Holden Wrecks and Boiling Diesels by 

This photo was taken out at my sister-in-laws country property. For some reason it has always brought this very famous Australian song to mind!

Beds Are Burning
By Midnight Oil

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

The time has come
To say fairs fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share
The time has come
A facts a fact
It belongs to them
Lets give it back

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

Four wheels scare the cockatoos
From kintore east to yuendemu
The western desert lives and breathes
In forty five degrees

(live – on scream in blue
The time has come
A facts a fact
It belongs to us all
Lets give it back)
