Black Sabbath - After Forever
After Forever
(Black Sabbath)

Have you ever thought about your soul, can it be saved?
Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay your grave
Is God just within your head or is he a part of you?
Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were at 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 the truth. Yes I have 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 believed 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 might as well worship the sun.

I think it is true it was people like you that crucified Christ
I think it is sad that the opinion you had was the only one voiced.
Will you be so sure when your day is near say you won't believe?
You had a 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 is 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.

To all Satanists, atheists and unbelievers: Straighten up your life before it's too late. There is a God Almighty. Admit it. Don't deny. Before you die, you will feel that there is God. Actually if you're not numb and without pride, when you see a close relative of yours (e.g. mother, wife) is sick or dying, you can feel that there is God. You can feel that the doctors don't hold the lives of people but someone who is more supernatural. It maybe already too late if you will continue doing your wicked ways and repent on the later days of your life. Don't waste your time. Don't waste your life.

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth,
while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh,
when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
Ecclesiastes 12:1 KJV

(The song After Forever was covered by Biohazard in the Nativity In Black tribute album)

Well I guess I'm one of those guys who still love to hear music from the 90's and 80's. For the reason that these decades are the historical climax of metal music which gave us the legendary metal bands such as Metallica and Megadeth. Many of those (quick to criticize) people think that these bands promotes Satanism and other like. But by simply reading the song lyrics will make you think otherwise. I'm not praising or promoting these bands but what I'm pointing here is to read the lyrics and probably you may get something nice from its message.

Perhaps, it is more intelligent to listen to these bands than memorizing the songs we're hearing these days on the radio. Don't believe on some gossips about hidden messages thru back masking. They simply do not exist and just imagination of some hypocrites. Remember the time were back-masking was featured in Magandang Gabi Bayan hosted by VP Noli DeCastro? Please take note that it was the same time that the song "Banal na Aso, Santong Kabayo" are getting more popular. In that song written by Yano, the band explicitly attacked the hypocrisy of the catholic church goers and the pastors who preach in the streets asking for money.

These bands (foreign/local) may look scary sometimes, but don't judge them by how they dress or look like. Good looking musicians are more scarier with their empty songs. Read the lyrics.

Dave Mustaine
