Written by Black Sabbath
From the cd "Paranoid" (1970)

Finished with my woman 
'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane 
because I am frowning all the time

All day long I think of things 
but nothing seems to satisfy,
Think I'll lose my mind 
if I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me occupy my brain?
Oh yeah

I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find,
I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind

Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I can not feel and love to me is so unreal

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life, I wish I could but it's too late
