What is the "Ironman" songs meaning to the OT?


With the movie out, I'm hearing the song played a lot. The popular belief is that its about a time traveler that sees the end of the world and gets turned into iron on his way back to warn everybody and nobody takes him serious.

I personaly think its either about Jesus or the Industrial Revolution.

the lyrics:

I am iron man
Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
We'll just pass him there
Why should we even care?

He was turned to steel
In the great magnetic field
Where he traveled time
For the future of mankind

Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance
That he will soon unfold

Now the time is here
For Iron Man to spread fear
Vengeance from the grave
Kills the people he once saved

Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge

Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron Man lives again!

Ozzy was probably on mult. drugs when he wrote that song. He probably does not even know what it means.

re: What is the "Ironman" songs meaning to the OT?


It's really based on an ultra racist song by some people from Boston. It used to be called "Iron Caps" (They call cops, "caps")

Originally it went:

Your mom's name is Jack
And she just called the caps
One cap has arrived
He is black and he speaks jive
That cap's name is Reese
On his head, he has some grease
Reese fell in the grass
And he cut up his black ass

and so on......

It's about Darth Vader. Everyone knows that if you take enough LSD, you can travel through time to 1977 and back.

The fact that he got that many words to rhyme is a shocker in itself.

I read recently that Robert Plant doesn't really have a good understanding of the meaning of Stairway to Heaven. If true, then good luck with Sabbath!
