The complete lyrics - all in good time
all in the effluxion of time

57 Rapture of the Deep

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Van het Deep Purple album Rapture of the Deep

Iedere duiker weet van de moeilijkheden die je tegen kan komen bij plus 3 atmosfeer. Dat is de druk die je voelt bij 100 meter onder de oppervlakte van de oceaan, als je de regels niet in acht neemt. Stikstofnarcose - of vervoering van de diepte zoals Cousteau het noemde - is de naam van deze toestand. Verlies tot logisch nadenken en op de langere duur controle verlies van je ledematen zijn hier het gevolg van……. Een beetje zoals dronken zijn, onderinvloed.

Maar goed, dit heeft niet zozeer te maken met diep water maar meer met hard denken en het duizelige effect dat teweeg gebracht kan worden door vrije meditatie op diepten van plus of min drie atmosfeer

Rapture of the Deep

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

I told you once about a place
That I had accidentally
Stumbled upon
Can you imagine how it feels
To find somewhere
That you can do no wrong
But it's alright
You're safe in my hands

I'll meet you in the sky tonight
And we will trace
Some undiscovered stars
We'll go beyond the universe
Beyond all understanding
Hey, it's not that far
But it's alright
I feel safe in your hands

I can't stand living this way
Getting by from day to day
I'm drinking from your loving cup
I told you things were looking up
Oh oh oh so good
Oh it feels so good

We're all the same but then again
We're all quite different
In our own peculiar ways
We've come so far
And now we're going
Through another phase
But it's alright
We made it so far

I can't stand living this way
Getting by from day to day
I'm drinking from your loving cup
Told you things were looking up

As we all know it's hard to breathe
When something spiritual
Has taken place
We don't know why we don't know how
We've been transformed
Into a state of grace
But it's alright
We walk in our sleep
Yes it's alright
This is rapture of the deep
