Computer God
Black Sabbath Lyrics


Waiting for the revolution
New clear vision, genocide
Computerize God, it's the new religion
Program the brain, not the heartbeat

Onward all you crystal soldiers
Touch tomorrow, energize
Digital dreams
And you're the next correction
Man's a mistake so we'll fix it, yeah

Take a look at your own reflection
Right before your eyes
It turns to steel

[Chorus:]
There's another side of heaven
This way, to technical paradise
Find it on the other side
When the walls fall down

Love is automatic pleasure
Virtual reality
Terminal hate, it's a calculation
Send in the child for connection

Take a look at the toys around you
Right before your eyes
The toys are real

[Chorus]

Midnight confessions
Never heal the soul
What you believe is fantasy

Your past is your future
Left behind
Lost in time
Will you surrender

Waiting for the revolution
Program the brain
Not the heartbeat

Deliver us to evil
Deny us of our faith
Robotic hearts bleed poison
On the world we populate

Virtual existence
With a superhuman mind
The ultimate creation
Destroyer of mankind

Termination of our youth
For we do not compute
No!

For the lazy ones:

Waiting for the revolution
Nuclear vision genocide
Computerize God, it's the new religion
Program the brain not the heartbeat

Onward all you crystal soldiers
Touch tomorrow energize
Digital dreams and you're the next correction
Man's a mistake so we'll fix it, yeah

Take a look at your own reflection
Right before your eyes
It turns to steel

There's another side of heaven
This way to technical paradise
Find it on the other side
When the walls fall down

Love is automatic pleasure
Virtual reality
Terminal hate it's a calculation
Send in the child for connection

Take a look at the toys around you
Right before your eyes
The toys are real

There's another side of heaven
This way to technical paradise
Find it on the other side
When the walls fall down

Midnight confessions
Never heal the soul
What you believe is fantasy
Your past is your future
Left behind, lost in time
Will you surrender

Waiting for the revolution
Program the brain not the heartbeat

Deliver us to evil
Deny us of our faith
Robotic hearts bleed poison
On the world we populate
Virtual existence
With a superhuman mind
The ultimate creation
Destroyer of mankind
Termination of our youth
For we do not compute, noooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...

I'm so glad I got to see Dio in concert before he died. I'm from Michigan but drove over to London, Ontario Canada to see them in 2007 when he was back together with Black Sabbath (aka: "Heaven & Hell") for the 3rd and final time.
Down & Megadeth were the two opening bands. Down sucked but Megadeth sounded really fantastic. I've never been a big Megadeth fan but they sounded great and never seemed to miss a note.
The one negative thing about the whole concert was that it was in a huge hockey arena (the John Labatt Centre). My seat was on the complete opposite end of the building from the stage, on the floor, about half-way between me and the stage- were practically an army of sound, light, and whatever else technicians with all of their equipment (which was very distracting when trying to watch the band on the other end of the building from all of them, while they were all walking all over doing their thing). Also the sound was not as good or loud as it would have been in a smaller place. And the view was horrible, being so far away from the stage.


I saw Black Sabbath only one other time in my life. In 1994 on the Cross Purposes tour with the: Iommi, Butler, Tony Martin (vocals), Bobby Rodinelli (drums), and Geoff Nichols (keyboards) line-up.
That time they were at the State Theater in Detroit, MI. A VERY small concert hall. The opening bands then were: Morbid Angel (which I missed because there was a huge snowstorm that day since this concert was in February) And the 2nd band: Motorhead. This was by far the loudest concert I've ever been to in my entire life. I could barely hear for three days afterward. The stage set was very bare-bones in comparison to when I saw them in 2007 when Dio was back with them. About the most elaborate thing onstage at the 1994 concert was a banner hung above the stage with the Black Sabbath name on it, and the Cross Purposes album cover image of the angel with its wings on fire. Also out where all of us in the audience were standing (since there were only a few rows of seats toward the back at this concert) was a tall kind of knights suit of armor that was holding a long battle axe.


But even with the poorer sound and view at the 2007 concert I'm still glad I went to see them. I somehow missed seeing them on the 1992 Dehumanizer tour. I actually didn't even know they had been back together again at that time or had that album out until they were already split back up again- and Dio had his Angry Machines album out with his own "DI0" band.


So when I heard that Iommi and Dio had gotten back together for a 3rd time I told myself there was no way I was going to miss seeing them this time. And the way that Iommi and Dio had in the past gotten back together only briefly, just to split up again soon afterward; I knew this could very well be my final chance to see them in concert together. I never would have forgiven myself if I had missed going to see them this time around.


But I do wish that bands would (when playing in larger arenas) use more on-stage amplifiers so the sound quality would be better in the larger buildings. Because just from what I've seen by looking carefully of videos of Black Sabbaths concerts from back when I saw them the first time in 1994 compared to their more recent concerts in larger venues-like when I saw them in 2007 and beyond. They pretty much seem to use the same number of onstage Amps (for the most part) no matter what size of place they play in.
So even though the Iommi, Butler, Dio, Appice line-up of Black Sabbath is, by far my favorite line-up of the band. I prefer the bare-bones, no elaborate stage-set, but great view and louder than hell concert I saw them at in 1994. And because of that fact, that concert was my all time favorite concert.

I have fallen in love with Dio era sabbath. Its so deep, timeless, unforgetable. They dont make music like this anymore. Epic music words and rythum.

Jorggen Brekke

Rhythm.

@Rusty Kuntz Black Sabbath started with Ozzy and it was amazing! Dio was fucking amazing as well but calling it Black Sabbath is weird, it's such a different but awesome band. When he came back before he died, they called themselves Heaven and Hell and that made more sense to me.

Ian Williams

Whenever anyone has a discussion on who the best rock singer ever is, I always say do you not mean who is second to RJD

svoboda simon
