Paranoid


#1

Finished with my woman
'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane
because I am frowning all the time

All day long I think of things
but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind
if I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me, occupy my brain?
Oh yeah
I need someone to show me
the things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make true happiness,
I must be blind

Make a joke and I will sigh
and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel and
love to me is so unreal

And so as you hear these words
telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life
I wish I could but it's too late

I Don't Know

People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind
Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look at me for answers
Don't ask me - I don't know
How am I supposed to know
Hidden meanings that will never show
Fools and prophets from the past
Life's a stage and we're all in the cast
Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right,
Asking me who to follow, don't ask me, I don't know,
I don't know - I don't know - I don't know
Nobody ever told me I found out for myself
Ya gotta believe in foolish miracles
It's not how you play the game
It's if you win or lose you can choose
Don't confuse win or lose, it's up to you
It's up to you - it's up to you - it's up to you
(solo)
People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind
Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look at me for answers
Don't ask me - I don't know
How am I supposed to know
Hidden meanings that will never show
Fools and prophets from the past
Life's a stage and we're all in the cast
Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right,
Asking me who to follow, don't ask me, I don't know,
I don't know - I don't know - I don't know

Ozzy didn't even write those lyrics. Geezer wrote almost all of Sabbath's song lyrics.

Sorry, sir. No.


#11

I love them both, but I figured since Edgy had a BS/OZZY tune up, i'd put up OZZY.


#12

I'll be honest, Ozzy the person annoys the fuck out of me and I actually have a hard time listening to his recent vocals. He's become a postage stamp of himself.

I cannot every decry his legendary influence, though.

Oh, I thought this was a thread about paranoia...

Walks away


#15

Fixed.


#16

No you probably like Van Hagar too.


#17

Pfff. Not even a good analogy.


#18

At least Dio never stooped to this kind of ghey shit:

Prince of Dorkness!


#19

I remember hearing a story of Ozzy writing Paranoid on a napkin from a diner they were at immediately prior to recording the song...

Geezer wrote it, Ozzy read it.
