Heideroosjes – Western Civilization lyrics

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
