THE UNWRITTEN LAW (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Paice)
Listen to me I've got a warning for you
You've got to learn to take more care
'Cos if you swim in dirty water
Be careful how you dry your hair
In a room within a room
In a hole within a hole
You've got to learn to share your secrets
Or you'll lose your soul.
I've got the evidence
I know you broke the unwritten law
Another town another one night stand
You know you broke the law.
It's so hard to hold back
When the fire is in your eyes
A silver dollar in my pocket
I don't like surprises
I've got your souvenir
Is that the price i've got to pay
It ain't been that long
Since the last charade.
I know you're guilty
But i'm carrying the blame
I took out much more than i put in
And i felt the pain
In a dirty little room
With nowhere left to hide
You told the truth with your eyes
but you lied inside.
