"Dreamer" is the third track from Ozzy Osbourne's album Down to Earth, which was released on October 16, 2001. The single peaked at number 10 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks.[1] The song describes the rockstar's vision of a better world for his children, where they are happy and safe. The song itself is thematically and musically similar to Lennon's "Imagine". In the liner notes to Osbourne's Prince of Darkness box set, Ozzy refers to this song as his "Imagine". Ozzy has named John Lennon many times as his hero. A second video was also produced, featuring highlights from "The Osbournes". The Japanese press of the single also included a slightly different version of the song Dreamer, dubbed on the single "Dreamer (acoustic)" and a previously unreleased song titled "Black Skies"
