"Supernaut" as written by and Terence Butler Frank Iommi....
I want to reach out and touch the sky
I want to touch the sun but I don't need to fly
I'm gonna climb up every mountain of the moon
And find a distant man a-waving his spoon

I've crossed the ocean, turned every bend
I found the crossing near a golden rainbow's end
I've been through magic and through life's reality
I've lived a thousand years and it never bothered me

Got no religion, don't need no friends
Got all I want and I don't need to pretend
Don't try to reach me, 'cause I'd tear up your mind
I've seen the future and I've left it behind

    General CommentSupernaut = a play on the word psychonaut.
    Psychonaut (according to wikipedia.org) = A psychonaut (literally, an explorer of the psyche) is a person who uses psychoactive entheogens as guides, or means, to achieve inward spiritual experiences, and who reflects upon these experiences and applies them to his or her own life in a positive way, with the intent of bettering himself or herself. This is quite distinct from religious use, or social and leisure use of drugs, although invariably these overlap.

    Oh and radiofreesrini, your cover sux.

    General Commentozzy wrote very few Sabbath lyrics...its nearly all Geezer Butler....Vol $ is basically all about cocaine...as is given away by the dedication on the back of the album

    General CommentI agree with sentry in a way the lyrics are not always the only meaning in a song, often the instraments say alot more but if I only look at the lyrics I would say that its about a man that has all he wants in life and just wants to be left alone to expierience life on his own.

    General CommentI think 'Supernaut' is a play on 'astronaut'. It kind of goes along with the theme.

    General CommentThis is for sure about the effect of cocain. The feeling of release and nothing is impossible.
    In ozzy's self biography "I am ozzy" he also states that "I can actually taste the cocain when listening to supernaut"

    Cocain was the thing under recording of Vol4. Snowblind,supernaut and ofcourse the "We ish to thanks the great COKE-Cola company of los angeles" which it says in the album.
