"Hey, It's Your Funeral Mama" as written by and Dallas/ingelevics Green....
The sky is blue, the grass is brown
My head is buried inside this helmet
And the ever present threat of parasites
So take my hand, let's get these motors running!

So you drive red (you drive red)
And I'll drive black (I'll drive black)
(We'll see who's machine was most recently serviced)
We'll slit these rows of Goodyear's like a knife

[Repeat: x5]
We don't fear
These machines

I got the scoop, I got the scoop
And it doesn't look so good, so good for you

So you drive red (you drive red)
And I'll drive black (I'll drive black)
(We'll see who's machine was most recently serviced)
We'll slit these rows of Goodyear's like a knife
Like a knife, like a knife, yeah
We'll slit these rows of Goodyear's like a knife

So you drive red (you drive red)
And I'll drive black (I'll drive black)
(We'll see who's machine was most recently serviced)
We'll slit these rows of Goodyear's like a knife.

    General CommentMaybe its about running away from something ?

    "And the ever present threat of parasites
    So take my hand, let's get these motors running!"

    A couple running away together, one turning around and saying 'theres always going to be a threat of stuff ruining us here (parasites) so lets get out of here and be together peacfully ?"
    Again this could just be me talking from personal experience again, my parents tend to do their best to drive a wedge between me and my partener. but maybe its a similar situation all they wanna do is be together and be happy without people trying to wreck them so they decide to just run and get away from it.

    "We don't fear [5x]
    These machines"
    mayeb this is just them saying that they aren't afraid of running away and they're not afraid of the unknown that stands before them as they leave?

    "I got the scoop, I got the scoop
    And it doesn't look so good, so good for you"
    Up until now it has just been one persuading the other to leave and now one has found out that if they stay one of them is gonna have a tough time so lets just go

    Other bits of the song are just them saying lets get away and do it fast, they're taking a really cheerful outlook on the situation and they're excited at the prospect of running away

    Just an idea as usual ^_^

    General CommentThis is more of a fun song....anything else and you're reading WAY too much into it. It's just about karting or racing in general, nothing more, nothing less.

    General Commentyes, a very good track. i think it's the first song dallas wrote for alexis, but i'm not sure, i just remember reading it somewhere.. but i think shandy is right, there has to be something mroe to the song that just go karting.. i think it could be him and a friend go go karting and maybe one crashes and he gets injured bad? im not sure.. "we'll see who's machine was most recently serviced" could be about how it fails one of them or something? i dont know.. its a tough one.

    General CommentYeah, AOF tends to write songs about weird things, even go karting. But their music is still great.
