Bob Dylan - "Licence To Kill" lyrics

Man thinks 'cause he rules the earth he can do with it as he please
And if things don't change soon, he will.
Oh, man has invented his doom,
First step was touching the moon.

Now, there's a woman on my block,
She say who gonna take away his license to kill'
She just sit there as the night grows still.

Now, they take him and they teach him and they groom him for life
Sell his body like they do used cars.
And they set him on a path where he's bound to get ill,
Then they bury him with stars,

Now, there's a woman on my block,
Now, he's hell-bent for destruction, he's afraid and confused,
She just sit there facin' the hill.
She say who gonna take away his license to kill'

And his brain has been mismanaged with great skill.
All he believes are his eyes
But there's a woman on my block,
And his eyes, they just tell him lies.

She say who gonna take away his license to kill'
Sitting there in a cold chill.
Ya may be a noisemaker, spirit maker,

That might be all that you got
Heartbreaker, backbreaker,
Leave no stone unturned.
May be an actor in a plot,
'Til your error you clearly learn.

Now he worships at an altar of a stagnant pool
And when he sees his reflection, he's fulfilled.
Oh, man is opposed to fair play,

He wants it all and he wants it his way.
She say who gonna take away his license to kill'Now, there's a woman on my block,
She just sit there as the night grows still.
