Split Lip – Beds Are Burning lyrics

Out where the river broke
The bloodwood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam at forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance
When our earth is turning?
How do we sleep
When our beds are burning?

How can we dance
When our earth is turning?
How do we sleep
When our beds are burning?

Now the time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The four wheels scare the cockatoos
From Kintore East to Yuendemu
The wretched desert lives and breathes
In forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance
When our earth is turning?
How do we sleep
When our beds are burning?

How can we dance
When our earth is turning?
How do we sleep
When our beds are burning?

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance
When our earth is turning?
How do we sleep
When our beds are burning?
