"Rollercoaster" as written by John Richard Large, Thomas John Livemore, Tim Middleton and Paul Ward....
You're like a roller coaster
You got heavy metal wings
You could make a dead man scream
You're like a roller coaster

Roller coaster, we was the best of times
Roller coaster, we was the worst of times too
Because you lift me up so high high high
It's the most unbelievable ride

You're like a roller coaster
You give me heavy metal dreams
You can make a dead man scream
You're like a roller coaster

Roller coaster, can't find my friends on the ground
Just lift me up and send me spiraling down
Because you lift me up so high high high
It's the most unbelievable ride

You're like a roller coaster
Heavy metal wings
Make a dead man scream
Roller coaster
Roller coaster
Roller coaster

    General CommentVery cool song, probably about drugs. His voice is great on this one. I like when he sings the line :It's the most unbelieveable ride...: and it kind of ends in a little sad note, and it feels like he's about to say something sad, but then it just comes back up again to the chorus.

    General CommentI've always thought of it as being a song about a woman who was exceptionally good sexually.
    Especially with the "make a dead man scream" line. The woman is so intense in bed, that she could do that. As well, it's the most 'unbelievable ride' line could support that, but that was just my first impression.

    General Commentwell, maybe not petitchou...sure, the man/woman relationship is is an obvious choice, but isn't it equally plausible that these lyrics come from the mouth of a down-and-out kinda guy, rolling around the dirty floor, clutching a bottle of alcohol/needle/prescription of pills/pouch of cocaine? Really, it could be interpreted in any number of ways, whatever suits your fancy.

    General CommentWhy does every song secretly have to be about drugs or sex?

    General CommentYou just say that cause you're on drugs. Or sex. One or the other.

    General CommentDrugs? Sex? In theory it could be about an amusement park ride.

    Great song, and no matter how you interpret its topic, it has the same mood and message.
