"Devil & Daughter" as written by Anthony Philip Harford, Cozy Powell and Tony Iommi....
Silence is mocking the dawn of a new day
Devil and Daughter are both on their way
The evil of her nature collects in her eyes
With him there's no fear of the dawn bringing light

Baptised with fire, too wild to be tamed
She's hot, evil and ready to take any man
Let no one put assunder the power of the pain
He is the master of hell riding again

Devil and Daughter - pleasure and pain
Devil and Daughter - is this the end

A thousand times over, you'll hear on the wind
in the name of hell, these sinners never sinned
But Satan never listens to the words that they send
Drenching the soul with blood, when will it end

Devil and Daughter
he's got the power, she's got the pain
Devil and Daughter
She'll break any woman and take any man
Devil and Daughter
Hand in hand with the reaper

    General CommentMartin is my favorite vocalist throughout Sabbath. He is definately underrated, and never is liked the most. But this song is awesome.

    General Comment"Devil And Daughter" itself is about Don Arden and Sharon Osbourne, Black Sabbath's former manager and his daughter, who is also the wife and manager of Ozzy Osbourne, respectively. "Digital Bitch" from the album Born Again is believed to be about them too.

    A great track. I bouth the Vinyl when it came out :)

    General CommentDon Arden and Sharon Osbourne is the meaning? I don't get that from the lyrics. If so, then it was really written ambiguous! Anyway, classic Sabbath track and Tony Martin was a great fit for the band.
