Wake up in a strange land
One of forty thieves
And I see for the first time
Just what you believe

I go down to the market
Where I can buy or sell
And I listen to the chanting
And all the lies that wise ones tell

They say, "East is east, west is west"
Two different colors on the map
We say, "Break the line, chew the fat"
Keep moving out into the gap

Beggars in the backstreet's
There for all the world to leave
It's you that's begging for attention
Well it's all the same to me

And I won't ask permission
Not from teachers or from kings
'Cos I can see for myself
Well all the pain that you will bring

When you say, "East is east, west is west"
Two different rhythms to the map
You say, "Break the line, chew the fat"
Keep moving out into the gap, hey

Move, move, move, move
Let's move, let's move, let's move, let's move
Let's move, let's move, let's move, let's move
Let's move, let's move, let's move, let's

East is east, west is west
Two different colors on the map
You say, "Break the line, chew the fat"
Keep moving out into the gap

Can you smell the perfume
Of a hundred thousand years?
Dare you look into the eyes
That hide a hundred million tears?

Oh, there's no need to be so frightened
Of all the figures in the night
'Cos we shared the same emotions
And no one's wrong and no one's right

When they say, "East is east, west is west"
Two different colors on the map
We say, "Break the line, chew the fat"
Keep moving out into the gap

They say, "East is east, west is west"
Two different colors on the map
We say, "Break the line, chew the fat"
Keep moving out into the gap

They say, "East is east, west is west"
Two different rhythms to the map
We say, "Break the line, chew the fat"
Keep moving out into the gap
