P.F. Sloan - Eve of Destruction lyrics

The eastern world it is explodin' Violence flarin', bullets loadin' You're old enough to k** but not for votin' You don't believe in war, 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 trying to say? Can't you see the fears that I'm feeling today? If the bu*ton is pushed, there's no running away There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave Take a look around you, boy, it's bound to scare you, 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 sittin' here, just contemplatin' I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation Handful of Senators don't pa** 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! Ah, you may leave here, for four 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-neighbour, but don't forget to say grace And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend You don't believe we're on the eve of destruction No no you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
