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!"

It's difficult to rate songs like this if you're "of a certain age"....on one hand, it throws you back to your teenage years and on the other hand, I sit here now smiling at the screen but my eyebrows are raised at the sheer volume/energy of this (in the morning, no less) and of course the Spinal Tap afterthought.  So I sit here and chuckle and enjoy. Thanks for listening.
Cleaning pot and listening to Deep Purple in Kevin’s room in 12th grade. What a world was opening up for us then...
Oh, it seems like the time to KICK ASS

  Yeah, I'd have to agree on both counts. The cover art doesn't help.

Stunning guitar playing as ever from Blackmore. Lord on keyboards is always a blessing. Paice on drums providing a solid backbone. Always gets it right. Coverdale isn't quite the heavy rock singer (more bluesy), but he does alright here. The less said about Glenn Hughes' vocals the better.
that double keyboard solo is coming from heaven. RIP Jon Lord.
Yeah, most excellent...."8" , one of the best rock
albums of 1974...
