(You Tube video: Bob Dylan performs his "Political World")

We live in a political world
Love donít have any place
Weíre living in times where men commit crimes
And crime donít 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 thereís no one to check, itís all a stacked deck
We all know for sure that itís real

We live in a political world
In the cities of lonesome fear
Little by little you turn in the middle
But youíre never sure why youíre 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 youíre awake, youíre trained to take
What looks like the easy way out

We live in a political world
Where peace is not welcome at all
Itís turned away from the door to wander some more
Or put up against the wall

We live in a political world
Everything is hers or his
Climb into the frame and shout Godís name
But youíre never sure what it is
