A castle full of rascals

Words & music by Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, Steve Morse and Ian Paice

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
You got 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 there
Why don't you call someone who cares
Fat cats all the same
Easy answers, just a game
Another day nothing changes
Oh there's got to be a better way
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 that no one can recall
A castle full of rascals, a fortress full of thieves
A parliament of silver tongues that latter to deceive aah

Oh my darling Carolina
If you get the chance to walk behind her
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

Ooh got to be a better way
Aaah got to be a better way
Got to be a better way ouh...
