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

93 Step by Step

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

Take a look at this sketch.

The first working title was 'Skeleton Waltz', hence the 'Bag of Bones'; which could also have been a title. It's a lyrical sketch in the category, weird; just like The Three Stooges...

Step by Step

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Step by step
Rattle through the night
Don't look now
There's no end in sight
Step by step
Moving on, through the graveyard shift
No way out
That's the truth, 'bout the size of it

Inch by Inch
Shuffle through the heat
Stay in time
Don't you miss a beat
Inch by inch
Stay in line, Never dance alone
Stand close
Holding on, to a bag of bones
Worming your way into my life
Little by little we're getting too tight
Taking me over and stealing my soul
Oh oh, stealing my soul
