83 First Sign of Madness

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

From time to time I get the impression that I'm in a bubble. From the outside you can probably see my mouth moving but hear nothing. Not really a problem unless you started the conversation, in which case you may want to catch up on what you missed.

You've probably forgotten what it was you wanted to know, but the closing part of my answer was '…it is worth pointing out that time travel is much safer and more reliable these days. I no longer meet myself coming and going nearly as frequently as I will when it didn't.' The preceding details were admittedly a bit complex, so I'm not surprised you drifted away.

First Sign of Madness

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Somebody tell me
Why I'm talking to myself
I never listen to a word I say
Nor does anyone else
Somebody ask me
If I have any doubt
Maybe yes, maybe no
It's something to think about

The first sign of madness
Is talking to yourself
When I'm deep in conversation
Boy it sure is hard to tell
You're gonna have to put me down
You don't know where I've been
You can't imagine in your wildest dreams
The kind of shit we're in

Rambling on again
No-one's listening
On and on again
Don't believe a single word
