Midnight Oil was an Australian rock band from Sydney, Australia. Through a long and distinguished career, the band became known for its driving hard-rock sound, intense live performances and political activism, particularly in aid of environmentalist and indigenous causes.

Peter Garrett, AM MP (born 16 April 1953), is an Australian musician and politician. After the Labor Party won in the November 2007 election, Garrett was appointed as Minister for the Environment, Heritage and the Arts by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. He was lead singer of the Australian rock band Midnight Oil from 1973 to their disbanding in 2002. He has served as President of the Australian Conservation Foundation, and was inducted into the Order of Australia (Member General Division) for his contribution to environment and the music industry in 2003.




Midnight Oil - Beds are Burning


Out where the river broke
The blood wood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in forty five degrees

The time has come to say fair is fair
To pay the rent to pay our share
The time has come a fact is a fact
It belongs to them let's give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning
How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning

The time has come to say fair is fair
To pay the rent, now to pay our share

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

The time has come to say fair is fair
To pay the rent to pay our share
The time has come a fact is a fact
It belongs to them let's give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning
How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning

The time has come to say fair is fair
To pay the rent, now to pay our share
The time has come a fact is a fact
It belongs to them we're gonna give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning
