The Lyrics

This song is about drivers who have subpar runs every now and then and don't usually contend for the win in each and every NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
Where was the "free pass" I needed the most?
I ran into the wall and the magic was lost
My crew chief told me my blue skies quickly turned gray
I also complained that the handling went away
And I shouldn't be carrying on
I went to pit road but I hit a new low
I'm faking a good stop but Kyle's stealing the show
I say that my car won't run the right line
I finish worse than 30th every time
But I shouldn't be carrying on
I had a bad race, I went a lap down
Couldn't do anything to turn it around
I think I don't know
I don't want to lie
If I screw up again, I might lose my ride
I had a bad race
ESPN cameras don't lie
I'm dropping back down, but now I don't mind
I had a bad race
I had a bad race
Well, I want things to go my way
I might finally win a race someday
And I really shouldn't be carrying on
I had a bad race
I went 10 laps down
I couldn't do anything to turn it around
I said I didn't know
'Cause I just don't lie
If I screw up again, I just might lose my ride
I had a bad race
ESPN's cameras don't lie
The 22 lapped me again, but I really don't mind
I had a bad race
(Allen Bestwick: It looks like another bad day for Joseph Conciatori in the 94 car).
Sometimes my car doesn't handle really well
And most of the time, something goes wrong
I might not finish the race, but I know
But I'm trying to become, well, really strong
And I'm not wrong
(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Where was the "free pass" I needed the most?
Oh you and I
I ran into the wall and the magic was lost
I had a bad race
I'm 20 laps down
I can't do anything to turn it around
I really don't know
I don't want to lie
If I screw up again, I might lose my ride
I had a bad race
I know what it feels like
And I hope I do much better next time
I had a bad race
I had a bad race
I had a bad race
I had a bad race
I had a bad race
I had a bad race
