  1. when people school themselves to appear both very self-confident and intelligent, I tend to see words like "corpse evangelist" written in the bones of their frozen-smiles face, like I am seeing an expensive suit with no-one in it. All appearance. No substance. But then I am addicted to undisciplined improvisations. Especially in speech patterns. Momentary eclipses of reason are fleeting but fluctuating rapidly, he said, with a clarity in the air, like when the heaviness-in-the-weather breaks after a storm, then you are breathing in the highlands; echoes of the future; time out of mind…oh whatever. the climate exists in my brainwaves and externally simultaneously but yet I have been known to breathe incorrectly at almost every moment.

  2. he rode a Triumph 500.he obviously crashed it..in Liverpool a year or four ago….he did the national trust tour of The Beatles home's..on their mini bus …its a nice whine

  3. as i dance through the stars
    playing my guitar
    i was applauded by many
    the only reason that stars shine
    is i left my guitar behind
    i shall return for it shortly

  4. i had a list of commands
    i could not understand
    it came from heaven
    i must protect
    with most respect
    the things i have created

  5. This brilliant song encapsules the way Dylan reverses the words to create a different meaning,or an amusing skit to wonder at,.as here,'I was so much older then,I'm younger
    than that now'.Similarly,'He just smoked my eyelids,and punched my cigarette'(Stuck inside of Memphis),and many more,as you go through his catalogue.It's a trait often missed.

  6. Bob Dylan saw the writing on the wall over a half century ago when he wrote My Back Pages: How 'self-righteous' excess was beginning to creep into the minds of the Leftists of HIS day in their blind pursuit of Social Justice™ during the Civil Rights era: "Equality™ I spoke the word as if a wedding vow. Ah, but I was so much older than, I'm younger than that now"

    But people never REALLY listen to their "prophets" do they?
    Today we see the fruition of Dylan's insights into movement politics: 112 Genderz – The brainwashing of children into gender self-mutilation (in so-called 'Trans Movement') – the Refusal of african-amerikan communities to look WITHIN themselves for the cultural source of the savage violence of the inner-cities – The sheer Misandry and Sexism of modern-day "Feminists™" – and the new Racism aimed at people of European descent among other perversions of Leftist Identity Politics.

    "We'll meet on edges, soon, said I, proud 'neath heated brow"…..That divisive time is Our time. That time is NOW.

    Look at these lyrics and actually SEE what Dylan was trying to tell us so long ago!

    —————————–
    Crimson flames tied through my ears, rollin' high and mighty traps
    Pounced with fire on flaming roads using ideas as my maps
    "We'll meet on edges, soon, " said I, proud 'neath heated brow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
    Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth, "rip down all hate, " I screamed
    Lies that life is black and white spoke from my skull, I dreamed
    Romantic facts of musketeers foundationed deep, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
    Girls' faces formed the forward path from phony jealousy
    To memorizing politics of ancient history
    Flung down by corpse evangelists, unthought of, though somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now
    A self-ordained professor's tongue too serious to fool
    Spouted out that liberty is just equality in school
    "Equality, " I spoke the word as if a wedding vow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
    In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand at the mongrel dogs who teach
    Fearing not that I'd become my enemy in the instant that I preach
    My existence led by confusion boats, mutiny from stern to bow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
    Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats too noble to neglect
    Deceived me into thinking I had something to protect
    Good and bad, I define these terms quite clear, no doubt, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then I'm younger than that now

  7. Please upload the whole album. There’s a few other legendary tracks on there such as To Ramona, All I really want to do, and I don’t believe you (she acts like we never have met)

  8. How did the Byrds f*** up the lyrics so much? "Countless" fire on flaming roads? Romantic flanks of Musketeers? Sisters fled by confusion boats?
    What were they? High?
