Black Sabbath – Cardinal Sin lyrics
Where do you go when your conscience takes over?
Do you crawl to your corner and cry?
Did you imagine, that no one would notice?
Just a secret to take when you die

All the world is watching you, every tongue is screaming fool

How are your dreams, do they claw at your sleep?
Making darkness a place you despise,
Where is the God, that once was your strength?
Are you sure he was there from the start?

All the world is watching you, nowhere you can hide,
Every tongue is screaming fool, only Satan hears your cries

When you sin Cardinal Sin, you make your bed and on it you must lie,
And your futures looking grim, but did you ever give a damn
About the child? He's Running Wild
When you sin Cardinal Sin, don't expect the world will treat you well,
We say oh, go to Hell

We point the finger, sin Cardinal Sin, laugh in your face, sin Cardinal Sin,
We point the finger, laugh in your face,
Cause you're no better than the rest of the human race

Oh sin Cardinal Sin, oh sin Cardinal Sin
