Come gather round people wherever you roam and admit that the waters around you have grown and accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone if your time to you is worth saving then you'd better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone for the times they are a blazin'
Come writers and artists who prophesize with your zen the very essence of life one must defend we must call out the lies while earth can still spin and every living soul time is now naming our planet cannot allow further damage from men for the time they are a raging
Politicos and diplomats please heed the call actions abroad instigate your empire's fall the hungry and the poor ones are being killed in your squall the complicit left the battle stage decades ago but somethings gonna give your hate is rubbing us raw for the times they are a caged in
The politics of children they poison the land legislate back-scratching language favors e-cash trading hands the affects of their high game mugshot all living man if you'd just look into a mirror of uninformed decision your zero purchase precision supply and demand has turned us all into children being born without hands for the time's a sale in the making
Tax dollars add up to billions pay to subdue foreign man whose gods and whose hopes dont fit into our plans as violence becomes us and artiface our dope we expand annihilation to galactic scope as childish molesters dress up just like the pope and we accept lies in a hangknot rope for the times they are enslaving
The tune and first verse of this song obviously belong to Bob Dylan. The last four verses are entirely my words about what today looks like to me. This video was created on December 28th, 2004.

Taking Liberty is a re-written version of the Bob Dylan classic, "The times they are a changin'". It is not a cover version. Visitor has written four new verses "about what today looks like to me" while keeping the original first verse intact all but for one word. He has also renamed the song. The guitar arrangement has a bit more swing than the original. The video is hauntingly still and at peace contrasting the content of the lyrics and the song's naturally forlorn tone. It is beautifully done and should not be missed.
