Lyrics


1. PARANOID

Finished with my woman
'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane
Because I am frowning all the time

All day long I think of things
But nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind
If I don't 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 can't find
I can't 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 it's too late




2. I DON'T KNOW

People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind

Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look at me for answers
Don't ask me
I don't know

How am I supposed to know
Hidden meanings that will never show
Fools and prophets from the past
Life's a stage and we're all in the cast

Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right
Asking me who to follow, don't ask me
I don't know,
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

Nobody ever told me I found out for myself
Ya gotta believe in foolish miracles
It's not how you play the game
It's if you win or lose you can choose
Don't confuse win or lose, it's up to you
It's up to you - it's up to you - it's up to you

People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind

Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look at me for answers
Don't ask me
I don't know

How am I supposed to know
Hidden meanings that will never show
Fools and prophets from the past
Life's a stage and we're all in the cast

Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right
Asking me who to follow, don't ask me
I don't know,
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know




3. I DON'T WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD

Standing at the crossroads, world spinning round and round
Know which way I'm going, you can't bring me down
Don't you try and teach me no original sin
I don't need no pity for the shape I'm in

I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me

Tell me I'm a sinner I got news for you
I spoke to God this morning and he don't like you
You telling all the people the original sin
He says he knows you better than you'll ever know him

You know it ain't easy
You know it ain't fair
So don't try to please me
Because I really don't care

Don't tell me stories 'cause yesterday's glories
Have gone away, so far away
I've heard it said there's a light up ahead
Lord I hope and pray I'm here to stay




4. DESIRE

I always knew what I wanted to be
I knew for sure, I knew for sure
Always knew it was them or me
I wanted more, more and more

It's all right, it's okay
None of them people gonna take it away
Cause they don't know, like I know
And I can't stop 'cause it drives them crazy
It drives them crazy, 'cause I won't be cool
It's too late baby

It's the same old desire
Nothing has changed, nothing's the same
Burning like fire
Don't you ever take my name in vain

Always moving somewhere else to be
Moving on, moving on
Scream at you and you scream at me
Right or wrong, right or wrong

It's all right, it's okay
No one's ever gonna take us away
'Cause they don't know, like I know
I gotta keep rockin' cause it makes me crazy
It makes me crazy, who needs to be cool
Life's amazing

It's that same old desire
Crazy train, crazy train




5. MR. CROWLEY

Mr. Crowley, what went on in your head
Mr. Crowley, did you talk with the dead
Your life style to me seemed so tragic
With the thrill of it all
You fooled all the people with magic
You waited on Satan's call

Mr. Charming, did you think you were pure
Mr. Alarming, in nocturnal rapport
Uncovering things that were sacred manifest on this Earth
Conceived in the eye of a secret
And they scattered the afterbirth

Mr. Crowley, won't you ride my white horse
Mr. Crowley, it's symbolic of course
Approaching a time that is classic
I hear maidens call

Approaching a time that is drastic
Standing with their backs to the wall
Was it polemically sent

l wanna know what you meant
I wanna know
I wanna know what you meant




6. ROAD TO NOWHERE

I was looking back on my life
And all the things I've done to me
I'm still looking for the answers
I'm still searching for the key

The wreckage of my past keeps haunting me
It just won't leave me alone
I still find it all a mystery
Could it be a dream?
The road to nowhere leads to me

Through all the happiness and sorrow
I guess I'd do it all again
Live for today and not tomorrow

Ah ah
The road to nowhere's gonna pass me by
Ah ah
I hope we never have to say goodbye
I never want to live without you




7. NO MORE TEARS

The light in the window is a crack in the sky
A stairway to darkness in the blink of an eye
A levee of tears to learn she'll never be coming back
The man in the dark will bring another attack

Your momma told you that you're not supposed to
talk to strangers
Look in the mirror tell me do you think your life's
in danger here ya

No more tears

Another day passes as the night closes in
The red light goes on to say it's time to begin

I see the man around the corner waiting does he see me ?
I close my eyes and wait to hear the sound of someone screaming here

No more tears

So now that it's over can't we just say goodbye?
I'd like to move on and make the most of the night

Maybe a kiss before I leave you this way
Your lips are so cold I don't know what else to say

I never wanted it to end this way my love my darling
Believe me when I say to you in love I think I'm falling here

No more tears




8. FLYING HIGH AGAIN

Got a crazy feeling I don't understand
Gotta get away from here
Feelin' like I shoulda kept my feet on the ground
Waitin' for the sun to appear

Mamma's gonna worry
I been a bad bad boy
No use sayin' sorry
It's something that I enjoy'

Cause you can't see what my eyes see
(I can see it, I can see it)
And you can't be inside of me, flying high again

I can see through the mountains watch me disappear
I can even touch the sky
Swallowing colours of the sound I hear
Am I just a crazy guy. (You bet)

Mamma's gonna worry
I been a bad bad boy
No use sayin' sorry
It's something that I enjoy

If you could be inside my head
You'd see that black and white is red
Flying high again
Flying high again
Flying high again
Flying high again come on and join me
Flying high again
Flying high again
Flying high again
Flying high again come on and join me

Daddy thinks I'm lazy he don't understand
Never saw inside my head
People think I'm crazy but I'm in demand
Never heard a thing I said.

Mamma's gonna worry
I been a bad bad boy
No use sayin' sorry
It's something that I enjoy
Flying high again
Flying high again
Flying high again
Flying high again




9. SUICIDE SOLUTION

Wine is fine
But whiskey's quicker
suicide is slow with liquor
Take a bottle drain your sorrows
Then it floods away tomorrow

Evil thoughts and evil doings
Cold, alone you hang in ruins
Thought you'd escape the reaper
You can't escape the master keeper

'Cause you feel life's unreal and you're living a lie
Such a shame who's to blame and you're wondering why
Then you ask from your cask is there life after birth
What you saw can mean hell on this earth
hell on this earth

Now you live inside a bottle
The reaper's travelling at full throttle
It's catching you but you don't see
The reaper is you and the reaper is me

Breaking laws, knocking doors
But there's no one at home
Made your bed, rest your head
But you lie there and moan
Where to hide, suicide is the only way out
Don't you know what it's really about

Wine is fine
But whiskey's quicker
Suicide is slow with liquor
Take a bottle drown your sorrows
Then it floods away tomorrow

10. GOODBYE TO ROMANCE

Yesterday has been and gone
Tomorrow will I find the sun
or will it rain
Everybody's having fun
Except me I'm the lonely one
I live in shame

[Chorus]

I said goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends, I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we'll meet
we'll meet in the end
I've been the king, I've been the clown
now broken wings can't hold me down
I'm free again
The jester with the broken crown
It won't be me this time around
to love in vain

[Chorus]

and I feel the time is right
although I know that you just might say to me
what you gonna do
what you gonna do
But I have to check this chance
goodbye to friends and to romance
And to all of you
And to all of you
Come'on now!

[Chorus]

and the winter is looking fine
and I think the sun will shine again
and I feel I've cleaned my mind
all the past is left behind again

[Chorus]




11. SHOT IN THE DARK

Out on the streets I'm stalking the night
I can hear my heavy breathing
Paid for the kill, but it doesn't seem right
Something there I can't believe in
Voices are calling from inside my head
I can hear them, I can hear them
Vanishing memories of things that were said
They can't try to hurt me now

But a shot in the dark
One step away from you
Just a shot in the dark
Always creeping up on you
All right

Taught by the powers that preach over me
I can hear their empty reasons
I wouldn't listen, I learned how to fight
I opened up my mind to treason
But just like the wounded, and when it's too late
They'll remember, they'll surrender
Never a care for the people who hate
Underestimate me now

But a shot in the dark
One step away from you
Just a shot in the dark
Nothing that you can do
Just a shot in the dark
Always creeping up on you
All right

But just like the wounded, and when it's too late
They'll remember, they'll surrender
Never a care for the people who hate
Underestimate me now

But a shot in the dark
One step away from you
Just a shot in the dark
Nothing that you can do
Just a shot in the dark
Always creeping up on you
All right

Just a shot in the dark
Just a shot in the dark
Just a shot in the dark
Just a shot in the dark




12. MIRACLE MAN

I'm looking for a miracle man
That tells me no lies
I'm looking for a miracle man
Who's not in disguise
I don't know where he'll come from
And I don't know where he's been
But it's not our Jimmy Sinner
Because he's so obscene
Miracle man
Got busted
Today I saw a miracle man
On TV cryin'
Such a hypocritical man
Born again dying
He don't know where he's going
But we know where he's been
It was our little Jimmy Sinner
On the screen
A devil with a crucifix
Brimstone and fire
He needs another carnal fix
To take him higher and higher
Now Jimmy he got busted
With his pants down
Repent ye wretched sinners
Self righteous clown




13. WAR PIGS

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's 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 role to the poor, yeah!

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah !

Now in darkness, world stops turning
As is where the bodies' burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of god has struck the hour

Day of judgement, god is calling
On their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings, oh lord yeah !




14. CHANGES

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

She was my woman
I loved her so
But it's too late now
I've let her go

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

We shared the eve's
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

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

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

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

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes




15. BARK AT THE MOON

Screams break the silence
Waking from the dead of night
Vengeance is boiling
He's returned to kill the light
Then when he's found who he's looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him

Bark at the moon

Years spent in torment
Buried in a nameless grave
Now he has risen
Miracles would have to save
Those that the beast is looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him

Bark at the moon

They cursed and buried him
Along with shame
And thought his timeless soul had gone
In empty burning Hell-unholy one
But now he's returned to prove them wrong

Howling in shadows
Living in a lunar spell
He finds his heaven
Spewing from the mouth of hell

And when he finds who he's looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him Bark at the moon




16. MAMA I'M COMING HOME

Times have changed and times are strange
Here I come but I ain't the same
Mama, I'm coming home

Times gone by seem to be
You could have been a better friend to me
Mama, I'm coming home

Took me in and you drove me out
Yeah, you had me hypnotized
Lost and found and turned around
By the fire in your eyes

You made me cry, told me lies
But, I can't stand to say goodbye
Mama I'm coming home

I could be right, I could be wrong
Hurts so bad, it's been so long
Mama, I'm coming home

Selfish love yeah, we're both alone
The ride before a fall
But I'm gonna take this heart of stone
I just got to have it all

I've seen your face a hundred times
Every day we've been apart
I don't care about the sunshine, yeah
Cause mama, mama I'm coming home




17. CRAZY TRAIN

Crazy, but that's how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it's not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing
Driving me insane
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

I've listened to preachers
I've listened to fools
I've watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words
Yeah

Heirs of a cold war
That's what we've become
Inheriting troubles I'm mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I'm living with something that just isn't fair

Mental wounds not healing
Who and what's to blame
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train




18. BLACK SABBATH

What is this that stands before me ?
Figure in black which points at me
Turn around quick, and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one
Oh nooo!
Big black shape with eyes of fire
Telling people their desire
Satan's sitting there, he's smiling
Watches those flames get higher and higher
Oh no, no, please God help me !
Is it the end, my friend ?
Satan's coming 'round the bend
People running 'cause they're scared
The people better go and beware !
No, no, please, no !
