Black Sabbath fans can feast their eyes on the latest installment of hand-written lyrics from the British metal legends' hugely successful 2013 studio album "13."

Posting an update to their official Facebook page on Jan. 5, the "Paranoid" hitmakers have unveiled the penned lyrics to "Pariah," a bonus track found on the Deluxe Edition of the Rick Rubin produced comeback album.

The song lyrics were written by Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler with music composed by guitarist Tony Iommi and frontman Ozzy Osbourne.

As a fan humorously comments, the written lyrics suggest, "the drugs kicked in, halfway thru writing this! lol"

The band previously posted hand-written lyrics for "Peace Of Mind", "End Of The Beginning", "Live Forever", "Age Of Reason" and their Grammy-nominated Best Rock Song "God Is Dead?"

"13" has been nominated for three 2014 Grammy nominations including: Best Rock Album, as well as Best Rock Song and Best Metal Performance for “God Is Dead?”

A new live set titled "Gathered in their Masses" hit shelves in November and is available as DVD, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray/CD, DVD/CD or as a Deluxe Box.

The reunited lineup, featuring founding members Osbourne, Iommi and Butler, will perform a 10-city tour of Canada in 2014, which kicks off on April 3 in Halifax, NS at Metro Centre and winds up April 22 in Edmonton, AB at Rexall Place.

See for more details.
