    Bob Dylan - "Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again

    Lyric:"He just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette"

    In a song that is surreptitiously full of cultural commentary while swathed in nonsense, Bob Dylan delivers one of his most compelling and hilarious lines in this track with dead-pan disregard. The obvious swap out of the subjects of "cigarette" and "eyelids" here creates layers of meaning that are impossible to decipher, as most Dylan lyrics are. Given earlier context from the song though, the implication of the line  is someone who uses others without regard for their subjectivity—a topic that endlessly plagued Bob. The image of some dude punching a smoking Bob Dylan is pretty odd, but the thought of him smoking Bobby D's eyelashes is even more bizarre.
