​For What It's Worth

This song is by Hugh Cornwell and appears on the album Footprints In The Desert (2002).

There's somethin' happenin' here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
A-tellin' me I've got to beware

I think it's time we stop. Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin' down.

There's battle lines bein' drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speakin' their minds
A-gettin' so much resistance from behind

I think it's time we stop. Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin' down

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singin' songs and a-carryin' signs
Mostly sayin' hooray for our side

It's time we stop. Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin' down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the MAN come and take you away

You better stop. Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin'
You better stop. Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin'
You better stop. Now, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin'
You better stop. Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin'
