The Battle Royale – Race Car
from Wake Up, Thunderbabe, 2007

Download The Battle Royale – Race Car mp3 at RCRD LBL (while available).

Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. Rewind, rewind, rewind. AFOM and I, with our shared obsession for lyrics and analysis, have devised the following words for this song. They weren’t posted anywhere else, so we couldn’t leave it alone. No, no, oh, no.
UPDATE: Mark Ritsema (synth, vocals) responded to my request to fill in the blanks. So here they are, revised. He said I was “pretty close!”. I’ll take that as a compliment. John Pelant sings lead vocals on this particular song.

The Battle Royale – Race Car Lyrics
No, oh, oh.
Why don’t you leave it alone?
Oh, oh, oh.
Who are you to get known?
When will you be done?
Did you forget where you came from?
I don’t wanna feel,
what you feel.

No, no, oh, no.
No, no, oh, no.

Back on the high speed, don’t you wanna meet me?
I don’t think they’d ever see.
Look what you’ve done to me.
Now, who can I trust?
After all, you got the best of us.
The kids are doing old things.
There must be bells inside their heads that ring.
Even though it’s hard to.
Oh it’s hard to say right now.

In the late night.
In the late night (we’ve lost the way how)?

Don’t you wanna know oh oh?
I couldn’t ever show
you me


Don’t stay.
Not tonight.

I’ll forget it, you’ll forget it.
I don’t wanna know.
I don’t wanna know.
I’ll forget it, you’ll forget it.
I don’t wanna know.
I don’t wanna know.
I’ll forget what you said.
Come back to us
if you can

I’ll forget what you said

No, no, uh-oh, no.
No, no, uh-oh, no.

Maybe you (can follow)?, maybe you can call us.
I don’t think you’ll ever know, the pain were goin through.

If you don’t already own it, buy The Battle Royale – Wake Up, Thunderbabe here (…and you can graciously thank the band later).
