Written By: The Land Speed Record

Got to beat the daily grind
Better get up now step up to the line
It’s a must to win this race
Beat the clock gone far too late
Building up tearing down
Falling in burning out

Set us up and knock us down
We fall like dominos
Standing in one line

On our way to beat the odds
Hear the calling that comes from the Gods
Gotta find better way
Take this spoon use it for a spade
Doing with or with out
Standing up being shot down

We set ‘em up and knock ‘em down
Years fall like dominos
Along a lonely life

Why play this games why play this games
See you setting ‘em up again
What does it mean what does it matter
Drawing crosses through my face
I sit aside I count the time
I see you falling down
