Eve Of Destruction Lyrics

Eve Of Destruction (明日なき世界) - Barry McGuire

The eastern world it is explodin'

Violence flarin' bullets loadin'

You're old enough to kill

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 feel the fear

That I'm feeling today

If the button is pushed

There's no running away

There'll be noone to save

With the world in a grave

Take a look around you boy

It's bound to scare you boy

But 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 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

Tehn take a look around

To Selma Alabama

Ah you may leave here

For four days in space

But when your eturn

 

It's the same old place

The poundin' of the drums

Th 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

Ah you don't believe

We're on the eve of destruction

Ah you don't believe

We're on the eve of destruction
