Third Eye Blind Shows Support for the Occupy Wall Street Movement with New Song

Third Eye Blind’s Stephan Jenkins has penned a track in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Jenkins, who’s been active for years in progressive politics, sees this as a galvanizing moment. “I hope it achieves its goals of starting new politics that are counter to the trend towards oligarchy that’s been increasingly foisted on us these last few years,” says Jenkins.

“If There Ever Was A Time” is a simple invitation to join the movement.

“I hope we flood this movement with music,” Jenkins says.

The song is available as a free download at facebook.com/ThirdEyeBlind. The band asks those who like the track to donate to Occupy 99.

“If There Ever Was a Time”
(Stephan Jenkins)

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

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
