"Old World New World" as written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Charles Farriss....
Natives wearing turquoise and silver
Dirty dogs barking in the distance
Oh people of a thousand tongues
I'm learning the primitive rights
I'm doing as the Romans do

Mt. Kalais to Mt. Everest
Then down to the River Ganges
Oh to follow your mighty past
We're learning the primitive rights
We're doing as the Romans do

Old world new world
I know nothing
But I'll keep dancing

City's crumble into the ocean
City's getting built in the sky
Oh now we're talking digital
We're learning the primitive rights
We're doing as the Romans do

Millions playing at Monopoly
Rolling the dice of their life
Oh I'm dancing and shaking hands
We're learning the primitive rights
We're doing as the Romans do

Old world new world
I know nothing
But I'll keep listening

Pan
Shambala
Judism
Hindu
Christianity
Masdic
Budism
Atman of Vedies
Sun Ra
Astrology
Voodoo
The Great Dream Time

    General CommentThis song quickly rose to being one of my two best-loved songs from the album. Along with "Don't Change", this was INXS at their finest.

    General CommentRecently my favorie song... Time passes by through the ages but human condition is still the same and people struggle with the same problems, they still don't understand the meaning of love and death, all relligions try to explain something but you will never know the truth "till you die".... but "you can listen", scout around and try to understand...
