Midnight OilPower And The Passion

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
