MIDNIGHT OIL


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
Nothing they say will do

They take all the trouble that you can afford
At least you won?t have time to be bored
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

Sunburnt faces around, with skin so brown
Smiling zinc cream and crowds
Sundays the beach never a cloud
Breathing eucalypti, pushing panel vans
Stuff and munch junk food laughing at the truth
'Cause gough was tough 'til 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 want to cry
Just enough to make you want to cry

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

Buildings, clothing the sky, in paradise
Sydney, nights are warm
Daytime telly, blue rinse dawn
Dad?s so bad he lives in the pub
It?s a underarms and football clubs
Flat chat, pine gap, in every home a big mac
And no one goes outback, 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
It?s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees

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
