oh-oo-oh high up in a chamber she painted pictures of the land that made her oh-oo-oh shadowed by a clock face the hands arrested at the time she came and when she peered outside she saw the birds so high that she made a wish to grow one day her own pair of wings she sailed long from afar to find herself in the world when in the wind she heard and island call and so she followed it and came ashore on a beach with a crowd ("we waited here for you") then a voice said it was true "we all prayed for a princess you're the one heaven sent" oh-oo-oh high up in a chamber she painted pictures of the land that made her oh-oo-oh just to remember for the memory got lost in the dark oh-oo-oh shadowed by a clock face the hands arrested at the time she came and though she showed the passing of the days eternally a child she would remain before she felt any fear the air escaped into silence she woke up lying in a gilded bed with half a dozen maids around her "we're keeping you safe in a tall place where you can see all the land you lead for us by god's decree hail to the girl our queen" as the nights ran together blurring into years her brushstrokes never disappeared oh-oo-oh high up in a chamber she painted pictures of the land that made her oh-oo-oh just to remember for the memory got lost in the dark oh-oo-oh shadowed by a clock face the hands arrested at the time she came and though she showed the passing of the days eternally a child she would remain until one day when a clatter rang through the hills they found her gone and a smashed-open windowsill a feather hung in the air and the once stopped clock was ticking on

about

A sequel to 2019’s EP Civilisation I, in which the band envisioned a historically-ambiguous alternate-reality, Civilisation II sees KKB continue to explore instinctive human tendencies across three tracks, all completely devised using vintage hardware.
