Words so fitting for everyone here to consider within themselves.

by Bob Dylan

Someones got it in for me, theyre planting stories in the press Whoever it is I wish theyd cut it out but when they will I can only guess. They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy, She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me. I cant help it if I`m lucky.

People see me all the time and they just cant remember how to act Their minds are filled with big ideas, images and distorted facts. Even you, yesterday you had to ask me where it was at, I couldnt believe after all these years, you didn`t know me better than that Sweet lady.

Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth, Blowing down the backroads headinsouth. Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth, Youre an idiot, babe. It`s a wonder that you still know how to breathe.

I ran into the fortune-teller, who said beware of lightning that might strike I havent known peace and quiet for so long I cant remember what its like. Theres a lone soldier on the cross, smoke pourinout of a boxcar door, You didnt know it, you didnt think it could be done, in the final end he won the wars After losin every battle.

I woke up on the roadside, daydreaminbout the way things sometimes are Visions of your chestnut mare shoot through my head and are makinme see stars. You hurt the ones that I love best and cover up the truth with lies. One day youll be in the ditch, flies buzzin` around your eyes, Blood on your saddle.

Idiot wind, blowing through the flowers on your tomb, Blowing through the curtains in your room. Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth, Youre an idiot, babe. Its a wonder that you still know how to breathe.

It was gravity which pulled us down and destiny which broke us apart You tamed the lion in my cage but it just wasnt enough to change my heart. Now everythings a little upside down, as a matter of fact the wheels have stopped, Whats good is bad, whats bad is good, youll find out when you reach the top Youre on the bottom.

I noticed at the ceremony, your corrupt ways had finally made you blind I cant remember your face anymore, your mouth has changed, your eyes dont look into mine. The priest wore black on the seventh day and sat stone-faced while the building burned. I waited for you on the running boards, near the cypress trees, while the springtime turned Slowly into autumn.

Idiot wind, blowing like a circle around my skull, From the Grand Coulee Dam to the Capitol. Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth, Youre an idiot, babe. Its a wonder that you still know how to breathe.

I cant feel you anymore, I cant even touch the books youve read Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishin I was somebody else instead. Down the highway, down the tracks, down the road to ecstasy, I followed you beneath the stars, hounded by your memory And all your ragin` glory.

I been double-crossed now for the very last time and now Im finally free, I kissed goodbye the howling beast on the borderline which separated you from me. Youll never know the hurt I suffered nor the pain I rise above, And I`ll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love, And it makes me feel so sorry.

Idiot wind, blowing through the buttons of our coats, Blowing through the letters that we wrote. Idiot wind, blowing through the dust upon our shelves, Were idiots, babe. Its a wonder we can even feed ourselves.
