"Clearly Quite Absurd" as written by and Roger Glover Ian Gillan....
After all we said today
The strangest thought occurred
I feel I ought to tell you
But it's clearly quite absurd

Wouldn't it be wonderful
If you could read my mind
Imagine all the stuff
That we could leave behind

How many words you waste
Before you're understood
Or simply sow some seeds
You'd do it if you could

Let me take a moment
Of your time
Inside you mind

I know what you're thinking
But I don't know what to say
The turmoil and the conflict
You don't have to feel that way

Look into my eyes
And feel my hand upon your heart
Holding us together
Not tearing us apart

How many words we waste
To justify a crime
Compare it to an act of love
That really takes no time

Why not take a moment
Of your time
Inside your mind

    General CommentIt's about how we never tell the people we care about how we feel about them until it's too late.

    General CommentA simple statement masterfully crafted into a song from Deep Purple.
    IMO, they're the pride of Hard Rock.

    General CommentIan is very taken with the idea of telepathy. With this in mind, I think this song is simply about that concept and how much easier life would be if we didn't have to try to explain everything, but were automatically understood.
