short of breath, walking proudly in our winter coats wearing smells from laboratories, facing a dying nation: a moving-paper fantasy, listening to the new-told lies, with supreme visions of lonely tunes.

    This sounds like the lyrics to a really corny 80's era song.

    Yeah, it's got a nice rythm to it.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...
