Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify
Can you help me occupy my brain?
Oh yeah
I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind
Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late

    Paranoid, was actually an accident. At the time, the band was working on their seccond album which was supposed to be called "War Pigs", but it was made aware to the band that they needed a up beat, three minute song so they could play it on the radio, as opposed to the more "album based" songs like, "Iron Man", "Fairies Wear Boots", or "War Pigs". This one was actually written by guitarist Tony Iommi, instead of normal lyricist, and bassist Geezer Butler.
    Paranoid became the album's single, and would be the one that would be played predominately. Since this was the single, the record executives decided that it would be easier to sell the album if it had the same name as its single. So, at the last minute, plans, and titles were changed. Unfortunately, the album cover did not. They were stuck with a strange looking man holding a sword (which would have worked had the single been War Pigs)

    I write shit on the wall
    But it doesn't make any sense
    God's gonna kill you all
    If you are, no he isn't
    Pop another Rispidol
    Or maybe I should take four

    When I look at you , you look down
    Look crazy, tell me who are you?
    I get this shit 'cause when I hear a sound
