Midnight Oil's, "Beds Are Burning"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep when our beds are burning?
Why They're Nonsensical:
Um, well, first of all, if you're going to wait for the earth to stop turning to dance, you're going to have a long wait. (That's because the earth CONSTANTLY turns. Any astronomer will tell you that.) And secondly, if your bed is on fire and all you're worried about is how you're going to sleep in it, you need to re-evaluate your priorities.
