SWIRL
(Bridie/Phillips)

One hundred wildflowers grow out in the desert
They’re sharp and bright coloured tough, rugged and dry
I thought that I’d never find these hideaway places
A glow in the darkness a place you can dream

The sun’s like a razor it lives without mercy
It sucks all the water right out of your bones
Its a land without luxury, cold hearted and ruthless on small talk

Just listen it’s still it’s something quite still.
Your heads spinning just swirl you just swirl

The man with a yearning lives over the mountain
He’s harbouring convicts inside of his heart
When the night is dead quiet he’s awake and he’s listening
he shouts to the hidden monsters out there in the sky

Your head is spinning you just swirl you just swirl away away away

Down there in his soul
Listen its all around
Wrapped around your heart
Like rusted barbed wire
