cRaZie$

cRaZie$ is the fourth track on I Fight Dragons' debut album KABOOM!. The song was written by lead singer Brian Mazzaferri before the forming of I Fight Dragons as a slow solo acoustic ballad without the stylized name. The song was eventually reworked as the electric song played by the band today.

Kickstarter Versions
There were two alternate versions of the track released as part of the rewards for the Project Atma Kickstarter. The first version was Brian's original acoustic demo, with the second being a cover by the band's lead guitarist Packy Lundholm as a part of the I Fight Dragons & Friends digital album that was given to backers. Packy's version has a more island feel, featuring bongos, slide guitar, and light, upbeat rhythm guitar strums in the background.

Lyrics
In the darkness, I can feel it coming over me
Slowly 

I resist it, but my self defense is low right now
I'm breaking down

Whoa-oh-oh
There's a body on the floor
And the crazies, the crazies
are coming to life
Whoa-oh-oh
I can't take it anymore
'Cause they're crazy, they're crazy
But maybe they're right

All the prophets, all the presidents
And all the thieves: crazies
All the ashes, I can feel them falling down like leaves
Cover me

Maybe if I open my eyes I'll see them
Maybe if lose my disguise I'll be them

Whoa-oh-oh
There's a body on the floor
And the crazies, the crazies
are coming to life
Whoa-oh-oh
I can't take it anymore
'Cause they're crazy, they're crazy
But maybe they're right

Now it seems that there's nobody left
And my dreams are beating me to death
But I won't be alone if I can take them back

Whoa-oh-oh
There's a body on the floor
And the crazies, the crazies
Are coming to life
Whoa-oh-oh
I can't take it anymore
'Cause they're crazy, they're crazy
But maybe they're right

Whoa-oh-oh
Shut the windows and the doors
'Cause they're crazy, they're crazy
But maybe they're right
Whoa-oh-oh
They're coming to life
Whoa-oh-oh
Maybe they're right
Whoa-oh-oh
They're coming to life
Whoa-oh-oh
Maybe they're right
