"Not Going Away" as written by Zakk Wylde, Kevin Churko and Ozzy Osbourne....
Don`t tell me I'm wrong
Don't tell that you knew all along
I won't roll over dead
Only I know whats goes on my head

I've nothing to hide
I'm not guilty inside
I won't give up
After all I'm still crazy

I'm not going away
I'm not going
Try so hard to break me
But all your diamonds turn to sand

I'm not going away
I'm not going
Say goodbye forever
I'll wait for you in no man's land

Get out of my way
There's nothing you can do to change what I say
I won't ever let go
I got the answer but you'll never know

I got my eyes open wide
Ain't gonna slip up or slide
Can't take me down
After all I'm still crazy

I'm not going away
I'm not going
Try so hard to break me
But all your diamonds turn to sand

I'm not going away
I'm not going
Say goodbye forever
I'll wait for you in no man's land

I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going away

I'm not going away
I'm not going
Try so hard to break me
But all your diamonds turn to sand

I'm not going away
I'm not going
Say goodbye forever
I'll wait for you in no man's land

I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going away
I'm not going
Say goodbye forever
I'll wait for you in no man's land

    General CommentOnly one comment? Meh. I'd like to point out that it's not "run over death," - it's "roll over dead."

    To me, "Not Going Away" is sung from the point of view of somebody who's saying that he's just...not going away. The whole 'point' of the song is pretty clear, methinks. Despite the best attempts of everyone around him, he's not giving up and he's not letting them win or break him down. It can be interpreted as Ozzy's message to all his critics, but it can also be interpreted as any generic person's message to their own critics.

    General CommentI agree with you Glass Hammer. To me the song is about having enough of any given situation, being backed into a corner or up against the wall. Playing it nice and going with the flow for so long only to make others happy and now...it is enough. You thought that you could break well...hehe guess again. Plus the guitar is just so ominous....Rock on..

    General CommentI'm surprised I'm the first one to comment on this song, seeing as it's a pretty good one. This is the first track on Ozzy Osbourne's new CD "Black Rain," and I think it's an awesome opener. As for the meaning, it could mean anything really, but in my opinion, I think it's about someone famous (maybe even Ozzy himself) dying (no man's land, say goodbye forever). The person he's not going away from tried to take advantage of his money (diamonds into sand) but now she's paying the price because the memory of this person is never going away and will haunt her forever.
