Time for Bedlam – Deep Purple

Descending the cold steps of the institution for the politically insane
Never to be seen again
Saying farewell to daylight
From henceforth I shall rot in a stinking bed of wet straw

Right from the ashes of life I learned to behave
What to believe, what not to say, from cradle to grave
Ah….. like a good little slave

Sucking my milk from the venomous tit of the state
This clearly designed to suppress every thought of escape
Ah….. I surrender to fate

No pity, no pity
Don’t want no pity for me in this filthy ceil
I’ll see you in hell
See you in hell

Frozen in time, I’m a specimen pinned to my throne
With an army of butterflies pilloried placid and prone
Ah….. we were never alone

No pity, no pity
Don’t want no pity for me in this filthy ceil
I’ll see you in hell

After centuries of living with nothing but my convictions
Broken fingers clawing through the walls of my incarceration
Escaping the clutches of eternal damnation
I was justified

Burn – Deep Purple

The sky is red, I don’t understand,
past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin’ the woman is damned,
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
The city’s a blaze, the town’s on fire.
The woman’s flames are reaching higher.
We were fools, we called her liar.
All I hear is “Burn!”

I didn’t believe she was devil’s sperm.
She said, “Curse you all, you’ll never learn!
When I leave there’s no return.”
The people laughed till she said, “Burn!”
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin’, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear “Burn!”

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don’t understand,
past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin’ the woman is damned,
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear “Burn!”

Hush – Deep Purple

I got a certan little girl she’s on my mind
No doubt about it she looks so fine
She’s the best girl that I ever had
Sometimes she’s gonna make me feel so bad

Hush, hush
I thought I heard her calling my name now
Hush, hush
She broke my heart but I love her just the same now
Hush, hush
Thought I heard her calling my name now
Hush, hush
I need her loving and I’m not to blame now

(Love, love)
They got it early in the morning
(Love, love)
They got it late in the evening
(Love, love)
Well, I want that, need it
(Love, love)
Oh, I gotta gotta have it

She’s got loving like quicksand
Only took one touch of her hand
To blow my mind and I’m in so deep
That I can’t eat and I can’t sleep

Listen
Hush, hush
Thought I heard her calling my name now
Hush, hush
She broke my heart but I love her just the same now
Hush, hush
Thought I heard her calling my name now
Hush, hush
I need her loving and I’m not to blame now

(Love, love)
They got it early in the morning
(Love, love)
They got it late in the evening
(Love, love)
Well, I want that, need it
(Love, love)
Oh, I gotta gotta have it

Black Night – Deep Purple

Black night is not right
I don’t feel so bright
I don’t care to sit tight
Maybe I’ll find on the way down the line
That I’m free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home

I don’t want a dark tree
I don’t need a rough sea
I can’t feel, I can’t see
Maybe I’ll find on the way down the line
That I’m free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home

Black night, black night
I don’t need black night
I can’t see dark light
Maybe I’ll find on the way down the line
That I’m free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home
