If Bob Dylan was writing on topical issues today I believe he would express something in this vein. For the record I am preaching to myself as well. James
THE WORLD WE LIVE IN (THERE'S STILL TIME) LYRICS: Aug 3, 2008
It’s time to wake and face the plight
See the world of wrong and right
where your deeds are done.
We live and breathe by what we’ll reap
The hours spent, the things you keep
When all is done
You pay no attention to
Men behind the curtains who
Pull the wool over your eyes
This may be the world you live in
But it ain’t mine.
It’s time to seek to understand
How all the world is one at hand
And home to all
To know your life depends upon
What others do, and on and on
So heed the call
But you pay no attention to
Men behind the curtains who
Pull the wool over your eyes.
This may be the world you live in
But it ain’t mine.

In your heart you know these words ring true
You must change your way, start anew.
To embark upon the chosen path
where you will find your way to peace, at last.

Humanity’s one strand on the web of life
The grander plan from time beyond
Our fate is sealed in what we do now,
The things you think, the things you choose.
We all belong
This may be the life you’re living
This may be the chance you’re taking
Well, this may be the chance you’re given
This may be a life worth living
And there’s still time…To change your way.
