"I Don't Know" as written by Jill H. Scott, Stanley Marvin Clarke, Michael Garson, Raymond Gomez and Jerry Brown....
People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind

Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look to me for answers
Don't ask me, I don't know

How am I supposed to know
Hidden meanings that will never show
Fools and prophets from the past
Life's a stage and we're all in the cast

Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right
Asking me who to follow, don't ask me, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

Nobody ever told me I found out for myself
Ya gotta believe in foolish miracles
It's not how you play the game
It's if you win or lose you can choose
Don't confuse win or lose, it's up to you
It's up to you, it's up to you, it's up to you

Go, go, go
People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind

Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look to me for answers
Don't ask me, I don't know

    General Commentzps, settle down. Are you really going to be this mad about what tense is used to describe the greatness of Randy Rhoads? Rhoads is definitely great through, now, then, and forever.

    General Commenti cant belive more people havent commented on it
    i dont wanna change the world reminds me of this song
    i guess hes pretty much saying
    hes not like a leader or anything like that
    even though he WAS part of the beginning of heavy metal!

    General Commentit's pretty straightforward. this song is about religions and choosing the right one and being under pressure from your peers and stuff, and being unsure about which [spiritual] path in life to take, because you're pretty skeptical about all of them.

    General Commentactually it's when people ask u all these question and think ur an all poweful god/sage with all the answers, but u tell them u don't know and ur not a god. that's straight from ozzy's mouth there!
