Midnight Oil – Been Away Too Long lyrics

Fresh air soft landing
So good to be home
This bruised world's got it's beauty
It's where I belong.

The sight of those green curves
Quickens my heart
Break the grip of Leviathan
Now I'm ready to start.

Have I been away too long
Have I been away too long
Have I been away too long
I just can't wait.

Saw big smoke umbrella
Blue lights up close
Exploiters of psyche
Stealing the code.

I imagine completeness
No spin cycle deceit
Time and tide keep on rolling
Now the world's at my feet.
