om op te kauwen...

Song after song [op Highway 61 revisited] adds up to the same basic statement: Life is an absurd conglomeration of meaningless events capsuled into the unnatural vacuum created by birth and completed by death; we are all living under a perpetual sentence of death and to seek meaning or purpose in life is as unrewarding as it is pointless; all your modern civilization does is further alienate man from his fellow man and from nature.

Irwin Silber - Topical song: polarization sets in; Sing out!, febr. / mrt. 1966
