Civilisation

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    We don't have to tell you how great it is to stick a CD in your new fangled hi-fidelity stereophonic listening system, or how advanced one feels when your car stereo sucks the shiny 12cm music thing into the dash as if by magic! (It's actually magic, but THEY don't want you to know that...)

    You already know the joy.

    But, when you get this baby you'll be bringing home a beautiful, lovingly designed, three-fold digipak that'll make most of your friends and 43% of your enemies wet their pants in jealousy. There's also a gorgeous 16 page booklet containing all the words so you'll already be one up at the local karaoke bar/club/festival.

    It's basically like bringing home a new child... But, better.

lyrics

What is this pseudo-semi-lifestyle apparition that we have
Blind beyond all common sense we kill what we don’t understand

Lovers, but there’s no love in it
Bleed ’til there’s no blood in it
Stuck with this tag of humanity when we all know that’s a crock of shit

Coming down from this blessed union of the pauper and the beast
'Cause, you think that you’ve got money but your right hand is a thief

Godly, but there’s no god in it
Blameless like there’s no blame in it
Stretched out between four corners and left drying in the heat

I lay the blame at your feet

Build up a towering, glory, one-world nation governed by your hand
Where we should scream in joyous passion while we’re moved by your demands

Holy, like there’s no holes in it
Soldiers, but there’s no soul in it
Stuck with this civilisation when we all know that’s a crock of shit

I’ll take the blame for it

"McBride is the voice that races ahead excited, Woller is the anchor; he pulls back just a tad – together they find the perfect place to pitch and rest each song... each track [is] strong – no duds"
Simon Sweetman, Dominion Post

“There's no escaping just how good this album is”
Mike Alexander, New Zealand Herald
