Cross of Thorns is the second track off of Black Sabbath's seventeenth album Cross Purposes.

Lyrics

 Don't come closer, because it ain't safe here
 Just turn around now and walk away
 I've gotta tell you, there are no rules here
 Sometimes I wonder, what goes on there
 Behind those eyes
 
 When a promise is broken, and no one trusts you
 Young ones crying with there heads in their hands
 When you talk about saving, the souls of the faithful
 You can't help thinking you've got blood on your hands
 From a cross of thorns, cross of thorns
 
 Tongues of fire always talking, 
 Wasted words that ring in my ears
 We're still waiting, losing patience. 
 Will all the lies of, 400 years
 
 I've got to tell you, there are no rules here
 Sometimes I wonder, what goes on there
 Behind those eyes
 
 When a promise is broken, and no one trusts you
 Young ones crying with there heads in their hands
 When you talk about saving, the souls of the faithful
 You can't help thinking you've got blood on your hands
 
 We gave you yesterdays, and now you want to-day
 Oh, from the hands of death we take our daily bread
 Now all we do is choke, and the words that you once
 Spoke, fade away
 Look at what you've done, it's a cross of thorns,
 Cross of thorns
 
 Take away, oh, this cross of thorns, 
 Look at what you've done, look at what you've done
 It's a cross of thorns
 
 When a promise is broken, and no one trusts you
 You've got blood on your hands, 
 From a cross of thorns
