Deep Purple

Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although some band members claimed that their music cannot be categorised as belonging to any one genre. They were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as "the globe's loudest band", and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, including 7.5 million certified units in the US. Deep Purple were ranked number 22 on VH1's Greatest Artists of Hard Rock programme. more »

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!"
