The Lyrics

Wanna know things? Head to the Frequently Asked Questions section, that usually helps. "Usually" helps, to be clear...
Let's say you have a problem
Let's say you don't know shit
But you know the one place to go
To give problem-solvin' a start
It's not buried in a sub-folder (it's obvious in its labels)
The one thing it's not done wrong (really hate the fact that's true)
But the rest? I have to run down
Why your quest will end up a farce

Sad but true, it's an awful FAQ, hmm
This site has an awful FAQ, oh-oh-oh
The whole thing is awful (shit FAQ)
Questions it asks aren't the obvious
The basics have run off, it's all obscure shit that won't help you
This thing is an awful FAQ, hmm
An absolute awful FAQ, oh-oh-oh
The whole thing is awful
Answers its got are not simple ones
Just crammin' in a lot of terminology you don't use

I know it's hard to hear it
But you'll really be better off
Postin' your ask on Twitter now
'Cause at least that will give you help
This FAQ is so damn condescendin' (that's not really appealin')
What is obvious to it is not (the tone is bizarrely rude)
And sure the Twitter knobs will still do all that rot
But that's what you expect from them now

It's the truth, it's an awful FAQ, hmm
Web site has an awful FAQ, oh-oh-oh
The whole thing is awful
Got a weird font, it's so hard to parse
And copy-paste is blocked so I can't turn it into sense, rude
Damn thing is an awful FAQ, oh (so completely awful)
A completely awful FAQ, oh-oh-oh (who wrote this damn awful FAQ, mate?)
The whole thing is awful
Terms they've made up, it's a bunch of mush
So hard to search for what you want, so I'm frequently confused
It's a really awful FAQ, mate

It's so bad, real awful FAQ
Pile of crap, real awful FAQ
The whole thing is awful (shit FAQ)
It's both too long and too short because
It constantly repeats itself with barely anythin' new (shit FAQ)
It's so sad, real awful FAQ
Total crap, real awful FAQ
The whole thing is awful (shit FAQ)
Barely stays on-topic, off its nut
With goin' on about their gamin' setup, this FAQ's for stews (shit FAQ)

This thing is an awful FAQ, oh
An absolute awful FAQ, oh-oh-oh
The whole thing is awful
Links it has got? Don't you dare click one
'Cause half of them are broken, half are redirects to porn, dude, lazy
Damn thing is an awful FAQ, oh (holy crap, it's awful)
A completely awful FAQ, oh-oh-oh (might be the most awful FAQ, mate)
The whole thing is awful
Not gonna solve any wrongs you got
You're only gonna make it worse, directions are so obtuse
Don't trust this damn awful FAQ, mate

Made it clear it's awful
All ways, it's an awful FAQ, mate (shit FAQ)
Head to the forums and hope no-one
Has asked the question with no answers then it's locked, then you're screwed (shit FAQ)

Oh, darlin', I was blind to let you go (let you go, baby)
But now since I see you in his arms (I want you back)
