about

The Dark Clouds Wollongong, Australia

In the early hours of a cold and frosty morning, in a seedy motel room just west of Corrimal Hill, Midnight Oil and The Dictators made love. From the power and the passion their love child; The Dark Clouds were born.

Track Name: The Study of Ill Vex
THE STUDY OF ILL VEX

I'm proud of my room.
I'm proud of my home.
I'm proud of my street.
I'm proud of the town I live in.

I'm on the front line
You're on the back nine
I'm on the front line

I'm proud of my state
I'm proud of my country.
I'm proud of my continent.
I'm proud of the hemisphere I live in
& I'm proud of the world.

The Study of Ill Vex – Peace, Love and Rock n Roll

Stop waving your flags in my face,
we all come from the same place.
Stop waving your flags in my face,
we all live in the same place.

Track Name: Mother Earth
MOTHER EARTH

This is the time when angels fall from the sky
This is the time when darkness is my only pride

I’m coming home to you

This is the time when evil walks the earth
This is the time when you and I must work together

I’m coming home to you

We’ve walked this earth for thousands of years
Tearing and ripping at its soul then there’s tear’s

I’m coming home to you
Angel - Hell - Earth
I’m coming home to you

Now I think its time that we mended our sweet earth
Push back time and love our mother earth
Track Name: Miley
You walk around in your Sunday dress
You smell good but you look a mess
You get around with your black underwear
For all to see but you don't care
Yeah, you don't care

I hope your mothers proud of you

You get around covered in tattoos
Denim diapers and high heel shoes
Pierced nipples and short black hair
For all to see but you don't care
Yeah, you don't care

Now Sweet Loretta modern
You’re twerking, you’re filming - posting selfies and You Tubing your bottom

I hope your mothers proud of you & Billy Ray too

You hit the town with it all hanging out
No need to guess 'cause you've left no doubt
Some call it smut but you call it flare
For all to see but you don't care, yeah, you don't care
Track Name: Lilac Dress
LILAC DRESS

I saw you dancin' in a lilac dress
You're the stuff that dreams are made of, yeah, yeah, yes
I like to dream of dreams and wake up wet
You're the stuff that dreams are made of, yeah, yeah, yes

then we made love, we made love

You whispered in my ear
Just write a roll for me & put me in the movies
then we made love to the Flaming Groovies
then we made love to the Flaming Groovies

then we made love, we made love
then we made love, we made love
to the early morning

something about your fire place
& it's glow upon my face
Track Name: After the Sun
AFTER THE SUN

Shadow Boxing, Straight Jacket fits
The Underground has No Exits
Don't Waste My Time, Stonewallin' fits
I Ain't The One with No Secrets

Back Street Pick Up
Know where to run
After the Rain
After the sun

Moonshine Jugs Take Me Away
Come Face to Face in old Marseille
Eat City and Night Attacks
Face the Day & face the facts
My soul is full of Angel tracks

Back street pick up
Know where to run
After the rain
After the sun
After the rain
After the sun

Can someone please call me a doctor?
Track Name: The Letter G (Barrie)
G Barrie, back in 1986
With a good spin doctor and a great big bag of tricks
And with a Howard kinda buy back scheme
It could have been a front page headline dream
G Barrie, with hindsight in hand
With just one letter, we could have changed this land
Now the Broad Arrow cafe may still be the same
But with just the letter G Barrie we'd all know your name
G Barrie you ended up with Tingles behind your back
And we all know that’s a small mans right wing attack
Now all the big houses on all the big hills seemed to bring you down
Now I'm listening to Johnny on the radio singing don't bring your guns to town

what's ya guns worth Barrie?

Now I must say I'm getting a little sick and tired of tooth pick chewing narrow minded people calling up talk back radio saying "guns don't kill people, people do"
I don't tend to agree with you so why don't you let me loose in a cafe
with a fully automatic Swiss Army knife and see how many people I kill in 8 seconds... I reckon just about none!

Barry, Barry O!
Track Name: Soul Man
SOUL MAN

I sold my soul to the soul man
I sold my soul to the soul man
I sold my soul He sold it to hell

I'm on fire

There's a beast outside my window
There's a beast inside my head
I sold my soul He sold it to hell

I'm on fire

I did not sign no contract
I did not make no plans
I sold my soul He sold it to hell

I'm on fire

Hey Satan what you trying to do, I never sold my soul to you
I'll meet you at the juke joint inn & I'll buy back my mortal sin
'cause now I'm straight and in control, to you Lucifer
I never sold my soul.
Now lay me down my soul to keep,
 whilst angles bathe my wounded feet,
 should I die before I wake,
 bless me Lord my soul he'll take

I did all you asked
I've paid all my dues
He sold my soul he sold it to you
(CHORUS)

I'm on fire
Track Name: Little Devil
There was movement at the station
for word had passed around
Satan’s child with half a face has
risen from the ground
Like a child full of admiration
With a jar being passed around
Sick and tired of the aggravation
So you gotta be proud

Little little. You’re a little. You’re a little devil

We’re gunna move to segregation
Before our last goodbye
Satan’s child with half a face and
we don’t know why
I'm full of admiration
For all your strength and lack of fear
With all your growls and moans and whispers
In young Van Demons ear

Little little. You’re a little. You’re a little devil

He hails from the Franklin River.
Amongst the Huon pines
Where the hills are steep and the mountains high

The mountains high
Hear the devils cry
The Devils cry
I don’t know why
Living on a mountain, dying on the mountain side
