Hole in the Sky

Written by Butler/Iommi/Osbourne/Ward
I'm looking through a hole in the sky
I'm seeing nowhere through the eyes of a lie
I'm getting closer to the end of the line
I'm living easy where the sun doesn't shine

I'm living in a room without any view
I'm living free because the rent's never due
The synonym of all the things that I've said
Are just the riddles that are built in my head

        Hole in the sky
        Gateway to heaven
        Window in time
        Through it I'll fly

I've seen the stars that disappear in the sun
But shooting's easy if you've got the right gun
And even though I'm sitting waiting for Mars
I don't believe there's any future in cars

        Hole in the sky
        Gateway to heaven
        Window in time
        Through it I'll fly

I've watched the dogs of war enjoying their feast
I've seen the western world go down in the east
The food of love becomes the greed of our time
And now we're living on the profits of crime
