Mods please move to relevant area if needed.

Ive been thinking about stuff lately, mainly the way the world is and how we constantly seem to be at war with each other and constantly living on the edge of international nuclear war (say what you want but its a real possibility at any time...!!)

And whilst pondering these issues i happened to be listening to one of my favourite bands when this song came on which pretty much sums up how i feel... and i thought id share it with you


"Children Of The Grave"

Revolution in their minds - the children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
and all the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around
and told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
and love comes flowing through

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

So you children of the world,
listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in
spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive
you must be brave
Or you children of today are
Children of the Grave, Yeah!

Peace and Love

The very fact that this song was written in like '68-ish should let you know that the hyperbole and fear-mongering has been going on a long time and we, as a species, are still here!

But, I do agree, Sabbath rocks.

yeh i can agree with that, but it seems to just sum up everything i feel atm regardless of stories and fear mongering. I find it funny that its just as apt now as it was when it was written.

Be sure to listen to Embryo.

It's the preceding track on the album. They mesh into eachother.

Listen to Embryo then CotG.

Good stuff.

It puts me off that this song is just a hippie song though.
