Iggy Pop – New Atlantis Lyrics

New Atlantis Lyrics – Iggy Pop

Somewhere south of Alabama, and north of Cuba
There lies a beautiful whore of a city
She accepts all donations, and attracts an endless stream of lovers
Colombian Pushers and Murderers
American Swindlers and Slavic Thugs
Because here, a man can be himself
But now, she’s sinking into the sea

New Atlantis lying love (Lying love)
New Atlantis sinking slow (Sinking slow)
New Atlantis, dumb as dirt (Dumb as dirt)
New Atlantis, she’s a flirt

As her doom became apparent, her magic only accelerated
Because people are desperate for love and beauty

You and I are designed for love
Love there is no chance of
The Earth is ready to detonate
In a fire of imperial emptiness

New Atlantis lying love (Lying love)
New Atlantis sinking slow (Sinking slow)
New Atlantis, dumb as dirt (Dumb as dirt)
New Atlantis, she’s a flirt

New Atlantis lying love (Lying love)
New Atlantis sinking slow (Sinking slow)

Some say the world will end in fire
Some say ice
Me? I just see fewer birds
Fish and butterflies
Plenty of concrete, though
I run to Europe, I run to the Caribbean
But coming here is the best thing I ever did
Miami, I love you
