    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

    You seen right through distorted lies
    You know you have to learn
    The execution of your mind
    You really had to turn
    The race is run the book is read
    The end begins to show
    The truth is out, the lies are old
    But you donít want to know

    Nobody will ever let you know
    When you ask the reason why
    They just tell you that youíre on your own
    Fill your head all full of lies

    The people who have crippled you
    You want to see them burn
    The gates of life have closed on you
    And thereís just no return
    Youíre wishing that the hand of doom
    Could take your mind away
    And you donít care if you donít see again
    The light of day

    Nobody will ever let you know
    When you ask the reasons why
    They just tell you that youíre on your own
    Fill your head all full of lies

    Where can you run to
    What more can you do
    No more tomorrow
    Life is killing you
    Dreams turn to nightmares
    Heaven turns to hell
    Burned out confusion
    Nothing more to tell

    Everything around you
    Whatís it coming to
    God knows as your dognose
    Bog blast all of you
    Sabbath, bloody sabbath
    Nothing more to do
    Living just for dying
    Dying just for you

    A National Acrobat

    I am the world that hides
    The universal secret of all time
    Destruction of the empty spaces
    Is my one and only crime
    Iíve lived a thousand times
    I found out what it means to be believed
    The thoughts and images
    The unborn child that never was conceived

    When little worlds collide
    Iím trapped inside my embryonic cell
    And flashing memories
    Are cast into the never-ending well
    The name that scorns the face
    The child that never sees the cause of man
    The deathly darkness that
    Belies the fate of those who never ran

    You gotta believe, yeah
    Iím talking to you

    Well I know itís hard for you
    To know the reason why
    And I know youíll understand
    More when itís time to die
    Donít believe the life you have
    Will be the only one
    You have to let your body sleep
    To let your soul live on

    I want you to listen
    Iím trying to get through

    Love has given life to you
    And now itís your concern
    Unseen eye of inner life
    Will make your soul return
    Still I look but not to touch
    The seeds of life are sown
    Curtain of the future falls
    The secret stays unknown

    Just remember love is life
    And hate is living death
    Treat your life for what itís worth
    And live for every breath
    Looking back Iíve lived and learned
    But now Iím wondering
    Here I wait and only guess
    What this next life will bring

    Sabbra Cadabra

    Feel so good I feel so fine
    Love that little lady always on my mind
    She gives me loving every night and day
    Never gonna leave her, never going away

    Someone to love me
    You know she makes me feel alright
    Someone to need me
    Love me every single night

    Feel so happy since I met that girl
    When weíre making love itís something out of this world
    Feels so good to know that sheís all mine
    Going to love that woman ítil the end of time

    Someone to live for
    Love me ítil the end of time
    Makes me feel happy
    Good to know that sheís all mine

    Lovely lady make love all night long
    Lovely lady never do me wrong
    I donít wanna leave ya
    I never wanna leave ya
    Anymore no more

    Lovely lady, mystifying eyes
    Lovely lady, she donít tell me no lies
    I know Iíll never leave ya
    Iím never gonna leave ya anymore no more

    Killing Yourself to Live

    Well people look and people stare
    Well I donít think that I even care
    You work your life away and what do they give?
    Youíre only killing yourself to live
    Killing yourself to live

    Just take a look around you what do you see
    Pain, suffering and misery
    Itís not the way that the world was planned
    Itís a pity you donít understand
    Killing yourself to live

    Iím telling you
    Believe in me
    Nobody else will tell you
    Open your eyes
    And see the lies, oh yeah

    You think that Iím crazy and baby
    I know that itís true
    Before that you know it I think
    That youíll go crazy too

    I donít know if Iím up or down
    Whether black is white or blue is brown
    The colors in my life are all different somehow
    Little boy blueís a big girl now

    So you think itís me whoís strange
    But youíve never had to make the change
    Never give your trust away
    Youíll end up paying ítil your dying day

    Who Are You?

    Yes I know the secret
    Thatís within your mind
    You think all the people
    Who worship you are blind
    Youíre just like big brother

    Giving us your trust
    And when you have played enough
    Youíll just cast our souls
    Into the dust
    Into the dust

    You thought that it would be easy

    From the very start
    Now Iíve found you out
    I donít think youíre so smart
    I only have one more question
    Before my time is through
    Please I beg you tell me
    In the name of hell
    Who are you?
    Who are you?

    Looking for Today

    Itís complete but obsolete
    All tomorrows become yesterday
    In demand but second-hand
    Itís been heard before you even play

    Up to date but came too late
    Better get yourself another name
    Youíre so right but overnight
    Youíre the one who has to take the blame

    Everyone just gets on top of you
    The pain begins to eat your pride
    You canít believe in anything you knew
    When was the last time that you cried

    Donít delay youíre in today
    But tomorrow is another dream
    Sundayís star is Mondayís scar
    Out of date before youíre even seen

    At the top so quick to flop
    Youíre so new but rotting in decay
    Like butterfly so quick to die
    But youíre only looking for today

    Everyone just gets on top of you
    The pain begins to eat your pride
    You canít believe in anything you knew
    When was the last time that you cried
    Looking for today

    Glamour trip so soon to slip
    Easy come but oh how quick it goes
    Ten foot tall but what a fall
    Hard to open yet so easy to close
    Front page news but so abused
    You just want to hide yourself away
    Overpaid, but soon you fade
    Because youíre only looking for today
    Looking for today

    Spiral Architect

    Sorcerers of madness
    Selling me their time
    Child of God sitting in the sun
    Giving peace of mind
    Fictional seduction
    On a black-snow sky
    Sadness kills the superman
    Even fathers cry

    Of all the things I value most of all
    I look inside myself and see
    My world and know that it is good
    You know that I should

    Superstitious century
    Didnít time go slow
    Separating sanity
    Watching children grow
    Synchronated undertaker
    Spiral skies
    Silver ships on plasmic oceans
    In disguise

    Of all the things I value most in life
    I see my memories and feel their warmth
    And know that they are good
    You know that I should

    Watching eyes of celluloid
    Tell you how to live
    Metaphoric motor-replay
    Give, give, give!
    Laughter kissing love
    Is showing me the way
    Spiral city architect
    I build, you pay

    Of all the things I value most of all
    I look upon my earth and feel the warmth
    And know that it is good
    You know that I should
