Well, let's also keep in mind that around the time of Speak/Talk Of The Devil, Ozzy was seemingly incapable of letting his anger go. The Ozzy vs. Sabbath thing was out of control. And even though he was having so much success on his own, it seemed like he spent as much time regretting how things ended with Sabbath as focusing on his own career. So he overcompensated and even lied. I can still remember a full page ad for Speak Of The Devil in Circus or Cream or whatever advertising that now you could hear live versions of the Black Sabbath songs Ozzy "wrote" and sang. And I remember thinking, wtf? And even before that album he was saying some crap in the press about writing Sabbath music and lyrics that eventually caused Dio to become livid and totally blast him for being a liar. This period was a bad time for Ozzy, IMO. Ironically, he was doing very well commercially, but I think he was out of his mind on drugs and booze, filled with resentment and pissed that Black Sabbath with Dio were being accepted. But at the same time, he set things straight later, and as such that period should be over so we can look at what actually transpired. Geezer has stated that he told Ozzy of the experience he had and Ozzy wrote the lyrics to "Black Sabbath". I think this should be accepted as fact. I believe we also know that Ozzy wrote lyrics to "Who Are You?", "Am I Going Insane?", "The Writ" and "Junior's Eyes". And there may be more. So Geezer did write 95% of the lyrics, but I think you've overstated the matter a little. In addition, Geezer was interested in the occult and black magic sometime around I would think maybe early 1969. He was dabbling in this stuff and the experience that foretold the song "Black Sabbath" scared the daylights out of him. So yes, it is a song with a reverence for God, but it came out of him having not realizing that this stuff was not to be taken lightly. He was not a "practicing Catholic" at the time of this experience or considering "being a priest". He was raised as a strict Catholic and there may have been a time when he was considering a future as a priest, but it was not at the time of the experience that conceived the story of the song.
