"Fools" as written by Jon Lord, Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger David Glover and Ian Anderson Paice....
I'm crying I'm dying

I can see what's wrong with me
It's in my head

I can see what's gonna be
As I lie in my bed

Man is not my brotherhood
I am of the dead

I died as I lived as I loved and was born
On some distant hill

The reasons to hide were the reasons I cried
Fools pass laughing still

There can be bad blood in all I can see
It's in my brain

You don't know the pain I feel
As I must live again

Rocks and stones can't bruise my soul but
Tears will leave a stain

They smile to themselves as they lay down my head
On some distant hill

The blind and the child sweep a tear from their eye
Fools smile as they kill

I got my own way to go and now I want
To take your minds

I believe if you could see
The blood between the lines

I believe that you could be
A better kind

Please lead the way so the unborn can play
On some greener hill

Laugh as the flames eat their burning remains
Fools die laughing still
