Eve of Deconstruction

And tell me
Over and over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe
We're on the eve of deconstruction
Mmm, no, no, you don't believe
We're on the eve of deconstruction

All the Bannons are a flyin'
All the signs are a pointin', pointin'
Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say
Can't you feel the fears I'm feelin' today?
If the button is pushed, there's no runnin' 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
Look whose finger is on the button, boy
Look whose finger is on the button!

And you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve of deconstruction

Look at all the politicians a plottin'
Look at Putin come a knockin'
The American infrastructure deconstructin'
Look at all the cabinet choices
Look at all the scandals explodin'
Look at all the Tweetin', my boy
Yeah my blood's so mad feels like coagulatin'
I'm sitting here just contemplatin'
I can't twist the truth it knows no regulation
Handful of senators don't pass good 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 deconstruction!

Have a good 4th of July......and,
With apologies to Barry McGuire
