L’ecologismo – Beds are burning (Midnight Oil)

L’ecologismo
“Beds are Burning” (Midnight Oil) – 1987

Midnight-Oil

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 to pay our share,
Four wheels scare the cockatoos from Kintore East to Yuendemu
The western desert lives and breathes iin 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
