"No Easy Way Out" as written by Ozzy Osbourne and Timothy J Palmer....
Looking to the mirror
From the other side
Seeing her reflection
And it blows my mind
Trying to deny it
But damage is done
I'll just run as always
But the race is run

You've got to tell me it's over now
I'm trapped inside of a dream
The crushing weight on my shoulders now
Is bearing down and it seems
There's just no easy way out
No easy way out

Read the daily fiction, Superman is dead
Crushing coins of silver, imitating lead
Then if you will fix the children of the past
I guess their's isn't welcome, doesn't time move fast

You've got to tell me it's over now
I'm trapped inside of a dream
The crushing weight on my shoulders now
Is bearing down and it seems
There's just no easy way out
No easy way out

Night in the shadow of man
This is the dawn of the dead
Don't let it live in your head
And then now as the sabbath begins
It wakes your nightmare again
So run away if you can
So just run
Run as fast as you can

You've got to tell me it's over now
I'm trapped inside of a dream
The crushing weight on my shoulders now
Is bearing down and it seems
There's just no easy way out

Too late too tell me it's over now
Falling apart at the seams
No angel sits on my shoulders now
I hold my head and it screams
There's just no easy way out
No easy way out

    General CommentReally? Three comments? You realize this Ozzy's best song outside of Black Sabbath. Anyway, great song, great dude, can't wait for the next Ozzfest.

    General CommentOzzy's feeling a little burnt out eh?
    He is now thinking of himself as old...and
    thinks he messed himself up pretty bad...
    physically, psychologically, and spiritually (see Facing Hell).
    Too bad really 'cause he seems like a nice guy.
    But hey...Jesus forgives...and if you ask me, Ozzy has
    actually done a lot of good with his music too.
    You never hear about the good he has done...
    but since he split from Black Sabbath he has addressed
    some pretty serious philosophical issues in a
    way that is pretty sound and non-satanic.
    He just likes to put on a show...but he ain't evil.

    General CommentActually, he HAS messed himself up pretty bad over the years. Not too long ago he stopped using drugs, except for alchohol, he's in his 50s and he has a family he's had to help take care of. Not to mention he's been on of the favorite singers to people for nearly 3 generatons. He's doing great for all he's done and gone through.

    General CommentI'm surprised there are not more comments on this song! It's actually one of my favourites from a really underrated album.
