Midnight Oil

[Powderworks] Song Meanings

I remember PG, when talking to the crowd on stage, say something like "Now 
we're going to play a song about the rich countrys not always paying back to 
the poor ones the values they have taken from them" (or something like that) 
and then they played "Blue Sky Mine".

That's one song. Anything else?
