THE BATTLE RAGES ON...


THE BATTLE RAGES ON (Blackmore/Gillan/Lord/Paice)


Been so many words so much to say,
Words are not enough to keep the guns at bay.
Some live in fear some do not,
Some gamble everything on who gets the final shot.

Ooh... Don't talk to me of love,
Ooh... It's obvious it's not enough.

Annihilation kill them all,
Capitulation watch the mighty fall.
The road to glory is lined in red,
And trough the reason now is gone
The battle rages on...

Was it love or hate that got here first,
Hate's a habit it's hard to shake the curse.
Kill to live and live to die,
Human nature you let the strong survive.

Ooh, Don't talk to me of love,
Ooh, Be serious - it's not enough.

Annihilation kill them all,
Capitulation watch the mighty fall.
The road to glory is lined in red,
And trough the reason now is gone
The battle rages on...



LICK IT UP (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

My shoes are heavy, my feet are winding down,
I look for her in comers - but she's not around.
What I eat is eating me - it hits me hard,
I'm one jack short of a royal flush -
A stranger holds the card.

Here come the salvation in the shape of my guitar,
And I'm gonna ride it like a shooting star.
I don't want your money, I don't want your soul,
I don't need a reason -
I just want to get right down and lick it up.

Mother Mercy told me - a picture never lies,
She told me no self respecting hero ever cries.
The prisoner walks in circles, the victim walks alone,
Scissors cut the paper - the paper wraps the stone.

Standing at the entrance to the gates of paradise,
The lights go down the heat goes up that's when I cry.
I don't want your money, I don't want your soul,
I don't a reason -
I just want to get right down and lick it up.

I put my faith in fortune reaching for the sky,
The only game in town that gets me high.
I don't want your money -
I just want to get right down and lick it up.
I don't want your soul -
I just want to get right down and lick it up.
I don't need a reason -
I just want to get right down and lick it up.



ANYA (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord)

I'm so far away form everything you know,
Your name is carried on the wind.
Your ice blue waters Anya - where do they flow?
Where have they been, where have they been?

A hidden passion, touching a spark,
Flame of revolution burning wild
In your gypsy heart... Your gypsy heart.

Anya - The spirit of freedom
Anya - Ooh Anya

The light of freedom buried deep within your soul,
Across the puszta - plain to see.
The rhapsody of angel refuse to dance alone.
What do they mean, ooh, what do they mean?

Your jewel flashing across the dark,
Forbidding distance - I love your gypsy heart.
Ooh, your gypsy heart.
Anya...



TALK ABOUT LOVE (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

Talking real world, all that pain,
Try to fix it still comes out the same.
Get down to Rosie's, won't you pull that plug,
Last week someone made a mess of that rug.

Talking big house way up town,
One day one day, I'll put the money down.
All that baby talk - it's for the birds,
Let's make some honey - honey in so many words.

Oh No...
Don't want a serious conversation.
I just want to get you serious, serious.
I want to talk about love.
You talk about the weather - rain or snow,
Talking cold wind the way it's going to blow.
Talking good times night and day,
Talk, talk a stronger man could lose his way.

Aphrodite now there's a girl,
Good, good loving - she spreads around the world.
Forget your dancing all that boogaloo,
Drag that purse over here - I got to talk to you.

Oh No...
Don't want a serious conversation.
I just want to get you serious, serious.
I want to talk about love.



TIME TO KILL (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

Consider your position position your defense,
Why don't you let me ask you is it mere coincidence?
Feeding speculators on a downhill gravy train,
Like vultures ripping out the eyes to reach the dying brain.

Listen to the wind - a silent scream,
Tearing at your broken heart like a forgotten dream.

And there's a time for peace a time for war,
Wondering what we've been put here for.
A time for giving a time to take,
A time for love and a time for hate.
A time for beg and a time to steal,
So you gamble on that spinning wheel.
Of all these things I've had my fill,
Lord I need some time to kill.

Ten percent of nothing is exactly what you got,
You thing you've got the given right to take another shot
I'll take away your money all you've got is coloured beads,
Find a piece of land where you can sow your seeds.

Listen to the wind - a silent scream,
Tearing at your broken heart - like a forgotten dream.

There's a time for passion a time for pain,
A time to learn that we're all the same.
A time to remember a time to forget,
Wondering how we're going to pay our debts.
A time for thunder a time for rain,
Waiting for the seasons to change.
Of all these things I've had my fill,
Lord - I need some time to kill.



RAMSHACKLE MAN (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

My clothes don't fit and I have no point of view,
I got a bad reputation but I don't believe it's true.
I had something going but I blew it down the car,
Not exactly what I planned,
I'm a ramshackle man - that's what I am.

I look like a joker but I feel like a one eyed jack,
Shuffling around never get to the top of the park.
I said to the dealer put the ace in my hand,
But he couldn't give a damn...
I'm a ramshackle man - that's what I am.

I sit down thinking bout the things I have to do,
I start out fine then I pick up something new.
Stumbled through the door that's how it all began,
Now it's buried in the sand.
I'm a ramshackle man - that's what I am.

The stars shine bright when the boys come out to play,
Never feeling more than I'm feeling right here today.
I used to be fresh but now I'm second hand,
I do what I can...
I'm a ramshackle man - that's what I am.



A TWIST IN THE TALE (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

As you watch from your house on the hill,
World keeps spinning around you you're standing still.
And a thought rivers enters your mind.
Something happened once in my life,
A fading picture of you that's so hard to describe.
I've been where the sun never shines.

That's alright - there's a change in the story,
That's alright - there's a change in the plan,
A twist in the tale.

Face in the mirror head in the clouds,
Hanging on to a dream that you can't do without.
As it drops like a stone without trace.
Give what you want take what you need,
Squeezing so hard there's no room to breathe.
And your flavour has fallen from grace.

That's alright - there's a change in the story,
That's alright - there's a change in the plan,
A twist in the tale.

I saw you dancing, dancing on air.
You were lost in the in the starlight.
No one but me really cared.
Every question turns out a lie,
Can't you swallow the truth for once in your life?
I loved you but don't ask me why.

It's alright - there's a change in the story,
It's alright - there's a change in the plan,
A twist in the tale.



NASTY PIECE OF WORK (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord)

I got my feelers out...
Pleasure I can give you pain...
I'm the demon of misfortune,
Let me tell you that bad luck is my game.

Fires burning make you cold,
You can touch but you can't hold.
It's an even split between zip and the number on your ticket.

Nothing to brag about dragging in the dirt.
I'm a nasty piece of work.

Down get down on your knees,
Running gonna bring you down.
I'm the demon of disorder,
You know I'm gonna drive you into the ground.

As you're stepping through the door,
My shadow crawls across your floor.
Your dream of love -
It's not enough it's gonna come to nothing.

You ain't seen nothing it's gonna get worse,
I'm a nasty, nasty.

It's an even split between zip,
And the number on your ticket.
Your dream of love -
It's not enough it's gonna come to nothing.

Nothing to brag about dragging in the dirt,
You ain't seen nothing it's gonna get worse.
I'm a nasty piece of work.



SOLITAIRE (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

Door... Don't close the door,
I want to feel the cold, I want to see the light.
Momma where you gone?
This is no dream, can't make it right if it's wrong.

Dancing with strangers,
Fighting with friends.
It's a matter of time between love and despair,
Falling over the line, empty hearts and icy stares.
Call me Solitaire...

The eyes... In the face on the wall,
Follow me round the room, follow me everywhere.
A heart without an echo, a man without a child,
Alone with all my sorrow.

Dancing with strangers,
Fighting with friends.
It's a matter of time between love and despair,
Falling over the line, empty hearts and icy stares.
Call me Solitaire...



ONE MAN'S MEAT (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

Cold beer and a strange cigarette,
Getting you high getting you wet.
Falling in love falling out of debt,
Straight gay black or white,
Strutting in the dark hiding in the light.
Doing it wrong doing it right just doing it.

You got your life on the one hand, mine in the other,
I got the right we all got the right.

One man's meat is the other man's lousy luck.
One man's meat is someone's empty well.
One man's meat is some guy's aching butt.
One man's meat is another man's living hell.

Short fat thick or thin,
Take it in the gut take it on the chin.
Living in glory living in sin.
Hard day's work going down slow,
Riding the road where the greengrass grows.
Watching in die what d'you know?
Watch it.

You got your life on the one hand, mine in the other,
I got the right.

One man's meat is the other man's lousy luck.
One man's meat is someone's empty well.
One man's meat is some guy's aching butt.
One man's meat is another man's living hell.
