Black Sabbath – Ear In The Wall lyrics

Hello, can you hear me? I might not be alone
Don't see anyone near me but I just won't go home again
Let's meet in the morning, I just can't speak tonight
This is more than a warning, be silent 'till it's light

And then you know I'll be there, waiting for someone to believe me
Remembering it all makes my flesh start to crawl
I've seen an ear in the wall

This time, it could prove it but you've heard this all before
Cry wolf and you're moving to a special kind of danger zone
I need a witness, somebody just like you
So bring an exorcist, a wizard and the holy ghost

You know I'll be there, waiting for someone to believe me
Remembering it all makes my flesh creep and crawl
I've seen an ear in the wall

One more reason, one more time
Someone's searching through my mind
Now where am I supposed to go
It's not who you are, it's who you know
What's it gonna be?

I knew you would answer, I'm the curiosity
You could miss a chance because the fool might see reality
There it is, in the corner, you must be going blind
What's wrong? Were you born before your God invented eyes?

It's got to be there, grinding away at my secrets
It's growing so dark and you can't see it all
I'll turn on some lights so you're sure not to fall
It's next to the eye in the wall
