Midnight Oil – Hercules lyrics

My life is a valuable thing
I want 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 & try & 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 wants to talk about
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 world

Why wait for the planes to come
When everybody's got us on the run
South Pacific carry on

Here comes the Hercules
Her comes the submarines
Sinking South Pacific dreams
