Deep Purple: Child in Time Meaning

Song Released: 1970

Child in Time Lyrics

Sweet child in time, you'll see the line
Line that's drawn between the Good and the Bad
See the blind man, he's shooting at the world
Bullets flying, ooh taking toll
If you've been bad - Oh Lord I bet you have
And you've not been hit oh by...

    It's a song about war in general (not just Vietnam War), and it's special beacuse of its lyrics. Very simple, but also very deep if you think about the nature of humans and their desire to kill for a shameful reason- money. For me the best part of the lyrics is: "You'd better close your eyes and bow your head and wait for the ricochet." It tells you that sooner or later you will also be hit by flying lead just like the men you killed. The song has great music and in my opinion it's one of the greatest rock songs of all time.
