    Paranoid

    Finished with my woman
    íCause she couldnít help me with my mind
    People think Iím insane
    Because I am frowning all the time

    All day long I think of things
    But nothing seems to satisfy
    Think Iíll lose my mind
    If I donít find something to pacify

    Can you help me
    Occupy my brain
    Oh yeah

    I need someone to show me
    The things in life that I canít find
    I canít see the things that make true happiness
    I must be blind

    Make a joke and I will sigh
    And you will laugh and I will cry
    Happiness I cannot feel
    And love to me is so unreal

    And so as you hear these words
    Telling you now of my state
    I tell you to enjoy life
    I wish I could but itís too late

    Iron Man

    Has he lost his mind
    Can he see or is he blind
    Can he walk at all
    Or if he moves will he fall

    Is he alive or dead
    Has he thoughts within his head
    Weíll just pass him there
    Why should we even care

    He was turned to steel
    In the great magnetic field
    When he traveled time
    For the future of mankind

    Nobody wants him
    He just stares at the world
    Planning his vengeance
    That he will soon unfurl

    Now the time is here
    For Iron Man to spread fear
    Vengeance from the grave
    Kills the people he once saved

    Nobody wants him
    They just turn their heads
    Nobody helps him
    Now he has his revenge

    Heavy boots of lead
    Fill his victims full of dread
    Running as fast as they can
    Iron Man lives again!

    Changes

    I feel unhappy
    I feel so sad
    Iíve lost the best friend
    That I ever had

    She was my woman
    I love her so
    But itís too late now
    Iíve let her go

    Iím going through changes (Repeat)

    We shared the years
    We shared each day
    In love together
    We found a way

    But soon the world
    Had its evil way
    My heart was blinded
    Love went astray

    Iím going through changes (Repeat)

    It took so long To realize
    And I can still hear
    Her last goodbyes

    Now all my days
    Are filled with tears
    Wish I could go back
    And change these years

    Iím going through changes (Repeat)

    War Pigs

    Generals gathered in their masses
    Just like witches at black masses
    Evil minds that plot destruction
    Sorcerers of deathís construction
    In the fields the bodies burning
    As the war machine keeps turning
    Death and hatred to mankind
    Poisoning their brainwashed minds
    Oh Lord yeah

    Politicians hide themselves away
    They only started the war
    Why should they go out to fight
    They leave that all to the poor

    Time will tell on their power minds
    Making war just for fun
    Treating people just like pawns in chess
    Wait till their judgment day comes

    Now in darkness world stops turning
    Ashes were the bodies burning
    No more war pigs have the power
    Hand of God has struck the hour
    Day of Judgment God is calling
    On their knees the war pigs crawling
    Begging mercies for their sins
    Satan laughing spreads his wings
    Oh Lord yeah

    Never Say Die

    People going nowhere
    Taken for a ride
    Looking for the answers that they know inside
    Searching for a reason
    Looking for a rhyme
    Snow white parasite
    Partners in crime

    Donít they ever have to worry
    Donít you ever wonder why
    Itís the part of me that tells you
    Oh donít you ever
    Donít ever say die
    Never, never, never say die

    Sunday satisfaction
    Madness on the rise
    Truth is on the doorstep
    Welcoming the lies
    All dressed up in sorrow
    Got no place to go
    Hold tight do it right
    Taking it slow

    Donít they ever have to worry
    Donít you ever wonder why
    Itís the part of me that tells you
    Oh, donít you ever
    Donít ever say die
    Never, never, never say die

    Donít you ever say die
    Donít you ever say die
    Never say die

    Fading silver lining
    Writingís on the wall
    Children get together
    You can save us all
    Futureís on the corner
    Showing us our time
    Slow down turn around
    Everythingís fine

    Thereís no need to have a reason
    Thereís no need to wonder why
    Itís a part of me that tells you
    Donít you ever, donít ever say die
    Never, never, never say die

    Children Of The Grave

    Revolution in their minds The children start to march
    Against the world in which they have to live
    And all the hate thatís in their hearts
    Theyíre tired of being pushed around
    And told just what to do
    Theyíll fight the world until theyíve won And love comes flowing through.

    Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
    Will the sunrise of tomorrow bring in peace in any way
    Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear
    Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

    So you children of the world, listen to what I say
    If you want a better place to live in spread the word today
    Show the world that love is still alive You must be brave
    Or you children of today are children of the grave.

    The Wizard

    Misty morning
    Clouds in the sky
    Without warning
    A wizard walks by

    Casting his shadow
    Weaving his spell
    Flowing clothes
    Tinkling bell

    Never talking
    Just keeps walking
    Spreading his magic

    Evil power
    Disappears
    Demons worry
    When the wizard is near

    He turns tears
    Into joy
    Everyoneís happy
    When the wizard walks by

    Never talking
    Just keeps walking
    Spreading his magic

    Sun is shining
    Clouds have gone by
    All the people
    Give a happy sigh

    He has passed by
    Giving his sign
    Left all the people
    Feeling so fine

    Never talking
    Just keeps walking
    Spreading his magic

    Snow Blind

    What you get and what you see
    Things that donít come easily
    Feeling happy in my pain
    Icicles within my brain

    Something blowing in my head
    Winds of ice that soon will spread
    Down to freeze my very soul
    Makes me happy, makes me cold

    My eyes are blind, but I can see
    The snowflakes glisten on the tree
    The sun no longer sets me free
    I feel the snowflakes freezing me

    Let the winter sunshine on
    Let me feel the frost of dawn
    Build my dreams on flakes of snow
    Soon Iíll feel the chilling glow

    Donít you think I know what Iím doing
    Donít tell me that itís doing me wrong
    Youíre the one thatís really the loser
    This is where I feel I belong

    Kiss the world with winter flowers
    Turn my days to frozen hours
    Lying snowblind in the sun
    Will my ice age ever come

    Sweet Leaf

    Alright now!
    Wonít you listen?

    When I first met you, didnít realize
    I canít forget you or your surprise
    You introduced me to my mind
    And left me wanting you and your kind

    I love you. Oh you know it.

    My life was empty forever on a down
    Until you took me, showed me around
    My life is free now, my life is clear
    I love you sweet leaf—though you canít hear.

    Come on now—try it out

    Straight people donít know what youíre about
    They put you down and shut you out
    You gave to me a new belief
    And soon the world will love you sweet leaf.

    Evil Woman, Don't Play Your Games With Me

    I see the look of evil in your eyes
    Woman filling me all full of lies
    Sorrow will not change your shameful deeds
    You will pass someone elseís bitter seed

    Evil woman donít you play your games with me
    Evil woman donít you play your games with me

    Now I know just what youíre looking for
    You want me to claim this child you bore
    Well you know that it must not be
    And you know the way itís got to be

    Evil woman donít you play your games with me
    Evil woman donít you play your games with me
    (Repeat)

    Wickedness lies in your poisoned lips
    Your body moves just like the crack of a whip
    Blackness sleeps on top of your slate bed
    Donít you wish that you could see me dead

    Evil woman donít you play your games with me
    Evil woman donít you play your games with me
    (Repeat)

    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

    Black Sabbath

    What is this that stands before me
    Figure in black which points at me
    Turn íround quick and start to run
    Find out Iím the chosen one. Oh no!

    Big black shape with eyes of fire
    Telling people their desire
    Satan sitting there heís smiling
    Watch those flames get higher and higher.
    Oh no, no
    Please God help me!

    This is the end my friend
    Satanís coming round the bend
    People running ícause theyíre scared
    You people better go and beware
    No! No! Please! No!
