The Lyrics

Song inspired by a protest against a curfew imposed on young people in Los Angeles in 1966. Steven Stills raced home to write the lyrics. Like Phil Sloane's "Eve of Destruction", the words are still timely.
There's nothing happening here
We have lost everything we hold dear
There's a man with a mask over there
Telling you that's what you must wear

It's time to stop, children, close the school
Nobody can use the swimming pool

There's lines in sand being drawn
Everyone's right and Donald is wrong
Old people being confined
Cut off from friends and family, they lose their minds

Every day on TV stats are read
In another week we'll all be dead

Country swelters in the heat
Thousand cops in retreat
Chanting throngs are preparing to fight
Mostly shout, "Ashamed to be white"

While in Chi-town death tolls mount
That's the way to show that Black lives count

Paranoia and grief
Locked down again, no relief
Citizens getting afraid
BLM march, and Antifa raid

Will it ever stop, people? Answer found
Founding Father statues falling down

Is it gonna stop, virus? Vaccine found
Side effects will put us in the ground

Ever gonna stop, riots, at our door?
Could this be the start of civil war?

Think it's time we stop, people, end the hate
Starting to believe that it's too late
