Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?

    Think it must be a warning about war, or Nuclear War, and its' results?
    "Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Gone to graveyards, everyone." Bit like Big Yellow Taxi. Also seems to reflect the film The Day The Earth Stood Still.
