Killing Yourself to Live
Black Sabbath Lyrics


Well people look and people stare
Well I don't think that I even care
You work your life away and what do they give?
You're only killing yourself to live

Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live

Just take a look around you what do you see
Pain, suffering, and misery
It's not the way that the world was meant
It's a pity you don't understand

Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live

I'm telling you
Believe in me
Nobody else will tell you
Open your eyes
And see the lies, oh yeah

Smoke it, get high
You think I'm crazy and baby I know that it's true
Before that you know it I think
That you'll go crazy too

I don't know if I'm up or down
Whether black is white or blue is brown
The colors of my life are all different somehow
Little boy blue's a big girl now

So you think it's me who's strange
But you've never had to make the change
Never give your trust away
You'll end up paying till your dying day

Verse 1]
Well, people look and people stare
Well, I don’t think that I even care
You work your life away and what do they give?
You're only killing yourself to live

[Chorus]
Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live

[Verse 2]
Just take a look around you, what do you see?
Pain, suffering, and misery
It's not the way that the world was meant
It's a pity, you don't understand

[Chorus]
Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge]
I'm telling you, believe in me, nobody else will tell you
Open your eyes and see the lies, oh yeah
(Smoke it, get high)
You think that I'm crazy and, baby, I know that it's true
Before that you know it I think that you'll go crazy too

[Guitar Solo]

[Outro]
I don't know if I'm up or down
Whether black is white or blue is brown
The colors of my life are all different somehow
Little boy blue's a big girl now
So you think it's me who's strange
But you've never had to make the change
Never give your trust away
You'll end up paying till your dying day

All bands need to study Sabbath to see how it’s done. Too many bands just hammer away on one type or style of song over and over. The thing about Sabbath is their smarts, variety. Never boring, always fresh. Good on ya, mates
