Europe broke the world in its collisions

The end of music, Mahler’s sorrowed vision
The suffering  he both prophesied and felt
What music might replace the great tradition?

Atonal works of Schoenbergh met derision
Would Stravinsky’s Firebird our hearts melt?
The death of music, Mahler’s sorrowed vision

To the masses came a huge concession
With rock and pop and blues we are  now filled
What kind of music might replace the great tradition?

Europe broke the world in its collisions
Destruction that they claim was never willed
The death of music, Mahler’s sorrowed vision

God has left us  to our fantasies, our visions
Not on the Cross but here in Europe  he was killed
What music can connect to great   tradition?

Change perceptions, change our human will
Or we will die in paying off the bill
The end of music, Mahler’s sorrowed vision
What music could replace the great tradition?
