Rise Against – For What It's Worth lyrics

[Originally by Buffalo Springfield]

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, listen, 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, listen, 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

Now you better stop, listen, 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
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

Now you better stop, listen, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Now stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going...
You better stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
