You’ve got that sense of entitlement in the sense that
I’m fightin’ it, I’ve got a short fuse and you’re lightin’ it
Ignitin’ it’s gonna make us play stronger and harder
Throw the controller at your face and your face even farther
‘Cause we go to E3, we watch G4
We’ve got a 9 to 5 that we’d probly ignore
But if it wasn’t for people like you then we’d probly get bored
You say you make a lot of fun of us, well WE MAKE MORE!
‘Cause we don’t mind bein’ called freaks, nerds, dweebs
Pushin’ the start button down is like rolling up our sleeves
So what if we lose just a couple hit points
Just pushing right through all your negative noise
Don’t mean to rain on your parade or anything don’t get me wrong
But your not gonna last that long
Let me put it this way, you’ll be a planet
We’ll be Galactus, we’re not gonna have it!

So what if we like to do what we do?
It’s not like we’re gonna stop anytime soon
Pushin’ buttons is fun you should try it sometime
You know doin’ what you like’s not considered a crime
So what if we like to do what you won’t?
Hell, we’re damned if we do and we’re damned if we don’t
We’re callin’ you out, we’ve got nothing to lose
So what if we like to, what if we like to!

It’s not addiction, I’m more of a hobbyist
A second-rate video game rap lobbyist
I don’t care, I throw caution to the wind
Even if I end up in the bargain bin
It’s a system requirement to help me rock this hard
And I know you don’t care keep your hands where they are
With a Master Sword and a Screw Attack
And a Golden Gun you’ll get lost like Jack
Oh hey! Was that you?
I think you were missing just a couple of guys there
Was your controller unplugged or something?
Mashin’ buttons? See if I care!
Look it happens to the best of us when you met us
You told us you’re the best of the best, you shouldn’t test us
A ton of grown men cry, I don’t understand why
You thought you’d make it against us

Blue key smhlue key I just need a new key
To open up the door before somebody shoots me
Oh god he’s got an uzi, tell me if I am losing
Stupid XBOX Live yeah well you’re mom’s a floozy!

I hooked a clapper to a zapper anybody playin’ tapper’s
Gonna laugh or die cryin’ when I’m tryin’ to be a rapper
Thinkin’ “there’s a happy camper” let the situation damper
So I rap a little faster (faster?) faster (no!) faster
All you’re doin’s gettin’ madder when I’m takin’ out the hammer
Like it’s really gonna matter when I’m climbin’ up the ladder
But it’s just a proven factor that you’re not a good attacker
In the matter of of the chatter gonna scatter for the master!
