Black Sabbath is playing the KLBJ 40th Anniversary Show July 27 at Frank Erwin Center.  They are releasing their new album "13" June 10th. The first song released from the album has a controversial title "God Is Dead?" What do you think of this song?  You can hear the song in the promotional video and check out the lyrics below.

Lost in the darkness 
I fade from the light 
Faith of my father, my brother, my maker and savior 
Help me make it through the night 
Blood on my conscious 
And murder in mind 
Out of the gloom I rise up from my tomb into impending doom 
Now my body is my shrine 

The blood runs free 
The rain turns red 
Give me the wine 
You keep the bread 
The voices echo in my head 
Is God alive or is God dead? 
Is God dead? 

Rivers of evil 
Run through dying land 
Swimming in sorrow, they kill, steal, and borrow. There is no tomorrow 
For the sinners will be damned 
Ashes to ashes 
You cannot exhume us all 
Who do you trust when corruption and lust, creed of all the unjust, 
Leaves you empty and uncalled? 

When will this nightmare be over? Tell me! 
When can I empty my head? 
Will somebody tell me the answer? 
Is God really dead? 
Is God really dead? 

To safeguard my philosophy 
Until my dying breath 
I transfer from reality 
Into a mental death 
I empathize with enemy 
Until the time is right 
With God and Satan at my side 
From darkness will come light 

I watch the rain 
And it turns red 
Give me more wine 
I don’t need bread 
These little nightmares in my head 
I don’t believe that God is dead 
God is dead 

Nowhere to run 
Nowhere to hide 
Wondering if we will me again 
On the other side 
Do you believe a word 
what the Good Book said? 
Or is it just a holy fairy tale 
And God is dead? 
God is Dead x4 


But still the voices in my head 
Are telling me that god is dead 
The blood pours down 
The rain turns red 
I don’t believe that God is dead 
God is Dead x4
