The Writ

This song is by Black Sabbath and appears on the album Sabotage (1975).

Original video
The way I feel is the way I am
I wish I'd walked before I started to run to you
Just to you

What kind of people do you think we are?
Another joker who's a rock and roll star for you
Just for you

The faithful image of another man
The endless ocean of emotion I swam for you
Yeah, for you

The shot troopers laying down on the floor
I wish they'd put an end to my private war with you
Yeah, with you

Are you metal, are you man?
You've changed a lot since you began
Yeah, began

Ladies digging gold from you
Will they still dig now you're through?
Yeah, you're through

You bought and sold me with your lying words
The voices in the deck that you never heard came through
Yeah, came through

Your folly finally got to spend with a God
A poisoned father who has poisoned his son, that's you
Yeah, that's you

I beg you please don't let it get any worse
The anger I once had has turned to a curse on you
Yeah, curse you

All of the promises that never came true
You're gonna get what is coming to you, that's true
Ah, that's true

Are you Satan, are you man?
You've changed a lot since it began
It began

Vultures sucking gold from you
Will they still suck now you're through?

(Cats, Rats)

The search is on, so you just better run
And find yourself another way
Rob the dead, they don't feel a thing
Keep them living for another day

(Rats, Rat)

You are nonentity, you have no destiny
You are a figment of a thing unknown
A mantle picture of a stolen soul
A fornication of your golden throne

A smiling face, it means the world to me, yeah
So tired of sadness and of misery, yeah

My life it started some time ago
Where it will end, I don't know
I thought I was so good
I thought I was fine
I feel my world is out of time

But everything is gonna work out fine, yeah
If it don't I think I'll lose my mind

I know
I know
I know
Yeah, yeah, I know

Listen to me while I sing this song
You might just think the words are wrong
Too many people advising me
But they don't know what my eyes see

But everything is gonna work out fine
If it don't I think I'll blow my mind, yeah
