Eve of destruction, tax deduction.
City inspectors, bill collectors.
Mod clothes in demand.
Population out of hand.
Suicide, too many bills, hippies movin’ to the hills.
People all over the world are shoutin’
“End the war!”
And the band played on.
Lyrics from “Ball of Confusion (That’s What The World Is Today)” by The Temptations, 1970.
