For What It's Worth

Lyrics: Stephen Stills
Music: Stephen Stills

Sung by Nicky Bluhm with Phil Lesh & Friends.

There's something happening here
But 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

It's time we 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 saying, hooray for our side

It's time we stop
Hey, 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
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

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

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