"Antarctica" as written by Martin Rotsey, Robert Hirst, James Moginie, Peter Garrett and Wayne Stevens....
I'm a snow plough
I must now plough on
I'm a snow plough
I'm a settler's son
I'm a storm cloud
Rain myself all over the place
I'm a storm cloud
Wipe that smile right off your face

There must be one place left in the world
Where the mountains meet the sea
There must be one place left in the world
Where the water's real and clean

I'm a landslide
I'm a downhill run
I'm a landslide
Open season's just begun

There must be one place left in the world
Where the skin says it can breathe
There's gotta be one place left in the world
It's a solitude of distance and relief
There's gotta be one place left in the world

I'm a snow plough
There has to be one place left in the world
I'm a snow plough
One place
One place left in the world

I'm a short fuser
I'm a slow bluesr
I'm a landslide hummin I'm a downhill runnin
There must be one place left in this world
Where we can be

    General Commenthmm. really tough one here, seeing as the meaning is in the title. it's basically saying let's make sure we don't fuck up antarctica which is the one last pure thing we have. and might i just ask.. what the hell does garret say like 1:20 in the song in the second verse? it sounds kinda like "landslide", but who the funk knows. anyway. god bless blue sky mining. talk about a solid and amazing album.

    General CommentLook at the lyrics at the top, I like how the writers of the song put themselves in the shoes of the stormclouds, the landslides etc. Its kinda like personification with the tables turned .

    General Comment@miceyman: Pretty sure it's "landslide". Agreed, "Blue Sky Mining" is the _best_ "green" album I've heard. "Green"++.
