The Lyrics

The Third World it tis explodin',
population risin', forests goin',
they're old enough to breed but not for votin',
you don't believe in love, what's that kid you're totin',
and every last country has more kids growin',
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?
When environment goes, 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.

Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin',
I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin',
I can't stop the growth, it knows no regulation,
handful of Senators don't pass legislation,
and marches alone can't stop population,
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 kids there is in Red China!
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
Ah, you may leave here, for two weeks in space,
but when your return, it's the same old place,
the denial of trends, the growth and arms race,
they can bury their dead, but don't slow the pace,
deny you're the problem, 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.
