Shaking Off the Chains is the fourth track off of Black Sabbath's eighteenth album Forbidden.

Lyrics

 Is life everything you want to be
 Does it give you everything that you need
 Does it live up to your expectations
 Are you ready for the celebrations
 
 This is not for the weak of mind
 Are you sure that you're my kind
 Do you want to be part of me
 Are you sure that you can really see
 
 Are you chained to a life that you don't want
 Is it hard for you to find a way out
 Can you live without the love that you need
 Are you sure that what you have is so real
 
 This is not for the weak of mind
 Are you sure that you're my kind
 Do you want to be part of me
 Are you sure that you can really see
 
 All of your life, they try to take your cover
 Turn you into another, and make you change your name
 When you fall, it's up to you to recover
 You can't depend on another, to help you with the pain, 
 Yeah
 
 I'm shaking off the chains, 
 I'm shaking off the chains
 
 This is not for the weak of mind
 Are you sure that you're my kind
 Do you want to be part of me
 Are you sure that you can really see
 
 In the night, you say that things are falling
 People always calling, calling out your name
 What do you know, a face appears at the window
 Tapping on the window, the window of your soul
 
 I'm shaking off the chains, I'm tired of all the pain
 I'm shaking off the chains, let me live again
 Shaking off the chains, shaking off the chains
