Paranoid
Black Sabbath Lyrics


Finished with my woman 'cause
She couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane because
I am frowning all the time

All day long I think of things
But nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind
If I don't find something to pacify
Can you help me
Occupy my brain?
Oh yeah

I need someone to show me
The things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make
True happiness, I must be blind

Make a joke and I will sigh
And you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel
And love to me is so unreal

And so as you hear these words
Telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life
I wish I could but it's too late

U never stop listening too sabbath, i call bs

Tyler

@EnderKnightGames Ah fair. War Pigs for sure. Don't see as much of that influence in Paranoid. But I feel you regardless. I prefer Bad Moon Rising to Fortunate Son. But neither stand up to War Pigs as an anti-war song at least.

EnderKnightGames

@Tyler Creedence has some good music

EnderKnightGames

@Tyler yeah the joke is that they both fit the Vietnam War and like this is an alternative
