Drums Of Heaven Lyrics

by Midnight Oil

By the time the luminous descent of the bright star unfolds
And tablets of strange love are shattered and bruised
By the time the oleander has fallen from bloom
And the tears of the crocodile water the sun

By the time you make up your mind
If ever you do
I hear the drums of heaven too

By the time you make up your mind
Remember this truth
I hear the drums of heaven too

By the time paradise alley is littered with rust
And the arc, a day glow is curtained in gloom
By the time the kidney bone cities are crumbling to dust
And the empires and all of the emirates burn

By the time you make up your mind
Whenever you do
I hear the drums of heaven too

By the time you make up your mind
Remember this truth
I hear the drums of heaven too
I hear the drums of heaven too

Ice on the mountain, wind and the dust storm
Sails in the desert, old and exploding
Seers and the prophets, drums of heaven
Attention ground control, there's someone coming down
I don't know

Attention ground control, there's a man [Incomprehensible]

By the time you make up your mind
If ever you do
I hear the drums of heaven too

By the time you make up your mind
Remember this truth
I hear the drums of heaven too
I hear the drums of heaven too
I hear the drums of heaven too
