Convoy


Liner Notes:You've probably experienced it. We know that we have. A line of bikers riding in convoy passes you in a race where drafting is illegal. Of course there's never a course marshall in sight when it happens and you get left in the dust as the train goes by. This one is for all of you out there who bike their own race.

go out in a pack on the swim like a fish
hoping for a win on a prayer and a wish
hold the buoy line, two more turns and we’re done
40K bike then it’s time for the run

speed out of T1 out onto the open road
climb a giant hill lungs about to explode
what’s that up ahead, a line of bikers I can see
hey would you look, I think it’s JT!

convoy
they’re really picking up speed
convoy
stayin’ way out in the lead
convoy
they’re way too close as you can see
convoy
I think it’s time for penalties!

marshall on a motorcycle, time to give some space
all the drafters in a line must really want to win this race
stuck in a clump, no way for me to get through
you and I both know, this ain’t the ITU!

try to hold it back, keep gettin’ sucked into the pack
if these tools weren’t draftin’ they’d be way out in the back
heart rate’s spikin’ high as they all go by in a line
watch them fall apart as they hit a giant climb

convoy
they’re really picking up speed
convoy
stayin’ way out in the lead
convoy
they’re way too close as you can see
convoy
I think it’s time penalties!

convoy
sure wish they’d join me in my pain
convoy
and quit ridin’ in a train
convoy
finish on my own two feet
convoy
I guess that’s how they can compete
