The Lyrics

Another updated classic Dylan tune. The art of allusion is very complicated in the scheme of things. As always, comments are welcome! (How many references can you identify in the lyrics?)
I was in a current lifetime; in a land filled up with fools...
They shot the girl in the head because she was attending school!
You can listen to their lying peace as peace they have forsworn...
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

And in the fair land of Eirinn, they are quite in a fix...
Where six and twenty of the free demand the other six!
As the IRA and UDA are fighting to be warm
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

While ne'er a word was spoken, there was so much said
I'll bleed and suffer endlessly for just a bite of bread!
I'll fight your wars eternal if you give to me the hordes...
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

I was burned out preaching peace or hoping violence would fail...
So many Gods and illusions along a well made trail
Hunted like a heretic skulking through the corn...
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Suddenly I was confronted in these brutal and savage lands...
Color of skin still is a sin in the land of Krugerrands!
Apartheid and still hatred exists behind those horns...
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Now David and Solomon are denied along with Saladin...
Will there ever be ANY peace when all are stained with Sin?
Just to think that we're all human, from the day that we are born...
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

What the despot grinds beneath his boots the preacher tries to raise..
But nothing really matters regarding human malaise....
Try to raise yourself up high enough, high above the swarms..
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

I've seen newborn ideas squandered into dust...
The strongest steel is only as good as the weakest amount of rust
Man strives to build for eternity but faliure is the norm...
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

In the United Nations, they tried to ameliorate...
but legislated for violence and justified the hate!!
Will a country without people soon be the new norm?
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm".

Well I'm surviving at this moment but soon. I'll cross the line...
My writing walk's a razors edge will it be accepted at some time...
If I could only redo some things I messed up bad before...
"Come in" she said
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."
