"Cornucopia" as written by and Terence Butler Frank Iommi....
Too much near the truth they say
Keep it 'til another day
Let them have their little game
Delusion helps to keep them sane

Let them have their little toys
Matchbox cars and more kids joys
Exciting in their plastic ways
Frozen food in a concrete place

Your gonna go insane
I'm tryin' to save your brain

Alright!

I don't know what's happening
My head's all torn inside
People say I'm heavy
They don't know what I hide

Take a life it's going cheap
Kill someone no one will weep
Freedom's yours just pay your dues
We just want your soul to use

Your gonna go insane
I'm tryin' to save your brain

    General CommentI think this song is about how people are deceived by wealth and their materialistic desires. Mislead to the point where they aren't really living anymore.

    Also I should note that instead of 'concrete place' it should be "concrete maze".

    General Comment"Cornucopia is of course a symbol - a metaphor of wealth and fertility. The name is more than sufficient
    since the song criticizes the so called modern prosperity."

    it's about how we might think we are all living in prosperity but the truth is that we aren't and eventually we will all see the truth... and go insane but ozzy's just trying to save our brain for it ;)

    General CommentCornucopia is something also to Greek Mythology. But anyways, this is my favorite off "Vol. 4".

    General CommentGeezer talks about modern way of life and moral values with irony, fame, fortune and lack of kindness among people in general when each individual is measured by what he possess and come he can be useful to the system. very nice and strange lyrics
