Essence of the Zeitgeist: Grungy, Unfulfilled perspective of the big picture, lack of depth perception. People are living life as empty shells. They do things in vain, never understanding the deeper meaning. They live life as empty shells, satisfied by the superficial. "He's the one/Who likes all our pretty songs/And he likes to sing along/And he likes to shoot his gun/But he knows not what it means"
