Heaven and Hell

My school mates and I used to jam to this rusty old tune back in the day. In my 43rd year this song makes more sense than ever.

Heaven and Hell- Black Sabbath

Sing me a song, youre a singer
Do me no wrong, youre a bringer of evil
The devil is never a maker
The less that you give, youre a taker
So its on and on and on, its heaven and hell

The lover of life's not a sinner
The ending is just a beginning
The closer you get to the meaning
The sooner you'll know that youre dreaming
So its on and on and on, oh its on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, heaven and hell
I can tell, fool, fool!

Well if it seems to be real, its illusion
For every moment of truth, theres confusion and lies
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
And its on and on, on and on and on....

They say that life's a carousel
Spinning fast, youve got to ride it well
The world is full of kings and queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
Its heaven and hell
And they'll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls
Its heaven and hell, oh no!
Fool, fool!
Youve got to bleed for the dancer!
Fool, fool!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!
I'll look for a vid or audio file to post here with the lyrics later.
