The complete lyrics - all in good time

75 All the Time in the World

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Fra Deep Purple albumet

Det er noe med gamle Zeno.

Ideen om at en skilpadde ikke kan bli slått i et løp er selvfølgelig veldig latterlig, men matematisk mulig hvis du tillater at målstreken blir flyttet - og at forfølgeren blir elastisk utfordret - med hvert lange steg. Hvor liten (eller stor) kan et rom eller tid være?

Hvert er et bevegende nummer konsekvent definert av vår mulighet til å måle det.

Slik undrende tenking kan bli gjort sittende nede like enkelt som om du er ute og jager reptiler.

All the Time in the World

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

There's still a long way to go
And the nights are closing in
But if I'd travelled any faster babe
Lord knows where I might have been
Right from those early days I put my faith
In the axle - not the wheels
Like old Zeno's toytus
With Achilles snapping at my heels

Don't worry
There's no hurry
Here we are with all the time in the world


I could have been a high-flying dealer
But I have no desire for speed
I could have been a wide receiver
But I've got everything I need
And so I watch the world go racing by
Tearing up the street
I lay back in the long grass
Take it easy and rest my feet

Don't worry
You know there's no hurry
Here we are with all the time in the world


No-one ever held me back
No-one ever put me in chains
No-one ever saw me racing ahead
No-one had to tug on my reins
As everybody knows, I may be slow
But I never quit
Sometimes - on a good day - I sit and think
Sometimes I just sit

Don't worry
Relax there's no hurry
Here we are with all the time in the world
