This song is probably more relevant now than when it was first released in 1969, specifically due to everything that has been perpetrated against the will of the people since December of 2000 (stolen elections, illegal wars, signing statements, illegal domestic spying, torture, shredding of the constitution and elimination of civil rights )when it was overtly decided that the the voice of the people was no longer important.



  -Lock up the streets and houses
Because there ¡s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution ¡s here, and you know it’s right
And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together
