The second OCCUPY UNPLUGGED featured an amazing positive song written for the Occupy movement by Stephan Jenkins, aka Third Eye Blind. Hundreds gathered round to hear the Occupy anthem, "If There Ever Was A Time"


"If There Ever Was a Time" - lyrics

"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

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
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 of won't mean a thing

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 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
everyone you go right now is Zuccotti Park
everyone you go right now is Zuccotti Park"

2.  I'm very happy to see 'Third Eye Blind' back, in this way..!
I just found out Stephan Jenkins is a contributer to The Huffington Post... I love this guy-look what he says about Gingrich..

I loved Third Eye Blind in the 90's..Their songs had meaning!
