cheating…

remember cigarettes?

so i was tagged to participate in a 3-day lyrics challenge and thank you to Philosophy Through Photography for inviting.

i am cheating on this challenge because i am posting day two, before day one is over. my reasoning is that i may not be here tomorrow… well, i maybe here on earth… but absent on WP and before you know it… i will forget my obligations and fall short of completing what i started…

so i will finish what needs to get done… before i vanish. (there i go again, explaining myself for no reason.)

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

Songwriters: Stephen Stills

World! Honestly i am quite confused. Ethics are out the window. Some work is getting done. Behind closed doors, politicians sneaking cookies out of sealed drawers. Religion of sorts, calls for peace, while slitting throats. Citizens are finding privacy will not keep you out of jail. They pad the cell, to keep you alive. Paranoia creeping inside… scream while you can. They will find you and silence you in time.

not forgetting… share your favorite song… no need to tag in my world… your just it!
