    Verse 4. I always think of old people dying as humanity shedding skin.

    Well, every verse is fantastic. I'm drawn to verse 2, especially this part:

    And keep your eyes wide
    The chance won't come again
    And don't speak too soon
    For the wheel's still in spin

    Pay attention if you want to learn something. Keep your options open. Don't say that you know when you don't fucking know.

    It's always funny to read lyrics by Bob Dylan, because that's when you realize he was saying actual words.

    If my thought dreams, could be seen, they'd put my head, in a guillotine.

    Everybody said they'd stand behind me when the game got rough, but the joke was on me there was nobody even there to bluff.

    Verse 2 or 1.... more uncertain, less hopeful.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    To me, the song has such a strong unifying structure that I'm having a hard time really isolating any individual verse from the others. It's almost like a three-point essay. Intro, three topic paragraphs, conclusion. It's also very deeply connected to a specific time and place in history, to me.

    But if I have to choose, I guess I'll say verse 4. Something about young people taking the mantle from the previous generations and making the world they're growing into. And while that is always happening I think there was a particular flavor to the youth movement of the 60s that is captured in this song. I think about all those kids who ran away to Haight-Ashbury, believing they could change the world- and in some ways they really did. I wasn't alive then but I watched all the The Wonder Years episodes with Karen in them so I totally know.
