Midnight Oil – Lost At Sea Lyrics


In the age when the loudest voices win, words are now worth less than silence

In these days of so much suffering, it’s the punch you don’t see coming starts the violence

We could hear the shoreline pounding in the distance, for a moment we were free

Then the sons of white Australia came with guns, and pushed us back to sea

We were lost at sea

We were lost at sea, wondering where the world could be

Well the power of the sea can move your soul, eventually it takes control

We were in the ocean drifting, started listing, then the boat began to roll

And the coastline rose in front of us, each one of us was moved to pray or yell

Then the sons of white Australia came with guns, and took us to an island Hell

Lost at sea

Lost at sea

We were lost at sea (Lost at sea)

We were lost at sea (Lost at sea)

We were lost at sea (Lost at sea)

Wondering where the world could be (World could be)


Wondering where the world could be (World could be)

We were lost at sea

Are the ghosts of white Australia still among us?

Are the ghosts of white Australia still around us?

Are the ghosts of white Australia in our boardrooms

In our bedrooms, in our chambers and our churches, in the cities and the deserts that surround us?

We gotta breathe out there

In the wild salt air

And the storms rose high

And it raged all night

Lost at sea

Lost at sea

We were lost at sea (Lost at sea)

We were lost at sea (Lost at sea)

We were lost at sea (Lost at sea)

Wondering where the world could be (World could be)

Wondering where the world could be (World could be)

I wonder where the world could be? (World could be)

Where that world could be

When you’re lost, when you’re lost, when you’re lost, when you’re lost…

When you’re lost, when you’re lost, when you’re lost, when you’re lost…
