"Shock Wave" as written by and Anthony Iommi Terence Butler....
There's no reason for you to run
You can't escape the fate of the chosen one
Black moon rising, in a blood red sky
This time you realise that you're gonna die

Drinking your blood brew is your answer
That's what you plan to do
No dreaming, time you cheat this master
You're on your own going through

Wind of mist has taken over your mind
And you think you're on your own
Don't believe you are the only one here
Look around, you're not alone

Feel the forces from another world
Ghostly shadows fill your mind
Evil power hanging over you
As you freeze, you're like a child
Look behind you!

Somebody's calling
Someone is near
Feel yourself falling
Falling with fear
You tell yourself you're dreaming
You realise you're screaming
You know that this shouldn't happen to you
You tell yourself that it's scary too
But there is nothing you can do, oh!

Ghostly shadows from the other world
Evil forces in your mind
Trapped between the worlds of life and death
Frozen in the realms of time
Look behind you!

You feel yourself falling, you're at the end of the line
Your body is crawling, but your senses are blind
Cold, cold feelings are running through your brains
Ice cold fingers, running through your veins

    General CommentLOL! "Drinking your blood brew"!! You gotta love it.

    Now here's the correct version:

    There's no reason for you to run.
    You can't escape the fate of the chosen one.
    Black moon rising in a blood red sky,
    This time you realize that you're gonna die.

    Freezing your body is your answer.
    That's what you plan to do.
    Floating in time you cheat death’s master.
    You're on your own going through…

    When darkness has taken over your mind,
    And you think you're on your own,
    Don't believe you are the only one here.
    Look around; you're not alone.

    Feel the forces from another world.
    Ghostly shadows fill your mind.
    Evil power hanging over you,
    As you freeze your life in time.
    Look behind you!

    Somebody's calling.
    Someone is near.
    Feel yourself falling.
    Crawling with fear.
    You tell yourself you're dreaming.
    You realize you're screaming.

    You know that this shouldn't happen to you.
    You tell yourself that it just can’t be true.
    But there is nothing you can do, oh!

    Ghostly shadows from the other world,
    Evil forces in your mind.
    Trapped between the walls of life and death,
    Frozen in the realms of time.
    Look behind you!

    You feel yourself falling; you're at the end of the line.
    Your body is calling, but your senses are blind.
    Cool, cool feelings are running through your brains.
    Ice cold fingers, flowing through your vein…

    General CommentThis song has nothing to do with drugs - a common misconception for those that smoke a lot of pot - they think EVERYTHING'S about dope.
