Running Out Of Time Lyrics

Been around this world so many times
If you could only see my mind
I watch my secret heaven turn to hell

Faith alone has guided me
The ghost of my own destiny
I haven't even got a soul to sell

All the thing I put me through
I wouldn't wish my hell on you
You'll never know what's going on inside

Just another lonely broken hero
Picking up the pieces of my mind
Running out of faith and hope and reason
I'm running out of time
Running out of time

Trouble always seems find
A way to live inside my mind
My haunted head and me remain alone
Underneath my masqerade
A simple man who's so afraid
I try to find a light to guide me home

Momma please just hold me tight
Feeling so afraid tonight
Cause your the only one that really knows

Just another lonely broken hero
Picking up the pieces of my mind
Running out of faith and hope and reason
I'm running out of time
Running out of time

Fighting for my sanity
Many nights of tragedy
Got to leave my Wretched ways behind

Just another lonely broken hero
Picking up the pieces of my mind
Running out of fate and hope and reason
I'm running out of time
Running out of time
I'm running out of time
Running out of time

[spoken:]
Underneath my masquerade
a simple who's still afraid

i want to know what other people think about this song?!

An error occured.

It's about a soldier living with his past experiences post-war. Struggling to stay sane even after all the things he saw that were so terrible he would never wish them upon anyone. He killed people, so he has no soul to sell. Just another lonely broken hero means that he's just one of many soldiers suffering through the same thing. Also, in the second verse, he makes mention of faith guiding him, but in the chorus he says he's running out of faith, because he starts to question if what he did was really right.

I love this song. It's the best. And I love Insanity's analysis.

I agree with Insanity also and when Ozzy says "another lonely broken hero" at the time of the war the soldiers were heros but once its over our country always has a knack to dump them off on their own and the psychological affects of the war and all the death and killing they did and witnessed leaves them mentally broken.

Wow, I love Insanity's analysis. I also believe that it is about a war veteran dealing with the post-war struggles to stay sane after seeing all of the horrors of war. It is really moving. I just signed up on this site to say that it really means something to me, because my uncle went to war in Vietnam, and once he came back, he was a different man, and was never the same again.

This is my favourite Ozzy song!

i think this song is about ozzy. i mean the lonely broken hero is him. he a hero to all these metal heads and he's broken from the drug use. in the start of the song it say he watched his heaven slowly turn to hell. he watched his dream of being a rockstar disappier. ozzy hasent had a soul to sell because he sold it for drugs. i mean in all in all its about ozzy strrugleing to find life through the hell he been through. this album talks alot about ozzy. in get me through ozzy say. he's not the Anti christ or the Iorn man( black sabbiath) an amazing album. OZZY OSBOURNE IS MY HERO I LOVE THE MAN
