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

End:                                           It’s time to occupy
                                                   It’s time to occupy
                                                   It’s time to occupy
                                                   It’s time to occupy
