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
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 say, hooray for our side
It’s 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
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, now, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rollin’
For to take my mother away
Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by Lord, by and by
There’s a better home a-waitin’
In the sky Lord, in the sky
I told the undertaker
“Undertaker, please drive slow
For this lady that you’re haulin’ Lord
I hate to see her go.”
Well I followed close behind
Tried to hold the family grace
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid herein the grave
I went back home, my house was lonesome
Cause my mother, she was gone
All my brothers, sisters, crying
What a home, so sad and lone
One by one the seats were empty
One by one they went away
Now my family, they are parted
Will they meet again someday
Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by Lord, by and by
There’s a better home a-waitin’
In the sky Lord, in the sky
