#100) The World is Dead

Short were the days of imagination, and precocious the dreams of the modern youth

Rushed along by dark temptations, ruining the floors of old foundations

.

So much of little which has been said all comes down to the world is dead

Is rotting in the devil’s bed, and poisoning the scholar’s head

.

Long has innocence been denied, as sin to all has been prescribed

.

In wickedness their hearts do lie; torn from the tit the babes do cry

.

Again, so much of little said pays tribute to the world is dead

Corroding in the devil’s bed, polluting all the scholar’s head

.

Lost is their faith and fidelity, forsworn all the rules of morality

.

Madness is spread out so far and wide, in every child its roots now abide

.

Indeed, so much and little said, gives credence to the world is dead

.

Is buried in the devil’s bed, and has destroyed the scholar’s head
