The complete lyrics - all in good time
some = all / the effluxion of time

86 Weirdistan

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album

It's not a country - it's a state of mind, or rather - many states of mind. Each trying to reach out to the others but held back by convention, taboo and suspicion of the unknown.

Then driven forward again by the lust for life.

Weirdistan

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

We travel through time and meet on a stretch of sand
You're from up north and I live in wonderland
Dear neighbour of mine we're centuries, light years apart
You carry no flame but you're visible in the dark

Way across the border all those people waving flags
Sending me encouragement but I can't move
Something holds me back

The man in the moon is looking the other way
And while he's distracted we turn to another page
No questions of guilt it seems like we're just out of sync
You do what you will and I will do what I think

Imagine when you wake up scratch your head and everything's changed
Nothing's where you left it your normality's been rearranged
It's beautiful
Oh yes it's beautiful
Leave our skin as we merge into one

It's beautiful.
Oh yes it's beautiful
It's beautiful, beautiful
Oh yes it's beautiful
Beautiful
