Midnight Oil

January 24, 2008

These are a couple of Midnight Oil songs I am thinking of using for some of our video work. Something about the message strikes a cord with me. Thoughts?

We dont serve your country
Dont serve your king…

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 dont need protection
Dont need your land
Keep your promise on where we stand
We will listen well understand

Whod like to change the world, who wants to shoot the curl
Who gets to work for bread, who wants to get ahead
Who hands out equal rights, who starts and ends that fight
And not not rant and rave, or end up a slave
Who can make hard won gains, fall like the summer rain
Now every man must be, what his life can be

Who wants to sit around, turn it up turn it down
Only a man can be, what his life can be
One vision, one people, one landmass, we are defenceless, we have a lifeline
One ocean, one policy, seabed lies, one passion, one movement, one instant
One difference, one lifetime, one understanding
Transgression, redemption, one island, our placemat, one firmament
One element, one moment, one fusion, yes and one time

    I love Midnight Oil.
    Just heard them this morning on XM 54 Lucy. How can we sleep while while bed are burning. How can we dance while the world is turnin…!
