Nothing Lost - Nothing Gained Lyrics

by Midnight Oil

In my world there are sorrows
I'd rather drown in happiness
Come the morning when the darkness through
That story's bound to change

And in my world and in my world
It's all the same
And nothings ventured, nothing's gained
And nothings lost and nothing's changed

Go and jump aboard the train of freedom
It's a one way fare
You can find out now that when the tunnels through
Your tickets vanished, forgotten you

And in my world and in my world
It's all the same
And nothings ventured, nothing's gained
And nothings lost and nothing's changed

Turn up the TV, make the music loud
Better to ignore the rabid dog baying at your door
Draw the blind, change the channel if you dare
Better to say, I don't care

And in my world and in my world
It's all the same
And nothings ventured, nothing's gained
And nothings lost and nothing's changed

You hear the bell, you know it's time to jump off
'Cause there's nothing at the platforms edge again
It's too late, it's over to you
