      About "Spirit Of The Age"

      Lyrics for Midnight Oil - "Spirit Of The Age"

      Spirit of the Age
      There is an SOS of real distress, baby tears at the best address
      Ambulance chasers won't confess, sun comes up and you're stuck

      The ones and the zeros are flushing your pores,
      You've been flamed in the dark and you're feeling sore
      The drip feed rattle lures the innocent cattle
      It is the only job in town

      Yeah I know Spirit of the Age is coming home

      Here it comes
      A 747 is landing on your head
      A hand reaches out and you find you're dead
      Scared of the tarot and scared of the score
      But you went in deep 'cause you needed more

      But Karma is a boomerang and here it comes again
      Feels like the country is a going round the bend

      Yeah I know Spirit of the Age is coming home
      There were a few blue singlets at the garage sale
      No-one was cheering at the treasures they were clearing
      Desperate fictions are in my book
      Howl of the dashboard culture that shook

      But Karma is a boomerang it's bound some down again
      Feels like the country is just a going round the bend

      Yeah I know spirit of the Age is coming home
