                If you want to end war and stuff you got to sing loud.

                  One of my favs:



                  I wish that I could give you something fine and something proud
                  A history of struggle to emancipate the crowd
                  But all I give's a blessing take the shield down to the sea
                  Sacrifice tradition and save your family…

                    This Third Eye Blind song, "If There Ever Was a Time", was recorded to express support for the Occupy Wall Street protests, which took place in 2011:

                    "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood

                      This John Lennon song was written to protest the Vietnam War:

                      "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood
