How many times can they fill me with lies and I listen, again
Twisting the truth and they're playin' around with my head O.K.
The things they will do and the things they will say
When they don't really understand
Tears fill my eyes when I hear all the cries
For the reason today.
And they don't really know even what they're talkin' about
And I can't imagine what empty heads can achieve.
Leave me alone don't want your promises no more
'Cause rock'n'roll is my religion and my law
Won't ever change, they think it's strange
You can't kill rock'n'roll it's here to stay.
Looking through eyes of time mirrors reflecting their stories untrue
Promises promises, telling me all of my glories overdue.
How many times have I heard it before
And I'll probably hear it again
King of a thousand knights, pawn in a table fight
Losing to you.
And they don't really know even what they're talkin' about
And I can't imagine what empty heads can achieve.
Leave me alone don't want your promises no more
'Cause rock'n'roll is my religion and my law
Won't ever change, they think it's strange
You can't kill rock'n'roll it's here to stay.
Even the rhymes that they give me in times of confession ain't true
Outcome is obvious all for them none for us meaning you too.
The things they will do and the things they will say
When they don't really understand.
Fear of rejection I need their protection
I'm making a stand.
And they don't really know even what they're talkin' about
And I can't imagine what empty heads can achieve.
Leave me alone don't want your promises no more
'Cause rock'n'roll is my religion and my law
Won't ever change, they think it's strange
You can't kill rock'n'roll it's here to stay.
Leave me alone don't want your promises no more
'Cause rock'n'roll is my religion and my law
Won't ever change, they think it's strange
You can't kill rock'n'roll it's here to stay.

    I like what everyone here had to say but these lyrics can also be applied to his exband black sabbath i dont mean to be that guy, but i just left my own band (justlike how ozzy was trolled out of sabbath just so they could do dio shit) and all i can think about are the words to this song, cause ozzys right about solo careers being thy path lol

    Ozzy's saying that today's world is messed up. That today's generation is told lies and that music can set you free.
