About Dreamworld

"Dreamworld" is a song by Australian rock band Midnight Oil released in 1988 as the fourth and final single from their sixth studio album, Diesel and Dust. In the United States, the song reached No. 16 on the Modern Rock chart and No. 37 on the Mainstream Rock chart. The song laments the loss of much of Queensland's built heritage — including the Cloudland Dance Hall, where Midnight Oil had frequently performed — which was demolished under the then-ruling Joh Bjelke-Petersen state government. Prior to the song being released, the band performed a version with some alternative lyrics at the Live @ RMIT, Melbourne, Australia - March 7, 1987 concert. The Dreamworld theme park, which inspired the song's name, is briefly shown in the music video.

The Breakfast Creek hotel is up for sale, 
The last square mile of terra firma gavelled in the mail, 
So farewell to the Norfolk Island pines, 
No amount of make believe can help this heart of mine. 

End, your dreamworld is just about to end. 
Fall, your dreamworld is just about to fall, 
Your dreamworld will fall. 

So shut that buckle and turn that key again, 
Take me to a place they say the dreaming never ends, 
Open wide drive that mystery road, 
Walk through eden´s garden and then wonder as you go. 

Sign says honeymoon to rent 
Cloud-land into dreamland turns, 
The sun comes up and we all learn 
Those wheels must turn.

Midnight Oil

Midnight Oil (also known informally as "The Oils" to fans), were an Australian alternative rock band from Sydney originally performing as Farm from 1972 with drummer Rob Hirst, bass guitarist Andrew James and keyboard player/lead guitarist Jim Moginie. While vocalist Peter Garrett was studying at Australian National University in Canberra, he answered an advertisement for a spot in Farm, and by 1975 the band was touring the east coast. By late 1976, Garrett moved to Sydney to complete his law degree, and Farm changed its name to Midnight Oil by drawing the name out of a hat. more »
