Everything Is Broken Lyrics
Broken threads broken springs
Broken idols broken heads
People sleeping in broken beds
Ain't no use jiving
Ain't no use joking
Everything is broken.
Broken bottles broken plates
Broken switches broken...
this song might be in line with desolation row, but written in a much, much less mysterious way. they both seem to point out what's wrong with the world from Dylan's point of view. just as D.R. tells of people out of their real element and forced to be something else in a "white Rabbit" world. everything is broken just puts his opinions right on the table for everyone to see. there's no double meanings in this song. Bob is telling us, in my opinion this is what's causing the world's problems, and the deeper problem is we are doing nothing to change what's wrong! rather we would rather sit back and shake our heads saying "TSK, TSK,what a shame. you know somebody should really do something about this, as we watch ole Cronkite on the 7:00 news, an grabbing another beer
