Third Eye Blind – “If There Ever Was A Time”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gf45vXByCg

if there ever was a time, it would be now is all I’m saying

if there ever was a time to get on your feet and take it to the street

 cause you’re the one who’s getting played right now

 by the game they’re playing come on meet me down at Zuccotti park
oh where are the youth, we need you now
come speak the truth, come break it down
where are the youth, we need you now
if there ever was a time, it would be now
to make the masters hear this
if there ever was a time to get downtown
and get non violent and fearless
things only get brighter when you light a spark
everywhere you go right now is Zuccotti park
and news corps says you don’t have a plan
well sit down man, i’ll tell you again
the plan’s to stand together up to greed
and a tear gas can in a veteran’s face
won’t change the case
(chorus)
if there ever was a time, it would be now
for the rest of us
if there ever was a time it would be now
cause money and power are incestuous
a moment makes a movement
or it fades out in the dark
come on meet me down at Zuccotti park
and i saw a sign in the oakland spring
it said “occupy everything!”
or by and for and off won’t mean a thing

  1. Thank you, Bill. Well said as the message gets muddled, co-opted, and the weather colder. If there ever was a time, it would be now.
