DEAD HEART, THE

W - Hirst/Moginie/Garrett
We don't serve your country
Don't serve your king
Know your custom don't speak your tongue
White man came took everyone

We don't server your country
Don't serve your king
White man listen to the songs we sing
White man came took everything

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 don't need protection
Don't need your land
Keep your promise on where we stand
We will listen we'll understand

Mining companies, pastoral companies
Uranium companies
Collected companies
Got more right than people
Got more say than people
Forty thousand years can make a difference to the state of things
The dead heart lives here

DON'T WANNA BE THE ONE

W - Hirst/Garrett/Rotsey/Moginie
I'm an innocent victim, I'm just like you
We end up in home units with a brick wall view
I can't believe the perfect families on my colour TV
If I don't make it to the top it'll never bother me

And I don't wanna be the one
And I don't wanna be the one

I'm an innocent bystander caught in the path
Waiting out the back while the corporate attack
Assaults the senses with relentless scenes of passion and delight
I cut up all the options and went running for my life

DREAMWORLD

W - Moginie/Garrett/Hirst
The Breakfast Creek hotel is up for sale
The last square mile of terra firma gavelled in the mail
so farewell to the Norfolk Island pines
No amount of make believe can help this heart of mine

End - your dreamworld is just about to end
Fall - your dreamworld is just about to fall
Yours dreamworld will fall

So shut that buckle and turn that key again
Take me to a place they say the dreaming never ends
Open wide drive that mystery road
Walk through eden's garden and then wonder as you go

Sign says honeymoon to rent
Cloudland into dreamland turns
The sun comes up and we all learn
Those wheels must turn

DRUMS OF HEAVEN

W - Hirst/Moginie/Garrett
By the time the luminous descent of the bright star unfolds
And tablets of strangelove are shattered and bruised
By the time the oleander is falling from blloom
And tears of the crocodile water the sun

By the time you make up your mind
I ever you do
I hear the drums of heaven too
By the time you make up your mind
I ever you do
I hear the drums of heaven too

By the time paradise alley is littered with rust
And the arc of dayglo is curtained in gloom,
By the time kidney bone cities are bcrumbling to dust
And the empires and all of the mirates burn

Ice on the mountain
Wind and the dust storm
Sails in the desert
It's old and exploding
Seers and the prophets
Dramas of heaven

DUST

W - Moginie/Garrett/Hirst
It's 2 a.m. in town hall station
Black walls and sleeping drunks are bad companions
Ice is there
Fear is there
Everyone is nowhere there's too much of nothing
Take me away
Take me away
It's 9 a.m. in town hall station
Flashing faces and grey heards no comparison
So sorry
So straight
Everyone is nowhere there's too much of nothing
Take me away
Take me away
