Black Sabbath – Slipping Away lyrics

Slipping away, just a heartbeat from disaster
Nothin' to make me stay
Close your eyes and I'll be gone
Turn the page
Got to start another story
Slipping away, slipping away
Time to move along, no reason to stay
Not when I'm slipping away

Said now look at yourself
You've been runnin' me in circles
'Round and 'round you go
You're a song without an end
Can you alight, yeah
From the city of the gypsies
Runnin' away, slippin' away
Right behind the plow

Slippin' away, slippin' away
Nobody to pay
Look out, 'cause I'm slipping away

Droppin' the glass
I won't leave you my reflection
I'll kiss you without a fact
No more road to turn me bad
Tell me you will
Just don't question my direction
Breakin' away, slippin' away
Waiting to find yourself...

Slippin' away, slippin' away
Nobody to pay
Look out 'cause I'm slippin' away
No more running in a circle
It's time to move along
'Round, 'round, 'round we go,
Stuck without an inch, so I'm slippin' away
Slipping away!
