The Lyrics

It basically took me twenty years since I thought of coming up with a Titanic song parody, albeit something that has absolutely nothing to do with the ship at all, or Jack and Rose for that matter.

This one's a sappy tale of a PC enthusiast who wasn't that lucky with the silicon lottery, with an overclock gone horribly wrong using defective parts. Not only did he get a lower-binned CPU, his board and power supply went up in smoke.
Everyday with my rig
I do things, play YouTube
That's until one night, won't turn on

Think it "went the distance"
The clock speed's just too much
Silicon bet fell through, 'tis gone

Like tar, the score ain't to par
I believe overclock's make it run
Smelled smoke, now it's all but broke
Now I'm here broken hearted
My rig won't turn on and on

Phoned the RMA line
But it takes a lifetime
Parts replacement takes much too long

Power brick said "Adeu!"
And same time, the board too
Now I'm left with no rig, 'tis gone

Like tar, the score ain't to par
I believe overclock's make it run
Smelled smoke, now it's all but broke
Now I'm here broken hearted
My rig won't turn on and on

My peers, kept laughing right here
Cause they know my rig won't turn on
Been days, forever it stays
Couldn't get those replacements
My rig won't turn on and on
* The so-called "silicon lottery" is a term for "gambling" your chances of getting a CPU or GPU of a better grade amongst other seemingly identical parts. Chip foundries may produce stuff of varying quality, and while they do perform the same on the surface, pushing them harder may yield different results, i.e. higher or lower overclocks.
