"For What It's Worth" as written by and Stephen Stills....
There's something happening in here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling 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 speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

You better 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 carrying signs
Mostly say, “Hooray, for our side”

Think you better stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going
You better stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

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

You better stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going
You better stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going

You better stop, people, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going
You better stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

There's something happening in here
