N.I.B. Lyrics

Oh yeah!
Some people say my love cannot be true
please believe me, my love, and I'll show you. I will give you those things you thought unreal. The sun, the moon, the stars all bear my seal

Oh yeah!
Follow me now and you will not...

    Ronnie James Dio said N.I.B. stands for Nativity In Black. If you read the lyrics the song is clearly about Lucifer and his love for presumably a woman who doubts his sincerity. Lucifer does not immediately admit that he is Satan and continues to try to reassure his conquest that he truly loves her. However, Satin cannot truly love anyone but himself and anyone that falls for his deceptions shall be eternally damned. Repent and accept Jesus Christ as your savior and true redeemer!

    Personally I was a person growing up felt unloved. My first album was master of reality because I was moved by the heavy metal guitar drums gave me good feelings however my following of rock music really ended me up on a deadend street. Rock music decieved me into thinking I had found thee answer. Spent or wasted a lot of money purchasing rock albums with no reality attached to it. Its interesting that these people play rock music live in 5 million dollar homes. I would like my money. All I ever got out of it was a temporary good feeling. Fortunately Jesus found me and gave me a future.

    Straight from Ozzy's book: "It's about a relationship in which the guy is the devil. He wants to feel love and yet his evil nature gets the better of him."
