After Forever is the second track off of Black Sabbath's third studio album "Master of Reality".

This track along with "Fairies Wear Boots" was released as a single that same year and as the first single for the album. But it failed to chart.

Lyrics

Have you ever thought about your soul can it be saved?

Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave

Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you?

Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?

When you think about death do you lose your breath or do you keep your cool?

Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope do you think he's a fool?

Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light and I've changed my ways

And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared at the end of our days

Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say

If they knew you believe in God above?

They should realize before they criticize

That God is the only way to love

Is your mind so small that you have to fall

In with the pack wherever they run

Will you still sneer when death is near

And say they may as well worship the sun?

I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ

I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced

Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe?

You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve

Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone

Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one

The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate

Or will you still jeer at all you hear, yes I think it's too late

Notes

  • The original album jacket credited Iommi as the composer for the song (including the lyrics), but this was later changed in the "Black Sabbath Black Box Set" where it changed all crediblity (including "Embryo" and "Orchid") to all band members.
