"Selling My Soul" as written by Bob Marlette, Tony Iommi and Ozzy Osbourne....
Man of madness who lives in my head
Keeping me awake at night he sits on my bed
He drives me crazy, he won't go away
Playing his game every night and everyday, yeah-ah

My mind feels heavy, my body feels weak
Suicidal thoughts crying out for some sleep
Impending doom is what I'm about
Think I'm going mad without a shadow of doubt

I sense a serenity yeah
Is it really out there?
I don't read the holy books 'cause they take me nowhere
I can't hold on yes I'm losing control
I'm paying the price now for... Selling My Soul
Selling My Soul

I sense a serenity yeah
Is it really out there?
I don't read the holy books 'cause they take me nowhere
I can't hold on yes I'm losing control
I'm paying the price now for... Selling My Soul
Selling My Soul

Yeah-ah
For Selling My Soul
Yeah-ah
Selling My Soul
Yeah-ah
For Selling My Soul

    Song MeaningWow, I fucking love this song. It's probably one of the best Black Sabbath songs written, and that's saying something. Through my personal experiences with drugs and knowing all 4 members of Black Sabbath were heavy users, I'm assuming the song is about dealing with the effects they take on you. Your sell your soul by using them and you end up paying the price later. You can't sleep, you become depressed, and you become a total fucking zombie. These are the effects of drugs such as ecstasy when they're misused.

    General CommentI think its about someone who thinks they're going mad, just want calm and serenity back in their lives, and really regret selling their soul to the devil.

    That seems kinda obvious to me....
