The Lyrics

Part of my "Turnin' It Up" self-challenge. Some video games have a hard mode. Some video games have a really hard mode. And some video games just wanna wreck your shit...
Last blow, yeah
Credits now, game reloads
Think I'll have another go, but I fear
I'm gon' catch ev'ry bullet through my pixelled pecs
But another go is what I'll go do next
I'm gonna show 'em, yeah
I hope I'll show 'em, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
It's inclusion might seem evil, though
Yes, this game has a hero mode

Just got here after a month, wait, was it two?
Spent a lot of time achievin' all I had to do
Yeah, hard mode was an utter slog to tell the truth
Still had fun with it but now it seems I have to choose (I have to choose)
Which difficulty I should go through
If I take a step down, I would just zoom
On a power trip now, but that won't do
I must up the ante on the next challenge to go through
So I'll have to tap on what I just unlocked to show you
That I'm not some lame loser who would never dare to do
Any harder game than I've done before, watch me slog through

Butt-Butt-Butt-Button press (press)
A new game for me, it's just that easy
No-No-Not lit'rally, this won't take a week, button press (press)
New difficulty, far beyond easy
Lo-Lo-Load up the screen, let's see what we'll see (yeah)

At first it looks normal but the catch is comin' soon
My attacks give half the damage to these dudes (dudes)
The weakest foe could Game Over my ass, it's true
Cause they're dealin' out damage that's multiplied by 'bout two (two, two)
Whether axes or staffs that shoot (shoot, shoot)
Bolts of ice or lightin', I think I'm screwed (I'm screwed, I'm screwed)
Tried to buy things to help kill dudes
But it seems the price doubles in this mode, that's really rude (pay up, stupid rookie)
Wanna pop a shot off but I can't use, uh
My gun, it's not broken, just got too few (few, few)
Rounds of ammunition, so I fume
Just wanna rob this bogus cashier, he's rude (rude, rude)
But now my brain's focused, it gets a clue
On Normal, I remember that that dude (what a prick)
Ate all my lives in about two (what a prick)
Se-seconds, ain't weak
What a prick, unrobbable, what a prick (prick)
New tactic, I'll need

Asshole, yeah, yeah
Help me, cut the bullshit out (ayy, ayy)

It feels like a rotten scam
"You just unlocked a brand new mode, aren't you a champ (yeah)?
Think I've hit the damn Game Over screen ten times, I'm mad
This is cheaper than Scrooge before his heart change, man
Now I'm down one more life, ayy-ah, one more life, ayy-ah
One more life, ayy, wish I could grind, ayy

But that part's shite, ayy, killin' was so simple, man
Until the low-grade villains stab as hard as the old end boss, man
I cut grass a lot (down a lot) for supplies (yeah, right)
And I find (yeah, what) jack, ain't right (yeah)
Random drops are sweet (best ever) if they're nice (yeah, what)
Now they're like (yeah) a tad better, yikes (aw, man)
That's when I (yeah) set out to find (yeah)
The hidden shite (yeah), that's the best shite (yeah)
Did not expect (yeah) that what I'd get
That those hidden spots are no longer there, I fret (shit!)
They're all gone, up and moved (ayy), so now I fume (ayy)
Not one for cheatin', a guide I'm not grabbin'
Guess I'm gonna be searchin' (yeah, what), fingers hurtin' (yeah, what)
Think I'm near 'em (yeah, yeah), then death comes veerin' (yeah)

I know some of you will ask
"But why do you even continue with all that?
It sounds like a load of utter bollocks, just seems sad (woo-ooh-ooh)
To play on with that when your death's common as crap"
Hear you now, kinda right (ayy), kinda right, kinda right, kinda right
Kinda right (yeah), kinda right, kinda right (yeah)

Quickly went to check if anythin's unlocked, that's right, yeah
It turns out "quite a lot" is the answer I found online, yeah
Must push on through, yeah (yeah), no quittin' dude (won't quit)
I can't stop this because there's loot, yeah (skrrt, skrrt)
Some achievements won't show up if I don't beat this too, yeah
Kinda like a trap to force players to continue, yeah (oh my God)
A cheeky hook, yeah, that's how it looks, yeah
Dirty trick, yeah (trick), but now I'm hooked, yeah
Yes, I wouldn't bother if the Internet guide book (yeah)
Showed that there was no reward, now I guess my year is booked, yeah


Not based on any specific game, though the name is derived from the Legend of Zelda tradition of Hero Mode. And I have in fact not bothered with Hard Mode on video games if they don't give me anything outside of bragging rights (see Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and, well, The Legend of Zelda).
