Cryin' in the streets
They run for their lives
How can you lead them to Heaven?
They don't realize

Children of the night
How far can we fall?
That which we say is forever
Ain't no time at all

Father and the son
Not too young to be old
Reach out for each other when the world goes cold
Feel so good to be home

Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Civilization

Everything for us to see
The ultimate society
Keeper of the sword
You fight for your rights
How can you live for the hour
There's no yesterday?

Dyin' in the streets
Your number, your name
All that which keeps us together
Is bringing us the pain

Thunder of the guns
Comes the criminal mind
Working for the power of the evil eye
We are never alone
Uncivilized

My high civilization
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Civilization

New York, Paris, Tokyo
Vienna to Berlin
Baby, don't know you
L.A., Rome, Afghanistan
Cairo to Iran
No city can hold you
There's no one in Avalon to show you
Minutes into seconds are you ready for the end?

My high civilization
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?

Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?

Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
My high civilization?
Are you ready for
