The Illusion Of Power – Black Sabbath

This thing that grabs you by the heart and makes you wanna tear things down.
There is no reason why I should need all this power
But if you cross me now, I’m gonna tear your whole world down

Illusion of power
Things that I feel seem so real
Illusion of power

I can’t get the emotional things straight in my head
Everything I love dies too soon or is already dead
Don’t stand too close I spit and breathe fire
Anything I’ve got now you can not desire
You wanna be my friend I promise you nothing
Nothing I can give you, nothing I can do for you
I’m being chased by the sins of my past and it’s killing me now,
Killing me now

Illusion of power
Things that I feel seem so real
Illusion of power
Illusion of power, it’s already set, signed, and sealed
Illusion of power

Powerful! Who are you foolin?
You’re caught in a complex catacomb of your own inadequacies
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)
and pitiful weaknesses.
Your soul secretes insecurity (ha ha ha ha)
so you live on the reflection side of the mirror;
you’re terrified of true power.
YOU FEAR ME!

I can tell you stories of my
Shaded past and I can
Drag you down into the
Depths of my soul

Illusion of power
Things that I feel seem so real
