"No More Tears" as written by John Purdell, Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde....
The light in the window is a crack in the sky
A stairway to darkness in the blink of an eye
A levee of tears to learn she'll never be coming back
The man in the dark will bring another attack

Your mamma told you that you're not supposed to talk to strangers
Look in the mirror and tell me do you think your life's in danger here

No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears

Another day passes as the night closes in
The red light goes on to say it's time to begin

I see the man around the corner waiting, can he see me?
I close my eyes and wait to hear the sound of someone screaming here

No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears

It's just a sign of the times
Going forward in reverse
Still, these were our first
Its just a hand in the bush
A hand in the bush

So now that it's over can't we just say good-bye? (bye-bye, bye-bye)
I'd like to move on and make the most of the night
Maybe a kiss before I leave you this way
Your lips are so cold I don't know what else to say

I never wanted it to end this way my love, my darling
Believe me when I say to you in love I think
I'm falling here

No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears
No more tears, tears, tears

It's just a hand in the bush
(In the bush, in the bush, in the bush)

    General Commentno one ever includes the spoken word part...

    "It's just a sign of the times.
    Going forward in reverse.
    Still, he who laughs last
    is just a hand in the bush"

    General CommentThis song is about a serial killer. At least that's what Ozzy says... think about that as you read the lyrics; it makes sence.

    General CommentThis song is about a serial killer. The song came to be on the No More Tears album when ozzy was auditioning for bass players. Mike Inez was auditioning played the bass line and that became the inspiraiton for the entire song and the title to the album.

    General Commenti dont think the focus of the song is supposed to be the killer, i think the idea is that you cant change the past, only the future so theyres no use crying about what cannot be changed

    General CommentThis song has a great guitar part. To me I see it as getting over things but thats the way I see it which probaly isnt what it means. This song is a very complex song with many angles of feeling.
