We call ourselves real civilized
But possession is our master
I think we're just paralyzed
Our greed is our disaster

Look at your lovely furcoat
Just eat your tasteful steak
Let's kill another Tiger
And call ourselves unique

You call it civilization
I call it rapacity
Don't you call us descent
'cause that's not what I see

We dump our nuclear garbage
In the name of our civilization
But there is not a bit of respect
In our great white Western Nation

Western Civilization? That would be a good idea
