"As they speed through the finish, the flags go down.
The fans get up...and they get out of town.
The arena is empty...
Except for one man,
As fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
And long ago somebody left with the cup
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns
And thinking of someone for whom
He's Going The Distance. "
- Cake, 1997
