Ozzy Osbourne - Revelation (Mother Earth) Lyrics

[Daisley - Osbourne - Rhoads]

Mother please forgive them
For they know not what they do
Looking back in history's books
It seems it's nothing new
Oh, let my mother live

Heaven is for heroes
And hell is full of fools
Stupidity, no will to live
They're breaking God's own rules
Please let my mother live

Father of all creation
I think we're all going wrong
The course they're taking
Seems to be breaking
And it won't take too long
Children of the future
Watching empires fall
Madness, the cup they drink from
Self destruction, the toll

I had a vision, l saw the world burn
And the seas had turned red
The sun had fallen, the final curtain
In the land of the dead
Mother, please show the children
Before it's too late
To find each other, there's no one winning
We must fight all the hate

Ozzy Osbourne Revelation (Mother Earth) Comments
  1. The M.A.

    "Revelation (Mother Earth)" kept getting better as it went on. I almost wish that the song didn't have to end!

  2. Nigel

    I’d much rather listen it a solo like this than a stupid soulless constant sweeping boring djent thing. Fuck Stevie t

  3. Giorgio Pascale

    When Randy died, so did a part of metal music. His ability to play was unmatched and truly one of the greatest of all time.

  4. soberslayer666

    How dare that Asshole E.V.H!!! Said Randy stole from him!!! And after his death he said he was very good, No he was the greatest. E.V.H could never come up with the classical beautiful sound that Randy put n his solos!!! No comparison at all, what a joke!!! Fuck u Van Halen!!!!

  5. Dana Zeller

    New age satan -Mother Nature (sometimes known as Mother Earth or the Earth-Mother) is a Greco-Roman personification of nature that focuses on the life-giving and nurturing aspects of nature by embodying it, in the form of the mother.

    Mother Nature image, 17th century alchemical text, Atalanta Fugiens
    The word "nature" comes from the Latin word, "natura", meaning birth or character (see nature (innate)). In English, its first recorded use (in the sense of the entirety of the phenomena of the world) was in 1266. "Natura" and the personification of Mother Nature were widely popular in the Middle Ages. As a concept, seated between the properly divine and the human, it can be traced to Ancient Greece, though Earth (or "Eorthe" in the Old English period) may have been personified as a goddess. The Norse also had a goddess called Jord (or Erth).

    The earliest written usage is in Mycenaean Greek: Ma-ka (transliterated as ma-ga), "Mother Gaia", written in Linear B syllabic script (13th or 12th century BC).[1] The various myths of nature goddesses such as Inanna/Ishtar (myths and hymns attested on Mesopotamian tablets as early as the 3rd millennium BC) show that the personification of the creative and nurturing sides of nature as female deities has deep roots. In Greece, the pre-Socratic philosophers had "invented" nature when they abstracted the entirety of phenomena of the world as singular: physis, and this was inherited by Aristotle. Later medieval Christian thinkers did not see nature as inclusive of everything, but thought that she had been created by God; her place lay on earth, below the unchanging heavens and moon. Nature lay somewhere in the center, with agents above her (angels), and below her (demons and hell). For the medieval mind she was only a personification, not a goddess.

    Greek myth

    Aion, Gaia and four children
    In Greek mythology, Persephone, daughter of Demeter (goddess of the harvest), was abducted by Hades (god of the dead), and taken to the underworld as his queen. Demeter was so distraught that no crops would grow and the "entire human race [would] have perished of cruel, biting hunger if Zeus had not been concerned" (Larousse 152). Zeus forced Hades to return Persephone to her mother, but while in the underworld, Persephone had eaten pomegranate seeds, the food of the dead and thus, she must spend part of each year with Hades in the underworld. Demeter's grief for her daughter in the realm of the dead, is reflected in the barren winter months and her joy when Persephone returns is reflected in the bountiful summer months.

    Demeter would take the place of her grandmother, Gaia, and her mother, Rhea, as goddess of the earth in a time when humans and gods thought the activities of the heavens more sacred than those of earth.[2]

    — Leeming, Creation Myths of the World: An Encyclopedia
    Ancient Rome
    Roman Epicurean poet Lucretius opens his didactic poem De rerum natura by addressing Venus as a veritable mother of nature. Lucretius uses Venus as "a personified symbol for the generative aspect of nature". This largely has to do with the nature of Lucretius' work, which presents a nontheistic understanding of the world that eschews superstition.

    Love Randy but please remember Iommi was this brilliant for years . Iommi was 22 on the first Sabbath LP have you heard the fucker play on it ?

  40. ícҽís թհօҽղíx

    Please let my father live...

    When Ozzy dies 😥

  41. jaggers price

    first ozzy 33lp record,summer of 1981, damn long time ago and still wait for new ozzy music.r.i.p. mr rhoads,well loved and missed

  42. Fire and Ice

    Why do these Ozzy videos get so many dislikes? This song is awesome to me.

  43. dino whitton

    Randy Rhoads is #1

  44. Terry Myers

    he. was very awesome. 1982
    I loved. his. playing. Loyd Noble. happy. hallaween

  45. joe mahma

    Father, of all creation, i think we’re all going wrong...

  46. The Woodshed

    Randy was the best hard rock guitarist of all time. He was still a kid when he and Bob Daisley wrote this album. Imagine what he would have done had he not gone for that joyride. Sadly missed.

  47. Joshua Gonzalez

    This and Diary of a Madman have some of Randy's best work, imo

  48. CodyTheDoggo

    In my opinion the greatest Metal Guitarist

  49. Maxtendo Hd

    Sounds like Tenement Funster from Queen.

  50. Davi Clar

    Just remember, this kid barely had anytime to write and figure the solos out for these two albums. Ozzy needed money and needed to tour quickly to get it. He was purely a genius.

    Shane j

    If you read Bob daisleys bio it goes into a bit of depth about the process..

  51. John G

    Although Diary is my favorite album, there's no song like this on there...this is so unique and beautiful...same with Goodbye to Romance

  52. Mitchell Hart

    Listen to the lyrics to the writ and let me know what you think about it l was hook that years yaeh

  53. Morphelia

    Heaven is for heros and hell is full of fools ....how can one think Ozzy is A Satanist

  54. Domenic Vitanza

    I saw Randy Rhoades with Ozzy back in the early days what a show....

  55. Domenic Vitanza

    One of the most beautiful songs ever written

  56. Sean Beck


  57. Casey Pilarczyk

    Ozzy fucking rocks

  58. Rob MacLeod

    I love RR I wish like fuck he was still here


    Like, UH, Randy sooooo doesn’t sucK ;)

  60. Crimson Skies

    Randy is missed but I found myself thinking about Rachel Youngblood who also passed away that morning and became a part of a sad day for the music world. With that said, the pilot Andrew Aycock also lost his life and became a part of rock history. Three lives lost and such a senseless reason.

  61. Jeff Kirkendoll


    Michele Walburn

    It's one of my favorites that he did. It got zero radio play. Had I not had the album back in the stone ages I would have missed this amazing song

  62. onewithmyself

    The prospect of teens knowing of ozzy now that post malone had him on a track...I know atleast a goof handful of kids will be turned into exploring who the legend is. And they will encounter many other legends through that. The thought of kids stumbling upon songs like this brings me much joy.

    Michele Walburn

    I cracked up when I heard what these lil piss ants were saying that had no clue who Ozzy was. Their parents should be beaten, publicly. Lol. My granddaughters are 7 and 5. They know who Ozzy is. What are these people teaching their children?


    @Michele Walburn bro that response is awful. That was way more cringy than parents with bad musical taste.

  63. Angel Hernandez

    Blizzard Of Ozz and Back In Black the best albums of 1980.

  64. Misfit 1973

    Ozzy: A fucking piano solo on a Ozzy Osbourne record!!! Are you Mad???
    Voice in the distance: Cocaine is here!
    Ozzy: Do what you must then... IM COMING!!!!

  65. Kenn Cramer Hanberg

    Ozzy have one of the best surprising solo careers i have seen. Good musical quality both with himself and the band and production. Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins did something like that too. Some made some pretty good records, but got less known, but worth listening to and then some just didn't make it of different reasons

  66. Jody Johnson

    Thanks for a day of agony in school Wich we are learning nothing but I am me looking for a reason now it's heart you could not break

  67. Jody Johnson

    I already know that Ozzy was in a band black Sabbath he the music thought it was music is was my life

  68. nnoneymoney

    I asked Creator from 30 paces in my heart " Stop me from peeping through knothole which was about waist high" 4th. Grade Fremont California 10 yrs. old 1978 -->I saw 3 things "His tree his story history"Wisdom from a knothole can keep some people from groping around in the dark trying to feel ones way through life.But to follow Jesus when the answer is decide for yourself not to be prejudice to get/have 100% love/respect the creator itself can tell not 1 single living soul what I just told you.Or then it would know a reflection of helping you decide.So,looking back in History did we as a society decide for ourselves not to be prejudice or did creator decide for us?©® Dino Sherman 9-13-19

    I'm not high enough to understand what you are saying. Do you know where to find some good weed?

  70. Jimmy

    The greatest guitar EVER bar none! Live ended way to soon!😞

  71. Bartimus Trashwalker

    Fair to say that this song was a prophecy.

    also, I'm gonna leave this here for myself 4:03

    Michele Walburn

    He is a prophet. Well at least I've always believed him to be.

  72. Jeffery Smith

    A perfect combination of classical and heavy titanium.

  73. Scotty Jones

    Definitely some of Randy's best work here...his riffs are incredible! Bob Daisley is also a brilliant composer. He put shit together like no one else. He never gets the credit he truly deserves...

  74. One Way Road

    Greetings from Turkey.Beatiful voice.

  75. Christopher Pooler

    Jet Records albums are the best. I have both Blizzard and Diary. Too bad this is Epic Records

    The Blizzard of Ozz band🤘🏻

  76. Melvin the Mop Boy

    4:44 is what you came for...

  77. mo_236 _6

    Legend🔥 RIP RANDY

  78. Lil*Rip

    RIP to all the weed I smoked to this album in the 80's. 🤪👌

    Michele Walburn

    Man wouldn't it be great to have some of that back? If I had a nickel for every time I sat in my room high as a kite listening to this album until my idiot sister broke my album. OMG. I have never wanted to kill someone so badly in my entire life.

  79. Saxoph0ne

    Greta Thunberg Anthem lol

  82. mark palavos3

    Imagine how much better this song would be if Iommi was on guitar instead of Rhoads.

    Michele Walburn

    You're kidding right? Sarcasm doesn't translate well via text.

  83. ShinJitsu Shinobi

    "There's nothing new under the Sun."

  84. Robert Sanderson

    As on the album - straight into Steal Away after.
    Musical magic at it's ever best !

  85. Phillip Ortega

    This song is for everyone to hear .
    People think Ozzy worships the devil but if you listen to the lyrics you come the conclusion that he doesn't.

  86. dmartinezguitarart

    hehehe WHO amongst the "new" stars can even come close to this?

  87. andrew mason

    most relevent now,,she is angry,,

    Michele Walburn

    Yes she is. I have young granddaughters and I worry about what they're going to have to face because of the greed and corruption of so many generations

  88. Estefan Guerrero

    Listening to this next to Randy Rhoads Grave. :) jamming for him

  89. Richard

    Doomy guitar bits are ok,but ,as a Sabbath fan ,I was disappointed by this when it came out.

  90. CellophaneJoe e

    Rip dad

  91. Rufat Piriyev

    That piano part is just awesome, also further Randy's guitar solo is masterpiece. Ozzy is not the best voice in the world but he has definitely had an ability to find talents.

  92. vampiresatan623

    This song’s filled with revelations of the afterlife and of the parallel universe that co-exists with ours...

  95. Sharks Fan

    I have no idea how anyone could put a thumbs down ozzy is amazing and the two times I’ve seen him he was an amazing

  96. Michael Patske

    ....please forgive them for they know not what they do.....PLEASE LET MY MUMSIE LIVE!!!

  97. Sommer Owens

    I always love to think this song is about climate change/global warming/pollution whenever he sings the chorus and sings "oh, let my mother live", and when he sings, "Mother please forgive them, for they know not what they do, looking back in history's books, it seems it's nothing new", I love to think it's about how the weather is getting heavier, like with the increase of hazardous storms (hurricanes, tornados, etc.), and that mother nature is trying to show what us humans are causing to her. (I know this may not be true, but that's what I like to think.)
