Midnight Oil

Naked Flame – Midnight Oil

“This is a mad house,” she goes straight for the palm
“You’ll be luck to make it till Tuesday”

I say “You must be joking, the idea’s absurd”
But the picture’s hanging on her every word
But she comes right back, her black velvet cat
Has gone smiled all over the carpet
He says “I know my rights, I’ve got nothing to say”
But he cried all night on the night ‘n’ day

I’ve seen the naked flame
And I’m turning my eyes away

“Yes it’s a mad house,” the minister shouts
But his words drown out in the crowd
He says “I open my mouth and some idiot speaks”
So he strikes the service for another two weeks
Then the party’s over, it’s a free-for-all
I’m under the table, I got my foot in the door
Well she’s a natural leader, and she’s bound to win
She’s just waiting for the burning to begin

I’ve seen the naked flame
It’s gonna burn me again
I’m dying down in the rain
And I’m turning my eyes away

Midnight Oil – Earth And Sun And Moon

In the morning we will wake up and take to the air
Look back at the planet – I’m glued to my chair
Southern half is burning as we climb through the sky
Sea-birds softly falling, smoke way up high

There’s the contours of the mountains, the deserts and the plains
And a hurricane is blowing, and it turns once again
Now there’s oil spills in the water where columbus once sailed
And there’s history and mystery and it’s rolling away

I wish you could see this great mystery
Earth and sun and moon human tribe, thin blue line
Eath and sun and moon will survive

Sediment is plowing from river to sea
Now where are the mighty nations, no lines to be seen
An axe upon the broken ground, the sigh of the trees
And its floating in the ether, it brings me to my knees

Too messed up to care,
Anyone got a wing and a prayer,

In the blink of an eye
Thank you and good night

Earth and sun and moon human tribe, one thin blue line
Earth and sun and moon will survive, will survive, we will survive
