Verses: E A
Chorus: E D A C

There's something happening here,
what it is, ain't exactly clear.
There's a man with a gun over there
tellin' me I 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 their minds,
getting so much resistance from behind.

I think it's time we stop, children, 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 carrying signs,
Mostly say, "Hooray for our side".

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

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

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound,
everybody look what's going down.
(Repeat and Fade)
