"The Sabbath Stones" as written by Anthony Philip Harford, Cozy Powell, Neil Murray, Tony Iommi and Geoffrey Nicholls....
Fire and water, wind and rain
Wings that carry hell in every vein
World Possessions, endless tears
Truth and knowledge stolen all their years

World turns slowly, sun don't shine
Silence stills the air and kills the chime
Words are poison, passion bleeds
2000 years on earth has sown the seeds

The time of dreams has turned
The night is gone and the light shines on
Where darkness once would hide
With spirits high, our fears were born

[Chorus]
Receiver of light, the kingdom of God will guide you
Keep you from a restless heart
Deceiver of night the stranger that laughs
Within you, the reason for your restless heart
Is the keeper of the Sabbath Stones

Fire and water, wind and rain
Wings that carry hell in every vein
World turns slowly, sun don't shine
Silence stills the air and kills the chime

Can faith destroy desire? Each breath a prayer each step brings fear
The eyes of they that see have evil stare
Watch over me

[Chorus]

And He's the keeper if the Sabbath Stones

What God is this that stands to hear his people cry?
What hand would strike and watch his people die? What life that takes, what future did we earn? It's our mistakes, take heed the Sabbath Stones

What life that takes what future did we earn? It's our mistakes

    General CommentThe Sabbath Stones are the Ten Commandments. The song is basically about how religious leaders throughout history told people to take heed of them but on the other hand slew every unbeliever.

    Anyway one of the best songs of the Tony Martin era.
