Makin' the scene 
I really mean
You could be there with me
And make believe
I'll find a place for us
To be alone
Here in the depth of our emotion
Don't you know, baby

Get set, everybody
We're on our way
To meet you
Too late, everybody
We're on our way
To nowhere
And I will be there

Kick out your seat
Let's elevate
Hold on to what you know
Is gonna break
A roller coaster ride
Inside your mind
Is what you need to terrify you
Don't you know, baby


Never gets you too far
Never gets you too far now
If you climb aboard there is nothing to it
If you concentrate we will see you through it
Don't forget at the end of the ride
You'll be hypnotized by the sound, it's too late


If you want me to
