Keb' Mo' – For What It's Worth lyrics

There's something happening 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

I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Somebody talk to me

What a field day for the heat
Million people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, 'Hooray for our side'

I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

[Incomprehensible] yeah

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line and the man will come and take you away

We better stop, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Stop, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Take a look around
Taking control of the situation
