Ozzy Osbourne – No More Tears (Song Meaning)

In the 2002 remaster booklet for the No More Tears album, Osbourne stated that the song was about a serial killer. The video features a woman in distress locked up in a room and chained to a chair as she drowns in her own tears.

The song was redone by guitarist Zakk Wylde as a bonus track on the second reissue of the Black Label Society album Sonic Brew as well as on its own promotional E.P. called the No More Tears Sampler.

A shorter edited version of this song was released to some radio stations, and can be heard on the 1997 compilation album The Ozzman Cometh. The full-length version appears on The Essential Ozzy Osbourne.

The music video was shot to accommodate both the album version and the edited version of the song. Some channels played the full-length video, and others played the shortened version.

This song also is played in the Adam Sandler movie Little Nicky. In the final battle scene where Osbourne appears, “No More Tears” can be heard being played in the background.

Osbourne considers this song to be “a gift from God”, as stated in the Prince of Darkness liner notes.
