What Goes On Lyrics
I still love the smell of Mama's house
When something's cooking on the stove
Still hug her neck when it's time to go
Leaving's always tough
Oh, there are some things you don't grow out of

I made a name here in this town
With my right arm underneath the lights
And the trophies take me back to those Friday nights
I can't bring myself to box them up
Yeah, there are some things you don't grow out of

Like your mama's love, your biggest dream
That little town you had to leave
And all of those sweet memories
Of growing up wild and free

The Sunday morning, ringing bells
The preacher's words, the way it felt
And to this day I get my help from up above
Yeah, there are some things you don't grow out of

I'm older now and I've seen some things
Learned that life can sure be mean
But I try not to let the world rub off on me
I remember where I came from
'Cause there are some things you don't grow out of

Like the lessons learned from the time you spent
With your grandpa, just you and him
The innocence of another time
I still go back there in my mind

To Sunday morning, ringing bells
The preacher's words, the way it felt
And to this day I get my help from up above
Yeah, there are some things you don't grow out of
Yeah, there are some things you don't grow out of

Like your mama's love, your biggest dream
That little town you had to leave
And all of those sweet memories
Of growing up wild and free

And Sunday morning, ringing bells
The preacher's words, the way it felt
And to this day I get my help from up above
Oh, there are some things
Yes, there are some things you don't grow out of
Yeah, there are some things you don't grow out of

Power And The Passion Lyrics
People, wasting away in paradise
Going backward, once in a while
Moving ahead, falling behind
What do you believe
What do you believe
What do you believe is true

Nothing they say makes a difference this way
'Cos nothing they say will do
Take all the trouble that you can afford
At least you won't have time to be bored

Oh the power and the passion
Oh the temper of the time
Oh the power and the passion
Sometimes you've got to take the hardest line
I see sunburnt faces around
With skin so brown
Smiling zinc cream and crows
Sundays the beach never a cloud
Breathing eucalypt, pushing panelvans, stuff and munch junk food
Laughing at the truth, 'cos Gough was tough till he hit the rough
Uncle Sam and John were quite enough
Too much of sunshine too much of sky
It's enough to make you wanna cry

I see buildings, clothing the sky in paradise
Sydney, where the nights are warm
Daytime telly, blue rinse dawn
Dad's so bad he lives in a pub, underarms and football clubs
Flat chat, Pin Gap in every home a Big Mac
And no one goes back, that's that
You take what you get and get what you please
It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees

White Skin Black Heart Lyrics
What are you gonna do now,
now that you started
What are you gonna do now, now that it's done
The words got out there they're floating around
and coming right back down
Are you going to leave us lying here, dealing
with the consequences of a bad sound

What are you gonna do now, now that it's spoken
Words have a habit of not fading away
Our memory's clear conscience gets opened like a wound
If you can't conceive of better lines and better
times then let silence bury you
In the end you will be condemned

You see the boston strangler on the freedom
road you think the suffragettes got sunk a long
long time ago, you spewed it out your spite was
insecure it was like bile from the heights on the
toilet floor, you were a nazi drunk ... you had
the rednecks roaring for blood and then they
wanted more, your life was so small you couldn't
get enough you made a start ... you didn't
have to start ... white skin black heart white skin black heart

Blue Sky Mine Lyrics
Hey, hey-hey hey
There'll be food on the table tonight
Hey, hey, hey hey
There'll be pay in your pocket tonight

My gut is wrenched out it is crunched up and broken
A life that is led is no more than a token
Who'll strike the flint upon the stone and tell me why
If I yell out at night there's a reply of bruised silence
The screen is no comfort I can't speak my sentence
They blew the lights at heaven's gate and I don't know why

But if I work all day at the blue sky mine
(There'll be food on the table tonight)
Still I walk up and down on the blue sky mine
(There'll be pay in your pocket tonight)

The candy store paupers lie to the share holders
They're crossing their fingers they pay the truth makers
The balance sheet is breaking up the sky
So I'm caught at the junction still waiting for medicine
The sweat of my brow keeps on feeding the engine
Hope the crumbs in my pocket can keep me for another night
And if the blue sky mining company won't come to my rescue
If the sugar refining company won't save me
Who's gonna save me?

But if I work all day...

And some have sailed from a distant shore
And the company takes what the company wants
And nothing's as precious, as a hole in the ground

Who's gonna save me?
I pray that sense and reason brings us in
Who's gonna save me?
We've got nothing to fear

In the end the rain comes down
Washes clean, the streets of a blue sky town

US Forces Lyrics
All of this screamin aint gettin us nowhere tonight
Youre dead set on leavin, both of us tired of the same old fight
Your drawers are empty, your closet too
Your lips are ready to say were through

But how about you dont slam that door
Call it quits, throw your suitcase in that old Ford
Back the car out, make that right, hit the highway
Say goodbye, how about you dont

I wanna be a changed man, yeah, Im gonna do the right thing now
I know I lose my temper, thats when everything goes south
But you do too, you know its true but walking out aint the thing to do

So how about you dont slam that door
Call it quits, throw your suitcase in that old Ford
Back the car out, make that right, hit the highway, say goodbye
How about you dont

Please dont say that its over

How about you dont, dont even move
Let me hold you, show you that I still love you
Lets just try one more time, there aint no good in saying goodbye
So how about you dont, so how about you dont
How about you dont

Beds Are Burning Lyrics
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

Four wheels scare the cockatoos
from Kintore East to Yuendemu
the western desert lives and breathes
in forty five degrees

One Country Lyrics
Who'd 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 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
So don't call me the tune, I will walk away

Who wants to please everyone
Who says it all can be done
Still sit up on that fence
No-one I've heard of yet

Don't call me baby
Don't talk in maybes
Don't talk like has-beens
Sing it like it should be

Who laughs at their nagging doubts
Lying on a neon shroud, running around
Just got to touch someone
I want to be

So don't call me the tune, I will walk away

One country one
Country one country

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

One country
One understanding

Transgression
Redemption
One island
One placemat
One firmament
One element
One moment
One fusion
Yes, and one time

Best Of Both Worlds Lyrics
You say times are tough
We've got the best of both worlds here
Things are rough
We've got the best of both worlds here
Times are tough
We've got the best of both worlds

The real world is not as calm as it appears to be from here
The old world is not as safe with the new world closing in
The great south land can be as great as the one it could have been
The one it could have been

The real world is not as calm as it appears to be from here
The small world is not as strong and the testing ground is near
The old world is not as strong as the one we could have seen
The great south land can be as great as the one it could have been
The one it could have been

We've got the best of both worlds

Truganini Lyrics
There's a road train going nowhere
Roads are cut, lines are down
We'll be staying at the Roma Bar
Till that monsoon passes on

The backbone of this country's broken
The land is cracked and the land is sore
Farmers are hanging on by their fingertips
We cursed and stumbled across that shore

I hear much support for the monarchy
I hear the Union Jack's to remain
I see Namatjira in custody
I see Truganini's in chains

And the world it won't stand still

Blue collar work it don't get you nowhere
You just go round and round in debt
Somebody's got you on that treadmill, mate
And I hope you're not beaten yet

I hear much support for the monarchy
I see the Union Jack in flames, let it burn
I see Namatjira with dignity
I see Truganini's in chains

King Of The Mountain Lyrics
Walking through the high dry grass, pushing my way through slow
Yellow belly black snake, sleeping on a red rock
Waiting for the stranger to go
Sugar train stops at the crossing, cane cockies cursing below
Bad storm coming, better run to the top of the mountain

Mountain in the shadow of light, rain in the valley below
Well you can say you're Peter, say you're Paul
Don't put me up on your bedroom wall, call me the king of the mountain

Blacksmith fires up the bellows, cane cutters burning the load
Workers of the world, run to the top of the mountain

Mountain in the...

I can't take my hands from my face, there are some things we can't replace

Mountain in the...

Over liquid tarmac wastelands of cactus and heat
Down cobblestone alleyways of washing day sheets
Up ghost prairie mountains of sunset and space
Down the road at a familiar place, across the wilderness
Out further than the bush I will follow you

Hercules Lyrics
My life is a valuable thing
I wan't to keep it that way, I won't cry
My life's such a valuable thing
Some things don't fade away, I don't mind
We give the best we can give
We won't forget, we can't forgive
Keep us radioactive free
Strike a bell in Hiroshima park
You know that we can't see in the dark
We try and we try and we try...

Who waits for the planes to come
When everybody's got you on the run
South Pacific carry on

It seems to me that what we're saying
Nobody really wants to talk about it
This is no time to be wondering why
I do the best I can do
The human jungle and the global zoo
I'll find my way it's a very special way

Why wait for the planes to come
When everybody's got us on the run
South Pacific carry on
Here come the hercules
Here come the submarines
Sinking south pacific dreams

Forgotten Years Lyrics
[Originally by INXS]

I'm standing here on the ground
The sky above won't fall down
See no evil in all directions
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark
For so long

Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me
Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me

I found a love I had lost
It was gone for too long
Hear no evil in all directions
Execution of bitterness
Message received loud and clear

Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me
Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me

Don't change a thing
Don't change a thing

I'm standing here on the ground
The sky above won't fall down
See no evil in all directions

Don't change a thing
Don't change a thing
Don't change a thing
