    The song is by Cake and it's called The Distance. The lyrics are:

    Reluctantly crouched at the starting line
    Engines pumping and thumping in time
    The green light flashes, the flags go up
    Churning and burning they yearn for the cup

    They deftly manuver and muscle for rank
    Fuels burning fast on an empty tank
    Reckless and wild, they pour through the turns
    Their prowess is potent and secretly stern

    As they speed through the finish, the flags go down
    The fans get up and they get out of town
    The arena is empty except for one man
    Still driving and striving as fast as he can

    The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
    Not long ago somebody left with the cup
    But he's driving and striving an hugging the turns
    And thinking of someone for who he still burns

    He's going the distance
    He's going for speed
    She's all alone, all alone, all alone in a time of need

    Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course
    He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
    He's going the distance

    No trophies, no flowers, no flashbulbs, no lime
    He's haunted by something he cannot define
    Bowel shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse
    Assail him and bail him with monster truck force

    In his mind he's still driving, still making the grade
    She's hoping in time that her memories will fade
    'Cause he's racing and pacing and plotting the course
    He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse

    The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
    Not long ago somebody left with the cup
    But he's striving and driving and hugging the turns
    And thinking of someone for who he still burns

    'Cause he's going the distance,
    He's going for speed
    She's all alone
    All alone
    All alone
    In a time of need

    Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course
    He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
    He's racing and pacing and plotting the course
    He's fighting and biting and ridding on his horse
    He's going the distance
    He's going for speed
    He's going the distance
