kuhlKuhl’s Civilisation – words & music by Stroud’s Kuhl

From the forthcoming album: The Circus Of Outrageous
www.ubertanz.com

We rise…

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Nation to nation, who can you trust?
Clouds in the heavens, rivers of rust
Fear in the valleys – hate, envy, lust
Civilisation

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Brother to brother, there’s no one to trust
Sulphourous horizons of the unjust
The voice of the people silent and hushed

Civilisation

Order from chaos,
Create or destroy
Gentleness? violence?
Divide and deploy
Knowledge the pathway
Of sympathy’s man
We must learn from history
It’s all part is the plan…

We rise…

Civilisation

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Nation to nation, who can you trust?
Clouds in the heavens, rivers of rust
Fear in the valleys going for bust
Civilisation

No one is safe
Time is so short
The hunter the hunted
Survival the sport
We must rise against the forces of darkness wrought
There is power in beauty in the songs we bought
Bringing order to chaos, we create not destroy
We fight hatred with love
What we learn makes us strong
We crush the spirit in the rivers of blood
This is not what we’re here for…
There is nothing more powerful than love!
Civilisation

We rise…

    The quote used in Civilisation was spoken by Sandra Ireland. Here is the quote in full:

    “Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short.
    ? Elizabeth Goudge, Green Dolphin Street
