[Verse 1]
Why can't you just tell me the truth?
Hard to believe the things you say
Why can’t you feel the tears I cried today?
Cried today, cried today
How do you win if we all lose?
You change the facts to justify
Your lips move but your words get in the way
In the way, in the way

[Pre-Chorus]
Kings and Queens, crooks and thieves
You don't see the forest for the trees
Head and heart, on our knees
You can't see what we all see

[Chorus]
How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t lie to me, don't lie to me, you lie to me
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me, you lie to me

[Verse 2]
You can build towers of bronze and gold
You can build castles in the sky
You can use smoke and mirrors, old clichés
Not today, not today

[Pre-Chorus]
Kings and Queens, crooks and thieves
You don't see the forest for the trees
Head on heart, down on knees
You can't see what everyone sees

[Chorus]
How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

[Post-Chorus]
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

[Bridge]
Can't you see I’m crying?
Can't you see we're crying?
Where's the new horizon?
Where’s the new horizon?

How do you sleep?
How do you sleep?
How do you sleep?
How do you sleep?
Enough is enough
How do you sleep?

Don't lie to me, don't lie to me, you lie to me
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me, you lie to me

[Outro]
Can't you see I'm crying?
Can't you see we're crying?
Everyone answers to someone

Seriously ripped off Midnight Oil Barbra.  I hope they pay them something.

"How can we dance when our earth is turning

How do we sleep while our beds are burning
How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning"

I'd rather be in a room full of fluffy queers than put up with Babs.

She can sing, one of my favourites actually.

Edit: And how did you know about my slippers?

Speaking of lying I like how the police denied they teargassed protestors outside the White House much to the consternation of those who were in fact tear gassed. 
“who are you going to believe us or your crying eyes”
