Black Sabbath - After All (The Dead) 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 [etc.]

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 [etc.]

  14. 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

  15. evan_bilo

    Diabolus en Musica. Tony invented it in Metal rock.

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

    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…
