New World

Album: Carry Fire (2017)

  • With songs we praise a happy landing
    On yet another virgin shore
    Escape the old world
    Embrace the new world
    Out here the immigrant takes all

    Across the planes and over mountains
    Put plight to all who came before
    They’re barely human
    It’s time to move them
    To let them kneel before the sword

    Ohh, ohh, ohh
    Ohh, ohh, ohh

    Uneducate the noble savage
    The great white father’s word is law
    Subjugate them to liberate them
    The poison pen the bloody sword

    Ohh, ohh, ohh
    Ohh, ohh, ohh

    [Guitar Interlude]

    Ohh ohh, uh uh uh, Ohh ohh
    Ohh ohh, uh uh uh, Ohh ohh
    Ohh ohh, uh uh uh, Ohh ohh
