The Lyrics

An ode to the FiveM controversy wherein a group of modders, discontented with how Rockstar is running things in their GTA Online MMO, decided to improve on the formula by coming up with their own implementation, only to be banned by the company from accessing their games and social features as they saw it as "facilitating piracy". This is how I view the issue from both sides of the table.
[Part 1: Take-Two]
I don't care 'bout games; just profits
All to crave my endless greed
Hackers mess our hard-earned assets
This isn't what Take-Two needs

Grand Theft's IP is our own
Meddling nerds who mod begone
And our wish came true
Multiplayer modders get sued!

I don't care 'bout games; just profits
All to crave my endless greed
Hackers mess our hard-earned assets
This isn't what Take-Two needs

Why'd I care at what you're playing?
Corporate fart; out of place
By it's own I'm not that happy;
If it sells that makes my day

Grand Theft's IP is our own
Meddling nerds who mod begone
And our wish came true
Multiplayer modders get sued!
Boo, baby

[Part 2: Fans]
Oh, shut your trap you greedy scoundrel!
This suit proves you're sniffing snow
Ill treatment of your fans and talents*
Rockstar sank to a new low

I hope EFF would notice
So they'll scorn you for this schtick
Stifle creativity?
That's tantamount to treachery!

Stock multiplayer's but a fright
Made it better, yet they'd bite
Not much I can do
Baby, multiplayer modders get sued!
Boo, baby

Look, at the dollars coming
From Shark Cards everywhere**
And they go cha-ching
Yet they're not playing fair

Now irate players' cringing
The drama this is bringing
Used to flaunt and bash, nowadays they're fed with cash
Makes me think of just going indie, e-e-e***

Oh, I'm amazed you won all lawsuits
Moral guardians; now us fans****
Why'd you bite us all? That's crazy!
Slapped us with these permabans

Stock multiplayer's but a fright
Made it better, yet they'd bite
Not much I can do
Baby, multiplayer modders get sued!

Multiplayer modders get sued, crazy!
Multiplayer modders get sued, crazy!
Multiplayer modders get sued, crazy!
Multiplayer modders get sued, crazy!
* Rockstar was and still is criticised for its alleged shortchanging and improper treatment of their employees. One star ratings at Glassdoor show this.
** Shark cards, which are scratch cards containing codes to ingame cash in GTA Online, are a lucrative revenue source to Take-Two/R*, hence why some view it as a lowbrow move by the company
*** Controversies involving big-label corporate-run developers are so commonplace that this may account for the rise of indie studios producing innovative content.
**** GTA is no stranger to controversy as we all know, from parents who view the series as "a menace corrupting the youth", and now with fans themselves turning on the company's pretentious and callous treatment of their community.
