The song comes from the album Paranoid which was released in 1970. Its a beautiful, mesmerizing track which takes on a trip more colorful than a  freaking rainbow. Pantera also covered the song.

Black Sabbath – Planet Caravan lyrics

We sailed through endless skies
Stars shine like eyes
The black night sighs
The moon in silver trees
Falls down in tears

Light of the night
The earth, a purple blaze
Of sapphire haze in orbital ways

While down below the trees
Bathed in cool breeze
Silver starlight breaks dawn from night
And so we pass on by
The crimson eye of great god Mars
As we travel the universe
