Somewhere life is good, and things go as they should
It's hard to find, but that's alright yeah
Searching for the way, push harder everyday
It's deep inside, that shining light yeah
But I'm scarred, by barriers placed in my path
I'm scathed

This ride that takes me through life
Leads me into darkness but emerges into light
No one can ever slow me down
I'll stay unbound

Sometimes when we're young, and always on the run
It gets so dark and I know that place yeah
So don't be too concerned, you've got a lot to learn
Well so do I and we've got plenty of time yeah
Don't fall off the track yet with so many races to go
Hold on

This ride that takes me through life
Leads me into darkness but emerges into light
No one can ever slow me down
I'll stay unbound

Some live so wrong, with what we do is each his own
But living in fear, endless shame for countless years
I never lived in fear I knew I'd die another day
I never viewed my life as something... slipping away

Some live so wrong, with what we do is each his own
But living in fear, endless shame for countless years
I never lived in fear I knew I'd die another day
I never viewed my life as something... slipping away

There's nothing here to take for granted
With each breath that we take
The hands of time strip youth from our bodies,
And we fade,
Memories remain,
As time goes on

There's nothing here to take for granted
With each breath that we take
The hands of time strip youth from our bodies,
And we fade,
Memories remain,
As time goes on

    Xmegansevenfold-i doubt it. That may have been the original name of the song, but it's more about how our lives are tumultous and somewhat like a rollercoaster, thus the term "the wild ride" and the phrase "this ride that takes me through life, leads me into darkness but emerges into light"

    It's true, it's on the dvd that comes with the cd, it was written as deargod12 writes, but they were like "what does this make you think of?" and they said "It's like going on a magic carpet ride, on acid, through disney land!" So they named it disney land acid trip, but then changed it.

    Yeah deargod12 is right. It was originally gonna be called something along the lines of "acid at Disneyland" or something like that, but it's really about life and how life is like a rollercoaster, it has it's ups, it has it's downs. But it's life and you shouldn't waste it cuz it goes by fast.

    "this ride, that takes me through life, leads me into darkness but emerges into light"

    Saying how we have tough times. But it always works out in the end if you fight through it and don't give up.

    Which brings us to the line, "don't fall off the track yet, with so many races to go...HOLD ON!"
