So I finished it… Build Nights! (Title Change Possible)

Some nights, I stay up trying to build a robot. 
Some nights, I brainstorm and draw. 
Some nights, I wish that my team could build this model 
Some nights, I wish this would line up 

But I still learn stuff, I still take some notes 
Oh Lord, I’m still not sure what this part is for 
What is this part for? What is this part for? 
Most nights, I screw up, and make four… oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh. 
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh 

This is it, team, here’s the score, what are we waiting for? 
Why don’t we read the rules already? 
I was never one to stay in the lines - save that for the frame design 

Build twice as much in just half the time,

But here they come again, to change the rules 

And that’s alright; We have a mentor on our team tonight 
He stops our brains from wandering the internet, internet, internet 
Oh, where’d the time go? mmm… mmm… 

Well, Some nights, I wish this would never end 
Cause I’m having some fun for a change
And some nights, I’m scared we’ll lose comms again 
Some nights, we always win, we always win… 

But I still learn stuff, I still take some notes 
Oh Lord, I still not sure what this part is for 
What is this part for? What is this part for? 
Most nights, I don’t know… (come on) 

So this is it? We spent six weeks on this? 
Washed our hands of grease for this? 
Missed our moms and dads for this? 

No. When I see bots, when I see, when I see bots that’s all they are 
But when I see ours, I know it’s the one, so come on 
Oh, come on. Oh, come on, oh come on! 

Well, This is it, team, that is all – ten matches in and the season ends 
Four years of this, I’m not sure if anybody leave 
This one is for all the ones that know; Sorry to leave, mom, I had to 
Go 
Couldn’t leave the robot alone, disconnected on a lonely field. 

My heart is breaking for my teachers and the things that I called “grades” 
Man when I look into my teammate’s eyes… 
Man, you wouldn’t believe the most amazing things that can come from… 
A couple zip ties… ahhh… oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh 
Oh woah, oh woah, oh woah oh oh 

The other night, you wouldn’t believe the dream I just had about FRC 
About us and our winning team 
It’s for the best we start to listen 
It’s for the best we kept on building 
It’s for the best we start to listen 
It’s for the best we kept on building… oh…
