Midnight Oil - Brave Faces

Tom:

  			This is the studio version, but it's virtually identical to  
the live versions i've heard.  Unfortunately, the solo was a little  
beyond me. 
 
First, the nitty-gritty

LYRICS: 
 
{Verse 1}: 
I've known many restless summers, sand dunes I imagine 
a place without a postcard 
flower people were so beautiful, but straight and loud's the way 
good luck the beatnik spirit 
the talk of politicians, the sentences of cynics  
are the sentences of childhood 
 
They're all talking shit to me 
 
{Verse 2}: 
Out-talked by the mass-media to pay the bills it lies 
and the lies we eat with breakfast 
brave faces face the boardroom, the oak-stained walls fall silent 
they leave lined with defeat 
 
and they got those tears (tills?) in their eyes 
well it makes no sense to me 
 
{vocal adlib:} 
when we danced, when we danced, all night, all the night 
you saw me, I looked right 
I was the one with my head in the clouds, 
up and down, round and round 
 
Why don't they understand?  We're so ordinary too. 
 
{Chorus}: 
I saw the exits closing now 
pain and passion, my point of view (oh yeah) 
well there's nothing but the truth (oh yeah) 
 
{Verse 3}: 
I've seen men that have been marked out, ruled out by grim assassins 
they fell hard on instant replay 
and I'm never going there, no I'm never going there, 
well the place I see's so much better (so much better) 
 
get it high, get it low 
 
cos it makes no sense to me  
 
{Chorus}: 
I saw the exits closing now 
burning mountains, burning paper, burning all around and later
