What Am I Lyrics

What good am I if I’m like all the rest
If I just turn away, when I see how you’re dressed
If I shut myself off so I can’t hear you cry
What good am I?

What good am I if I know and don’t do
If I see and don’t say, if I look right through...

    A song about questioning and testing your faith ''through'' your False, more than your positive Ego that always wants you to do something that would make Others Ego and yours ''feel good'' and worthy by your works that would give you more meaning to your identity. To compare of doing ''NOTHING'' with your faith in God, let's just say, but that would only make your False Ego feel worthless and meaningless to you. Which god questions you if you're good enough if you don't give a helping hand to Others when needed. I don't think Dylan wanted us to rise and do something for Others like Hitler did, but we should have the right thinking in our minds before doing ''Anything.

    Dylan is paraphrasing from the book of James 2,2-14 -James- James 2-14,-...what shall it profit if any man say that he have faith, but he hath not works?
