E                             A            E                   A
 There's something happening here. What it is, ain't exactly clear
          E                     A            E              A
There's a man with a gun over there, tellin' me I got to beware

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

E                           A                  E                     A
 There's battle lines being drawn and nobody's right, if everybody's wrong
E                             A               E                  A
 Young people speaking their minds, a-getting so much resistance from behind

                     E          D
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound?
A                     C           E  A  E  A
Everybody look what's going down

E                         A       E                      A
 What a field day for the heat, a thousand people in the street
        E                     A            E                    A
Singing songs and a-carrying signs, mostly say, "Hooray for our side"

             E          D
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound?
A                     C           E  A  E  A
Everybody look what's going down

E                A     E                       A
Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life, it will creep
   E                          A                  E                       A
It starts when you're always afraid. Step out of line, the man comes and take you away

          E          D
We better stop, hey, what's that sound?
A                     C
Everybody look what's going
          E          D
We better stop, hey, what's that sound?
A                     C
Everybody look what's going
           E          D
You better stop, now, what's that sound?
A                     C
Everybody look what's going
