Cross Country: The Song

On your marks
Get set

Get out
Get out, or get buried
Eyes up
Have your wits about you
There's elbows flying, blood gushing from your knee

I can't shoot no basketball
I can't make no team at all
I can't help if running away comes so natural

Two minutes and some number I can't ever really hear
Truth be told, I miss the sounds
Of even my own mother's cheers

The only words that come through clear
Coach screaming "Get your ass in gear!"

And the middle miles
Seem to float on by
Til that time you decide
On fight or flight
And laugh when you realize
They're really the same thing, right?

I can't punt or pass worth a lick
Catch me on the right day I've got one helluva kick
Come to my home course I'll show ya first hand kid
