Beds Are Burning
Midnight Oil

Lyrics

Out where the river broke,
the bloodwood, 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?
