"Computer God" as written by Tony Iommi, Terrence Butler and Ronnie James Dio....
Waiting for the revolution
New clear vision, genocide
Computerize God, it's the new religion
Program the brain, not the heartbeat

Onward all you crystal soldiers
Touch tomorrow, energize
Digital dreams
And you're the next correction
Man's a mistake so we'll fix it, yeah

Take a look at your own reflection
Right before your eyes
It turns to steel

[Chorus:]
There's another side of heaven
This way, to technical paradise
Find it on the other side
When the walls fall down

Love is automatic pleasure
Virtual reality
Terminal hate, it's a calculation
Send in the child for connection

Take a look at the toys around you
Right before your eyes
The toys are real

[Chorus]

Midnight confessions
Never heal the soul
What you believe is fantasy

Your past is your future
Left behind
Lost in time
Will you surrender

Waiting for the revolution
Program the brain
Not the heartbeat

Deliver us to evil
Deny us of our faith
Robotic hearts bleed poison
On the world we populate

Virtual existence
With a superhuman mind
The ultimate creation
Destroyer of mankind

Termination of our youth
For we do not compute
No!

    General CommentAbout us relying on computers, and then computers coming back and biting us in the ass. Sort of like Terminator/The Matrix.

    General CommentThe album was released in 1992, so the first two Terminator movies came out. Matrix didn't come out until 1998, though.

    General CommentThis song is about a terrible cycle: humans created the computer to process information at our command, yet now computers are gaining intelligence of their own and transforming people into cold beings who "Program the brain, not the heartbeat." The Computer God is the Dehumanizer that the album's title references-mankind is losing the characteristics that of humanity.

    General CommentThe title says it all, A COMPUTER GOD. In the end it doesn't need the youth(humanity as a whole I guess) and it "terminates" it.

    General CommentIt's about Mankind losing their human traits and technology taking over and destroying all that is left of our humanity. This what the album is all about, the dehumanization of mankind.

    General CommentYou guys got it, its kind of like the terminator. We make the computers and then they come back to kill us and take over the world. Great song, the best off of Dehumanizer. although the whole album is pretty great.

    General CommentI agree, IBZ, my fave from Dehumanizer which indeed is strong and solid. Children Of The Sea, to my mind, appears to fit with this, almost like a first part.
