Who Said That?

"I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ

I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced

Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe?

You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve

Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone

Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one

The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate

Or will you still jeer at all you hear? Yes! I think it's too late. "

Ozzie Osborne from Black Sabbath but I can't remember the album. I think some other songs on the album had similar lyrics.

Now this is a first- a Who Said That? on a Saturday. You must have been reminiscing or come across some old music that you could not resist to post. Tobin seems to be in the know on this one. Black Sabbath brings back some memories- one of my brothers (who is 56 now and 4 years older than me) used to listen to them along with Humble Pie and the band that played Inagodadivida (I cannot remember their name). It brought back memories of me walking down into our basement where my brothers bedroom was and seeing those albums laying around. Deep Purple also comes to mind.

This one I know Ozzie Osborne and Black Sabbath.

I find it kind of ironic that you have Ozzie- the self-proclaimed heroin addict (or is it ex-addict now?) scolding others ("people like you") about their lack of evidence of Christian fruit in their lives. One of the hymn's we sang at Church this morning contained the following words: "no question will be asked us How often have we come? Although we often wandered, It is our Father's home. O all embracing mercy, o ever open door." Seems like a contradiction to me.

"Inagodadivida (I cannot remember their name)."

That would be the great hymnist I. Ron Butterfly.

"lee n. field,"

I hope you are using humor and not sarcasm in your remark-that did make me chuckle if it was humor. I. Ron Butterfly the great hymn writer.

I.Ron Butterfly is a reference to the Simpsons.

Unfortunately, I am not an avid Simpson's watcher- probably to my detriment. So, that one went right over my head.

This is Jimmy P. Brown, II (who sang the lyrics) or George Ochoa (who wrote them) of the Christian Metal Band Deliverance. These lyrics come from the song "After Forever" off their 1991 album, "What a Joke." That album is still in my music rotation! It's one of the best Christian Metal albums ever! Funny...I never took you for a long-hair metal-head, but it just goes to show that anyone can appreciate good music!

I tried to convince my mom in the 70's that Ozzy was cool because of this song off of the Black Sabbath "Master of Reality" album. Never did convince her for our church was into the "Burn your worldly music" phase and it was one of the first she suggested I get rid of. She eventually won because "somehow" it disappeared.

Will, I guess she burned it at a church really. What a shame that the church tells us that we need to listen to christian music, then puts out a few good bands and several that are really not that good. So if anyone thinks we need to listen to christian music I'd say go to church and sing the Hymns and then go home and listen to what ever music you find relaxing rather Mozart or Led Zeppelin. If anyone complains turn it up and ignore then.

That's from the Black Sabbath song "After Forever" written by Ozzy Osbourne! I've always found that song to be...interesting.

I finally see onee I know right off the bat, and it's already been answered--
After Forever by Black Sabbath-from the album Master of Reality.

Sung by Ozzy Osbourne, but many of the lyrics were written by Terrance Geezer Butler (The bass player)

Interesting rhyme of Christ and voiced.
While there are good words in the song, I can't believe he believes it.
