Chris Whitley
New Lost World

When at last I was left for dead
the dissident sister took me in
underground at the edge of time
desire alone forgoes the crime

In the new
the crime in the new lost world
into the new
into the new lost world

She goes unscathed against the sky
empires and nations flyin by
over the hills the truths divide
desire alone to be her guide

Through the new
into the new lost world
through the new
into the new lost world

We trace them engines in the sand
we taste them tensions on the wind
divined to run a highway raw
desire alone against the law

In the new
the law in the new lost world
into the new
into the new lost world
