Bob Dylan Lyrics - Political World Lyrics

rate me

We live in a political world,

Love don't have any place.

We're living in times where men commit crimes

And crime don't have a face

We live in a political world,

Icicles hanging down,

Wedding bells ring and angels sing,

clouds cover up the ground.

We live in a political world,

Wisdom is thrown into jail,

It rots in a cell, is misguided as hell

Leaving no one to pick up a trail.

We live in a political world

Where mercy walks the plank,

Life is in mirrors, death disappears

Up the steps into the nearest bank.

We live in a political world

Where courage is a thing of the past

Houses are haunted, children are unwanted

The next day could be your last.

We live in a political world.

The one we can see and can feel

But there's no one to check, it's all a stacked deck,

We all know for sure that it's real.

We live in a political world

In the cities of lonesome fear,

Little by little you turn in the middle

But you're never why you're here.

We live in a political world

Under the microscope,

You can travel anywhere and hang yourself there

You always got more than enough rope.

We live in a political world

Turning and a'thrashing about,

As soon as you're awake, you're trained to take

What looks like the easy way out.

We live in a political world

Where peace is not welcome at al,

It's turned away from the door to wander some more

Or put up against the wall.

We live in apolitical world

Everything is hers or his,

Climb into the frame and shout God's name

But you're never sure what it is.
