"Maps of the World" as written by and Bob Neuwirth John Cale....
May I help you, sir?
Yes, I'd like to buy a map, please.
What kind of map?
As up-to-date as possible, I'm thinking of doing a bit of traveling and I need the latest world atlas.
I'm sorry but we may be in a bit of trouble there. all the maps are changing so rapidly it's difficult to follow these days since the east has returned to the dance floor.
Yes, I sense a loss of azimuth here, a falling off the edge of the world as we know it, a scattering of temples, a wish for a more modern [Cairo], a more [divisive] equator, a more beautiful sun
A bluer sky, tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.

I'm leaving for home, leaving for home tonight. Gabon, Zaire, Congo, Rwanda. I'm leaving for home, leaving for home tonight. Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, insanitary.
The world changes partners to dance. poor Libya, so misunderstood. the mighty Zambezi, the windblown Kalahari, a wish for a more electronic mailbox, a more African nightmare, a more vigorous bur
Mozambique electronic, the armies of Namibia. Angola, who is your Cuba now? changed partners, the world wants to dance.

I'm leaving for home, leaving for home tonight. Somalia, equatorial guinea, Cameroon, Togo. I'm leaving for home, leaving for home tonight.
Tothigua, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Western Sahara.

The maidens of morocco, Burkina Faso the riches of Liberia, a stranger symbolism, a sand-storm of antiquities, a more beautiful sunset, a sparser continent, a bluer sky, a more disturbing rhythm
Angrier drum-beat.

I'm leaving for home, leaving for home tonight. Estonia, Latvia, Kazakhstan, Nashville. changed partners again, changed partners just for the night.
Ankara, Enseno and Madrid, twin cities, reno.

I'm leaving for home, leaving for home
