    Default Any Sabbath song that heals your mind?

    As a f6 student in Hong Kong, I have to face a lot of homework and tests every week so I can never escape from the high pressure.
    Sometimes I feel depressed about my future but every time when I listen to Wheels of Confusion, I have energy to keep fighting. And that's why I personally love Wheels of Confusion more than Supernaut. :D
    Do you guys have songs that can heal your mind?

    What a really cool idea for a thread.

    Just from a purely musical point of view, A National Acrobat and Spiral Architect have always helped put me in a good place, along with instrumentals like Fluff, Laguna Sunrise, Orchid...

    Lyrically, Children Of The Grave, Into The Void, After Forever and Lord Of This World reach me on a spiritual level if you will. Johnny Blade and Junior's Eyes remind me to walk a mile in other people's shoes and to be more understanding than I am naturally.
    The blind men shout "Let the creatures out, we'll show the unbelievers."
    The napalm screams of human flames, of a prime time Belsen feast ... yeah!
    As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy.

    Symptom of the Universe is great for that.

    I'm surprised to see you go for Wheels over Supernaut - I find Supernaut's a real uplifting blast

    Die Young, The Mob Rules and Country Girl too (CG musically rather than lyrically - my wife's not 'up from a nether world, just to bust another soul' ...or is she?! ).

    I think CG is a superb sing-along track, joining in with all Dio's 'yeah's etc.

    it is WHEELS OF CONFUSION for me too! It's the simplicity and power! Just one chord again and again. . . . and also the beauty of the lyrics.

    Yeah! I play Supernaut whenever I have to do something I'm finding difficult for some reason - boring chores, that difficult letter/email I keep putting off, a piece of my regular work that doesn't seem to hang together, etc. Always takes me to a happy place!

    Entire albums do - Master of Reality, Sabotage, and Born Again.

    Dehumanizer is very strong. "Buried Alive", "Time Machine", and "Computer God" always rejuvinate me.

    I can't say that any one Black Sabbath song heals my mind more than another. A bottle of whiskey heals my mind pretty well though.

    The song Born Again. Whenever i feel bad, sad and my psychology is not the best, Born Again, really lifts my mood. All of the lyrics are managing to help me get through my difficult phases and definetely, they keep me going back on track. I'm feeling born again from my ashes and then, i can face everything without fear.

    Two great songs Sellingmysoul, that also have a healing effect on me.

    Another one I'd like to add to that would be Spiral Architect, this song has a soothing affect every time I listen to it.
