Deep Purple - Burn



"Burn" is a song by British rock band Deep Purple. Its riff is similar to the 1924 song "Fascinating Rhythm". It was released on the album of the same name in 1974, and was the first song by the Mark III lineup.


The song remained the band's concert opener for the next two years, taking over from "Highway Star". It opened Deep Purple's set on the California Jam two months after its release, on 6 April 1974.




Lyrics


The sky is red, I dont 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 citys a blaze, the towns on fire.

The womans flames are reaching higher.

We were fools, we called her liar.

All I hear is burn!


I didnt believe she was devils sperm.

She said, curse you all, youll never learn!

When I leave theres 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 dont 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!
