High Civilization

 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
 When 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
  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
