“Equality,” I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow
Dylan is reflecting on his past protesting and calling for “equality” in the context of the 1960s civil rights movement etc.. But he doesn’t feel like his words have any real meaning. They are like a wedding vow — something that you just recite because you have to.
