All of Distant Sun is bliss. Infact Together Alone is an amazing album lyrically.

My life is a house
you crawl through the window
slip across the floor and into the reception room
you enter the place of endless persuasion
like a knock on the door
when there's ten or more things to do
Who is that calling?
you my companion
run to the water on a burning beach
and it brings me relief

Pass through the walls
to find my intentions
circle 'round in a strange, hypnotic state
I look into space
there is no connection
a million points of light
and a conversation I can't face

Cast me off one day
to lose my inhibition
sit like a lap dog on a matron's knee
wear the nails on your feet

I woke up the house
stumbled in sideways
the lights went on and everybody screamed "Surprise!"
the savage review
it left me gasping
but it warms my heart to see that you can do it too

Total surrender
your touch is so tender
your skin is like water on a burning beach
and it brings me relief

Like a night in your mind
it brings me relief
in the back door
under the stars
and the scenery is my floor
in the back room
under the stars
and the scenery is my floor

IMO the best lyrics ever written. Gets me... everytime.

one of my fave songs by Midnight Oil: One Country

Who'd like to change the world?
Who wants to shoot the curl?
Who wants to work for bread?
Who wants to get ahead?

Who hands out equal rights?
Who starts and ends that fight?
And not rant and rave,
or end up a slave.

Who can make hard-won gains,
fall, like the summer rain?
Every man must be, what his life can be,
So don't, call, me,
the tune, i will walk away.

Who wants to please everyone?
Who says it all can be done?
Still sit up on that fence
no one i've heard of yet

Don't call me baby,
Don't talk in maybe's,
Don't talk like has-beens,
Sing it like it should be.

Who laughs at their naggin doubts
Lying on a neon shroud, running around,
You've gotta touch someone,
i wanna be.......

So don't, call, me,
the tune, i will walk away

One......country One, country One, country
Who wants to sit around?
Turn it up, turn it down?
Only a man can be
what his life can be!

one vision
One people
One landmass
We are defenceless
we have a lifeline

one ocean, one policy, seebed lies,
one passion, one movement, one instant, one difference,
one life time, one understanding.

One country

Transgression, redemption
one island blue, our placemat
one firmament, one element,
one moment, one fusion,
Yes and one time

also from U2 (numerous, but the one I can type quickest)

take my shirt go on take it off me
you can tear it up
if you can tie me down......
........
with my fingers as you want them
with my nails under your hide
with my teeth at your back
and my tongue to tell you the sweetest lies

let's see..

we're too young to reason
too grown up to dream
now spring is turning
your face to mine
i can hear your laughter
i can see your smile
----------------------------------------------
i've been to where you're coming from
but the postcards weren't so bad
the knife i carry's been sharpened
on the mouths that won't keep shut
i'll stab at you in the darkness
cuz i'm trying to shed some light
your point of view's so meaningless
if you ever had one at all
all you seem to care about
is who's going to take the fall
who's going to take the fall for you?
----------------------------------------------
now your feet are back on the ground
again she'll say the weather's dim
but relax my love...
relax and swing
----------------------------------------------
before the light of day reveals itself
i am assured she won't forget
but still i will console myself
should i lose something i could regret?
but now she turns to leave
exactly like she used to do
did nobody warn you boy
love's in vogue again my love?
how bitter the morning feels
exactly like it ought to do
----------------------------------------------
the cottage is windswept
now there's only sorrow here
follow evacuation signs
you're detached and broken
and so sentimental now
remembering how we passed our time
somebody waits for me
far beyond our halloween
----------------------------------------------
oh baby do it again and again
i can hear nothing
windswept is the sand
oh baby show me more
i can see nothing
windswept is the shore

heatwave to nightshade
oh i'm feeling swept away
oh baby don't leave me there
with a low whisper
windswept on the air
you say it's nothing
but a game to play
oh i'm feeling swept away

slow baby you can take your time
i can hear nothing
windswept is on the tide
a feeling only or state of mind
you can take me high mama
mama take me high

wise on a birthday party
in a world
full of surprising fireworks
and sudden silence
lies on a stranger's bed
the new day breaks
like a speeding train
on an old friend
ever expected,
but never knocking

holding your own
in a battered car
all night parties
cocktail bars
and smile
when the butterfly escapes
the killing jar

sure eyes awake
before the dancing is over
wise or naked in
secret oktober

freefall
on a windy morning shore
nothing but a fading track
of footsteps, to prove
that you'd ever been there

spoken
on a cotton cloud
like the sound of gunshot
taken by the wind
and lost in distant thunder

racing
on a shining plane
tomorrow won't be content
to watch as the lightning
plays along the wires,
and you'll wonder...

sure eyes awake
before the dancing is over
wise or naked in
secret oktober

sure eyes awake
before the dancing is over
wise or naked in
secret oktober
----------------------------------------------
well it's been a long time
how should i feel?
what can i say?

with fantastic stories
you present yourself
in different ways

some particular places
remembered so well
are hard to forget

we've travelled so far now
then we were so young
hard to impress

but she comes and goes
the other side of life
sheltering only
the other side of life

these singular occasions
we seem to share
stumble and fall

if you could remember to wave a sign of life my way
----------------------------------------------
just when i think i'm winning
when i've broken every door
the ghosts of my life
blow wilder than before
just when i thought i could not be stopped
when my chance came to be king
the ghosts of my life
blew wilder than the wind
----------------------------------------------
he's sinking faster than a drowning man
he'll grab a hold of anyone he can
gun in his pocket and a heart of ham
uncle sam
he's dying faster than a rabid dog
infect us all now he's losing blood
nose for trouble and a soul of rock
smokey's man

don't drag me down
i don't wanna drown
you're going down
----------------------------------------------
hey boy
give your dreams a rest
if you're tired of searching
this is where it ends
there's nothing left to lose
nothing to protest
learn to love your anger now
anger here is all you possess
welcome to the age
----------------------------------------------
friends of mine
they said they were friends of mine
said they were passing time
more like a waste of time
close the door
i said close the door
i've told you twice before
what are you waiting for
----------------------------------------------
maybe your heart is aching
i wouldn't know, now would i?
maybe your spirit's breaking up
i shouldn't care, now should i?
maybe you're thinking of me
i wouldn't know, now would i?
if only you knew how i feel
wish i could die, now don't i?
----------------------------------------------
and sometimes i'm caught in a landslide
my beats so in time, can you look at me
i'm out of reach, i'll talk if it feels right
so nervous to say, tell me, can't you see
if you want, i fall out forever
i can't say no more... bebe dance with me
and please don't say leave it till later
i've had my last chance on the stairway

at the end of the rainbow
found each other there
strange, we never thought the colours would fade
be easy to walk
but it's much harder to stay
why, oh why, are we reckless today?
you and i
got to hold on together
because in this life
maybe the sun doesn't shine forever
----------------------------------------------
the afternoon it's one maybe two
sipping away my last gold star not so much to do
dream away the sunny day until it's time to leave
i'll just watch you pass on by when i'm on my own in tel aviv
with the blocks to one side
the beach to the other
and the trees and the leaves
on my own in tel aviv
and the trees all the leaves
on my own in tel aviv
----------------------------------------------
walking out of nowhere
and i let you in
till my imagination went for a spin
i seen you every night
been making out since then
and still i wonder why everybody's saying
that ice is thin.
----------------------------------------------
what if it's real, what if you're just faking
what if you knew you could
what if you get off on manipulating
why does it feel so good
----------------------------------------------
watch the world argue
argue with itself
who's gonna teach you
peace and happiness
----------------------------------------------
freedom is intoxicating
it's a lizard in your hand
don't you worry about the future
i need some in my plan
----------------------------------------------
tuesday she works
in the library uptown
some useful knowledge
can always be found
don't burn the library
till you've read all the books
sometimes in life
you get a second look
----------------------------------------------
well just the other day
while alone in my room
i said to myself
i need something new
i've cut a new life slice
and feed the lions twice
and they'll shake their manes
in confusion
----------------------------------------------
playing in the dirt
we find the seeds of doubt
don't water them with your tears
don't think about all the years
you'd rather be without

eden lets me in
i find the seeds of love
and climb upon the highwire
i kiss and tell all my fears

falling down the mountain
end up kissing dirt
look a little closer
sometimes it wouldn't hurt

playing in the dirt
we find the seeds of fun
and we scream like alleycats
tearing down what we attack
to prove that we are one

cutting through the night
and we find the seeds of lust
and lose our minds on one intent
these passions never seem to end
----------------------------------------------
tilt my hat at the sun
and the shadows they burn dark
light me and i'll burn for you
and the love song never stops

i like the look in your eyes
when you talk that certain way
i love the day in the life
when you know that lovers way
----------------------------------------------
in the dark of night
those small hours
uncertain and anxious
i need to call you

rooms full of strangers
some call me friend
but i wish you were
so close to me

in the dark of night
those small hours
i drift away
when i'm with you
----------------------------------------------
and i was lost for words
in your arms
attempting to make sense
of my aching heart
if i could just be
everything and everyone to you
this life would just be so easy
----------------------------------------------
promises are carved out of lust
with the fire in the heart
that burns with no regret
i vow to play the part

in this a meeting of the soul
my feelings are unknown
i learn with no regret
i'm getting what i get

one more...

when your nine day feed is up
and you've drained your loving cup
come stands reeling to the shore
when the brave are coming out
the dry fight and the dusty shout
see you crawling on the floor
and diamond stars shine glitter bright
gorging your sanhedralite
words are falling to the floor
glands stand pouring fruit tree
now they glisten on the water line
see how you are at the shore
i'm moving chrissie pretty flowers in the shutter maze
haul up all your petty desires
leave it lying down before
wash away the rusty disease
of your brown town days in our silver sea

leave it dying at the door
feather yell you've time to leave
open out your arms and breathe

My Random Allotment of favourite lines/verses:
-------------------------------------------------------------
The finger of blame has turned upon itself
And I'm more than willing to offer myself
Do you want my presence or need my help
Who knows where that might lead
-------------------------------------------------------------
anei ra maua (here we are together)
e piri tahi nei (in a very close embrace)
e noha tahi nei (being together)
ko maua anake (just us alone)
--------------------------------------------------------------
No time, no place to talk about the weather
the promise of love is hard to ignore
who said the chance wasn't getting any better
the labor of love is ours to endure
the highest branch on the apple tree
it was my favorite place to be
I could hear them breaking free
but they could not see me
I will run for shelter
endless summer lift the curse
it feels like nothing matters
in our private universe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
would cause me pain
if we were to end it
but I could start again
you can depend on it

I know I'm right
for the first time in my life
that's why I tell you
you'd better be home soon
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
You act as though
You are a blind man who's crying
Crying `bout all the virgins that are dying
In your habitual dreams
You know, seems you need more sleep
But like a parrot in a flaming tree
I know, it's pretty hard to see
I'm beginning to wonder if it's time for a change
But still you try like a fat boy
Dancing Gershwin's blues
But you'd rather sit at home and watch the news
And I'm beginning to wonder if it's time for a change
I'm beginning to wonder if it's time for a change
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Make a move, get off your spine
Shake your leg, tow the line
Mum's the word, the doctor said
Try your hand at this instead
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I love lyrics!

If being wrong's a crime, I'm serving forever
If being strong is what you want, then I need help here with this feather
If being afraid is a crime, we hang side by side
At the swingin' party down the line

----------------------------------

Here's a scene:
You're in the backseat laying down
The windows wrap around to the sound
Of the travel and the engine
All you hear is time stand still in travel
And you feel such peace and absolute
The stillness stills but doesn't end
But slowly drifts into sleep
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen
And they're there for you
For you alone, you are the everything
