    Barry McGuire Eve of Destruction

    Half Flower 


    some days I feel luckier than ever to live in Canada .. 

    the world I used to know seems to have gone forever ...

    watching the news is hard to do ...  at times feel I will never be old enough to watch some things

    recent atrocities have chilled me to my very soul ..

    feeling more as if we were in the Middle Ages with such horrific acts of deliberate barbarism  ...

    this song keeps coming back to haunt me .. 






    "Eve Of Destruction"

    written by Sloan, P. F..



    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 see the fear that I'm feeling today?
    If the button is pushed, there's no running away
    There'll be none 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.

    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 poundin' 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 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
