Words and music by Graham Nash and Stephen Stills
We're all on our own
Look at us all
How can we not raise
A voice
Against the madness
There isn't the time
To worry or wait
'Cause only the young
Can carry the weight
And face the silence
Chorus:
Do we run
Do we stop
Do we lie down?
I think not
There is an answer
That we've got
We are not helpless
The vision will stand
As blindness will fall
Now we must look
For the light
In the darkness
Chorus:
Do we run
Do we stop
Do we lie down?
I think not
There is an answer
That we've got
We are not helpless
