38 Picture of Innocence

Deep Purple のアルバム Bananas より

"Woman from Tokyo" と同じように、これは特定の女性についての曲ではない。僕にとってうっとおしい「彼女」とはEUというバカバカしい権力、そして差別用語反対主義マフィアの比喩的表現。両者ともバンバン攻撃したい相手だ。

ポリティカル・コレクトネスの結果みんなあまりにも敏感になりすぎて、何についても全く意見を述べられなくなるのが恐い。(僕が無礼なことを言う相手は、友達と思っている相手だけ。他の連中はさっさと地獄に行けばいい。)EUの監視委員達は、僕達みんなを非個性的な人民の集まりにしようとし、既にかなりの成果を上げている。

Picture of Innocence

(Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse, Paice)

I hear they're trying to make us all the same
It's mind control by any other name
Who's gonna pay the price
For this foolish paradise
OhMomma don't take that train

I hear it said we're headed too far south
Chinese whispers go by word of mouth
Rules for every size and shape
The nag has gone, shut the gate
Once you're in you're never getting out

I'm so misunderstood
There goes my manlihood
She's in my face again
With that picture of innocence

No drinks, No smokes
No dicking around
No dirty jokes
Straight lace, straight face
The old straight jacket
We got no hope

I hear they're gonna try out something new
I can feel it sticking to my shoe
So this is what tomorrow holds
Hopes and dreams are bought and sold
But still the world is misty green and blue

I'm so misunderstood
There goes my mannish boyhood
She's in my face again
With that picture of innocence

No deals, No strokes
No forbidden fruit
No holy smoke
What next, no sex
That's the end of the road
We got no hope

No drinks, No smokes
No dicking around
No dirty jokes
Straight lace, straight face
The old straight jacket
We got no hope

No deals, No strokes
No forbidden fruit
No holy smoke
What next, no sex
That's the end of the road
We got no hope
