"Little Dolls" as written by and R. Rhodes O. Osbourne....
Wrything and screaming the pain just won't go
He'll show you no mercy.
Your image in his hands it's useless to try
Escaping his curses.

The pins and needles prick the skin of little dolls.

Tortured and flaming you give birth to hell
Living a nightmare.
It's a pity you'll pray for your death
But he's in no hurry.

The pins and needles prick the skin of little dolls.

No where to run - your fate is in his hands
Your time has come - you'll live to his command
I'm warning you - the worst is yet to come
The killer who - remains a mystery

I that believe in the stories of old - would never fight it.
Demons and curses that play on our soul
Like something ignited.

You never imagined such a fate could follow you
(You never thought it was true)
And when it's your time I wonder how you'll do
Your kind of trouble's running deeper than the sea
You broke the world
You've been a fool
The little doll is you yeah!

No where to run - your fate is in his hands
Your time has come - you'll live to his command
I'm warning you - the worst is yet to come
The killer who - remains a mystery

Wrything and screaming the pain just won't go
He'll show you no mercy.
Your image in his hands it's useless to try
Escaping his curses.

No where to run - your fate is in his hands
Your time has come - you'll live to his command
I'm warning you - the worst is yet to come
The killer who - remains a mystery

    General CommentIve always thought this song is about "God" or whatever rules our world.
    We are all "Little Dolls", unable to escape from the pain of living, and ultimately death.
    Some of Ozzys lyrics(most of them he didnt write) in 70's to 80's have a "satanic" bent. like sabs "who are you?" in this view God is an impersonal force, that could care less about our suffering.
    anyways in this song, God is a killer, that remains a mystery. "the worst is yet to come" could be a allusion to going to hell, after death.

    It also could be a song about a serial killer/torturer, but im less partial to this interpretation.

    Song MeaningThe meaning of the song so obvious that people are trying to find some hidden meaning other than the meaning that is staring right at them. It s about being under a voodoo doll curse.. that's it.. nothing more.. no drug addiction symbolism.. no higher religious symbolism.. It's about someone in a state of living hell because someone has a little doll of him and is sticking pins and needles into it.. Seriously, sometimes a apple is just and apple.. LOL
