Sabbath Bloody Sabbath Lyrics

Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath lyrics

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...

    In 1983, A Hexagon snaowflake, was found and protected in Switzerland. It was the man, woman or child who either could or could not pee. If you cannot urinate, you turn to fire, this is not easy on the person with a bed wetting problem or who has pooped out 400,000 trees. The sympathy of this child sympathizes with these musicians, they are black, but can only tell this child only lies. A Better resolve, woould be to look a true blue, or Cobalt Hexagon, and not to the snowflake, which has no conscience, no mind, and though, it does have a sabbath every day it can make sure that black and white men are dead, dead, dead. Cold fire is luciferin, but this indeed , does die before it comes back, this holocaust to the bed wetter, and his family should be avoided, the truth should be established to be just that.

    Revenge is what i always thought of when hearing this.
    " The people who have crippled you, you want to see them burn.The gates of life have closed on you and theres just no return"
    I dont see god or jesus there. I'll just keep this as my revenge song. Thank you

    About death and dying when one is being sacrificed for His and Their religious beliefs of God. 'To Kill A Mocking Bird' reminds me of the one who was mocked and sacrificed as a Christ The King. In God who so loved us. In this world which became infected with embedded sins and untruthful lies. So, God out of love and sympathy for the human race had His Right Hand cut off[symbolically speaking] to reveal to us ''The Invisible Him'' on this Earth that regrew Himself into the son birth of baby Jesus, who was born on Earth as the incarnation of Himself[God] as a given hand for us to actually see Him and believe that HE'S REAL. Who came to fulfill the holy scriptures of old and die as a sacrifice for our sins. As and on the Sabbath. Who by then became all grown up in the spirit hand of God, raised as the Ressurection of Christ to be again on The Right Hand Of The Father in Heaven. Who was, is and always will be the one true god who will reveal to you the truth. Now as a believer i'am not trying to be funny or wise in anyway by my interpretation of this song that may be misunderstood that God was or is a Giant Lizard Snake of somekind that some people believed or still believes. In their god who can regrow their limbs and tails after having any of them ripped or cut off,of them for whatever reason. But if God can do somekind of thing like that for His earthly creatures. God is the only one who's truly free in power and truth to do anything He wants with us little gods that try to manipulate His creation the wrong way.

    ''Black Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath'' one of the best albums, when Ozzie Osbourne and the band on the personal level must have felt in relation to the sacrifice Jesus Christ made on the cross for our sins by his blood to give strenght in comforthing them through the difficult times they were having with the managers,promoters,lawyers etc, in feeling they were being used and manipulated in the music buisness to be like a sacrifice for the Sabbath, which Ozzie did not agree with them during this period to sacrifice themselfes that way to sell out, 'cause Ozzie knew according to the Bible the Sabbath was made for man and not man for Sabbath.

    i think it is a reference to Jesus death on the cross, "Living just for dying" jesus came for one reason, to do His work on the Cross.........."dying just for you" this one is kind of obvious

    I think this song could be about a mass suicide hence the lyrics "living just for dying,dying just for you".
