Stephen Stills



I lost my innocence over intolerance

All the indignities heaped on the black man

We went to church they all prayed for the white man

The cops and the preachers

Were most of 'em in the Klan

What's a kid s'posed to think when the adults

Are all such hypocrites impossibly smug



I have seen enough

I have seen enough of this

Had enough

Quite enough, I swear



The next generation, the woodstock nation

A little bit flaky, but no hesitation

Stop the war, it wasn't worth dyin' for

The paranoia of the cold warriors

Arrogant old men with domino theories

Fractured fairy tales tryin' to kill me



I have seen enough

I have seen enough of this

I have read enough

History to see right through this



You got outcast upset

People you never met

Locked in the basement

Hot-wired to the net

Isolated, infuriated

The punchline to the joke

Is how they are gonna smoke

Every last stuck-up snob ever dissed them

Look in their eyes how could you miss them



Ain't you seen enough

I have seen enough of this

I've had quite enough

Seen enough



We got dead-eyed, dead drunk

Dead stupid cyberpunks

Fed-up killer geeks

Gigabyte meth freaks

Home alone in a world of their own

Up all night in the thick of the fight

Fantasy combat, veteran psychos

Removed from reality by silicon diodes



Seen enough

I have seen enough of this

Have you read enough

So, you don't know nothin' about it



You got powerbook potentates

Pointedly obviate

Every opinion

They have about anything

Even if they don't know shit

Stay in the limelight

Got your own website

Got all the answers, ain't got a lick of sense

Practicing psychiatry without a license



Ain't you seen enough

Had enough of this

I have had enough

Ain't it bad enough for you yet



So you got overfed

Talking heads on television

Ignoring the obvious with pained expressions

Ask the ones that sell the damn guns

By the truckload every day

Fast as they can make 'em

What's a kid s'posed to think

When the adults

Refuse all accountability

When they fuck up



Ain't you seen enough

Ain't you had enough of this

Goddam tired enough

Have we done enough about this

I have seen enough
