Barry Maguire - Eve of Destruction

The eastern world, it is exploding
Violence flariní, bullets loadiní
Youíre old enough to kill, but not for votiní
You donít believe in war, but whatís that gun youíre totiní
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatiní

But you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you donít believe
Weíre on the eve
of destruction.

Donít you understand what Iím tryiní to say
Canít you feel the fears Iím feeliní today?
If the button is pushed, thereís no runniní away
Thereíll 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 donít believe
Weíre on the eve
of destruction.

Yeah, my bloodís so mad feels like coagulatiní
Iím sitting here just contemplatiní
I canít twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
Handful of senators donít pass legislation
And marches alone canít bring integration
When human respect is disintegratiní
This whole crazy world is just too frustratiní

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you donít believe
Weíre 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, itís the same old place
The poundiní of the drums, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead, but donít leave a trace
Hate your next-door neighbor, but donít forget to say grace
AndÖ tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
You donít believe
Weíre on the eve
Of destruction
Mm, no no, you donít believe
Weíre on the eve
of destruction.

The air was thick like honey
Looking from the room
The room had open windows
To let the springtime through
Evening stood by watching
At the side of summer's promise
The flowers in her garden
Were the envy of her friends

How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end?
How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end?

The smoke hung on the skyline
The city fell in silence
The sunset ripe and mellow
Was the light to write some thoughts by
Her children watched for father
From their window in the wall
Said a prayer for Grandpapa
And maybe many more
Somewhere in the distance
On a road so far away
I heard the sound of life
Though the people left for home

Three birds flew off a building
Standing proud against the sky
Many more flew with them
Spiralled upward like laughter
Faster, harder,
They rose up in a column
Hundreds upon hundreds
Twice that many wings beat
Four miles across
Stretched a million miles high
The living pulsing column
In the lady of the sky
Feathers thrashed together
Locked in that huge one
I knew no-one could see it
And now that it was gone
I rubbed my eyes and tried to find
A reason for the flight
Exodus, escape, or was it just for me to see
Like the mating of the earth and air
Like water is to flowers
The envy of her friends
How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end?
