Détournement of the Song “Lenny Bruce” by Bob Dylan

Guy Debord is dead but his ghost lives on and on

Debord
Never did get any Golden Globe award, never made it to Synanon
He was an outlaw, that’s for sure
More of an outlaw than you ever were
Guy Debord is gone but his spirit’s livin’ on and on

Maybe he had some problems, maybe some things that he couldn’t work out
But he sure was funny and he sure told the truth and he knew what he was talkin’ about


Never robbed any churches nor cut off any babies’ heads
He just took the folks in high places and he shined a light in their beds

He’s on some other shore, he didn’t wanna live anymore

Guy Debord is dead but he didn’t commit any crime
He just had the insight to rip off the lid before its time
I rode with him in a taxi once
Only for a mile and a half, seemed like it took a couple of months
Guy Debord moved on and like the ones that killed him, gone

They said that he was sick ’cause he didn’t play by the rules
He just showed the wise men of his day to be nothing more than fools

Guy_Debord_Considerations
They stamped him and they labeled him like they do with pants and shirts
He fought a war on a battlefield where every victory hurts
Guy Debord was bad, he was the brother that you never had
