tell me, Who Are You?

The brilliant Karl Wallinger gets Dylanistic on a prescient song well suited to these times...

Great find, Ed.

It's better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done.

Took a stab at the lyrics for ya. Btw Dylan has confessed he can't recall the man that dug this well.

Someone here ain't playing ball, they seem to want a fight, so you are in the battle zone at 6 o'clock tonight.
As you're waiting in the airport, you can phone your wife and kids, but you can't tell them where you're off to ('cause the news man already did).
Gonna save Truth and Democracy, and try to stay alive.
It's the battle of the century, here's hoping you survive!

It's the pollen of destruction from the battlefield of mutation floating over on the mistrial to the cities of the West.
Maybe sunspots caused the blindness, maybe someone crept up behind us,
maybe something deep inside us wants the opposite of best?
When you look into the mirror and you don't know who it is,
there's your neighbor in the background watching as you get undressed!

Some tactics on the TV, some talkin' in the street, but I just can't stop hearing all those angry marching feet:
It's the sound of something broken, it's the noise that you should fix, it is loud and it ain't jokin'.
It might blow you all to bits.
It's so hard to hold the panic (it's our evolution bug);
it's the dust in all the cracks that we have swept under the rug!

We're gonna mix our cold and hot meat, gonna find a barbecue, gonna rustle up some action, gotta taste the ethnic stew
With a logo and a soundbite, take a nibble at the truth –
it is written on a missile that is sticking through the roof
of a Muslim or a Christian or a Hindu or a Jew.
It is proof we should forgive them for they know not what they do.

Who's that in the hallway? What's the message here? Are we doing something special or just making it for beer?
Have we a purpose in the future? Are we blasted by the pace? If you open up the present, will it go off in your face?
Times a twisted little dancer, you can't tell her what to do,
Are you the problem or the answer, tell me: Who are you?

Sooo happy to go down this road again my friends? Did it lead somewhere 50 years ago? (Oh, you don't care... as long as we're traveling again in the right direction... lol) So ask the question, when will dissentotainment become passe once again?
