The eastern world, it is explodin
Violence flarin bullets loadinYou抮e old enough to kill, but not for votinYou
Don抰 believe in war, but what抯 that gun you抮e totinAnd even the Jordan River
Has bodies floatin
But you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don抰 believe
We抮e on the eve
Of destruction.

Don抰 you understand what I抦 tryinto say
Can抰 you feel the fears I抦 feelintoday?
If the button is pushed, there抯 no runninaway
There抣l be no one to save, with the world in a grave
Take a look around you boy
It抯 bound to scare you boy

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don抰 believe
We抮e on the eve
Of destruction.

Yeah, my blood抯 so mad feels like coagulatinI抦 sitting here just contemplatin
You can抰 twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
Handful of senators don抰 pass legislation
And marches alone can抰 bring integration
When human respect is disintegratinThis whole crazy world is just too
Frustratin
And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don抰 believe
We抮e 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抯 the same old place
The poundinof the drum, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead, but don抰 leave a trace
Hate your next-door neighbor, but don抰 forget to say grace
Andtell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
You don抰 believe
We抮e on the eve
Of destruction
Mm, no no, you don抰 believe
We抮e on the eve
Of destruction.
