Johnny Blade
Black Sabbath Lyrics


Tortured and twisted, he walks the streets alone
People avoid him, they know the street's his own
Cold blade of silver, his eyes they burn so wild
Mean as a tiger, society's own child

Those who try to burn him pay
You don't do that to Johnny Blade
He's the meanest guy around his town
One look and he will cut you down
Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade

Life has no meaning, and Death's his only friend
Will fate surprise him, where will he meet his end?
He feels so bitter, yes he's so full of hate
To die in the gutter, I guess that's Johnny's fate

Rivals all across the land
He kills them with his knife in hand
He's the meanest guy around his town
One look and he will cut you down
Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade
Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade

Well you know that Johnny's a spider
And his web is the city at night
He's a victim of modern frustration
That's the reason he's so ready to fight

He's the one that should be afraid
What will happen to you, Johnny Blade?

Oh he knows his future's decided
And he ain't gonna change it, no way
He was born to die in the gutter
He'll keep fighting 'till the end of his days

Been alone all through his life
His only friend is a switchblade knife
He's the one who should be afraid
What will happen to you, Johnny Blade?

You fool the people
Who's fooling who?
It's time to listen
Who's fool are you?

@Hellraiser Gordon Fuck Off hellraiser, ...Thats why he got fired 1.5 years later, for fucking up the orginal tapes of their master copies.
Dios an asshole

NO OZZY, NO SABBATH it's that simple.

Btw, Lynyrd Skynyrd blew the Rolling Stones off Stage, they did the same thing to the Who at the cow place in Cali in the late 70s.
Those two bands didn't die....
And Van Halen can't hold a fucking candle to Lynyrd Skynyrd.

So your point..?
Twat.

Ett band får aldrig stanna upp i sin utveckling. Det är det som särskiljer riktiga artister från andra.
Black Sabbath utvecklades med varje album. Jag hyllar dem för det.
Mitt fav album med BS är Technical Ecstasy förresten. 😉

Roger That

But lately he said he reassessed it and thinks it’s better than he first thought. I love it. Saw them on that tour with Van Halen.

William Walker

Not in your opinion. In the annals of 70s heavy metal!

Criminally under-rated album

@ManicMan Born Again, and Eternal Idol were great albums.

Admiral General Aladeen
