"Behind The Wall Of Sleep" as written by and Ward Iommi....
Visions cupped within a flower
Deadly petals with strange power
Faces shine a deadly smile
Look upon you at your trial

Chill and numbs from head to toe
Icy sun with frosty glow
Words that grow read to your sorrow?
Words that grow read no tomorrow?

Feel your spirit rise with the breeze
Feel your body falling to its knees
Sleeping wall of remorse
Turns your body to a corpse
Turns your body to a corpse
Turns your body to a corpse
Sleeping wall of remorse
Turns your body to a corpse

Now from darkness, there springs light
Wall of Sleep is cool and bright
Wall of Sleep is lying broken
Sun shines in, you have awoken

    General CommentI don't think its so not about recreational drugs as it seems more of a passage into the spirit world and the return back. Too easy for straight and narrows to label everything they don't understand as druggie bable.
