Flight of the Rollercoaster is the story of a not so casual rollercoaster ride...

Picking up speed, Coaster’s rising to the top
Only moments again you had protested hate for the ride
Didn’t want to go, but refused to admit your fear
Much to your dismay, you agreed to go one time around
You hesitated; thought something might go wrong

Coaster was following the normal track, getting close to it’s peak
Half afraid, half in awe you look down towards the ground
You quickly look away, wishing you never looked
Repeating to yourself that all it’s only
A casual Roller-Coaster ride – you try not to look afraid,
But inside your heart is pounding like a jackhammer
You wait for the final drop
-Nothing

You hear the usual screams, the normal cries
Wishing that the ride would end
That the torment would stop
-Nothing

Something wrong, this isn’t how the ride is meant to run
Looking to your side, front and back
You’re flying through the air, losing no height
Panicking, you enter a state of shock

You pass over bumper cars, just under the welcome banner
To the left of the Ferris wheel, to right of the Go Karts
Last witnesses recall, a coaster soaring through the air
The screams of the people aboard, a splash, even louder screams
Then silence was born
-Nothing more
