Lyrics

The eastern world It is exploding Violence flaring Bullets loading You're old enough to kill But not for voting You don't believe in war What's that gun you're toting And even the Jordan River Has bodies floating 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 fears That I'm feeling today If the button 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 coagulating I'm sitting here Just contemplating 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 disintegrating This whole crazy world Is just too frustrating 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 pounding 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 Mmm, no, no, you don't believe We're on the eve of destruction
