"Letters From Earth" as written by Terrence Butler, Tony Iommi and Ronnie James Dio....
Well it's a cold world
And I'm in the middle
Caught in the in-between

I don't belong here
So I'm writing to you
It's wrong here
Where I'm sending you some

Letters from earth, yeah

Well it's a new world
And now I'm a stranger
Stranger than you know

I don't belong here
And I'm writing to you
With blood on my hands

What if I send you madness
What if I send you pain
And letters from earth, ooh
All right

Come on it's another game
But you gotta play on
Cause they say it's just pretend
Ask them why they say you'll never, never die
Come on the game is called the end

Well it's a cold world
And I'm in the middle
Caught in the in-between

I don't belong here
So I'm writing to you
Hey let me explain

What if I send you confusion
What is the time and the pain worth
Oh no no
I'm only sending
Letters from the earth

Letters from earth

    General CommentIt always worries me to think that maybe I'm not something of this world, that maybe I don't belong here, with all of these people who are so different than me. Imagine if they all lived on some planet that they thought was Earth, and I was the only one who was in the right place, and I guess I'd just send them letters from Earth.

    General CommentThis is from the viewpoint of someone who dosent belong on earth and sending madness and pain is like sending feeling from earth, there may some military references.

    Song MeaningBlack Sabbath: Letters From Earth (Alternate Lyrics from 12" Single Version).

    It's a cold world
    And I'm in the middle
    Caught in the in-between

    I don't belong here
    So I'm writing to you
    They never understand
    So I'm sending you some

    Letters from earth, yeah

    It's a new world
    And now I'm a stranger
    Stranger than you know

    I don't belong here
    And I'm writing to you
    With blood on my hands

    What if I send you madness
    What if I send you pain
    And letters from earth, ooh
    All right

    I see through the masquerade
    The secret faces
    The lie behind the smile
    They can make the water
    Taste just like the wine

    Come on it's another game
    And we gotta play on
    They say it's just pretend
    But did you ever ask them why
    The game is called the end

    I don't want your money, man
    I just want a part of you
    I can hear your voice of getting
    Seems to belong in my brain

    I don't want your pretty, no
    I just want the heart out of you
    Don't you think I said too much for now, hah
    Don't be afraid

    What if I send confusion
    What is the time and the pain worth
    Oh no no
    I'm only sending -
    Letters from the earth

    General CommentI'm not into religion or believing in god but i think the song is about a person who sees all the pain and death, war and sickness and prays to god. He doesn't belong here, because he's not a warmonger or criminal, he's a good person with faith, so he asks what would God do if he gets some Letters from Earth (showing life on Earth and what's going on)
