    Beds Are Burning - Lyrics

    Out where the river broke
    The blood-wood and the desert oak
    Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
    Steam in forty-five degrees

    The time has come
    To say fair's fair
    To pay the rent
    To pay our share

    The time has come
    A fact's a fact
    It belongs to them
    Let's give it back

    How can we dance
    When our earth is turning
    How do we sleep
    While our beds are burning

    How can we dance
    When our earth is turning
    How do we sleep
    While our beds are burning

    The time has come
    To say fair's fair
    To pay the rent
    Now to pay our share

    Four wheels scare the cockatoos
    From Kintore East to Yuendemu
    The western desert lives and breathes
    In forty-five degrees

    The time has come
    To say fair's fair
    To pay the rent
    To pay our share

    The time has come
    A fact's a fact
    It belongs to them
    Let's give it back

    How can we dance
    When our earth is turning
    How do we sleep
    While our beds are burning
    How can we dance
    When our earth is turning

    How do we sleep
    While our beds are burning
    The time has come
    To say fair's fair
    To pay the rent now
    To pay our share

    The time has come
    A fact's a fact
    It belongs to them
    We're gonna give it back

    How can we dance
    When our earth is turning
    How do we sleep
    While our beds are burning

    The Dead Heart - Lyrics

    We don't serve your country
    Don't serve your king
    Know your custom don't speak your tongue
    White man came took everyone

    We don't serve your country
    Don't serve your king
    White man listen to the songs we sing
    White man came took everything

    We carry in our hearts the true country
    And that cannot be stolen
    We follow in the steps of our ancestry
    And that cannot be broken

    We don't serve your country
    Don't serve your king
    Know your custom don't speak your tongue
    White man came took everyone

    King of the Mountain - Lyrics

    Walking through the high dry grass
    Pushing my way through slow
    Yellow belly black snake
    Sleeping on a red rock
    Waiting for the stranger to go

    Sugar train stops at the crossing
    Cane cockies cursing below
    Bad storm coming
    Better run to the top of the mountain

    Mountain in the shadow of light
    (Rain in the valley below)
    Mountain in the shadow of light
    (Rain in the valley...)

    Well, you can say you're Peter
    Say you're Paul
    Don't put me up on your bedroom wall
    Call me, king of the mountain

    Blacksmith fires up the bellows
    Cane cutters burning the load
    Workers of the world
    Run to the top of the mountain


    Mountain in the shadow of light
    (Rain in the valley below)
    Mountain in the shadow of light
    (Rain in the valley...)

    Well, you can say you're Peter
    Say you're Paul
    Don't put me up on your bedroom wall
    Call me, king of the mountain

    I can't take the hands from my face
    There are some things we can't replace

    Mountain in the shadow of light
    (Rain in the valley below)
    Mountain in the shadow of light

    Well, you can say you're Peter
    Say you're Paul
    Don't put me up on your bedroom wall
    Call me, king of the mountain

    Over liquid tarmac wastelands of cactus and heat
    Down cobblestone alleyways of washing day sheets
    Up ghost prairie mountains of sunset and space
    Down the road a familiar face

    Across the wilderness
    Out further than the bush
    I will follow you, I will follow you
    I will follow you

    Power and the Passion - Lyrics

    People wasting away
    In paradise
    Going backwards, once in a while
    Taking your time, give it a try
    What do you believe, what do you believe
    What do you believe is true?
    Nothing they say makes a difference this way
    Nothing they say will do

    You take all the trouble that you can afford
    At least you won't have time to be bored
    At least you won't have time to be bored

    Oh the power and the passion, oh the temper of the time
    Oh the power and the passion
    Sometimes you've got to take the hardest line

    Sunburnt faces around, with skin so brown
    Smiling zinc cream and crowds, Sundays the beach never a cloud
    Breathing eucalypt, pushing panel vans
    Stuff and munch junk food
    Laughing at the truth, cause Gough was tough til he hit the rough
    Uncle Sam and John were quite enough

    Too much of sunshine too much of sky
    It's just enough to make you want to cry
    It's just enough to make you want to cry

    Oh the power and the passion, oh the temper of the time
    Oh the power and the passion
    Sometimes you've got to take the hardest line

    I see buildings, clothing the sky, in paradise
    Sydney, nights are warm
    Daytime telly, blue rinse dawn
    Dad's so bad he lives in the pub, it's a underarms and football clubs
    Flat chat, Pine Gap, in every home a Big Mac
    And no one goes outback, that's that
    You take what you get and get what you please
    It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees
    It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees

    Oh the power and the passion, oh the temper of the time
    Oh the power and the passion
    Sometimes you've got to take the hardest line

    My Country - Lyrics

    Was it just a dream, were you so confused
    Was it just a giant leap of logic
    Was it the time of year, that makes a state of fear
    Methods, were their motives for the action

    And did I hear you say
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong

    Did you save your face
    Did you breach your faith
    Women, there were children at the shelter
    Now who can stop the hail
    When human senses fail
    There was never any warning, no escape

    And did I hear you say
    My country right or wrong
    My country oh so strong
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong
    My country going wrong
    My country right or wrong

    I hear you say the truth must take a beating
    The flag a camouflage for your deceiving
    Cause I know, (I know) I know, it's written on your soul
    I know we all make mistakes

    This is not a case of blurred vision, it's a case of black holes, pocket
    Holes, soul holes

    And did I hear you say
    My country right or wrong
    My country oh so strong
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong
    My country going wrong
    My country right or wrong

    My country, my country, my country

    Dreamworld - Lyrics

    The Breakfast Creek Hotel is up for sale
    The last square mile of terra firma gavelled in the mail
    So farewell to the Norfolk Island pines
    No amount of make believe can help this heart of mine

    End - your dreamworld is just about to end
    Fall - your dreamworld is just about to fall
    Your dreamworld will fall

    So shut that buckle and turn that key again
    Take me to a place they say the dreaming never ends
    Open wide drive that mystery road
    Walk through Eden's garden and then wander as you go

    End - your dreamworld is just about to end
    Fall - your dreamworld is just about to fall
    Your dreamworld will fall

    Sign says honeymoon to rent
    Cloudland into dreamland turns
    The sun comes up and we all learn
    Those wheels must turn

    The Uluru Statement From The Heart was written by more than 250 delegates from all over Australia gathered at Uluru, Northern Territory, on the lands of the Anangu people, at the First Nations National Constitutional Convention in 2017. After centuries of struggle for recognition and justice, the statement calls for the establishment of a ‘First Nations Voice’ enshrined in the Australian Constitution and the establishment of a ‘Makarrata Commission’ to supervise agreement-making and truth-telling between governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

    First Nation - Lyrics

    First nation first nation
    First to deserve an explanation
    First nation first nation
    Last to receive an invitation

    First nation first nation
    When we gonna start the conversation?
    When we gonna start the celebration?
    When we gonna end the exploitation?
    When we gonna say the word invasion?

    Out loud
    We’re waiting
    Still waiting
    Nation within a nation
    Nation within a nation

    Earth black the church lacked the first fact
    80 thou turned demon days and a dirt nap
    Generate the trauma that made a kid rage
    Now the ment’ capat be filled with all that
    Fall back
    Why my cousin commit?
    Why my uncle locked up?
    Why my aunty forget, how to put a glass cup down?
    Fighting the fit
    We done been brainwashed into fighting the temptay
    Fought Armageddon and I be out the next day
    Of course I’m a get em till the spirit run empty
    My corpse full of venom outcome of the invade
    How dare you try to put me up in grave

    Strong vision
    Tradition
    No ticket no admission
    No government indecision
    No token recognition

    First nation, so ancient

    Let’s sit down and talk about appropriation
    Let’s sit down and talk about compensation
    Let’s sit down and talk about reconciliation

    Out loud
    We’re waiting
    Still waiting
    Nation within a nation
    Still waiting
    Nation within a nation

    Nation
    Nation within a nation

    When will the light switch
    24/7 in a crisis
    White noise killed black thoughts
    I sense
    theres a shift, it’l come by the nights end

    When will the light switch
    24/7 in a crisis
    White noise killed black thoughts
    I sense
    theres a shift, see the ship sink like this

    Forgotten Years - Lyrics

    Few of the sins of the father
    Are visited upon the son
    Hearts have been hard
    Hands have been clenched in a fist too long

    Our sons need never be soldiers
    Our daughters will never need guns
    These are the years between
    These are the years that were hard fought and won

    Now, contracts torn at the edges
    Old signatures stained with tears
    Seasons of war and peace
    These should not be forgotten years

    Still it aches like tetanus
    It reeks of politics
    How many dreams remain?
    This is a feeling too strong to contain

    The hardest years, the darkest years
    The roarin' years, the fallen years
    These should not be forgotten years

    The hardest years, the wildest years
    The desperate and divided years
    We will remember
    (These should not be forgotten years)

    Our shoreline was never invaded
    Our country was never in flames
    This is the calm we breathe
    This is a feeling too strong to contain

    Still it aches like tetanus
    It reeks of politics
    Signatures stained with tears
    Who can remember?
    We've got to remember

    The hardest years, the darkest years
    The roarin' years, the fallen years
    These should not be forgotten years

    The hardest years, the wildest years
    The desperate and divided years
    We will remember
    (These should not be forgotten years)

    I want a love that can take me down
    Show me up and cross off all my doubts
    I want a fire and a steady man
    Come on show me if your love can
    Write my name in crimson red
    Cross my heart and back again
    I want a kingdom where my love can stand

    We’re burning that midnight oil
    You know we put this love on trial

    Truganini - Lyrics

    There's a road train going nowhere
    Roads are cut, lines are down
    We'll be staying at the Roma bar
    Till that monsoon passes on

    The backbone of this country's broken
    The land is cracked and the land is sore
    Farmers are hanging on by their fingertips
    We cursed and stumbled across that shore
    What for?

    I hear much support for the monarchy
    I hear the Union Jack's to remain
    I see Namatjira in custody
    I see Truganini's in chains

    And the world won't stand still

    Blue collar work it don't get you nowhere
    You just go round and round in debt
    Somebody's got you on that treadmill, mate
    And I hope you're not beaten yet

    I hear much support for the monarchy
    I hear the Union Jack's to remain
    I see Namatjira in custody
    I see Truganini's in chains

    I hear much support for the monarchy
    I see the Union Jack in flames, let it burn
    I see Namatjira with dignity
    I see Truganini's in chains

    And the world won't stand still
    And the world won't stand still
    Chains...
    And the world won't stand still
    And the world won't stand still

    US Forces - Lyrics

    U.S. forces give the nod
    It's a setback for your country
    Bombs and trenches all in rows
    Bombs and threats still ask for more

    Divided world the CIA
    Who controls the issue
    You leave us with no time to talk
    You can write your own assessment

    [Chorus]
    Sing me songs of no denying
    Seems to me too many trying
    Waiting for the next big thing

    Will you know it when you see it
    High risk children dogs of war
    Now market movements call the shots
    Business deals in parking lots
    Waiting for the meat of tomorrow

    [Chorus]

    Everyone is too stoned to start emission
    People too scared to go to prison
    We're unable to make decisions
    Political party line don't cross that floor

    L. Ron Hubbard can't save your life
    Superboy takes a plutonium wife
    In the shadows of Ban the Bomb we live

    [Chorus]

    Put Down That Weapon - Lyrics

    Under the waterline
    No place to retire
    To another time
    The eyes of the world now turn

    And if we think about it
    And if we talk about it
    And if the skies go dark with rain
    Can you tell me, does our freedom remain?

    [Chorus 1]
    Put down that weapon or we'll all be gone
    You can't hide nowhere with the torchlight on
    And it happens to be an emergency
    Some things aren't meant to be
    Some things don't come for free

    Above the waterline
    Point the finger, yeah, point the bone
    It's the harbour towns
    That the grey metal ships call home

    And if we think about it
    And if we talk about it
    And if the sea goes boiling black
    Can you tell me what you'll do about that

    [Chorus 2]
    Put down that weapon or we'll all be gone
    I must know something to know it's so wrong
    And it happens to be an emergency
    Some things aren't meant to be
    Some things don't come for free

    They keep talking about it
    They keep talking about it
    They keep talking
    They keep talking
    Talking

    And it happens to be an emergency
    Some things aren't meant to be
    Some things don't come for free

    [Chorus 2]

    [Chorus 3]
    Put down that weapon or we'll all be gone
    You must be crazy if you think you're strong
    Cause it happens to be an emergency
    Some things aren't meant to be
    And some things don't come for free

    LYRICS

    People, wasting away in paradise
    Going backward, once in a while
    Moving ahead, falling behind
    What do you believe, what do you believe
    What do you believe is true
    Nothing they say makes a difference this way
    Nothing they say will do

    Take all the trouble that you can afford
    At least you won't have time to be bored

    Oh the power and the passion, oh the temper of the time
    Oh the power and the passion
    Sometimes you've got to take the hardest line

    Sun burnt faces around, with skin so brown
    Smiling zinc cream and crowds, Sundays the beach never a cloud
    Breathing eucalypti, pushing panel vans
    Stuff and munch junk food
    Laughing at the truth, 'cause Gough was tough till he hit the rough
    Uncle Sam and John were quite enough

    Too much of sunshine too much of sky
    It's enough to make you want to cry

    Oh the power

    I see buildings, clothing the sky, in paradise
    Sydney, nights are warm
    Daytime telly, blue rinse dawn
    Dad's so bad he lives in the pub, it's a underarms and football clubs
    Flat chat, Pine Gap, in every home a Big Mac
    And no one goes outback, that's that
    You take what you get and get what you please
    It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees

    Oh the power

    The Uluru Statement From The Heart was written by more than 250 delegates from all over Australia gathered at Uluru, Northern Territory, on the lands of the Anangu people, at the First Nations National Constitutional Convention in 2017. After centuries of struggle for recognition and justice, the statement calls for the establishment of a ‘First Nations Voice’ enshrined in the Australian Constitution and the establishment of a ‘Makarrata Commission’ to supervise agreement-making and truth-telling between governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

    Gadigal Land - Lyrics

    Welcome to Gadigal land
    Welcome to Gadigal country
    Welcome to Gadigal land
    Welcome to Gadigal land
    Do you know our story?
    Welcome to Gadigal land

    Don’t you bring your poison
    Don’t you bring your grog
    Don’t you bring your smallpox
    Sure to kill our mob
    Don’t you bring your justice
    Don’t you bring your gaols
    Don’t you bring your armies
    Troopers on our trails

    So welcome to Gadigal land
    Welcome to Gadigal country
    Welcome to Gadigal land
    Welcome to Gadigal land
    Have you heard our history?
    Welcome to Gadigal land

    We don’t need your convicts
    We don’t need your thieves
    We don’t need your squatters
    Or your emancipees
    Don’t you dam our rivers
    Don’t you fell our trees
    Don’t you carve our wilderness
    Don’t you net our seas

    In the land where time stands still
    In the land that’s in a spell
    Every day since the day you came is a day of rage
    It’s a day of rage

    Welcome to Gadigal land
    Wenyo wenyo wenyo!
    Welcome to Gadigal land
    Wenyo wenyo wenyo!

    Mudjaru ngaya wunyang
    (take pity on my bad pronunciation)
    Ngandu bayabawai….ngara
    (they told us they were sorry…listen)
    Ngarawa darayawai, darimi
    (but I think they’ve made a mistake, because for a long time)
    Garamawaimi baya mudjin, wa?
    (they stole my speech and family, see?)
    Birrongaingun ngarawan
    (our stars are now further away).
    Always will be Gadigal land

    It’s unfolding you’re unloading
    Your high and mighty prison ships

    We can live without your muskets
    We can live without your guns
    We can live without your strychnine
    We can live without your rum
    We can live without your gallows
    We can do without your chains
    We can do without the massacres
    The sorrow and the pain

    So welcome to Gadigal land
    Wenyo wenyo wenyo!
    Welcome to Wiradjuri land
    Welcome to Yorta Yorta land
    Welcome to Arrernte land
    Welcome to Mirning land

    Don’t Wanna Be The One - Lyrics

    I'm an innocent victim, I'm just like you
    We end up in home units with a brick wall view
    I can't believe the perfect families on my colour TV
    If I don't make it to the top it'll never bother me

    And I don't wanna be the one
    And I don't wanna be the one

    I'm an innocent bystander caught in the path
    Waiting out the back while the corporate attack
    Assaults the senses with relentless scenes of passion and delight
    I cut up all the options and went running for my life

    And I don't wanna be the one
    And I don't wanna be the one
    And I don't wanna be the one
    And I don't wanna be the one

    And I don't wanna be the one
    And I don't wanna be the one
    And I don't wanna be the one

    Not now, not there
    I'm never never gonna be the one
    I'm never never gonna be the one
    I'm never never gonna be the one
    I'm never never gonna be the one
    I don't wanna be the one

    One Country - Lyrics

    Who'd like to change the world?
    Who wants to shoot the curl?
    Who wants to work for bread?
    Who wants to get ahead?

    Who hands out equal rights?
    Who starts and ends that fight?
    And not rant and rave
    Or end up a slave

    Who can make hard-won gains?
    Fall, like the summer rain?
    Every man must be
    What his life can be
    So don't, call, me
    The tune I will walk away

    Who wants to please everyone?
    Who says it all can be done?
    Still sit up on that fence
    No one I've heard of yet

    Don't call me baby
    Don't talk in maybes
    Don't talk like has-beens
    Sing it like it should be

    Who laughs at a nagging doubts?
    Lying on a neon shroud, running around, yeah
    You've gotta touch someone
    Yeah, I wanna be.......
    So don't, call, me
    The tune, I will walk away
    So don't, call, me
    The tune, I will walk away
    So don't, call, me
    The tune, I will walk away
    So don't, call, me
    The tune, I will walk away

    One country
    One, country
    One, country
    One, country
    One
    Who wants to sit around? (country, one)
    Turn it up, turn it down? (country,one)
    Only a man can be (country one)
    What his life can be!

    (Country one) One vision
    (Country one) One people
    (Country one) One landmass
    (Country one) Be our defences
    (Country one) We have a lifeline

    One ocean, one policy, see bad light
    One passion, one movement, one instant, one difference
    One life time and one understanding

    (Country one) Yeahhhhhh, one country
    (Country one) Yeahhhhhh, one country
    (Country one) I..... tell you, it's one country
    (Country one) Heyyyyyyyy (country one)

    Yeah one, one, one (one country)
    One, one, one, one country
    One (country one)
    One understanding

    Transgression, redemption
    One island blue, our place magic
    One firmament, one element
    One moment, one fusion

    Lyrics:

    Was it just a dream, were you so confused
    Was it just a giant leap of logic
    Was it the time of year, that makes a state of fear
    Methods, were their motives for the action

    And did I hear you say
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong

    Did you save your face
    Did you breach your faith
    Women, there were children at the shelter
    Now who can stop the hail
    When human senses fail
    There was never any warning, no escape

    And did I hear you say
    My country right or wrong
    My country oh so strong
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong
    My country going wrong
    My country right or wrong

    I hear you say the truth must take a beating
    The flag a camouflage for your deceiving
    Cause I know, (I know) I know, it's written on your soul
    I know we all make mistakes

    This is not a case of blurred vision, it's a case of black holes, pocket
    holes, soul holes

    And did I hear you say
    My country right or wrong
    My country oh so strong
    My country right or wrong
    My country right or wrong
    My country going wrong
    My country right or wrong

    My country, my country, my country

    I was shaking throughout this performance, so this video is almost unwatchable... the sound is good, though. And this performance is probably the most precious of all performance I've seen, on a personal level--hence the shakiness. To cut a long story short: That sign was made for me, by a fellow Powderworker (as Midnight Oil fans/tragics are called). I've been wanting to hear Under The Overpass for so long, and it was the last song on my list of must-hear-live-before-I-die songs. Now my life is complete!

    Read About It - Lyrics

    The rich get richer
    The poor get the picture
    The bombs never hit you when you're down so low

    Some got pollution
    Some revolution
    There must be some solution but I just don't know

    The bosses want decisions
    The workers need ambitions
    There won't be no collisions when they move so slow

    Nothing ever happens
    Nothing really matters
    No one ever tells me so what am I to know

    You wouldn't read about it
    Read about it
    Just another incredible scene
    There's no doubt about it

    The hammer and sickle
    The news is at a trickle
    The commisars are fickle but the stockpile grows

    Bombers keeping coming
    Engines softly humming
    The stars and stripes are running for their own big show

    Another little flare up
    Storm brewed in a tea cup
    Imagine any mix up and the lot would go

    Nothing ever happens
    Nothing ever matters
    No one ever tells me so what I am to know

    You wouldn't read about it
    Read about it
    One unjust, ridiculous steal
    Ain't no doubt about it
    You wouldn't read about it
    Read about it
    Just another particular deal
    There's no doubt about it

  • Saulo Bass Cover - Midnight Oil - Gunbarrel Highway

    4:06

    To Sam Radojcin.

    Gunbarrel Highway é uma música da banda australiana Midnight Oil, e pertence ao álbum Diesel and Dust, que é o sexto álbum de estúdio da banda, lançado em 1987 pela Columbia Records.

    Diesel and Dust foi produzido por Warne Livesey e a banda. É um álbum conceitual sobre as lutas dos indígenas australianos e as causas ambientais, questões importantes para a banda. O disco foi inspirado na turnê Blackfella / Whitefella com a participação de comunidades indígenas remotas com a Warumpi Band e Gondwanaland em 1986. O álbum alcançou o primeiro lugar no Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart por seis semanas.

    Diesel and Dust foi elogiado pela crítica desde o seu lançamento. Os editores da Rolling Stone o nomearam o melhor álbum de 1988 (o ano de seu lançamento nos Estados Unidos), e mais tarde o classificaram como o 13º maior registro da década de 1980. Em outubro de 2010, Diesel and Dust foi listado em no. 1 no livro, 100 Best Australian Albums.

    Midnight Oil passou vários meses em meados de 1986 na turnê Blackfella / Whitefella do outback da Austrália com grupos musicais indígenas Warumpi Band e Gondwanaland, tocando para comunidades aborígines remotas e vendo em primeira mão a seriedade dos problemas de saúde e padrões de vida. A banda foiacabou sendo impactada pelas experiências e fez delas a base de o álbum, Diesel and Dust.

    O álbum enfocou a necessidade de reconhecimento pela Austrália branca das injustiças do passado envolvendo a nação aborígine e a necessidade de reconciliação.

    Felizmente o Midnight Oil é uma banda de rock ativista que continua na ativa até hoje. Suas canções tem cunho ecológico clamando pela proteção ao meio ambiente e defendendo os direitos do povo aborígene. A banda faz muito sucesso não só entre os surfistas.

    O nome do baixista da banda é Bones Hillman.
