Lyricist: Stephen Stills   Composer: Stephen Stills


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
Catching so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop
Children, 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 they're carrying signs
Mostly saying, "Hooray for our side"

I think 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

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?
You better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going
You better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going
You better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

What's that sound?
It's going down
What it's worth
What's that sound?
Oh, oh, oh
Going down
For what its worth
What's that sound?
Going down
For what its worth
What's that sound?
Hey hey hey
Going down
For what its worth
What's that sound?
