Never Say Die! - Cover Front

Swinging the Chain is the ninth and final track off of Black Sabbath's eighth album Never Say Die!.

Lyrics

 It's against my uniform
 To be a civil judge
 All the songs are history now
 'Bout rock stars and their grudge
 Let us cast our minds back
 To thirty years or more
 You took up all the vandals
 Will Hitler beat 'em all?
 
 And we're sad and sorry
 Really sorry that it happened that way
 Yes, we're sad and sorry
 But why'd you have to treat us that way?
 
 Compare ourselves with others
 And cover them in sin
 Oh, God what a terrible
 A terrible state we're in
 There must be some way out of here
 A compromise that's right
 If we cannot work it out
 We're gonna have to fight
 
 Yes, we're sad and sorry
 Really sorry that it happened that way
 Yes, we're sad and sorry
 We cannot go on in those days
 
 I'm talking about my brothers
 Yeah, I'm talking 'bout sisters as well
 I wish you good luck
 Good luck!
 
 Oh, but the world's still on fire (you gotta believe)
 Chain the hope you take on, liar (you gotta believe)
 This fire (you gotta believe)
 We're on fire, we're on fire, yeah! (you gotta believe)
