A Castle Full Of Rascals

Album: Purpendicular (1996)
  • Nothing here for me today
    Garbaggio from the men in grey
    Don't do this
    You can't do that
    What's the point
    What's the matter, anyway
    Fat cat's licking cream
    Dirty business
    Hard and mean
    Narrow eyes and hungry days
    There's got to be
    A better way

    Something here about my face
    Something make you think
    I got time to waste
    What you doing
    Standing here
    Why don't you call
    Someone who cares
    Fat cats all the same
    Easy answers just a game
    Another day nothing changes
    There's got to be a better way

    A glistening of questioners
    Prepared the inquisition
    While jackals in the shadows
    Manoeuvre for position

    A fundament of righteous men
    A barrow ideals
    The carriage of misjustice
    Crushes all beneath it's wheels
    Conspiracies of silence
    Within the temple walls
    Graveyards full of promises
    Tha no one can recall

    A castle full of rascals
    A fortress full of thieves
    A parliament of silver tongues
    That latter to deceive

    Oh my darling Carolina
    If you get the chance
    To walk behind here
    She's so clean
    You see no splash
    Just the Texas chainsaw massacre
    Fat cat's got to go
    I'm Rockin' and rollin'
    From my headache to my toes
    She's trying to set the world on fire
    Up there in her Ivory tower Writer/s: IAN GILLAN, IAN ANDERSON PAICE, JON LORD, ROGER DAVID GLOVER, STEVEN J. MORSE
