YES! I get a new Mega Man suit
With souped up lights and a Frisbee to boot
And they’ve got what? An electric cattle prod bring it on
Me and Tron can see ‘em comin’ (runnin’) with the lights on
Fight’s on unidentified flying diskette
It’s an identity disk, take THAT ya chess set
Best that, you stay away, from me and my bike
Shooting laser walls from the tailpipe
But really, who do you calculate you are anyway?
You want games? Fine! Alright! I’ll give you games
I’ve got group 7 access
Plain and simple, you need a little help
You haven’t built a circuit that can hold me
Me? I can merge with a memory bit
A master computer can’t handle a user
So please send out every tank in the grid

It’s the team you didn’t expect
With the Blue Light Special M-P-F-M and Tron
Rock another level of digital badass with the Blue Light Special
BOOM Luminaire two in the air
Blue Light Special-attack it’s a killer app
Harder than the hardest of metals…it’s a Blue Light Special

I don’t have an army but I really don’t need one
Since this is my work it just feels like a rerun
Rerun, reboot, refile, we’ll get the source code
Audio blaring binary Morse code
Throw out an explosive warning, storming the gates
You made a mistake, you sealed your fate
Take it or leave it, I suggest you get a pop-up blocker
If you don’t, I suggest you get a very good doctor
I’ve got a list of commands that will TAB your FUNCTION
SHIFT your CTRL, short circuit a munchkin
I’m a walking glowstick and I’m takin’ a trip
To kick digital ass, take names, and rock a bit
My motherboard’s cooled by alcohol content
Screaming obscene illegitimate nonsense
Just do me a favor here
It’s an eleven step pier with a twelve step process

A jukebox hero, a pinball wizard
Concieved what they believed to be a winner
Taken to the game arena
With an orange and a bottle of Aqua-fina
I just need to get this disk where it needs to be
And I don’t remember this part of Kingdom Hearts
And I only played a little bit of 2.0
So I never got past the start
If it’s a game then play, pull the pin out like so
It might glow, it might be a little bright though
Pixelated explosions motion
Generated no waitin’ lasers to the face
To the feet to the part of your brain that’s important
The virtual cortex portion
No matter how good you play
You were made that way
I’m flesh and bone for the win
