Diggin' Me Down
Ozzy Osbourne Lyrics


You're saving the saved,
Men and women enslaved,
Propagating the messiah conception

The rich getting richer,
Paint you into the picture,
Give the poor immaculate deception

Where are you, Father?
Why don't you save us?
The fallen are dying alone

How can you shut off their cries?
Ignore a new genocide?

So come on, Jesus,
We're all here waiting just for you

How long must we keep on waiting?
The faithful and blind are keepin' me, keepin' me down

How long? 'Cause my faith is breaking,
The pure and divine are diggin' me, diggin' me down

Do you live in the light
Or in the dead of the night?
Sanctimonious promises broken

Hypocritical sin,
Dying slowly within,
Is the sacred truth forever unspoken?

Life ever after,
Bohemian rapture,
Beware the dark side of the Son

You're just a self-made messiah,
Selling brimstone and fire

So come on, Jesus,
Don't keep us waiting just for you

How long must we keep on waiting?
The faithful and blind are bringin' me, bringin' me down

How long? 'Cause my faith is breaking,
The pure and divine are diggin' me, diggin' me down

[Guitar Solo]

How will I know you, Mr. Jesus Christ?
Have you already been here once or twice?

The son of man are obsolete facade,
How will I know that you're the son of God?
Yeah

Really relatable in 2020. Ozzy was not Fucking around when he wrote this one.

Hey, dude! I thank you so very much for putting the lyrics here. I have bought two different versions of the album Scream and there ain't no lyrics in none of them unfortunetely.

Gus G. is massively underrated. Why he doesn't get talked-about more is beyond me.

gerry Orangefan

Check out firewind and his solo albums. Damn good player.

Brandon Little

read the credits, gus didnt even get to write anything on this album other than the leads...hes actually pretty good in firewind

Ronald Lucas

Most melodic guitarist Ozzy have ever worked since RR

@theh1n1shot Whether he's "good" is only subjective to a degree and his continued success shows that overall he is considered good, not just by me.

But it can't be helped if you don't enjoy it. Just don't drag everyone else down complaining about it and there won't be a problem.
