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 »

I don´t want to grow anything in my heart
I don´t want to write all these things in the sand 
I don´t wish to listen and not understand 
I don´t want to tramp up the footpath of stars
Don´t want to be an advocate 
Don´t want to be a monument 

There is nothing that grows in your arctic world
I don´t want to breathe that Smithsonian air 
I don´t want to listen when they toll the bell
´Cos I can´t take another industrial feast 
On the ground, on my back, out there 
I want to meet the President 
Of a country without sense 

There is nothing that grows in his arctic world
There is nothing that grows in your arctic world
There is nothing that grows in this arctic world
