old world new world lyrics – inxs

natives wearing turquoise and silver
dirty dogs barking in the distance
ooh, people of a thousand tongues
i’m learnin’ the primitive rights
doin’ as the romans do

mt. kalais to mt. everest
then down to the river ganges
ooh, to follow your mighty past
we’re learnin’ the primitive rights
doin’ as the romans do

old world, new world
i know nothing, but i’ll keep dancing
old world, new world
i know nothing, but i’ll keep dancing

city’s crumble into the ocean
city’s gettin’ built in the sky
ooh, now we’re talkin’ digital
we’re learnin’ the primitive rights
doin’ as the romans do

millions playin’ at monopoly
rolling the dice of their life
ooh, i’m dancing and shakin’ hands
there learnin’ the primitive rights
doin’ as the romans do

old world, new world
i know nothing, but i’ll keep dancing
old world, new world
i know nothing, but i’ll keep dancing
old world, new world
old world, new world

ooh, nothing from older wise
than the movement till i die
but i keep listenin’, i keep listenin’
pan, shambala, judaism
hindu, christianity
muslim, buddism
atman of vedies, sun ray
astrology, voodoo
the great dream time
