Iron Man

Currently hooked onto this song. Its by Black Sabbath.

Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?

Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
We’ll just pass him there
Why should we even care?

He was turned to steel
In the great magnetic field
When he traveled time
For the future of mankind

Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance
That he will soon unfold

Now the time is here
For iron man to spread fear
Vengeance from the grave
Kills the people he once saved

Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge

Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron man lives again!

The concept of 'riff' adds beauty to the song! Well, a riff - is a short, repeated, memorable musical phrase, often pitched low on the guitar, which focuses much of the energy and excitement of a rock song.

This song is about a man who travels back in time to warn the people about the danger.But he turns into iron. And hence, Iron Man. Now, nobody wants him. This instills in him the thought of acting against his vow.Killing! This cannot be called as deviation from his prophecy, but,its destruction.Destroying the mankind.

Iron Man makes you go Paranoid!
