Ozzy Osbourne Crazy Train Lyrics

Intro

All aboard! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Ay (ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay)

Verse 1

Crazy, but that’s how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it’s not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Pre-Chorus

Mental wounds not healing
Life’s a bitter shame

Chorus

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

Interlude

Let’s go

Verse 2

I’ve listened to preachers
I’ve listened to fools
I’ve watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it, and you live the role

Pre-Chorus

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane

Chorus

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
The Twelve Days of Christmas
Christmas Songs

Bridge

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words, yeah, yeah!

Verse 3

Heirs of a cold war
That’s what we’ve become
Inheriting troubles, I’m mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I’m living with something that just isn’t fair

Pre-Chorus

Mental wounds not healing
Who and what’s to blame?

Chorus

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

Outro

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
The ledge, ha-ha, the edge.
