2013. Οι Sabbath ηχογραφούν το πρώτο άλμπουμ με τον Ozzy πίσω απ’ το μικρόφωνο, 35 χρόνια από το Never Say Die [1978]. Ακούμε ένα τραγούδι με θέμα το child abuse, όλο και πιο συχνά απαντώμενο απ’ τα ’90s και εντεύθεν.
Το τραγούδι καταλήγει με το εναρκτήριο section [βροχή, βροντές, ο ήχος της καμπάνας] του ιστορικού “Black Sabbath” απ το άλμπουμ-ντεμπούτο τους [1970].
Η κίνηση είναι συμβολική: “don’t blame me. Για όλα όσα ακολούθησαν …φταίει ο πατέρας”.

2013. Sabbath record the first album with Ozzy behind the microphone, 35 years since Never Say Die [1978].
We hear a song about child abuse, more and more often circulated from the ’90s on.
The song concludes with the opening section [rain, thunder, the sound of the bell] of the historical “Black Sabbath” from their debut album [1970].
It is a symbolic move: “don’t blame me. Everything that followed … is father’s fault”


❝ A childhood innocence was drowned in your tears
The demons that you fought are feeding your fears
The poisoned secrets of your life stand revealed
The truth destroys you, its no longer concealed
Dear father forsaken, you knew what you were doing
In silence your violence has left my life in ruin
Yeah, in ruin, yeah
You preyed upon my flesh then prayed for my soul
Belief betrayed by lust, the faith that you stole
Indoctrination by a twisted desire
The catechism of an evil messiah
Dear father forgive me, I know just what I’m doing
In silence this violence will leave your life in ruin
Yeah, in ruin, yeah
Preacher of theocracy hiding your hypocrisy
Under false sanctity, holy phoney empathy
You have taken my life
Now it’s your turn to die
Can you sleep at night? when you close your eyes
Do you think of all the pain from your lies?
Or do you deny you’re responsible
For the victims of the sins you devised?
What you gonna tell them when they ask you? well then
Is your conscience pure in your heart?
There is no exemption when you seek redemption
For all the lives that you’ve torn apart
Your molestations of the cross you defiled
A man once holy now despised and reviled
You took possession while confessing my sins
And now you have to face whatever death brings, yeah
Dear father forsaken, you knew what you were doing
In silence your violence has left my life in ruin, yeah
In ruin, yeah, yeah, yeah
In ruin yeah ❞
