"Gets Me Through" as written by Ozzy Osbourne and Timothy J Palmer....
I'm not the kind of person you think I am
I'm not the anti-christ or the iron man
I have a vision that I just can't control
I feel I've lost my spirit and sold my soul

Got no control

I try to entertain you the best I can
I wish I'd started walking before I ran
But I still love the feeling I get from you,
I hope you'll never stop 'cause' it gets me through yeah
It gets me through yeah

The feelings that I hide behind
Sometimes reality's unkind
The nightmares stalk for me at night
I dread the long and lonely nights

I'm not the kind of person you think I am
I'm not the anti-christ or the iron man
But I still love the feeling I get from you
I hope you'll never stop 'cause' it gets me through yeah

I'm just trying to live yeah
I'm just trying to live yeah
I'm just trying to live yeah
I'm just trying to live yeah

    My InterpretationThis song is about how he had to adopt an Image to be a success in the music industry(sold my soul). The prince of darkness image is what led people to believe that he is the anti-christ or the devil in incarnate but in actual fact that is just his image he uses to entertain (I am not the kind of person you think i am). The second verse is about how he still needs the support from the fans as it keeps him happy(but i still love the feeling i get from you, I hope you never stop cause it gets me through

    General CommentWell obviously, Ozzy thinks people have him figured out as some antichrist "iron-man" and he is telling you hes not... come on Ozzy, why'd you admit that. I thought you were the prince of darkness.... I'm dissapointed.

    General CommentOzzy is still the prince of darkness. But you'd be sick of being called the anti-christ or ironman if you weren't. Alot of bands have been dubbed with the satanistic feel. Its been Iron Maiden, Ozzy throughout the 80s Slayer for like forever, Marilyn Manson has been called Satan himself. People just dont get it everyone gets called satanist for their lyrics. I guess thats why they call boy bands fags. You get what you put into the industry i suppose and Ozzy is finally getting more and more recognized

    General CommentAlright. This song is not about drugs, or him being the Antichrist in people's eyes(which is what I first thought it was). If you read the credits, Gets Me Through is dedicated to the fans, that they, as the song says, get him through. They give him the high that he needs to keep on performing, recording, and making me happy.LOL. To quote the credits of 'Down To Earth':
    'And most of all, to my loyal fans....I wrote "Gets Me Through as a tribute to all of you. Saying thank you just doesn't seem like enough. I owe my life to you....Ozzy.'
    And there you go! :-)

    General Commenti reckon this song means you shouldnt judge him as an anti-christ and the fans are the ones that he plays for, oh and when he was in black sabbath he released a song called Iron-man, so it was probibly refering to that song.
