Black Sabbath – Over To You lyrics

Born in a window
Nobody's fool
Raised in a prison
You called a school
Taught young in legends
Told what to do
I handed my childhood
Over to you

Traveling endlessly, I'm searching my mind
I'm almost afraid of what I will find
Wandering aimlessly, oh what can I do?
I handed my future over to you, to you

Over to you
Future looks blue
What can I do?

Watching for freedom
Fighting our wars
Feeding our children
Keeping your laws
Someday you'll suffer
And what I'll do
I'll hand all your promises
Over to you

Standing inside myself, I'm losing control
You made me believe in the stories you told
Waiting impatiently, what else can I do?
I handed my future over to you, to you

Over to you
Future is blue
What can I do?

Tears filled of sadness
Stealing myself
Which burning secrets?
What do they tell?
Mad politicians
Can tell it too
I handed my children
Over to you

All over, over to you
All over, over to you
All over, over to you...

    That "the system" is designed to mold you into some sort of productive member of society through our fractured education systems, but as you grow older and reflecting back you realize that what you were taught and the people who taught it to you themselves were all misinformed and told embelished versions of, or complete fabrications of the truth of history, in turn we are led forcefully into believing in lies and are therefore brainwashed and disillusioned. Thus in turn our children are set into the same vicious cycle, but justice will be handed to "the powers that be" in the end.

    How when ozzy, or when people in general are young, they believe what they are taught and told. When they get older, they start to realize just how much of what they were taught and told were actually lies and propaganda designed to brainwash them into unconditional allegiance with the country they hail from. This leads to feelings of anger, confusion, depression, disillusionment, distress and a sense of powerlessness to change a picture that is much badder, bigger and uglier than any individual.
