This is a story of a
Roller coaster child
In the city living
Where there once was wild (wild)
I'm not the enemy
Not defending thee
The place where they're sending me
Is such a long way down, down, down

You know you turn the other way
In a one way town
Put your eye to the sky
Plant your feet into the ground
What's the word
Bright as the sun in your eyes
You left a tear in the dust
But you never said goodbye

You say that you're quitting
But you're still gonna do it
Long song skipping on
The record in your head (head)
You say that you're leaving
But you're walking in circles
Running from a memory
That you wanna forget

You know you look the other way
In a one way town
Put your eye to the sky
Plant your feet into the ground
We'll find a world
A place where the light never dies
You left a tear in the dust
But you never said goodbye

And it's a story of a
Roller coaster town
Well you can touch the top of the sky
But then you're gonna come down, down

Oo, you try to run away
In a one way town
Put your eye to the sky
Plant your feet into the ground
You found a world
A place where the light never dies
You left a tear in the dust
But you never said goodbye

Cause we're the other way
In a one way town
You left a tear in the dust
But you never settled down
Another world
Bright as the sun in your eyes
You left a tear in the dust
Run away, goodbye
