"Dreamworld" as written by Martin Rotsey, Peter Gifford, Robert Hirst, James Moginie and Peter Garrett....
The Breakfast Creek hotel is up for sale,
The last square mile of terra firma gavelled in the mail,
So farewell to the Norfolk Island pines,
No amount of make believe can help this heart of mine.

End, your dreamworld is just about to end.
Fall, your dreamworld is just about to fall,
Your dreamworld will fall.

So shut that buckle and turn that key again,
Take me to a place they say the dreaming never ends,
Open wide drive that mystery road,
Walk through eden´s garden and then wonder as you go.

Sign says honeymoon to rent
Cloud-land into dreamland turns,
The sun comes up and we all learn
Those wheels must turn.

    General CommentThe "Breakfast Creek Hotel" was on the Gold Coast of Qld.
    This song is about the destruction of our coastal environment (durrr) for the sake of progress - the music video was filmed at Coalcliff in NSW.

    General CommentThe Breaky Creek Hotel is on Kingsford Smith Dr. Right in Brisbane city. It fronts the Breakfast Creek which runs into the Brissy River, just after the Story Bridge. Nowhere near the Gold Coast...google it if you don't believe me.

    Anyway, BCH is a Brisbane landmark, so was Cloudland. The song is about how nothing ever stays the same and that people are prepared to knock down landmarks to make a buck. BCH sold, but fortunately never got knocked down. Unfortunately, it was highly renovated and is now longer a place to drop in for a drink, it is upmarket and expensive and certainly not working class anymore.

    General CommentI always wondered if this song was referring to the two Brissy landmarks. Was prob too young to remember BCH being sold. My mum always told me though about Cloudland (it was a dance hall). The story goes that the Dean Bros (a famous Brisbane demolition company) knocked it down during the night (I think in about 1981) and all of Brisbane woke up to a city without Cloudland. Funny thing is I now have a freind who lives in one of the aparments now standing on the site.
