I'm taking it slow, keeping the pace
I'm only looking to place
Never a loss, never a win
Bronze metals hangin' from my bed
I'm running the gray matter laps
Outta my mind on the outer track
If I don't feel someone else will
It's all downhill from here

On my own
Running out the one man marathon
Going for the bronze, bronze, bronze

Taking the licks, getting my stripes
Everything in life comes with a price
By a thread stay alive
Make it happen in a third rate stride for the
Runner up, runner up, runner up prize
I'll take what I can get at the finish line
Drafting the pack in the blind
All thoroughbreds in their prime

Bound to show
Running down this lonely road
Forgoing the gold
I'm going, going, going for the bronze

I know there could be nothing more than this
As their all pushing their limits
I am left wondering what I missed
'Cause they all seem trapped
Hopelessly fighting over scraps
I won't miss them when they're gone
I won't miss them when they're gone

On my own
Running down the young man's marathon
Going for the bronze, bronze, bronze
