Barry Mcguire – Still On The Eve Of Destruction lyrics

Well the Western World is in danger
We the People have become like strangers
Taking polls and opinions while the fabric decays
For the greed of the few how much the innocent pays
And the children are watching, you can hear how the pray

And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
How you don't believe we're still on the eve of destruction

Think of this green Earth, a tropical rainforest
And take a look around to the Sahara Desert
We wanna cut it down, burn it to the ground leave barren and waste
Till there's no room for living, animals, rivers or lakes
And there's nothing to stop it but a miracle of faith

And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
Said you don't believe we're still on the eve of destruction
Now you don't believe we're still on the eve of destruction

I know you understand what we're trying to say
Can't you see the madness that's lead up to today?
We believe it's time for a change, for a new golden age
Where the business' life runs in harmony with nature
For nature reflects the beauty within ourselves
And this changin' attitude would ring out the Liberty Bells
For the hungry and the homeless and the helpless as well

And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
Saying you don't believe we're still on the eve of destruction
Oh you don't believe we're still on the eve of destruction

At the source of silence, we'll sings songs of creation
Transcending the boundaries of our soul's imagination
You can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation
Cuz the truth is in Love, Freedom and Cooperation
Let there be peace in your heart, that's all right, that's where it starts
Let there be peace tonight, in all the Nations
For the music of life is in (our last deliberation?)

And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
Saying you don't believe we're still on the eve of destruction
No, no, no you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
