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 no one 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.

Engineer Bones Howe , P.
