Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzmosis: Wikipedia Album Entry
Ozzmosis is an album by British heavy metal musician Ozzy Osbourne. It was originally released on October 23, 1995, through Epic Records.
After Osbourne's supposed retirement for four years, he regrouped with guitarist Zakk Wylde, bassist Mike Inez, drummer Randy Castillo, and producer Michael Wagener to record a comeback album. The record company told Wagener that they want "exactly the same record as No More Tears." After 7 songs were recorded from start to finish, the record company executives, after listening to the tracks (which included future b-sides "Aimee," "Living With The Enemy," and the Prince of Darkness box set version of "See You On The Other Side"), said "now we want it to sound like Soundgarden." The project was then scrapped and later handed off to Soundgarden producer Michael Beinhorn to finish.
Sometime after the sessions with Michael Wagener, Mike Inez and Randy Castillo were replaced with Geezer Butler (who had recently left Black Sabbath after a major falling out with Tony Iommi) and Deen Castronovo.
One song from the album, "My Little Man," was co-written with guitarist Steve Vai for a project Osbourne planned to do with Vai, Bob Daisley, and Castronovo titled "X-Ray." Another song from this collaboration, "Dyin' Day", can be found in instrumental form on Vai's 1996 album, Fire Garden.

Look into the future
Look into my eyes and tell me everything's all right
Tell me, where we're going?
I'm so afraid 'cos I don't know what's going on with my life
Don't you know I love you more than life itself?
Don't you know that you're my pride?
And I would not have you walking through this world
Without me by your side
There is person living in my head
She comes to visit every night in bed
I fight the demon but it just won't fall
The voices in my dungeon starting to call
Have you read the message the writing on the wall?
Could it be the answer, the answer to it all?
What's going down in heaven? I'm playing with your head
Don't believe them when they tell you, you'd be better off dead
Condemned to violence, arrested by pain
Inside the soul lies a man insane
Conceived in anger, addicted to hate
The mutant child of a twisted state
You are my only daughter, I guess I made you twice
You look inside my other, he'll give you bad advice
I will tell you I'm OK, but deep inside I'm afraid
