"Just Killing Time" as written by and Zakk Wylde....
I sit reflecting
I feel the end has begun
It seems my days now mirror the setting sun
So many places that I have been
This ride that was long seems so short in terms of now and then

For All that has been
And All that is
All that's to be
Lord, I'm just killing time
And time's killing me

Dead man breathing, just taking up space
Calloused and weathered like the lines on one's face
Dead man breathing, my conscience is bare
The lining of my soul is torn yet I no longer care

For All that has been
And All that is
All that's to be
Lord, I'm just killing time
And time's killing me

    General CommentWow, no reply at all? Truly one of Zakk's best songs in my opinion. He has soul, and gives the song the emotion it needs.

    General CommentLol, Zakk's "solo," yet his alliance is to Ozzy, strong and true. If Ozz asked Zakk to smell his fart, he'd be bent over backwards before Ozz would finish the sentence. JKT is a great song. I think the music to Rust + the lyrics to JKT would be perfect.

    General CommentZakk is always there for Ozzy... He still plays guitar for Ozzy during Ozzy's solo shows, which is still cool because that means more Zakk at Ozzfest when Black Sabbath isn't together.

    Oh yeah... the song is about getting old.

    General CommentYeah, Zakk and Ozzy are good friends, but it's great that Zakk formed his own band and everything. I really like this song, it's deep.
