After having read Garry Sharpe-Young's account in the "Never Say Die" book, as well as Iommi's book, I can well understand Martin not wanting to get involved with the Sabbath machine again, even if he bears no particular ill will towards Iommi. It's not just as simple as Martin having been given his walking papers a couple times in favor of Dio and Ozzy. Martin was treated like an afterthought once the Dehumanizer thing started. Even Iommi admits in his book that Martin didn't get a fair deal. Martin probably fears that he would be screwed over again.
"There in the middle of the circle he stands, searching, seeking, with just one touch of his trembling hand, the answer will be found.
Daylight waits while the old man sings, heaven help me! And then like the rush of a thousand wings, it shines upon the one. And the day has just begun..." (1975)

"In the summer days we flew to the sun, on melting wings, but the seasons changed to fast, leave us all behind... Blind..." (1969)
