Electric Funeral is the fifth track off of Black Sabbath's second studio album Paranoid.

Similar in subject matter to "War Pigs", the song is about a nuclear bomb blowing up on earth and the atrocities of it.

Lyrics

 Reflex in the sky
 Warn you you’re gonna die
 Storm coming, you’d 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 them to atomic graves
 Plastic flowers, melting sun
 Fading moon falls upon
 Dying world of radiation,
 Victims of man’s frustration
 Burning globe of obscene fire
 Like electric funeral pyre
 
 Buildings crashing down
 To Earth’s cracking ground
 Rivers turn to mud
 Eyes melt into blood
 
 Earth lies in deathbed
 Clouds cry for the dead
 Tearing falling 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 cell!
Paranoid
