The song has never been released as a single, but nonetheless has remained one of the most famous songs from the album. The song was written by all the members of the band.[1] One of the heaviest tracks on the album, themes presented in the song are love and hope. It is written in the key of C# Minor.[2] (Starting with Master of Reality, the band tuned their guitars down 1 1/2 steps.)
