The old world lies
better not to be mislead
the old world has eyes
peeping out the back of its head

Magellan and Columbus signed our death warrants
dealing out the back of merchant ships
sugar cane and spices made the worst of us
chains rattled all across the sea

The old world lies
better not to be mislead
the old world has spies
creeping out the back of its shed
