"Bushfire" as written by Martin Rotsey, Robert Hirst, James Moginie, Peter Garrett and Wayne Stevens....
In my shoes, in my shoes
There is so much to remind me
As the stars come out above me, home

Cool wind, clear my head
Bright sun grow my food
Strong rain clear my heart
Fill my land
It's a new day

I don't know why it is sold
Don't know why it's so cold
In this life that we live

New day, new day, new day

In my shoes, in my shoes
There is so much to astound me
As the whirlpool spins around me, home

Bushfire, burn and grow
Sunset watch and rest low
Long night holding child close, feed my dream

It's a new day

I don't know why it is sold
Don't know why it's so cold
In this life that we live

New day new day new day

It's larger than life, darker than death
We're gonna move those mountains aside

Here come the messages

(Moginie/Garrett)

    General CommentOne of the most beautiful and underappreciated of all of the Oils songs. A gorgeous bit of acoustic guitar, a soulful tune and a song that makes you just want to sit and under a tree and appreciate life and the beautiful land under our feet here in Australia. Another Midnight Oil song where they fit a million wonders and treasures of life into a few stanzas. Classic Jim and Peter work. I adore this. As for meaning? Well, to me it's a song about life, the crazy 'whirlpool' wonder of it all.
