LYRIC

[Intro]
Gonna build a roller coaster
You can ride it when you're older
Taking off those pretty buildings
In the north and down to main-street

[Verse 1]
And at the top you can see the city
Poking out from the green canopy
Shiny fingers that grasp a leaf and
A sweaty palm calls you down from it

[Verse 2]
And with the clink-clank cars climbing
To the peak on the horizon
You can feel Red River rising
Burning veins of an army dying

[Verse 3]
To the tune of a roller coaster
The beat gets quicker, the water gets thicker
You let that spirit's energy flow all over the ground
The blood of our town

[Verse 4]
So on our rooftops we were sitting
Where water slides into velvet abyss
Beneath the surface pulling down
As relics of the abandoned town

[Verse 5]
And as the winter closes in
The flooded water hardening
And all the children break-in skates
Enjoy our frozen cityscape

[Outro]
Enjoy our frozen cityscape
Enjoy our frozen cityscape
Enjoy our frozen cityscape
Enjoy our frozen cityscape
Enjoy our frozen cityscape

About "Roller Coaster"

“Roller Coaster” was undertaken as a personal challenge by Matt Schellenberg to write a song with only two chords, producing a song where the melody and lyrics were the focus. Matt mentions this in the track-by-track walk-through of the album Let’s All March Back Into The Sea.
