Black Sabbath MEGALOMANIA Lyrics

Last updated: 08/25/2013 06:39:42 AM

I hide myself inside the shadows of shame
The silent symphonies were playing their game
My body echoed to the dreams of my soul
inside is something that I could not control

Where can I run to now?
The joke is on me
No sympathizing god exempts sanity, yeah
Why don't you just get out of my life, yeah?
Why don't you just get out of my life now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone, yeah?

Obsessed with fantasy, possessed with my schemes
I mixed reality with pseudogod dreams
The ghost of violence was something I've seen
I sold my soul to be the human obscene

How could this poison be
The dream of my soul?
How did my fantasies take complete control, yeah?
Why don't you just get out of my life, yeah?
Why don't you just get out of my life now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone now?
Why doesn't everybody leave me alone, yeah?

Well I feel something's taken me I don't know where
It's like a trip inside a separate mind
The ghost of tomorrow from my favorite dream
Is telling me to leave it all behind
Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
Got to get to happiness, want no more of sorrow

How I lied, went to hide
How I tried to get away from you now
Am I right if I fight?
That I might just get away from you now
Sting me!

Well I feel something's giving me the chance to RETURN
It's giving me the chance of saving my soul
Pictures of demigod are fading away
I'm going backwards but I'm in control
Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
Getting back to sanity, from the depths of sorrow

Was it wise to disguise
How I tried to get away from you now
Is there a way that I could pay
Or is it true I have to stay with you now?

How I lied, had to hide
How I tried to get away from you now
Am I right if I fight?
That I might just get away from you now
Suck me!

I feel it's manic schizophrenia that's messing me up
I've chased my soul through the fires of hell
Peace of mind eluded me, but now it's all mine
I set the trap, but it was me who fell
Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
Now I've found my happiness, from the depths of sorrow

No more lies, I got wise
I despise the way I worshipped you yeah
Now I'm free, can't you see
And now instead I won't be led by you now

A good song for overcoming almost any trouble | Reviewer: John | 8/25/13

The great thing about this song is that while it is most likely directly referring to drug or alcohol addiction, it can work for almost any sort of addiction or even trouble, all the way down to the romantic heartbreak. The lyrics are so poignantly universal and yet specific and piercing that there is almost no other song in my experience that is as well suited as Megalomania is to help tide depression in any from or from any cause.

greatest speeding song!!! | Reviewer: P$yk0M@n | 7/31/10

All of you guys are right!this song is one of the best ive heard amongst others that are also underated such as psycho man,dirty woman,a national acrobat.These songs make me want to go fast and haul as when im out on mission(iraq)or on the I-5 going to SR-16...great songs!!!I love all of Ozzy's music!!

johnny you're an idiot! | Reviewer: Andrew L. | 10/13/09

This song is about drug induced madness and addiction.(Probably cocaine) A popular theme with Ozzy.
I find something new every time I listen. Some of the most cerebral rock and roll ever produced. Not really satanic but they'll take the publicity. You think Ozzy is a shuffling old fool? Go see his show and you just might be surprised. These are the elder statesmen of hard rock and metal. Pioneers and innovators. Sabotage is the heaviest of the first phase and some damn good rock tunes by any measure.

SABBATH GOOOOODS OF METAL | Reviewer: johnny | 8/2/09

to be honest i bought this album just for symptom of the universe n' the first time i heard the complete album i hated it, but some moths after i heard it again n' FUCK! i realized it's one of sabbaths greatest works... but, what about the meaning of the song??? it's about love... about a relationship in wich the one who sings was fucking obsessed with the other one, but their relationship was way to painful for the singing one, but as he it's so obsessed/in love with the other one he just can't get away from it although it tries... until one day he finally gets free from it... i remember once when ozzy said that if you're making heavy metal not only the music has to be havy, also the lyrics, n' it doesn't matter if it's a lve song, you have to get love to that pito of heaviness.... this song is the perfect example

Black Sabbath your awesome | Reviewer: Leo | 10/31/07

ok megalomania is the best sabbath song its the only song i listen it is the most underrated song but i thinks its the best its retarded that its not on the greatest hits album but its awesome how it starts slow then the tempo raises and the lyrics keep going and BLACK SABBATH IS THE GREATEST HEAVY METAL BAND WHO EVER LIVED(thanks to ozzy osbourne,toni iommi,geezer butler and bill ward)!!!!!!!!!!

Sabbath's best song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/27/06

Maybe the most underrated of Sabbath's songs. The riff starting the second half is the best driving fast tune there is. I would love to hear this just once on a radio.

This one hell of a song | Reviewer: Andy Dog | 6/8/05

I've been listening to this song since I bought the album in 1976. I still listen to it as if I just heard it for the first time. Talk about quality rock n' roll man.

Shuck Ma | Reviewer: Robabobert | 6/1/05
