lyrics

seemingly i couldn't help myself from steering off the right track
i was always on the other side of sanity when you found out

weary from a reality that made me lead a stranger's life
i was only trying to find out about what could not be found

and it's steering me
well away from here
vive decouple
go and don't follow me

oh
how can you say you believe that i'm off the rails
i'm heading straight my way
i want a seat in the vip when i'm off the rails
i'm just waiting for the right train

i can't believe when you say that i'm off the rails
when i don't wanna be on your train
on a beat with the freaks when i'm off the rails
all derailed and deranged

seemingly i always had a natural attraction to disaster
i was only trying to negotiate over the terms of the details

head on to collision course (oh) with a fake reality
far away from a destiny i could never see

and it's staring me
in the face to see
vive la folie
go, don't follow me

oh
how can you say you believe that i'm off the rails
i'm heading straight my way
i want a seat in the vip when i'm off the rails
i'm just waiting for the right train

i can't believe when you say that i'm off the rails
when i don't wanna be on your train
on a beat with the freaks when i'm off the rails
all derailed and deranged

how can you say you believe that i'm off the rails
i'm heading straight my way
i want a seat in the vip when i'm off the rails
i'm just waiting for the right train

i can't believe when you say that i'm off the rails
when i don't wanna be on your train
on a beat with the freaks when i'm off the rails
all derailed and deranged
