"This Rollercoaster Ride" as written by and Colin Meloy....
These slick black suits and ties
Will open up your eyes.
It's not the life you pictured
in your head

So sit back
take your time,
It's slipping on the rise.
If it happened once,
It'll happen once again.

And they're all ready to tell you lies.
And they're all ready to tell you lies.
So don't forget your ticket stub to ride,
This rollercoaster ride.

He who says, "Don't second guess."
Is skipping all the rails
And ripping out the stitches
Of your life.

The barkers call the tolling bell
To strip your body bare
And whip you within inches
Of your life

And they're all ready to tell you lies.
And they're all ready to tell you lies.
So don't forget your ticket stub to ride,
This rollercoaster ride.

Thread bare, bones and all,
Captain's never sleeping
They shake you to make sure
You're awake.

Singin' "Toss that body overboard,
Let's have another round."
You've had plenty more than
You can take.

And they're all ready to tell you lies.
And they're all ready to tell you lies.
So don't forget your ticket stub to ride,
This rollercoaster ride.
This rollercoaster ride.
This rollercoaster ride.
This rollercoaster ride.
