After Forever

Album: Master Of Reality (1971)
  • Have you ever thought about your soul can it be saved?
    Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave
    Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you?
    Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?

    When you think about death do you lose your breath or do you keep your cool?
    Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope do you think he's a fool?
    Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light and I've changed my ways
    And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared at the end of our days

    Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say
    If they knew you believe in God above?
    They should realize before they criticize
    That God is the only way to love

    Is your mind so small that you have to fall
    In with the pack wherever they run
    Will you still sneer when death is near
    And say they may as well worship the sun?

    I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ
    I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
    Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe?
    You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve

    Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone
    Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one
    The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate
    Or will you still jeer at all you hear, yes I think it's too late Writer/s: FRANK IOMMI, JOHN OSBOURNE, TERENCE BUTLER, W.T. WARD
