Deep Purple – Flight Of The Rat lyrics
Spread the word around
The rat is leaving town
The message is a song
The misery is gone

Once I had a dream
To sing before the queen
She didn't want to know
She wouldn't see the show

What a fright
I couldn't do it right
Oh what a night

Mystic demons fly
All about the sk
With memories of a clown
The saddest show in town

When I was seventeen
Me mother said to me
Be careful what you touch
You shouldn't take so much

I blew my mind
She was so kind
I could have cried

In my mind
I had to fin
A kind of new way
Of being oh so cool
Like a blue blooded
Well studded
English fool

Speak about the past
Times are changing fast
Once I was so weak
I couldn't even speak

Shaking put a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more

Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me

Spread the word around
The rat is leaving town
The message is a song
The misery is gone

Shaking out a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more

Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me

Please stay away

    Just to remind you there are other way of turning on. The sleeve notes say, and this one is really very clear. Just adding if your unhappy with your situation change it, for as the song says, the message is a song, the misery is gone, by changing your situation, and following your dreams, at least you'll know where they will lead if you never follow your dreams, you'll always be wondering what if, what would have happened, if only, I had the nerve to follow my dreams. So don't leave it too long before you follow your dreams, whatever happens it's never a mistake to leave a bad stifling situation.
