Sabbath star's ill advised solo sojourn
We join Ozzy Osbourne , metal colossus and ghoulish bon viveur , gazing through the window, wondering whether Mother Earth will survive. That's 'Dreamer', a Beatles-y eco-ballad. On 'No Easy Way Out', there's a mantra-like middle-eight that sounds like Ian Brown. Legends should rarely be let off the leash, and few need tying down so much as Ozzy Osbourne ....

Ozzy Osbourne - Just Say Ozzy: Wikipedia Album Entry
Just Say Ozzy is a live album by Ozzy Osbourne. Released on March 17, 1990 and it was re-issued on August 22, 1995. It contains the track "Shot in the Dark", first recorded in the Jake E. Lee era and is said to be Ozzy's preferred version.
Although the sleeve states this to have been recorded at London's Brixton Academy, the gig never made any of the UK music papers either as a review or as a 'forthcoming event' and the crowd is, plainly, not a British one. Indeed, comparison of the audience noise on this mini-album and from Ozzy's MTV'd show at the Philadelphia Spectrum in 1989 shows it to be one and the same. The music, however, IS different,and it seems that the Philadelphia crowd noise was added to a different gig.
In April 2002, this album was deleted from the Ozzy catalog and is no longer being made. However, like the other discontinued Ozzy albums, it is still available on iTunes.

Generals gathered in their masses
just like witches at black masses
evil minds that plot destruction
sorcerers of death's construction
Won't you listen?
When I first met you, didn't realize
You're comin' home, there's blood on the walls
When Charlie and the family made house calls
If you're alone then watch what you do
'Cause Charlie and the family might get you, yeah
I'm looking for a miracle man
That tells me no lies
I'm looking for a miracle man
Who's not in disguise
Out on the street, I'm stalking the night
I can hear my heavy breathing
Paid for the kill but it doesn't seem right
Something there I can't believe in
Well she's a mean hard woman and she knows what she likes
She is my tattooed rock n roll dancer
I'm under her thumb and when she tells me jump
Oh hi is the only way I can answer
