Lyrics:

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 to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance
When our earth is turning
How do we sleep
While our beds are burning”

  1. 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 to them
    Let's give it back

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

    The time has come to say fairs fair
    to pay the rent, now to pay our share

    Four wheels scare the cockatoos
    From Kintore East to Yuendemu
    The western desert lives and breathes
    In 45 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 to them
    Let's give it back

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

    The time has come to say fair's fair
    To pay the rent, now to pay our share
    The time has come, a fact's a fact
    It belongs to them, let's give it back

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

  12. Hi, Jesus is Lord. To see evidence for the resurrection of Christ, read "The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus," by Habermas and Licona; and Google "Miracle of the Holy Fire." To see five good arguments for the existence of God, read "On Guard," by William Craig. To learn about the Orthodox Church, read "The Orthodox Way," by Ware. To see biblical prohibitions against witchcraft, read "Witchcraft: Exploring the World of Wicca," by Hawkins. To see science against the Theory of Evolution read,

    1. Mere Creation: Science, Faith & Intelligent Design, By Dembski; 2. The Creation Hypothesis: Scientific Evidence for an Intelligent Designer, By Moreland; 3. Intelligent Design, By Dembski 4. Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, By Behe; 5. The Bible, By the Holy Spirit. (Also read "Genesis, Creation and Early Man: The Orthodox Christian Vision," By Fr. Seraphim Rose).

    Pray, "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner."
