"Back On Earth" as written by Taylor Rhodes and Richie Supa....
I have fallen from grace, and my ashes are scattered
No longer a passion and flesh
My flame is alive, though my wings have been shattered
They laid my body to rest.

My spirit is breathing, my senses are pure
Like reincarnation my soul will endure

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Back on earth
Back on earth
Back on earth
The spirit it never lets go

Like fountains of sorrow, the faces are crying
I'm witnessing all of their pain
Death is so final for only the living
The spirit will always remain

Bury me deep just to cover my sins
My soul is redeemed as the journey begins

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Back on earth
Back on earth
Back on earth
The spirit it never lets go

ah ah ah ah
ah ah ah ah

Another dimension, a river of light
I'm twisting, I'm turning, my soul is entwined

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh......

Back on earth (you thrill me)
Back on earth (reveal me)
Back on earth (still breathing)
Back on earth (release me)
Back on earth (you thrill me)
Back on earth (reveal me)

    General Commentlyricaly speaking, this is ozzys greatest achevement, the extremly mellow feel give listeners a new feel for the prince of darkness, otho no more tears, time after time and mama, im comming home did come out before this this is a true stature for the ozzmans career, this song, and this song alone made him no longer the freak that bites the head off of things but a man looking back on his exsistence, looking back on how he got where he is, and looking into the future to see what is next, this is true poetry

    General CommentOzzy is metaphorically representing himself as a phoenix. A phoenix is symbolic to death and rebirth as it builds a nest of spice and sings a song where it bursts into flames and from the ashes rises another phoenix. It sounds like he was at a period in his life where he self destructed and rebuilt himself from his own ashes.

    General CommentThis song has so many dynamics that it seems so great, which it is!!! Ozzy has a voice that makes this whole song come together and he has a past that makes it real. It shows our true human powers called will power and self motivation. Showing how you can be at the bottom or even lower but yet still succeed and become great again. Ozzy is a genius when it comes to music.

    General CommentCome on people, if u enjoy this shitty music, u have no taste at all. Count, u r a fool. The bat biting and all ozzys 4 first solo albums kicked ass. He hasnt done not a good album since. I have over 30 different metal bands in my mp3 so i know what quality is. This song is one of the worst songs ive ever heard. I know quality, this is pure garbage. Really people, u need to grow some backbone. Dont accept this shit, its not even music. Oh jesus christ there are so many other songs by other great artists, and some fools ramble about this piece of shit.

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite Ozzy song. The first time I heard it I must not have been paying attention, but I was cleaning and noticed it, so I played it, and when I heard I just froze. I thought, "my god, this is beautiful", and I just stood their for the rest of the song. Right from the beginning I knew I wanted this song played at my funeral. Don't listen to "Scorching Blood". He's a douchebag, and he obviously has no taste in music. Ozzy is a lyrical genius, and just because you don't like his style of music doesn't mean you can rag on Ozzy and call him a bad lyricist. Ozzy is the greatest musician in I don't know how many years, and it'll stay that way for a long time (crap, I'm rambling). OZZY IS GOD!
