A new Kanye West track titled "Lost In The World" hit the net today (Sept. 29) -- the third song from Ye's as-yet-untitled forthcoming album tentatively due in November.

Kanye West - "Lost In The World" Feat. Gil Scott-Heron and Bon Iver by Some Kind of Awesome

"Lost In The World" samples collaborator Bon Iver's "Woods" and features spoken-word from Gil Scott-Heron's "Comment #1." "Lost In The World" follows "Power" and "Runaway," which are also said to appear on the highly-anticipated album.

"I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind/I'm building a sill, to slow down the time," Kanye rhymes acapella at the top of the track. "I'm lost in the world, been down my whole life, I'm new in the city, but I'm down for the night," he continues as the up-tempo beat to the auto-tune heavy track drops.

He officially kicks off the song with the verse, "You're my devil, you're my angel/You're my heaven, you're my hell/ You're my now, you're my forever/You're my freedom, you're my jail/You're my lies, you're my truth/ You're my war, you're my truce/You're my questions, you're my proof/You're my stress, you're my masseuse."

Scott-Heron's chant begins midway through the track -- which is just under six minutes long. "Who will survive in America?" he repeats before the song ends with handclaps.
