About Children Of The Grave

"Children of the Grave" is a song by British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, from their 1971 album Master of Reality. The song lyrically continues with the same anti-war themes brought on by "War Pigs" and "Electric Funeral" from Paranoid, adding in Geezer Butler's pacifist ideals of non-violent civil disobedience. Two previously unreleased versions of this song are released on the deluxe edition of Master of Reality. The first is a version with alternate lyrics, the second an instrumental version. The song has been featured on several greatest hits and live albums. As well as being performed by Black Sabbath in concert in its various incarnations, Ozzy Osbourne performed it in concert many times as a solo artist. It appears in the video game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock as a playable song. It is also referenced in the online game League of Legends as the name of the ultimate attack of the character Mordekaiser, and is the background music for the opening level of the video game Brütal Legend.

Revolution in their minds the children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
And all the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around
And told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
And love comes flowing through, yeah

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear, yeah

So you children of the world
Listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in
Spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave
Or you children of today are children of the grave, yeah
