Cornucopia is the seventh track off of Black Sabbath's fourth album Vol. 4.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Too much in the truth they say
Keep it 'till another day
Let them have their little game
Illusion helps to keep them sane

Let them have their little toys
Fast sports cars and motor noise
Exciting in their plastic place
Frozen food in a concrete maze

[Chorus]

You're gonna go insane
I'm trying to save your brain

[Verse 2]

All right!
I don't know what's happening
My head's all torn inside
People say I'm heavy
They don't know what I hide

Take a life, it's going cheap
Kill someone, no one will weep
Freedom's yours, just pay your dues
We just want your soul to use

[Chorus]

You're gonna go insane
I'm trying to save your brain

Trivia

  • While struggling to record the song “Cornucopia” after “sitting in the middle of the room, just doing drugs,” Bill Ward feared that he was about to be fired from the band.
