Beds Are Burning Lyrics

Out where the river broke
The bloodwood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam 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...

    This song is about powerful, corrupt individuals who have access to technology that enables them to make a person's face or body feel like it's being held to a fire. It's basically a form of sleep deprivation torture, and although it's been utilized for many years to punish people who speak in the interest of freedom and common sense, it is being abused now more than ever. Hate groups, sinister businessmen, and corrupt politicians are especially fond of this type of torture. It is a method in which they can cowardly express their discontent towards another person when they don't get their own way.
