A New World Record
Pigfarmer Jr

I dream of you until I'm sure
I never want to wake up
I lost my phone, can't make a call
So there's no way to make up

I know you wouldn't answer if I called

A new world record for being without you
A new world record for what you put me through
I don't want to be the guy who always falls in love with you,
In love with you

Late at night when I wake up
I swear I still see your eyes
(Like) Constellations in the dark
I turn my gaze to northern skies

A puzzle I can never hope to solve

A new world record for being without you
A new world record for what you put me through
I don't want to be the guy who always falls in love with you,
In love with you

I know we never truly were a thing
I guess it's something more like just a dream
And I keep writing songs in hopes that you might hear me sing

A new world record for being without you
A new world record for what you put me through
I don't want to be the guy who always falls in love with you,
In love with you

A new world record for being without you
A new world record for what you put me through
I don't want to be the guy who always falls in love with you,
In love with you

A New World Record by Balls To Monte - lyrics by Fred Benz

I set a new world record
It looked easy as pie
No one tried to set this one before and I don't know why

I started thinking about it
When I was only eight
I spent years working out the kinks ‘til it was great

Hoist the Glory Potion
Surf on the devotion
Fame without the fortune

Only so many people can fit in the book

My friends thought I was crazy
At first they all were jealous
They don’t call me anymore they say I’m overzealous

I set a new world record
Was harder than I thought 
Is all I got for fighting worth everything I fought

Hoist the Glory Potion
Surf on the devotion
Fame without the fortune

Only so many people can fit in the book
"...and it ain’t a fit night out for man or beast!”

A New World Record
The Hell Yeahs

I got the tragic touch
turnin’ glass into sand
I might break too much
But it slips right outta my hand

Oh oh, oh-a oh, oh-no, oh no

I think I spilled the punch
And I broke up the band
I may be out to lunch
But you’re eatin’ off the back of my hand

You bring it in for repairs, I’m throwin’ it down the stairs

‘Cause when I fix it, it doesn’t even get listed
But when I wreck it I set a new world record

I make a major mess
Anywhere that I’m able
You’re a house of cards i guess
And I just kicked out the table

Oh oh, oh-a oh, oh no, oh no

Looks like I’m causin’ a scene
I can’t take instruction
I’m a calamity queen
Destruction junction, that’s my function

Bring your heart in to be healed, I’ll leave it on the battlefield

‘Cause when I fix it, it doesn’t even get listed
But when I wreck it l set a new world record

A New World Record
Ujn X Reve

Whispers drowned in static
The silence of the screams
A new world record, in the hum of the machine

The lies are automatic
Dreams lost to routines
For your consideration, another data stream

A chorus that grows louder, with another false refrain,
A new world record, in the ignorance we feign.

When the parasite is host and the code has been misread.
For your consideration, the truth is all but dead.

In the resonance of progress, a new world's dawn,
We're the ghosts in the circuitry, never moving on.
At the pinnacle of progress, a new dawn awaits,
We're the phantoms in the grid, opening the gates.

For your consideration, another data stream
For your consideration, another data stream

A New World Record (For Your Consideration) - Frankie Big Face

Dear Guinness Executive Director
I am writing with a story
For your consideration
I’m setting a new world record
Without even trying!
Here’s a brief summation:

I jumped through a million hoops
Bent right over backwards
Dug myself the deepest hole
Then climbed myself right out
Made all the greatest moves
And uttered all the right words
Did more than anyone else
But I still didn’t get that girl!

Dear Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
I am writing with a tale
Of pure imagination
I was floating on the highest of clouds
But I fell to the earth
And just kept going!

I crashed through the outer crust
Directly through the mantle
Nonstop through the core
And out the other side
Walked from Australia
Straight back to Philadelphia
Did more than anyone else
But I still didn’t get that girl!
