Ozzy Discusses Terrorist Themes on '13'
Ozzy Osbourne has said - or rather, mumbled - that the Black Sabbath single "God Is Dead?" is about terrorist attacks, but has an optimistic finale that confirms his faith.

Loudwire fired in a question at a rowdy press conference at New York City Town Hall to ask if God's existence is something Ozzy ponders every day:

"I was in a doctor's replied room and [I saw] a magazine which said, 'God Is Dead,'" said Ozzy, "and I thought, 'F--king hell, they flew planes into the World Trade Center and they're always blowing themselves up in market places, killing innocent people in the name of their god.' If you listen to the twist at the end of the song, it says, 'I don't believe that God is dead.' Geezer [Butler] said he wrote [the lyrics] about someone who is in search for the fact if God is still there or he's not, you know?"

When asked if the character in the song is asking for reception at the end, Ozzy is rather more flippant, saying: "I dunno. Whatever you want to make of it."

Watch the brief interview with a rather confusing Ozzy here:
