Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning

English

Beds Are Burning

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 Yuendumu
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
