The Lyrics

A man who wishes to attain true inner peace...and fails to see the issue with his methods.
I'm still not at nirvana
Why can't I tap nirvana?
All earthly ties are as fictive as Santa
And they're as red as Santa
I've purged my earthly links, give up the trick, bud
Had my links cut, so give up
Want peace of mind, want peace of mind, want peace of mind

Hands are clean, folks were hired
Both hands clean, had folks hired
A simple plan, ingenious plan, still a failed plan

Want nirvana
Want nirvana
Want nirvana
Want it

I wanna have nirvana
Out of my grasp, nirvana
Been barred from me, so what if I'm a grabber?
Who cares if I'm a grabber?
It's not from greed, just a nicked-things collector

Swear I will have nirvana
Give me that damn nirvana
Some inner peace will make me a game master
Yes, an online game master
One who won't freak from the grifters and glitchers
Screw those grifters and glitchers
Douchebags online won't break my mind if peace is mine

Want nirvana
Want nirvana
Want nirvana
Want nirvana

It's so weird to parody a song that Weird Al has also done and discovering that Weird Al's version is actually longer (in this case an expanded second verse and a new intro, but I think he pared down the solo and outro to compensate) when he usually trims out the repetitions.
