The Lyrics

Part of my "How We Do It" self-challenge. Oh no, I'm gonna die! Restarting...oh no, I'm gonna die! Restarting...oh no, I'm gonna die! Restarting...
I head straight for "restart" when I screw up
It's a reflex by now, two taps, it's done
Ev'ry ten seconds, save the game a bunch
Cheap? I'll cop to that, but you know I suck
Last hit point gone from shot shoulders
And you think I'll play the whole stage over?
Some may be bolder, but I checked
My last save was by that girder
Start of the stage? A bit further
No patience to put to the test

So with the slightest step, up the menu goes
Though my face is cool, inside boils rage like you don't know
This keeps it down, it's true, I don't wanna show
How much my mouth can get blue, AVGN tenfold
I'll save, screw up, reload, I'll save, screw up, reload

Go 'head and call me scum, you'd be correct
Not cause I think this trick's worth any regret
It's what the tactic's called, "save scumming", right
Makes one sound like such an arse, but I'm fine
My guy got crushed by a boulder
This whole level is flowin' the hell over
With deadly traps, screw that noise now, oh-oh-oh
When my guy gets pancaked, I'll reset it
Makin' mental notes 'bout how to prevent it
I'm slowly workin' it all out

Call me the save-state douche, I'm afraid it's so
Don't like cutscenes viewed more than ten times in a row
They're a pain in the rear, I'll make them go
Savin' right after they're viewed, one more reason my code
Is save, screw up, reload, I'll save, screw up, reload

You want the game played true? Do that on your own
My petty method works for me, can't break out of that flow

This stupid boss, I'll kill, work his tricks out
Savin' til I sort which part's the next phase now
But if the save method screws me out of how I roll
I'm fine with that, you see, I'd just need stress balls
I'll save, screw up, reload, I'll save, screw up, reload
I'll save, screw up, reload, oh-oh, I'll save, screw up, reload

I'd make an Edge of Tomorrow joke here, but I haven't actually seen that movie.
