Vol. 4

Wheels of Confusion is the first track off of Black Sabbath's fourth album Vol. 4.

The song's outro is entitled "The Straightener" on the US edition.


[Verse 1]

Long ago I wandered through my mind

In the land of fairy tales and stories

Lost in happiness I knew no fears

Innocence and love was all I knew

It was an illusion!

[Verse 2]

Soon the days were passing into years

Happiness just didn't come so easy

Life was more than fairy tales and daydreams

Innocence was just another word

It was an illusion!


Lost in the wheels of confusion

Running through valleys of tears

Eyes full of angry delusion

Hiding in everyday fears

[Verse 3]

So I found that life is just a game

But you know there's never been a winner

Try your hardest, you'll still be a loser

The world will still be turning when you're gone

Yeah when you're gone!
