Midnight Oil Lyrics

Used And Abused Lyrics

I was taken downtown for my part in the demonstration
I was used and abused
With the light in my eyes at the station I said
No no! You got the wrong man
No no! Don't pick on me again
No no! I'm going home to my family and friends

I'm too busy making a living to make any money
And the living ain't easy
And the money disappears in a hurry I said
No no! I'm going back to school
No no! They're treating me so cruel
No no! I'm breaking all the rules

I was talking to the man
He said We're gonna make a deal
I was fooled into thinking
That the paper in my pocket was real I said
No no! You've been taken again
No no! You're losing all your friends
No no! It's just a matter of sense
