Transcript: You put a gun in my hand And you hide from my eyes And you turn and run farther When the fast bullets fly. Many Americans felt uneasy about the amount of money directed at Vietnam when the money could have been used at home to help the suffering Americans. This led to many "teach-ins" where students and teachers talked about government policy in Vietnam I just want you to know I can see through your masks. 60s Music Presentation This is probably referring to DOW chemical who built all the Agent orange on other bombs used during the Vietnam War. This company prompted a protest against themselves by University of Illinois students in 1967 What's it about? You that build the death planes And I'll stand over your grave 'Til I'm sure that you're dead. Masters of War by Bob Dylan 60s Music Project The writer most definitely not agree with the direction the country is headed in. Assuming that the song is referring to the government, one lyric is "And I hope that you die and your death'll come soon", and mentions that the government has no soul. If the writer/song wants the government to die, then one can assume that he does not agree with the country's direction. You that build all the bombs- The song is about the governments lies, so it is obviously anti-government. It talks about how the singer can see through the government's facade of putting guns in their hands and then running away, meaning the government telling soldiers to fight and then lying to them after they've already started the war. It thinks all the government does is destroy lives and future. It thinks that the government is only out for blood and has even lost the trust of God. Is your money that good Will it buy you forgiveness This song is representative of the 60s as a whole because much of the decade was spent protesting the war, which is related to the song talking about the government turning on the country during the war. It represents many ideals of the 60s such as anti-war, anti-government. It also talks about how the government wants them to think that they can win a war, when the author knows that's not true, which was a common feeling in the 60s. Does the Author Agree with the Direction that the Country is Headed? Major Lines This most likely refers to Boeing, the company that built around 700 aircrafts during the war. You fasten all the triggers For the others to fire Then you set back and watch When the death count gets higher What the Lines are Referring to:
