Black Sabbath – Electric Funeral lyrics

Reflex in the sky
Warn you you're gonna die
Storm coming, you better hide
From the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky
Turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay
Radiation minds decay

Robot minds of robot slaves
Lead men to atomic graves
Plastic flowers melt in sun
Fading moon falls upon
Dying world of radiation
Victims of mad frustration
Burning glow of obscene fire
Like electric funeral pyre

Buildings crashing down
To Earth's cracking ground
Rivers turn to wood
Eyes melt into blood

Earth lies in death bed
Clouds cry for the dead
Terrifying rain
Ease the burning pain

Electric Funeral
Electric Funeral
Electric Funeral
Electric Funeral

And so in the sky
Shines the electric eye
Supernatural king
Takes Earth under his wing
Heaven's golden chorus sings
Hell's angels flap their wings
Evil souls fall to Hell
Ever trapped in burning cells!

    This song is basically about the nuclear apocalypse. "Terrifying rain, ease the burning pain" basically describes the nuclear radiation and how painful it is. The first 'section' or 'verse' is basically about people watching nuclear bombs falling. "Storm coming, you better hide" is basically people running to hide from the nuclear (of course its not going to work). Towards the end of the song it describes the earth destroyed ("Earth lies in death bed") and everyone dead. Along with all of that there is people going to hell as well, MANY people. "Evil souls fall to Hell, ever trapped in burning cells!". If you notice it says 'evil souls' fall to hell, these 'evil' people could be the people who started the nuclear war.
