Black Sabbath - Born Again


go back!

Zero The Hero

(Butler, Gillan, Iommi, Ward)

Accept the fact that you're second rate
Life is easy for you
It's all served up on a gold plated plate
And we don't even have to talk to you
Your face is normal that's the way you're bred
And that's the way you're going to stay
Your head is firmly nailed to your tv channel
But someone else's fingers on the control panel

What you gonna be brother
Zero the Hero
Don't you wanna be brother
Zero the Hero
Impossibility impissibolity mother really a hero

You sit there watch it all burn down
It's easy and breezy for you
You play your life to a different sound
No edge no edge you got no knife have you
Your life is a six lane highway to no-where
You're going so fast you're never ever
Gonna get down there
Where the heroes sit by the river
With the magic in their music as they eat raw liver

You stand there captain we all look
You really are mediocre
You are the champion of the Acme form book
But I think you're just a joker
Your face down life ain't so much of a pity
But the luv- a duckin' way you're walkin' around
The city with your balls and your head full of nothing
It's easy for you sucker but you really need stuffing
