The Time Has Come

“This song spoke to the younger generation that was fighting for civil rights, social justice and an end to the Vietnam War. The lyrics are somewhat ambiguous, but the constant repetition of the word "Time!" makes it clear that the song is a call to action.” (Songfacts)
Time has come today
Young hearts can go their way
Can't put it off another day
I don't care what others say
They say we don't listen anyway
Time has come today
(Hey!)

Oh
The rules have changed today (Hey!)
I have no place to stay (Hey!)
I'm thinking about the subway (Hey!)
My love has flown away (Hey!)
My tears have come and gone (Hey!)
Oh my Lord, I have to roam (Hey!)
I have no home (Hey!)
I have no home (Hey!)

Now the time has come (Time!)
There's no place to run (Time!)
I might get burned up by the sun (Time!)
But I had my fun (Time!)
I've been loved and put aside (Time!)
I've been crushed by the tumbling tide (Time!)
And my soul has been psychedelicized (Time!)

(Time!)
Now the time has come (Time!)
There are things to realize (Time!)
Time has come today (Time!)
Time has come today (Time!)

Time!
Time!
Time!
Time!
Time!
Time!
Time!
Time!
Time!

Oh
Now the time has come (Time!)
There's no place to run (Time!)
I might get burned up by the sun (Time!)
But I had my fun (Time!)
I've been loved and put aside (Time!)
I've been crushed by tumbling tide (Time!)
And my soul has been psychedelicized (Time!)

(Time!)
Now the time has come (Time!)
There are things to realize (Time!)
Time has come today (Time!)
Time has come today (Time!)

Time!
Time!
Time!
Time!
Yeah!
