Black Sabbath BLACK SABBATH Lyrics

Last updated: 04/27/2014 03:14:56 PM

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 this 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!

Incredible lead | Reviewer: Tom | 1/1/2005

I know music has come a long way, but if you're old enough to remember; or imaginative enough to transport yourself back in time... back to roughly 1970, you'll realize that there was nothing; no music to compare to this!

I'm not gonna analyze or label this song, or the band, or its place in history. I don't wanna talk about the "heavy" riffs, or the "Satanic" overtones, or the "darker" side of rock & roll; it's all been done before.

But as a matter of personal opinion... Bill, Geezer, Ozzy and Tony created some of the best music ever recorded. This particular song STILL (I'm 40) can bring a chill over me like few others... The emotion and fear that Ozzy brings in is incredible, yes. And Bill and Geezer are both one-of-a-kind, true. But the main LEAD, played to the end of the song, by a guy missing a couple of fingertips, is just phenominal!

Remember, nothing like this existed prior. These guys created, defined, and wrote the book on ALL METAL, most hard-rock, some blues and even a few ballads, to come.

And that's my two cents....
