"Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen and welcome to the Dan Brock Memorial Stadium! Are you ready for an afternoon of baseball? I hope you are because it's Geoff Moore and the Distance, going up against the big guy, the Prince of Darkness (Darkness)!
It's been quiet on evolution with Geoff Moore and the Distance. That's why it's brought them to the game today.
So I want you to kick back and enjoy a fun-filled afternoon on baseball(baseball)!
The teams are assembled, are you ready?

PLAY BALL!"

The lights go on, another game day
I grabbed my bat, and headed for the plate
But the first pitch was a curve, and I was done

(Umpire) Strike One!

I stepped out of the box, looked the pitcher in the eye
You could read his lips, hey punk you're mine
So I have him a wave and said let's see what you can do

(Umpire) Strike Two!

Gotta keep my eye on the ball
Swing straight and true and follow through
And don't be afraid, whatever the call
Because we're never alone, our coach is there to cheer is on

Well, it's the wind-up
Here comes that ball
You've gotta pray and swing, watch it till its goin, goin, its gone

Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, oh we need a home run
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, oh we need a home run

You know life can be like a baseball game
We're on the same team but we're not all the same
That's why we've gotta learn to play together

I didn't join this team just to sit on the bench
I'm going deep, swinging for the fence
I got some friends on base, I gotta get home

Gotta keep my eye on the ball
Swing straight and true and follow through
And don't be afraid, whatever the call
Because we're never alone, our coach is there to cheer is on

Well, it's the wind-up
Here comes that ball
You've gotta pray and swing, watch it till its goin, goin, its gone

Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, oh I want a home run
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, oh I want a home run

We are not the first to play this game, to stand over this plate
We are surrounded be the legacy
I see 'em sittin' in the stands
I can see them wavin their hands
Sayin go, go, all the way

(Umpire) "it's going, it's going, it's going,
Oh my! I'ts out of here! That baby is gone(gone)!"

Come on now,


Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, home run

Hey its gone, gone now


Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, home run

Hey its a homerun


Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, home run

Batter bat, batter bat, its gone


Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, oh
Oh, ohho, ohh, home run

    My OpinionI've always thought this song was about not backing down and not letting things discourage you


    Plus its about baseball.
