"You're No Different" as written by and Ozzy Osbourne....
How many times can you put me down
Till in your heart you realize
If you choose to criticize
You choose your enemies

Everything that I say and do
In your eyes is always wrong
Tell me where do I belong
In a sick society

You're no different to me
You're no different
No different to me

Look at yourself instead o' looking at me
With accusation in your eyes
Do you want me crucified
For my profanity

Concealing your crimes behind a
Grandeur of lies
Tell me where do I begin
If you think you're without sin
The first to cast the stone

Living my life in a way
That I choose
You say I should apologize
Is that envy in your eyes
Reflecting jealousy

Tell me the truth and I'll admit
To my guilt
If you'll try to understand
But is that blood that's on your hand
From your democracy

    Song MeaningIt's about being judged. Back in the 80s, the media and critics accused Ozzy of being a satan worshiper and corrupting the youth of America. They said a ton of hateful crap about him in articles and magazines. Ozzy merely points out that his critics are no different than him. The same critics and politicians that referred to Ozzy's music as devil music were the same ones doing bad things themselves.

    General CommentI first heard this song in biology class at school. The lyrics are so true. People criticize me for being different, and not thinking the way most people do. This song delivers the same general retort that I give.

    General CommentThis is perhaps one of the most aggressive, meaningwise, of Ozzy's songs. Look at the lyrics - they're a blatant attack on those who'd spit on him, cast him down. 'You're No Different' is perhaps the anthem of the outsider who stands tall. For those of us who choose not to follow the crowd, and who ignore what others think, this song is ours.

    General CommentI enjoy this song very much. One of the many reasons I love Ozzy (and Black Sabbath for that matter) is that he has a talent in replying to his critics in his music, while also not keeping a mean tone or grudge toward them. We should all be so articulate and forgiving...

    General CommentIf you are American, you might take the lyrics as meaning "to me, you're no different", but I think he means "you're no different from me".
