Lyrics

These are strange days we live in The nights get even worse The poets died at midnight In a New York City hearse... And the news must make you crazy It has for so long And the streets are full of fear tonight And coming on strong... You know, they're holed-up in Atlanta Broke down in L.A. They went and sold out Detroit They put half the town away... From the West Texas border To the Carolina shore You can see it in the faces There's gotta be something more...

[CHORUS] Take the time to love someone Take the time to make amends Take the time to make a stand Take the time for your friends 'Cause you can't roll your own forever And somewhere, down the line You're gonna see that's all they give you So you might as well take the time... You know, they're laid off in Ohio The Heartland's under strain They're running scared in FLA And hiding out in Maine... The sons of true believers And the daughters of dreams It can shake you when you find out It ain't just what it seems... Now is the hour Tomorrow might be too late You gotta grab the moment You just can't hesitate... And you know that it's the children Gonna pay for it all And, like the man said 'A hard rain's gonna fall'... [repeat CHORUS]
