BLACK SABBATH "13" ALBUM LYRICS

AGE OF REASON

Verse 1
DO YOU HEAR THE THUNDER
RAGING IN THE SKY
PREMONITION OF A SHATTERED WORLD
THAT'S GONNA DIE

IN THE AGE OF REASON
HOW DO WE SURVIVE
THE PROTOCOLS OF EVIL RAVAGING
SO MANY LIVES

Verse 2
MYSTIFYING SILENCE
TALKING PEACE ON EARTH
WE SHOULD JUDGE EACH OTHER FOR OURSELVES
NOT WHAT WE'RE WORTH

SUSTAINABLE EXTINCTION
A FRACTURED HUMAN RACE
A JADED REVOLUTION DISAPPEARS
WITHOUT A TRACE

Mid 8
ALWAYS FELT THAT THERE'D BE TROUBLE
MASS DISTRACTION HIDES THE TRUTH
PROZAC DAYS AND SLEEPLESS HOURS
SEEDS OF CHANGE THAT DON'T BEAR FRUIT

Verse 3
THESE TIMES ARE HEAVY
AND YOU'RE ALL ALONE
THE BATTLE'S OVER
BUT THE WAR GOES ON

POLITICS, RELIGION
LOVE OF MONEY TOO
IT'S WHAT THE WORLD WAS BUILT FOR
BUT NOT FOR ME AND YOU


DAMAGED SOUL

Verse 1 
BORN IN A GRAVEYARD ADOPTED BY SIN
I CULTIVATE EVIL THAT'S LIVING WITHIN
A PREACHER TRIED SAVING MY BLACK DAMAGED SOUL 
POSSESSED BY A DEMON THAT HAD FULL CONTROL 

Verse 2 
THE TIME IT IS COMING WHEN ALL LIFE WILL END
WITH DOOMSDAY APPROACHING TO HELL WE'LL DESCEND 
RELIGION WON'T SAVE ME THE DAMAGE IS DONE 
THE FUTURE HAS ENDED BEFORE IT'S BEGUN 

Middle 8 
DEATH'S HAND AND THE CRAZY
I CAN'T STAND THE LIGHT OF DAY 
WATCHING ALL THE VICTIMS
ON THEIR KNEES AS THEY PRAY
GOD OF THE ALMIGHTY
NEVER ANSWERS THEIR CALL
SATAN IS JUST WAITING
FOR THE RIGHTEOUS TO FALL TO HIM 

Verse 3 
I DON'T MIND DYING 'CAUSE I'M ALREADY DEAD
PRAY NOT FOR THE LIVING I'LL LIVE IN YOUR HEAD 
DYING IS EASY IT'S LIVING THAT'S HARD
I'M LOSING THE BATTLE BETWEEN SATAN AND GOD 



DEAR FATHER


A CHILDHOOD INNOCENCE
WAS DROWNED IN YOUR TEARS
THE DEMONS THAT YOU FOUGHT
ARE FEEDING YOUR FEARS
THE POISONED SECRETS
OF YOUR LIFE STAND REVEALED
THE TRUTH DESTROYS YOU
ITS NO LONGER CONCEALED

DEAR FATHER FORSAKEN
YOU KNEW WHAT YOU WERE DOING
IN SILENCE YOUR VIOLENCE
HAS LEFT MY LIFE IN RUIN YEAH
IN RUIN YEAH

YOU PREYED UPON MY FLESH
THEN PRAYED FOR MY SOUL
BELIEF BETRAYED BY LUST
THE FAITH THAT YOU STOLE
INDOCTRINATION BY A TWISTED DESIRE
THE CATECHISM OF AN EVIL MESSIAH

DEAR FATHER FORGIVE ME
I KNOW JUST WHAT I'M DOING
IN SILENCE THIS VIOLENCE
WILL LEAVE YOUR LIFE IN RUIN YEAH
IN RUIN YEAH



End Of The Beginning


IS THIS THE END OF THE BEGINNING
OR THE BEGINNING OF THE END
LOSING CONTROL OR ARE YOU WINNING
IS YOUR LIFE REAL OR JUST PRETEND

HEAVY VERSE 1REANIMATION OF THE SEQUENCE
REWINDS THE FUTURE TO THE PAST
TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THE SOLUTION
THE SYSTEM HAS TO BE RECAST

RELEASE YOUR MIND
FAST FORWARD TO THE SECRETS OF YOUR CODE
YOUR LIFE'S ON OVERLOAD
DELETE OR SAVE
THE UNITS THAT MAKE YOU AN ENTITY
THAT'S YOUR IDENTITY

IF YOU DON'T KNOW, WHICH WAY TO GO
YOU MAY FEEL LOST AND CONFUSED
A SECOND CHANCE YOUR TIME TO LOSE






LIVE FOREVER

Verse 1
JUST BEFORE YOU DIE
THEY SAY YOU'LL SEE YOUR LIFE GO FLASHING BY
COLD DARK ENDLESS NIGHT
TO BURN IN HELL OR BATHE IN HEAVEN'S LIGHT

Chorus 1
WELL I DON'T WANT TO LIVE FOREVER
BUT I DON'T WANT TO DIE
I MAY BE DREAMING BUT WHATEVER
I LIVE INSIDE A LIE

Verse 2
DAYS PASS BY TOO SOON
WAITING FOR THE RISING OF THE MOON
NO ESCAPE FROM HERE
FACING DEATH BUT IS YOUR CONSCIENCE CLEAR

Chorus 2
I MAY BE DREAMING OR WHATEVER
WATCHING MY LIFE GO BY
AND I DON'T WANT TO LIVE FOREVER
BUT I DON'T WANT TO DIE

Chorus 3
WELL I DON'T WANT TO LIVE FOREVER
BUT I DON'T WANT TO DIE
I MAY BE DREAMING BUT WHATEVER
I LIVE INSIDE A LIE

Outro
DON'T WANT TO LIVE FOREVER
BUT I DON'T WANT TO DIE
DON'T WANT TO LIVE FOREVER
BUT I DON'T WANT TO DIE



LONER

HE'S JUST A LONER
HE NEVER SAYS HELLO
A FRIEND TO NO ONE
HE'S GOT NO PLACE TO GO

HE DON'T LOOK HAPPY
HE LOOKS THROUGH FURTIVE EYES
HE AINT GOT NOTHING
NO ONE TO SYMPATHIZE

HE HIDES HIMSELF AWAY
HIS SECRETS NOT REVEALED
AS LIFE JUST PASSES BY
HE KEEPS HIMSELF CONCEALED

A SOLITARY MAN
AN ENIGMATIC CHILD
A RIDDLE NEVER SOLVED
A PRISONER EXILED

I WONDER IF THE LONER
CAN ASSIMILATE
A LIFE LESS LIVED ALONE
PLAYS DEVIL'S ADVOCATE

HAS HE EVER TRIED TO BE HAPPY
REACHED OUT FROM INSIDE
SOMEONE ON WHO HE CAN DEPEND
IT'S GETTING TOO LATE TO RECOVER
HE WON'T STAND A CHANCE
AND INTO HIS OWN HELL HE'LL
DESCEND
DON'T DESCEND

NO UNDERSTANDING
OF THINGS WE ALREADY KNOW
HE HAS TO LIVE HIS LIFE
AND JUST LEARN HOW TO LET GO

COMMUNICATION'S
AN IMPOSSIBILITY
HIS OWN BEST FRIEND
BUT HE'S HIS OWN WORST ENEMY
THE SECRETS OF HIS PAST
LOCKED DEEP INSIDE HIS HEAD
I WONDER IF HE WILL BE HAPPY
WHEN HE'S DEAD


ZEITGEIST

Verse 1
ASTRAL ENGINES IN REVERSE 
I'M FALLING THROUGH THE UNIVERSE AGAIN 
DOWN AMONG THE DEADMEN'S VISION
FADED DREAMS AND NUCLEAR FISSION SPENT 

Chorus 1
THE STRINGS OF THEORY ARE HOLDING UP THE RACE 
THE PUPPETS FALLING TO THE GROUND
THE LOVE I FEEL AS I FLY ENDLESSLY THRU SPACE
LOST IN TIME, I WONDER WILL MY SHIP BE FOUND

Verse 2
ON THIS SINKING SHIP I TRAVEL
FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT
NOT SO SUPERNOVA BURNS 
THE BLACK HOLES TURN AND FADE FROM SIGHT 

Chorus 2	
THE STRINGS OF THEORY HIDE IN THE HUMAN RACE 
THE ANSWERS BURIED UNDERGROUND
THE LOVE I FEEL AS I FLY ENDLESSLY THRU SPACE
LOST IN TIME, I WONDER WILL MY SHIP BE FOUND

Outro
AND VERY SOON 
THE BOMBER'S MOON 
WILL SHOW US LIGHT
AND AS WE CRASH 
WE'LL PRAY AND KISS 
AND SAY GOODNIGHT 
GOODNIGHT
