Deep Purple - A Castle Full Of Rascals Lyrics




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
Somehing 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

    Love these mellow touches on this album. One of their best - definitely Morse gave them something valuable!

    Mark Rago

    For sure. So many people complain about the bands sound after Morse replaced Blackmore, but the first two Morse albums, Purpendicular and Abandon were much more interesting, energetic, and full of camaraderie than Battle Rages On and perhaps even House of Blue Light. The band actually started to lose a step after Don Airey replaced Jon Lord, although Gillans voice really started it's decline around that time too. Lord was such an essential component of the vintage Purple sound that not even a well seasoned keyboardist with a phenomenal resume the likes of Don Airey could properly fill his shoes. Sure Gillan lost an octave or two during that era, the songwriting was a bit less inspired, even Morse adopted a bit of a predictable brand of riffing, but it was the absence of the irreplaceable Jon Lord that really seemed to knock the Purple machine down a ring or two on the ladder. I think Airey really came close on Now What, and one can hardly criticize the keyboards on Mr.Crowley, Eyes of the World, Johnny Blade, etc. Still, Airey lacks a certain flair and tone that only Jon Lord could play with. I suppose it's more a testament to Lord than an indictment of Airey.

  9. Steve Cutler

    Gillan could sing with a Vegas house band and make em sound great!

  10. rbagel55

    Steve Morse is a welcome addition to DP

  11. piotrek cienciala

    one of my favorite DP song ever.. it's a shame it's sooo underrated..

    R. Gold

    +piotrek cienciala I agree. This is my favorite song on the Purpendicular album. I like Jon's blistering organ solo and Ian Paice shows why he is such a valuable member of the band.
