Black Sabbath - The Shining

There's a man who sees all there is to see
And what the future holds for all
As the days grow dark with the grim and final warning
Beware of the one with invisible friends
He will steal into your mind
And all too soon the signs begin to show

Rise up to the shining
Live long live now
Rise up to the shining
Don't be blind by fools again
Fools again

As the pages turn and the story's told
From the visions he had seen
The house on the hill, with the haunted eyes, that calls
No one laughed as madness came out to play its game
If you stay too long you'll finally go insane

Rise up to the shining
Live long live now
Rise up to the shining
Don't be blind by fools again
Fools again

Bells will take their toll on your way
There's no way we're born to shine
Before our time, all your life
You're on your own lonely road
Lost in a time, let the light lead your way
To the golden throne, it's the only way

Rise up to the shining
Live long live now
Rise up to the shining
Don't be blind by fools again

Rise up to the shining
Live long live now
Rise up the shining
Don't be blind by fools again

Oh rise up, to the shining
Wise up they're gonna steal your mind
Rise up, the house is gonna haunt you
No one laughed, no one cried
You stayed too long, you're finally gonna stay
