"Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" as written by and W. Ward F. Iommi....
You've seen life through distorted eyes
You know you had to learn
The execution of your mind
You really had to turn
The race is run the book is read
The end begins to show
The truth is out, the lies are old
But you don't want to know

Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reasons why
They just tell you that you're on your own
Fill your head all full of lies

The people who have crippled you
You want to see them burn
The gates of life have closed on you
And now there's just no return
You're wishing that the hands of doom
Could take your mind away
And you don't care if you don't see again
The light of day

Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reasons why
They just tell you that you're on your own
Fill your head all full of lies
You bastards!

Where can you run to
What more can you do
No more tomorrow
Life is killing you
Dreams turn to nightmares
Heaven turns to hell
Burned out confusion
Nothing more to tell, yeah

Everything around you
What's it coming to
God knows as your dog knows
Bog blast all of you
Sabbath bloody Sabbath
Nothing more to do
Living just for dying
Dying just for you, yeah

    General CommentThe song was written in response to the widely understood miscarriage of justice following the Bloody Sunday Massacre. Geezer Butler is of Irish descent and understood the intensity of discrimination being played out before him . "War Pigs" identifies the band as anti- militaristic and this song evokes the horror of military force turned against our own people. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… . Specifically, the truth is the death of innocents , the distorted eyes are the media , "But you don't want to know" nails the apathy of those who side-lined open warfare euphemistically as someone else's "Troubles". The lies took nearly forty years to be addressed when Cameron finally apologised on behalf of the British Government . Sabbath spoke up against the lies from the start and should take credit for their principles. They were well informed but railroaded by Warner Brothers, I believe, into playing their stance down on political grounds. Incidentally the otherwise incongruous term "Bog Blast" is the voice of the People of Derry who suffered . The area the atrocity occurred in is in fact known locally as the Bogside.
