"Zeitgeist" as written by and John Osbourne Tony Iommi....
Astral engines in reverse
I'm falling through the universe again
Down among a dead mans vision
Faded dreams and nuclear fissions span

The strings of fear they are holding up the race
The puppets falling to the ground
The love I feel as I fly endlessly through space
Lost in time I wonder will my ship be found

On this sinking ship I travel
Faster than the speed of life
Not so super nova burns
The black holes turn and fade from sight

The strings of fear they hide within the human race
The answers buried underground
The love I feel as I fly endlessly through space
Lost in time I wonder will my ship be found

And very soon
The boundless moon
Will show us light
And as we crash
We'll pray and kiss
And say goodnight
Goodnight

    My InterpretationSuch a diverse and amazing song... One of my favorites off the new album.

    Zeitgeist, by definition, is the primary thought or idea during a certain time period.

    I believe the message shows an awful zeitgeist (thought) carried through troubling times- "On this sinking ship I travel, Faster than the speed of life, Not so super nova burns, The black holes turn and fade from sight." But the person carries through it.
    I also think that maybe a greedy group of people that want to continue the zeitgeist for personal gain- "The strings of fear they are holding up the race, The puppets falling to the ground, The love I feel as I fly endlessly through space, Lost in time I wonder will my ship be found?"
