All aboard! Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaa!

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

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

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

Let's Go!

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

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
Yeah

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 and what's to blame
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

    I believe the song is about the trials and tribulations of hard drug use and addiction. Ozzy liked his drugs and would do pretty much anything. I am sure during his career he probably tried to clean his use up but would always fall of the wagon. In the song the rails represent a straight and clean way of living like normal society but going off the rails on a crazy train represents a drug induced state of mind.

    It's about all the haters in the world, all the teens dropping out of school, the media telling us who we should vote for, all the stressors and ptsds and other mental disorders now that we have to deal and live with. All because of how the world is. It's crazy and it's not going to get better! Life is a crazy train and we're all riding the rails! It's going to be a long ride too!

    This song has withstood being completely over played. Such strong stuff, I would like to hear more of his songs are hitting the air waves though. Diary of a madman, bark at the moon, no more tears, road to nowhere, mr crowley. These are all songs that the ozzy fan knows but most average people don't. Such a shame! Randy rhoads was a amazingly talented guitarist, deserving of more respect on the radio and in other forums.

    I think it's about the cold war. I think it's just what Xxdark angel mattxx said: I think it says that a lot of people these days fight and start anarci and either just kill for fun but it also means that we shoudent do these thing we shoud help each other and love one a nother and if ur the typ of person who dos all thos things join the milatary at least there you help kill people who want to destyor our cuntry.
