lyrics

Oh, your ego is a monster,
it follows us around like a stalker
but we don't give a damn about this empty boaster,
my friends are I are headed for the rollercoasters.

Every girl I've met has known this monster,
strangers, bosses, boyfriends, fathers,
but the thing about this girl is you will never own her,
she's coming with me, we're going on a rollercoaster.

It shoots us up quick, twists, and then we're among the stars,
do not be afraid my friend to throw your arms up
cause we got we he don't, babe we got love.

I wonder if it's true that privilege makes a monster,
hating all the people you have to watch suffer
then you've got the gall to claim that you are most hurt
well you can't gaslight us when we're on a rollercoaster.

Anything that he can get away with he will,
he's jamming all these camels through the eye of a needle,
at the top of his hotel heaven ain't no closer
but I'm convinced I found it on the rollercoaster.

It shoots us up quick, twists, and then we're among the stars,
do not be afraid my love to throw up your arms because
cause we got we he don't, babe we got love.

At the end of the day when you lie down all you've got is who you are
and all of us will be staring at you, we'll be staring at you from the dark
but that ain't all that true,
we got something better to it.

It shoots us up quick, twists and then we're in the blue sky
all my friends look beautiful, they look beautiful when they cry.
Do you cry cause we got what you don't and we might be right?
