Time To Heal

Written by Midnight Oil

Duration 3:54

From the album Breathe

In the cities and the towns
The word is coming down
No more hurt, no more pain
There has been a dragging of the chain

Now there is a price we have to pay
No way out, no way down
Where is the town that we lived in brother
Where are the sounds of the church bell sister

Now is the time to heal
You keep running from the wheel
But there's nothing left to feel
Empty heart down and out
Now the writers can't explain
Why we're playing up again
No way out, now way down

Where is the hope of a clean tomorrow
Hope only offers when justice is coming

Now is the time to heal
Where is the ground, the beloved country
Women and children who have fallen silent
Where are the words that can speak forgiveness
Now is the time to heal
