Black Sabbath – Wheels Of Confusion lyrics

Long ago I wandered through my mind, in the land of fairy tales and stories. Lost in happiness I had no fears, innocence and love was all I knew.
Was it illusion?
Soon the days were passing into years, happiness just didn't come so easy. Life was more than fairy tales and daydreams. Innocence was just another word.
Was it illusion?

Lost in the wheels of confusion, running through valleys of tears.
Eyes full of angry delusion, hiding in everyday fears.

So I found that life is just a game. But you know there's never been a winner. Try your hardest, you'll still be a loser. The world will still be turning when you've gone... Yeah, when you've gone.
