Eve Of Destruction

The eastern world, it is explodin.

Violence flarin, bullets loadin

Youre old enough to kill, but not for votin

You dont believe in war, but whats that gun youre totin

And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin



But you tell me

Over and over and over again, my friend

Ah, you dont believe

Were on the eve

of destruction.



Dont you understand what Im tryin to say

Cant you feel the fears Im feelin today?

If the button is pushed, theres no runnin away

Therell be no one to save, with the world in a grave

Take a look around you boy

Its bound to scare you boy



And you tell me

Over and over and over again, my friend

Ah, you dont believe

Were on the eve

of destruction.



Yeah, my bloods so mad feels like coagulatin

Im sitting here just contemplatin

You cant twist the truth, it knows no regulation.

Handful of senators dont pass legislation

And marches alone cant bring integration

When human respect is disintegratin

This whole crazy world is just too frustratin



And you tell me

Over and over and over again, my friend

Ah, you dont believe

Were on the eve

of destruction.



Think of all the hate there is in Red China

Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama

You may leave here for 4 days in space

But when you return, its the same old place

The poundin of the drum, the pride and disgrace

You can bury your dead, but dont leave a trace

Hate your next-door neighbor, but dont forget to say prayers



And tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend

You dont believe

Were on the eve

Of destruction

Mm, no no, you dont believe

Were on the eve

of destruction
