Eve of Destruction is a song by The Chemical Brothers featured in their ninth studio album, "No Geography". It contains vocals from Norwegian pop singer AURORA.

About the song, the English electronic duo said: "I saw [Norwegian alt-pop singer-songwriter] Aurora on TV, playing at Glastonbury, and I was blown away by the power of her voice and the raw feel she had. She came to the studio and we had such an inspiring time. She was so open to ideas and so full of ideas. She came up with Eve of Destruction as a character, this goddess of destruction. It starts with a discordant voice, but as the track grows, it turns into celebration. The response to this foreboding, forbidding nature of the lyric is to cut loose, to come together, go out and find a friend and be with other like-minded people.”[1]

Lyrics Edit

The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction (Human minds are simplified)
The eve of destruction (Sacrifice is justified)
The eve of destruction (Human minds are simplified)
The eve of destruction (Sacrifice is justified)
The eve of destruction (Human minds are simplified)
The eve of destruction (Sacrifice is justified)
The eve of destruction (Human minds are simplified)
The eve of destruction (Sacrifice is justified)
The eve of destruction (Human minds are simplified)
The eve of destruction (Sacrifice is justified)
The eve of destruction

Human minds are simplified
We can't afford the water
Sacrifice is justified
Everyone is left to die
Human minds are simplified
Keep runnin', keep runnin'
Sacrifice is justified
Keep runnin', keep runnin'

Maybe I'll find a friend
Maybe I'll find a friend
Maybe I'll find a friend
To spend the weekend

Brothers and the suicide
What's to try out? Hear me now
He guideline, he guideline
Eve of destruction

Maybe I'll find a friend
Maybe I'll find a friend
Maybe I'll find a friend
To spend the weekend

[?]

Maybe I'll find a friend
Maybe I'll find a friend
Maybe I'll find a friend
To spend the weekend

The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
The eve of destruction
