  For What It's Worth

                                                  Written by Stephen Stills

 

 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 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

 Nobody's right if everybody's wrong

 Young people speakin' their minds

 A gettin' so much resistance from behind

 

 Time we stop, hey, what's that sound?

 Everybody look what's going down

 

 What a field day for the heat

 (Hmm, hmm, hmm)

 A thousand people in the street

 (Hmm, hmm, hmm)

 Singing songs and they carrying signs

 (Hmm, hmm, hmm)

 Mostly say, hooray for our side

 (Hmm, hmm, hmm)

 

 It's time we stop, hey, 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 come and take you away

 

 We better stop, hey, what's that sound?

 Everybody look what's going down

 We better stop, hey, what's that sound?

 Everybody look what's going down

 We better stop, now, what's that sound?

 Everybody look what's going down

 

 We better stop, children, what's that sound?

 

 Everybody look what's going down

 

OCCUPY

Written by: Greg Coleman

 

1st. Verse:                              Our voices have been silent far too long

                                                The 99% is growing strong

                                                Citizens are taking to the streets

                                                Sick and tired of suffer-ing defeat

 

2nd. Verse:                              Everybody needs to represent

                                                 Investigate the way the money’s spent

                                                               (It’s time to occupy)

 

 

 

3rd. Verse:                              This system is unfair and so unjust

                                                These conditions warrant a protest

                                                Accusing us of crying for handouts

                                                All the while you’re begging for bailouts

 

4th. Verse:                              We don’t really need your charity

                                                We only want the fairness that we need

                                                            (It’s time to occupy)

 

 

Bridge:                                     Can you feel it?

                                                  There’s something in the air

                                                  No more apathy

                                                  It’s time for us to care

                                                  A generation has suffered cause of greed

                                                  We’ve got to hit the streets

                                                  To get the things we need

 

4th. Verse:                                Americans are feeling so much pain

                                                  Fighting all the wars you start in vain

                                                  Claiming that were fighting to be free

                                                  Now we know they die for the money

 

5th. Verse:                                You don’t care how badly that we grieve

                                                   Cause you never send your families

                                                                  (It’s time to occupy)

 

 

 

Bridge:                                    No more sitting back

                                                 While you lie and cheat and steal

                                                 These changes are now permanent

                                                 Our discontent is real

                                                 Just keep the movement strong

                                                 We owe it to our youth

                                                 Don’t just occupy the streets

                                                 Let’s hit the voting booths

                                                   It’s time to occupy

                                                   It’s time to occupy
