Eve Of Destruction - lyrics

playlist Playlist
The eastern world
It is exploding
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'
You're old enough to kill
But not for votin'
You don't believe in war
But what's that gun you're totin'
And even the Jordan River
Has bodies floatin'
But you tell me
Over and over
And over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction
Don't you understand
What I'm tryin' to say?
Can't you feel the fears
I'm feelin' today?
If the button is pushed
There's no runnin' away
There'll be no one to save
With the world in a grave
Take a look around ya boy
It's bound to scare ya boy
And you tell me
Over and over
And over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction
Yeah, my blood's so mad
Feels like coagulatin'
I'm sitting here just contemplatin'
I can't twist the truth
It knows no regulation.
Handful of senators
Don't pass legislation
And marches alone
Can't 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 don't believe
We're 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
It's the same old place
The poundin' of the drums
The pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead
But don't leave a trace
Hate your next-door neighbor
But don't forget to say grace
And, tell me over and over
And over and over again, my friend
You don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction
Mm, no no, you don't believe
We're on the eve of destruction
