  1. 1.War Pigs

    Generals gathered in their masses
    Just like witches at black masses
    Evil minds that plot destruction
    Sorcerers of death's construction

    In the fields the bodies burning
    As the war machine keeps turning
    Death and hatred to mankind
    Poisoning their brainwashed minds,
    Oh, Lord yeah!

    Politicians hide themselves away
    They only started the war
    Why should they go out to fight?
    They leave that role to the poor

    Time will tell them they are powered minds
    Making war just for fun
    Treating people just like pawns in chess
    Wait 'til their Judgement Day comes,

    Now in darkness, world stops turning
    Ashes where their bodies burning
    No more war pigs have the power
    Hand of God has struck the hour

    Day of Judgement, God is calling
    On their knees the war pigs crawling
    Begging mercy for their sins
    Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
    Oh, Lord yeah!

    2. Paranoid

    Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
    People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time
    All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
    Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify
    Can you help me, occupy my brain?
    Oh yeah
    I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find
    I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind
    Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
    Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal
    And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
    I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late

    3. Planet Caravan

    We sail through endless skies
    Stars shine like eyes
    The black night sighs
    The moon in silver trees
    Falls down in tears
    Light of the night
    The earth, a purple blaze
    Of sapphire haze
    In orbit always
    While down below the trees
    Bathed in cool breeze
    Silver starlight breaks dark from night
    And so we pass on by the crimson eye
    Of great god Mars
    As we travel the universe

    4. Iron Man

    Has he lost his mind?
    Can he see or is he blind?
    Can he walk at all,
    Or if he moves will he fall?
    Is he alive or dead?
    Has he thoughts within his head?
    We'll just pass him there
    Why should we even care?
    He was turned to steel
    In the great magnetic field
    Where he traveled time
    For the future of mankind
    Nobody wants him
    He just stares at the world
    Planning his vengeance
    That he will soon unfold
    Now the time is here
    For Iron Man to spread fear
    Vengeance from the grave
    Kills the people he once saved
    Nobody wants him
    They just turn their heads
    Nobody helps him
    Now he has his revenge
    Heavy boots of lead
    Fills his victims full of dread
    Running as fast as they can
    Iron Man lives again!

    5. Electric Funeral

    Three flecks in the sky warn you you're gonna die
    Storm coming, you'd better hide from the atomic tide
    Flashes in the sky turns houses into sties
    Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay
    Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic rage
    Plastic flowers, melting sun, fading moon falls upon
    Dying world of radiation, victims of man's frustration
    Burning globe of obscence fire, like electric funeral pyre
    Buildings crashing down to a cracking ground
    Rivers turn to wood, ice melts into blood
    Earth lies in death bed, clouds cry for the dead
    Tearing life away, here's the burning pay
    Electric Funeral
    Electric Funeral
    Electric Funeral
    Electric Funeral
    And so in the sky shines the electric eye
    Supernatural king takes earth under his wing
    Heaven's golden chorus sings, Hell's angels flap their wings
    Evil souls fall to Hell, ever trapped in burning cells!

    6. Hand Of Doom

    What you gonna do? Time's caught up with you
    Now you wait your turn, you know there's no return
    Take your written rules, you join the other fools
    Turn to something new, now it's killing you

    First it was the bomb, Vietnam napalm
    Disillusioning, you push the needle in
    From life you escape, reality's that way
    Colours in your mind, satisfy in time

    Oh you, you know you must be blind
    To do something like this
    To take the sleep that you don't know
    You're giving Death a kiss,
    Poor little fool now

    Your mind is full of pleasure
    Your body's looking ill
    To you it's shallow leisure
    So drop the acid pill, don't stop to think now

    You're having a good time baby
    But that won't last
    Your mind's all full of things
    You're living too fast
    Go out enjoy yourself
    Don't bottle it in
    You need someone to help you
    To stick the needle in, yeah


    Now you know the scene, your skin starts turning green
    Your eyes no longer seeing life's reality
    Push the needle in, face death's sickly grin
    Holes are in your skin, caused by deadly pin

    Head starts spinning 'round, you fall down to the ground
    Feel your body heave, Death's hands starts to weave
    It's too late to turn, you won't want to learn
    Price of life too high, now you're gonna die!

    8. Fairies Wear Boots / Jack The Stripper

    Goin' home, late last night
    Suddenly I got a fright
    Yeah I looked through the window and surprised what I saw
    A fairy with boots on dancin' with a dwarf, all right now!
    Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
    Yeah I saw it, I saw it, I tell you no lies
    Yeah Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
    I saw it, I saw it with my own two eyes, well all right now!
    So I went to the doctor, see what he could give me
    He said "Son, son, you've gone too far.
    'Cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do."

  8. iconic album front to back….anybody that ever had a predetermined mindset of what was black sabbath only need to listen to this for a few minutes and have their entire world blown upside down.

  9. 9:57 that verse gets me every time

  10. I am not a heavy metal guy, but "War Pigs" is simply excellent musicianship, regardless of genre of music one characterizes it as. Excellent guitar interplay, base, drums, nothing overpowering, everything complementing each other. An awesome anti-war rock Anthem of sorts.

  11. am i the only one who dont give a ** about spotify and can afford a memory card?

  24. Friedtre aavytruop kidty gluk zabisk totuy

  25. The 2k dislikes are most likely hip hop fans who probably don’t even know what an instrument is

  26. Oh ja… damals wurde die Musik noch mit der Hand gemacht.
    Ein Meisterwerk.

  27. the puck-head Ozzie is beginning to experience the last months of pain to death? and no artistic expression is forthcoming? With after a kiss on the forehead of my beloved Ozzie, CREATE! will you god damn please give us your fans the thoughts in your beloved mind your final thoughts?

    T'ank you very much. Ozzie was my second album purchased, Paranoid; Alice Cooper's Killer album was the first album I bought, and I know you Rock guys are literally divine; the Creator hangs out with you guys, absolutely.

    Ozzie, give us your last thoughts in tune with Rock? #weLoveYou

  28. Came here to listen to this masterpiece. Spotify removed it for some reason.


  30. Who the hell would give this album a thumbs down, There shouldn't even be an option. Even if you had an hard on for Barry manilow you still would have to respect this masterpiece.

  31. So at 1:45 have captions on…

  32. I saw Ozzy at…I think it was Joe Louis Arena. Could been Cobo Hall. I also can't remember what year…needless to say I was pretty toasted. I was impressed that Ozzy had the range he did live. Studio quality always outdoes live but he literally sounded the same. It was a bad assed concert. I was so close to the stage he could have spit on my head! It was amazing! It was when he had Zack Wilde on guitar. I've never hear any rumors that Ozzy ever had vocal tracks playing the background or anything and I doubt he did then. I've seen footage of him singing live close ups and unless they were manipulated to sync, he was actually singing. It's too bad is kind of a drooling waste now….Drugs will screw you up. The more resources you have the worst you'll get.

  33. The solo that plays through my left ear in "Rat Salad" is very reminiscent of the solo in "No Quarter" by Zeppelin

  34. you are my hero! well done

  35. When I was young, 14 – 15 years old and lived in poor Poland, this album was my biggest dream… you cannot even imagine how happy I was when finally I bought it..

  36. imagine shooting yourself with a banana

  37. It's another great group of all time I am so happy that I Wentz the best band of times of rock they were the days

  38. When this came out I was in HS
    I remember when it first came out
    Thank God it wasn't gay

  39. μόνο επί χούντας τέτοια άλμπουμ
