Race, The


The Race is harder than arithmetic

And some'll say it can't be won

And it gets harder when your shoes are slick

But I had set my mind to run


And it was harder than I bargained for

With broken dreams at every turn

But I had heart enough to almost make it through

And a lesson yet to learn


I slipped and fell before the finish line

just when it seemed I couldn't lose

I can fall anytime you want me to

You are the shit beneath my shoes
