"Road To Nowhere" as written by Ozzy Osbourne, Zakk Wylde and Randy Castillo....
I was looking back on my life
And all the things I've done to me
I'm still looking for the answers
And I'm still searching for the key

The wreckage of my past keeps haunting me
It just won't leave me alone
I still find it all a mystery
Could it be a dream?
The road to nowhere leads to me

Through all the happiness and sorrow
I guess I'd do it all again
Live for today and not tomorrow
It's still the road that never ends

The wreckage of my past keeps haunting me
It just won't leave me alone
I still find it all a mystery
Could it be a dream?
The road to nowhere leads to me

Ah ah, the road to nowhere's gonna pass me by
Ah ah, I hope we never have to say goodbye
I never want to live without you (oh yeah)

The wreckage of my past keeps haunting me
It just won't leave me alone
I still find it all a mystery
Could it be a dream?
The road to nowhere leads to me

The road to nowhere leads to me
The road to nowhere leads to me
You got to, got to, got to lead to me
The road to nowhere leads to me
You got to, got to, got to lead to me
You got to, got to, got to lead to me
Ah, the road to nowhere

    General CommentI can't believe more people haven't commented on this song. I love the guitar work on it.

    As coconut said, Ozzy is looking back on his life and the mistakes he's made. He still finds life a mystery...still looking for "the meaning of life".

    In the second verse ("the wreckage of my past keeps haunting me"), he can't let go of his past. His alcoholism, drug abuse, and depression still haunt him...he can't forgive himself and move on with his life...he hasn't learned to "live for today and not tomorrow".

    Despite that, he decides life has been worth the ride and he would do it all again if he had the choice. In other words, he isn't saying "I wish I had never been born".

    As for the 'road to nowhere' part, I think he's saying he's trapped by his old habits...he isn't making any progress because his past keeps coming back to haunt him. It's like Pink Floyd's "The Wall", he's building a psychological wall around himself.

    At the end, he finally tears down the wall and decides the depression will pass. I think his marriage was on the rocks and he ultimately realized he had to get better or he was going to lose Sharon.

    Again, similar in theme to "The Wall" and also to the Beatles' song "Nowhere Man".
