  • Look through the people, and on through the mist
    To the hill of the headless cross
    Where all witches meet, on a night such as this
    And the power of darkness is host
    They come face to face, eye to eye, soul to soul
    With and Angel that fell from the sky
    Borne on the air, the screams and the wails
    Of the masses appointed to die

    Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
    Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture
    At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross

    From the first evil night, when a black flash of light
    Cut the crucifix half to the ground
    There's been no escape from the power of Satan
    On a nation so brave and so proud

    Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
    Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture
    At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross

    How do you feel, when the locks refuse the key
    And the master is calling your name
    Does the luck of the charm, really keep you from harm?
    Does the talisman protect you from pain?

    Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
    Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture
    At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross

    From the first evil night, when a black flash of light
    Cut the crucifix half to the ground
    There's no escaping the power of Satan
    On a nation so brave and so proud

    Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
    Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture, oh no, oh
    At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross
    At the Headless Cross, oh, at the Headless Cross
    Where will you run to?
    At the Headless Cross
    Look, to the Headless Cross Writer/s: ANTHONY PHILIP HARFORD, COZY POWELL, TONY IOMMI

  • Tony from Bewdley, United KingdomInteresting fact: If you were to drive to where Tony lives, on the outskirts of Birmingham, via Bromsgrove, Redditch, Henley-in-Arden you pass a road sign indicating an area called Headless Cross. He must have passed that a thousand times and thought "Ah ha, that's a good title for an album!"
  • Jorge from Bronx, NyThis voice sounds very familiar,was he in another band in the 80's? Also heard before Black Sabbath,producers/manager were seeking a vocalist and Micheal Bolotin was brought up,Imagine having Micheal Bolton singing in Black Sabbath,what a disaster that would have been,lol
  • Lester from New York City, NyBlack Sabbath's best album that has Tony Martin as their lead singer. 'Nightwing' is an excellent song.
