Schwa Lyrics

Roller Coaster

Lyricist: Dave Katz
Vocalist: Dave Katz
Am I happy, am I sad, am I sane or am I mad?
Can't escape the truth, or the lies, can't wear no big disguise.
Cause I'm a thinking man, I only do the best I can,
Any other creature big or small, would just ignore it all,


Cause up and down and round and round, the roller coaster goes, 
you can take it to the top.
and way back down, up and down and round and round, 
the roller coaster goes, you know
and one day it's gonna stop.
And you only get one ride.

It's mind over matter, only glass hearts can shatter.
You know I'm on the mend, I ain't gonna let this shit happen again.

Gotta keep it together, gonna make myself feel so much better.
I'm gonna take it to another plane, where I can't feel no pain.

Cause up and down and round and round, the roller coaster goes, 
you can take it to the top.
Way back down, up and down and round and round, the roller coaster goes, and one day it's gonna stop.
And you only get one ride.

Have you ever been low, as a bottom feeder goes?
You know life can bring you down.
Have you ever been high, as an albatross flies?
Flying free.

No matter how you feel today, no matter what you do or say,
You're gonna live your ups and downs, good and bad, round and round. 
When things aren't going right, clear your mind and see the light.
Try to reach that pinnacle, don't let yourself get cynical no.


Cause up and down and round and round, the roller coaster goes,
You can take it to the top.
And way back down, up and down and round and round, the roller coaster goes, You can take it to the top.
Way back down, up and down and round and round, the roller coaster goes,
Up and down and round and round the roller coaster goes,
Up and down and round and round the roller coaster goes,
Then one day it's gonna...
