After All
Black Sabbath Lyrics


What do you say to the dead?
Will you forgive me for living?
Can't believe the things that they said
Wonderful day for a killing
It's killing me!

What do they do with your soul?
Is it just lying there busted?
When did you lose all control?
Is there someone to be trusted with my mind?

Oh there's insufficient evidence
Of what just might come after
But sometimes out of nowhere
There's demented sounds of laughter

Are we all haunted by the ghost - imagination?
It just can't be, I've seen them there howling at the moon
Is it just me or does somebody else, believe this
Well I'm not alone and I'm not afraid
There's just one way to see after all
After all
After all
After all

What do you say to the dead?
Is there a place where it's burning?
It says in a book I once read
Yes, there's a chance of returning
Turn to me

The fundamental principles
Say nothing of forever
But those are voices that I hear
Or I'm just not so clever

It can't be me I know somebody else, believes this
Well I'm not alone, I'm not afraid
Just one way to see after all
After all
Coming after all
After all
After all

So haunting... Black Sabbath truly were metal masters, no matter who sang their songs.

Rob Mulry

Best Song on the Album!!!

Sammy Beck

Letters from Earth is also a badass song

Gothik Extravaganza

I disagree... albeit, only slightly.

Sammy Beck

This album was so different. All the music was more of a doom Black Sabbath Groove. Ronnie James Dio wasn't singing about rainbows and the future. We all know Dios sound and it wasn't in this album. How awesome is that. That Black Sabbath Tony Iommi sound with Ronnie on vocals. Can't get better than that

Sabbath inventó todo, heavy metal, doom metal, stoner metal, fulanito metal... etc etc... Tony you are God !!

Crossair
