Black Sabbath – Lord Of This World lyrics

You're searching for your mind don't know where to start
Can't find the key to fit the lock on your heart
You think you know but you are never quite sure
Your soul is I'll but you will not find a cure

Your world was made for you by someone above
But you chose evil ways instead of love
You made me master of the world where you exist
The soul I took from you was not even missed

Lord of this world
Evil possessor
Lord of this world
He's your confessor now!

You think you're innocent you've nothing to fear
You don't know me, you said, but isn't it clear?
You turn to me in all your wordly greed and pride
But will you turn to me when it's your turn to die?

    Or, you are seeking spiritual/religious enlightenment but don't know where to start because your body is ruled by your heart - the physical world - and you don't know how to unlock it despite following the teachings of Catholicism to release your soul, which wants to be free but is suffering from captivity in a tomb of flesh. You believe that the physical world must be good because God created it but free will has resulted in you committing sin and unknowingly handing your soul over to Satan. You pray but Satan, not God, hears/answers you. You're not afraid to die because you believe (mistakenly) your soul will go to heaven but only when you die will you realize that your soul will continue to be reincarnated in this world so you suffer hell cycles of birth/death/reincarnation over and over again.
