Ozzy Osbourne - Junkie Lyrics




You're coming down badly
You're crippled inside
A rat in your sewer
You've no place to hide
A gut wrenching fever
Addicted to death
You don't give a fuck
If it means your last breath

You try so hard to quit
But you'll never admit
You're the junkie
There's no reasoning why
Cause the mirror don't lie
You're the junkie

You crave for the needle to stick in your vein
Can't wait for the poison to kill all the pain
You buy your cheap ticket to take a short ride
That beautiful flower is eating your mind

You try so hard to quit
But you'll never admit
You're the junkie
There's no reasoning why
Cause the mirror don't lie
You're the junkie

Your name means nothing
You don't know the score
Body is aching you still crave for more
Sometimes you wish that you'd never been born
Tormenting came with a crown full of thorns

You're chasing the dragon
You're chasing the high
A bird with one wing
Who's still trying to fly
You're all out of spirit
A dead man alive
A born again junkie
You'll never survive

You try so hard to quit
But you'll never admit
You're the junkie
There's no reasoning why
Cause the mirror don't lie
You're the junkie

Junkie
Junkie
Junkie
Junkie

  5. Celso Rodrigo

    At 00:09 when all instruments get in when you listen in ear phones you can hear a sibiling “aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” subliminal like a whisper when the thing hit!
    Ozzy with zack and trujillo, like we say in Brazil, “puta q pariu”!!! Ultra strong sound! It’s a shame he don’t play that B side songs at the stage!!!

  6. Gary Reeves

    Ozzy kicks ass

  7. gozer gozerian

    Ivan S.

  8. Deck Ard

  9. daniel-Smokes-Kush TEXAS420

    This song sounds even better when you're high , in my humble opinion . I was listening to it sober earlier today, now I just smoked 3 different things and now it has me dancing around the room .✌🏽✌🏽

    SZNS DJ

    Bro, I don't think you know the meaning of this song.

    Michael Lemke

    😂😂😂😂😂

  10. Premiumboxingtips Predictions

    This is a little known gem. My favourite Sabbath song. Amazing.

    Henry Morin

    Ozzy left Sabbath decades ago... It's an Ozzy song..

  11. Scoopa Quills46

  20. Johannes Eugen Tuhkanen

    Junkie... Thats me! Ozzy uses my internet name, I call someone to get some money. I have not given permission to use my name. Someone have to pay me for it... Good song... I forgive.

  21. JJ Bush

    The demon inside 😫👊🏻

  22. Steve Fooks

    Wow, I remember when this song/album came out man. I thought this was a wicked tune, but I never thought I would know first-hand what the Ozzman was singing about... Here I am X amount of years later addicted to heroine and meth, silently hoping every single fucking day that something will fucking kill me. I've had several overdoses, but there's ways some helpful fucking asshole around to hit me with a shot of narcan or call 911... Fuck...

  29. Brandi Sauvageau

    I decided this song to my ex, still a junkie and missing his kids life. I have never been happier to be out of the grip of a junkie.

  30. Dee Harris

    It's like I said I like all Ozzy's music. even back in his Black Sabbath day's.

  42. 76southernpride

    It's about any drug, or hard alcohol that makes you a junkie. And yes, alcoholics can be junkies too. Those that wake up in the morning and the first thing they do is grab the bottle, and that's how they get through their day, every day

    Dylan Williams

    Kristefer Quealey
    Junkie - a person with a compulsive habit or obsessive dependency on something.
    Like you said the Lyrics can apply to other drugs. An obsessive dependency to buy some new trendy thing each day of the week would make one a junkie

    jeraldjones72

    you are dead on it so many people are confused and yes alcohol pimps you just like heroin or coke or whatever

    first last

    you can be a functional "alcoholic" but I haven't seen too many functional heroin/meth addicts just my observation

    jeraldjones72

    @first last true ive been all of them so i know

    76southernpride

    @Kristefer Quealey true but just about anything can make you a junkie

    Yes. Bought this new and right off the bat felt the same...about the solo.

  67. Johnny Joseph

    +wow06 Yeah, right. Goes to show you know less than nothing about what a tweaker sounds like. I won't deny when I was in my teens (in the '70s) I loved gettin high. And I did. On real good acid, like 4 way window pane, and orange Sunshine. Tried everything else too, but speed back then was either black beauties or Preludin. There was no meth yet. Not on the South Side of Chicago. And I never liked speed. So wow, learn something. Read a book. Cuz you come across like your mommy and daddy were siblings. (That means they were Brother and Sister) I know you don't have the brain capacity to know that. DICK.

    fdasf fdasfdsa

    +Johnny Joseph lol you mad bro? lay off the window pane and little boys lol you'll be ok

    Ladon Gibbs

    Johnny Joseph get high again

    lionfish44

    There was meth back then but it was crystal meth and amped you about 14 hrs on a dime but still. Anyway I lived it to back in the day and the song is true inside and out man

    FOXTROT UNIFORM

    Today weed is even called flower. This came out way way way later than the 70's. Zakk wylde is playing the guitar, which means 90's til today. This is about meth, coke, and h. Each verse has a different drug it is talking about.

  68. Connie Chapman

    daniel-Smokes-Kush TEXAS420

    Nah because I think it would be glorifying it, because this song is BADASS !!

  71. gravecage

    Ricky Bobby

  72. chitownbluesy

    Forgot about this song, but I just watched SPUN and the soundtrack is brilliant. Even though Billy Corgan did it. Very cool covers of Love To Love, Loving You Sunday Morning, and Number Of The Beast. Crazy fuckin' movie. That movie should be required for junior high students. Paints meth addiction the way it should be portrayed: By drug addled lunatics that live here, but are in fact, on a different planet! FUCK METH and every scuzzball making it.

    Ray Finkle

    I agree with you 100%

    wow06

    +chitownbluesy uuummmmm ok..... you sound like you on meth broski lol

    maddog76

    +chitownbluesy ..i live in missouri...ive seen meth destroy so many lives....you never hear a meth story...with a happy ending...worst drug ever...and unlike heroin ...meth kills you very slowly rotting you from the inside out...nightmare drug for sure..

    James Guilford

    maddog76; I think you have LIFE confused with meth !
    For sure though, I have known and know, all sorts of meth users and they are as different from one another as coffee or beer drinkers. That said, my least favorite sort of drug user is the heavy meth user, who even when not using, is an aggressive, arrogant asshole, absent the psychosis.
    Speaking of heroin; this substance in pure form is one of the safest of all known drugs, when used by professional medical practitioners or for that matter, even knowledgeable, experienced heroin users.

    Please take note of the fact that with each and every wave of drug crackdowns, comes a subsequent drug ''epidemic'' and increased loss of life. These crackdowns are often accompanied by the emergence of new and more dangerous drugs and the restriction of relatively safe drugs that are in high demand.
    I could delve into the history of drug prohibition but the truth is, people are aware of the fact that the drug war was initiated for all the wrong reasons, and was never about promoting the health of the public. Sadly a large number of so called, ''patriotic, freedom loving Americans, '' though they are aware of the history of the drug war, not only continue to support this travesty in current form, but would actually like to see more of their fellow Americans, whom choose to use drugs, caged away like animals for even longer periods of time, or even executed by the state; the same state that is, that they often argue should be ''small'' and have next to no authority over individuals, or especially, commercial activity.
    Even if the drug war was being waged for the purpose of protecting public health, such a war, at least in current form, would represent an aspect of what could very well be called Authoritarian socialism. Ironically, the most ardent of drug war supporters, are also the very same people whom have the greatest hatred of, and or fear of, any aspect of socialism, or any form of socialism.
    Just as ironic, '' ironically stupid,'' is the fact that some of the most strident drug warriors, will tell you that yes, of course we as a society have a right and even a duty to protect the health of the public, by severely punishing any individual who might choose to use an illicit substance. Lo and behold, more than a few of the people who believe that an individual should be punished by the state, for the ''crime'' of willfully choosing to use, say, even one of the once legal, over the counter amphetamines, in order to get through a hard day of roofing, are the same people whom believe that the government, should not regulate the amount or types of toxic, industrial waste, businesses can dump into our environment !
    Holly shit, it's almost like some people just simply can not think rationally at all !
