The Lyrics

...For anyone who has played those annoyingly difficult computer games 'Myst', 'Riven' and 'Myst 3: Exile'.
Verse 1
They've disappeared without a trace,
Sirrus and Achenar,
We're not told who they are,
Trapped in books, we're not told why,
The badly rendered sky
Makes you just wanna die
Atrus, we assume that you're their dad
So go and get them back
And end this stupid Myst fad,

Chorus
I'm such a geek in my flat,
Playing Myst is a trap,
Once you play you can't stop it,
Even though it's crap,

Verse 2
With your linking books and tattered socks,
You'd make fans buy a game
When you were on its box
In D'ni goggles and white cape,
Despite the storyline
The game made punters gape
Opportunities would appear
Whenever 'Myst' was near
There were no rivals here
Because you looked just like your son
There were just two actors in it
So they used the same one,

Chorus
I'm such a geek in my flat,
Playing Myst is a trap,
Once you play you can't stop it,
Even though it's crap,

You reached the game top ten today,
Another sequel's out in May,
The puzzles will be worse this time,
But maybe we'll know the storyline,

Go, Atrus, go, go,
Tell the world 'bout D'ni,
Go, Atrus, go, go,
The sounds have gone all funny,
Go Atrus
Go Atrus
Yeah, sell 'Myst' to the dummies,
Go Atrus
Go Atrus
Go, Atrus, go, go,
Go Atrus
Go Atrus
You reached the game top ten today, (go Atrus, go go)
Another sequel's out in May, (go Atrus, go go)
The puzzles will be worse this time, (go Atrus, go go)
But maybe we'll know the storyline,

Go, Atrus, go!
