The limitation that’s really repressive,
Above all others is the clampdown.
Complete, conservative clampdown.
Are you upset by how inhibitory it is?
Does it tear you apart to see the clampdown so restrictive?

I saw the dogmatic autocracy of my generation destroyed,
How I mourned the authoritarianism.
Are you upset by how narrow-minded it is?
Does it tear you apart to see the authoritarianism so narrow?

How happy is the angry and outrageous censor!
Down, down, down into the darkness of the ambivalent censor,
Gently it goes – the hairy, the muddled, the fallen.
