Civilisation

Civilisation - lyrics Cas Greenfield,

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, we fall - 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 have brought

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…
