Crazy Train

Crazy Train

Released 2009


Covering Ozzy's "Crazy Train" was a little troubling for me. I've tried not to rework material other artists have, in this case Pat Boone's incredible version. In the end, I decided that it's really my own and all of us can co-exist harmoniously. Well, maybe harmoniously isn't exactly the right word...

Behind the Scenes

Mooseboy's Lyrics (samples in red)
Original Lyrics
(You're crazy.
You know, those guys in there think I'm crazy!
This is crazy
Crazy
Crazy
Ah ha ha ha, I gotta be crazy I'm
Crazy insane?
(random yodeling)
Ain't nobody gonna listen to music like this
Sounds crazy horrible? It was fun!
You want crazy?
Oh man, this is absolute crazy, I mean this is borderline reckless
I'm on a pilgrimage to see a moose!
Well, I'll show you crazy
Praise Marty Moose!)

Crazy, but thats how it goes
Millions of people they're living as foes
Maybe, its not to late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing
Lifes a bitter shame
I'm going off of the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off of the rails on a crazy train

Crazy
(You're crazy!
Crazy, crazy, crazy...)

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 have the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I'm going off of the rails on a crazy train
That's right, I'm going off of the rails on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words
Yeh-eh-ah

(No tv, no beer, make Homer something-something.
Go crazy?
Don't mind if I do!
He's crazy! They're all crazy! Better not mess with me, though. Come on, come on, put 'em up, come on!
Emily Dickinson lived alone, and she wrote
some of the most beautiful poetry the world has ever known...then went crazy as a loon.)

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

Mental wounds not healing
Who's and what's to blame
I'm going off of the rails on a crazy train
We're all going off of the rails on a crazy train

(Every night we're doing a gig, you get all these crazy people that come and throw this, this junk on stage. I thought it was one of these rubber bats. I picked it up, it was a real bat!
Was it alive?
Well, it was until I bit...the head off it, you know...)
Crazy, but thats how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe its not to late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing
Lifes a bitter shame
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

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 have the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words
Yeh-h

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

Mental wounds not healing
Who and whats to blame
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
