We The People USA

Citizens Dedicated To Preserving Our Constitutional Republic

Remember this song ?- those of you around in the 60s? (just heard it again and it reminded me of just what was going on then - seems there is pattern here and now.)

1.   Eve of Destruction

Barry McGuire

Eastern world it is exploding
Violent flares and bullets loading
You're old enough to kill but not for voting
You don't believe in war but what's that gun you're toting?

And even the Jordan River has bodies floating
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
Well look at all the hate there is in Red China

Take a look around at Selma Alabama
You may leave here for four days in space
When you return it's that same old place
Love your next door neighbor but don't forget to say grace

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

Songwriters: EVE JEFFERS, MELVIN CHARLES BRADFORD, LEON HAYWOOD, MARSHALL MCQUEEN, BILL JR. WILLIAMS

substitute Europe for Eastern World, Iran, North Korea for Red China, California instead of Salma, Alabama and of course all the anti-trump characters instead of the anti-American soldiers fighting in Vietnam.  Seems rather prophetic, doesn't it.

In the year 2525, if man is still alive
If woman can survive, they may find
In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lie
Everything you think, do and say
Is in the pill you took today
In the year 4545
You ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to chew
Nobody's gonna look at you
In the year 5555
Your arms hangin' limp at your sides
Your legs got nothin' to do
Some machine's doin' that for you
In the year 6565
You won't need no husband, won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube

In the year 7510
If God's a coming, He oughta make it by then
Maybe He'll look around Himself and say
Guess it's time for the judgment day
In the year 8510
God is gonna shake His mighty head
He'll either say I'm pleased where man has been
Or tear it down, and start again

In the year 9595
I'm kinda wonderin' if man is gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothing

Now it's been ten thousand years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what, he never knew, now man's reign is through
But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight
So very far away, maybe it's only yesterday

Wow, I remember that one, too. Thanks for the memories. Kinda scary isn't it. (Both for the future, and being old enough to remember these songs.)

Rock Me On the Water

Oh people, look around you
The signs are everywhere
You've left it for somebody other than you
To be the one to care
You're lost inside your houses
There's no time to find you now
Your walls are burning
And your towers are turning
I'm going to leave you here
And try to get down to the sea somehow

The road is filled with homeless souls
Every woman, child and man
Who have no idea where they will go
But they'll help you if they can
Now everyone must have some thought
That's going to pull them through somehow
Well the fires are raging hotter and hotter
But the sisters of the sun are going
To rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Oh people, look among you
It's there your hope must lie
There's a sea bird above you
Gliding in one place like Jesus in the sky
We all must do the best we can
And then hang on to that Gospel plow
When my life is over, I'm going
To stand before the Father
But the sisters of the sun are going
To rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water, maybe I'll remember
Maybe I'll remember how
Rock me on the water
The wind is with me now
So rock me on the water
I'll get down to the sea somehow
