On the wheels of fire
But will bring us no reward
When her false idols fall
And cruel death surrenders
With its pale ghost retreating
Between the King and the Queen of Swords
There's another great Dylan song that provides some sort of an answer, Up To Me:
If I’d thought about it I never would’ve done it,
I guess I would’ve let it slide
If I’d lived my life by what others were thinkin,’
The heart inside me would’ve died
I was just too stubborn to ever be governed
By enforced insanity
Someone had to reach for the risin’ star,
I guess it was up to me
It is going to be up to each one of us. It's time to declare peace.
There is so much we need to do. So we need to do what we must. Each one of us needs to do what we can. We don't have time to fight about it!
That's what I think.
