Midnight Oil - E-Beat Lyrics




There is a place we're coming to
It is not green it is not blue
I hope that you understand

The devil was a dancing on the old foreshore
Hitting up on bright lights and the liquor stores
Save me, please save me

We got to prick that bubble in the shopping arcade
Gonna make amends for the things we've said
I do hope that you understand

Dirty washing on the line, footsteps in the sand
Whose gonna lead us on to some promised land
Save me

The devil was a dancing on the old foreshore
Hitting up on bright lights and the liquor stores
Yeah tell me, please save me

The land lives longer if we listen to the earth beat
Lives go forward if we listen to the hearts speak
Seasons won't falter, stars won't fade away
I know

Gonna find myself a place in the country
Wake up and reach out and breathe real air
Do you know how it feels clean tissue no scars

Dirty washing on the line, footsteps in the sand
Whose gonna lead us onto some kind of promised land
Save me

Devil was a dancing on the old foreshore
Hitting up on bright lights and the cut price the liquor stores
I say

The land lives longer if we listen to our hearts speak
Lives go forward if we listen to the earth beat
Seasons won't falter, stars won't fade away
Fade away
They won't fade away

    the other day i was listening to an Emmylou Harris song, it sounded like that these Malcolm Burn arrangements on Breathe, then I looked up and could see this guy had produced many Harris albums, I don't know if that's why she appears on the son Home from this album.

    Jason Barbush

    where country meets punk

  6. Neil Blanchard

    I love this one; it grows on me each time I hear it.

    I wish they would release Time To Heal from Breathe, as well.

  7. 1monopoly21

    One of their best imo. Love the bass droning underneath complimenting the guitar

  8. r11j21s71

    I love this album and Midnight Oil could you post Common Ground and songs from Red sails in the sunset :)

  10. warren peace

    thanks for posting this up. do you think you could also post up from this album, Sins of Omission. and bring on the change. those were also really awsome tracks

  11. Polyfusia

    This album came right off the heels of Earth And Sun And Moon, and was it's opposite in many ways. Minimalist production instead of overworked, and quiet and understated. It is among my favourite Oils records, along with Earth And Sun And Moon, Head Injuries, and Place Without A Postcard from the earlier years.
