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 savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a...

    A great eye opening song by Bob Dylan [Robert Zimmerman] in ''The Times they are a-changin'' for what cause? i always asked myself in our American Western Democracy with concern and worry for the future ever since the ''Jesuits'' infiltrated the revolution for the American Independence day of 1776 to divide the 13 colonies of British control away from the influence of the Anglo Saxon Church of England for a easier control with the Crypts that practiced Christianity as a cover for their agenda that has not stopped to change their ways by the American Civil War, World War1, World War2 and stayed on course headlong into Zionism that is still taking place today with the change of times. The beginning of the 60's was a fast and dangerous political struggle that was going on with the Russian missile crisis in that our pres. John F. Kennedy eventually got us out of a possible nuclear war, while the American war in Vietnam was still going on and around this same time we lost our pres. John F. Kennedy by assassination. Between the cold war with Russia and the war in Vietnam, along with the coming of the civil rights movements at home that was to take place in the cultural Marxism of terrorism that was on the move to empower and indulge the youth with drugs,sex and music with all kinds of philosophies by the intellectuals to radicalize the youth to change them by this new cultural revolution that was taking place to comfort us with it's addictions to participate, or you could be left behind. Many parents during the 60's like now were confused and many were left behind to figure out what the hell is going on while listening to conspiracy theories on radio and t.v about Lee Harvey Oswald if he was used as a patsy that was influenced with help that had something to do with the assassination that evolved into something bigger to murder the Pres. This took some people into the Bible days to read for some answers for why ''The Times they are a-changin'' in the power struggle 4 some ''one'' who changed bible verses and like the 4 words from the verse used in ''JEREMIAH 11:9 for the Zionist course that says ''and The Lord said unto me a conspiracy is found among the ''men of Judah'' {VATICAN] and among it's inhabitants of ''Jerusalem''[ROME] towards the One world Order for someone to take back the seat on the new Temple they want to build in Jerusalem for him to be put there on top again.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    this dylan song is as revelant today as it was in the early 60s. it's revelant to every major political event, war or threat of war, scandel-nuclear arms-tragedies that affected the world, but that has it's place in a hard rain,. basically in an ever changing world, the way we live and act is also constantly changing and we either change with the times or we are left behind.it's a warning word not a threat and dylan as usual said it better than anyone did or will

    Your asking me for my interpretation is the interpretation for The Times They Are A Changin'. He prophetizing the coming changes in America when the traditional virtues will be replaced with Tolerance and Equality. It's the Revolt of the Masses" that he's writing about where the average person takes control of civilization. The self satisfied masses no longer listen to their betters, their parents, or the past.
    Anyone who disagrees with the mass of humanity will be crushed or eliminated. Who am I to interpret this song? The lyrics answer this question for you.
