Ozzy himself also spoke about the overall theme of the song.
“It’s about being a patient in a mental hospital”, Osbourne said while premiering the track. “All we do really is self medicate”.
“When they call your name, better run and hide / Tell you you’re insane, you believe their lies / I’m not getting out, no I’m not getting out alive / I’m not getting out, cuz I’m patient number 9”, Osbourne can be heard singing in the chorus. Jeff Beck also delivers a powerful solo.
