For What It's Worth
There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I've got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
And nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking there minds
And getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, hey what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and a carrying signs
Mostly saying hooray for our side

It's time we stop, hey what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

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

We better stop, hey what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
