We don't get cable in Belle Plaine
But on Thursday night there's matches on TV
Get kicked out of the living room for watching
My brother and me
My brother and me

Keep watching with the lights out back in his room
Chris Jericho starts tearing up the set
I want to do right by my brother
I want to do right by this feeling in my gut

Everybody's got their own spot
Find mine
In 64 point type atop the top line
Up on the top line

Head up to camp in Boston
Come up through the independents
Those who would stand between me and my final destination
get torched inside the fire of my transcendence

California, Minnesota, Massachusetts,
They can tell I'm coming up by the expression on my face
I'm gonna make a lot of money
Everyone I love is gonna have their own safe place

Everybody's got their own spot
Find mine
In 64 point type atop the top line
Up on the top line

    General CommentJohn's message at the time of release:

    When Beat the Champ came out, a wrestler named Sasha Banks tweeted at me: “Where’s my song, @mountain_goats?” As a territories guy I had to learn her story. I said I’d finish the song by the end of the tour; it took a little longer than that.

    Last night Sasha Banks wrestled for the Money in the Bank title, and while she didn’t take it home this time, I’ve learned enough about where she came from and how she got to where she is now to say with confidence: the sky is the limit for you. Your walk is just beginning and the day will come when all your setbacks look like steps on a ladder.

    Jon Wurster and I recorded this song at Chris Stamey’s place last week — that’s Chris on bass; I last worked with Chris on the Moon Colony Bloodbath DP. Thanks to Chris for making this happen and to the Boss, Sasha Banks herself, for inspiring us all – to learn about you and to write this song was a real honor for me.

    Dedicated of course to Sasha and to everybody who’s even had a hint of what it looks like when your dreams start pushing their elbows through the gauze into the real world of blood & sweat & bone.
