IRL

Wake in the morning to the sound of the chime
My phone ringtone set to Ocarina of Time
Throw on a t-shirt, I’m sure it says something witty
Pull on cargo pants and Chucks, take the Hyundai to the city

Got to spend a little time at the Half Price Books
Hit the loose leaf comics then I get myself a look
At the RPG shelf and the sci-fi bounty
Make sure to ask about the graphic novels ‘hind the counter

Bounce straight and pick up a bite to eat at the Jack
Sit alone with my burger and a dog-eared paperback
No stress, no hurry, just uncomplicated livin’
Back to my compact when I’m finished with my Niven

Gotta make a quick stop at the PO --
Netflix to drop off, BSG Season Three, go
To the comic shop, check my box for new editions
Preachin' Powers to the people is my mission

We take it slow, keep it low to the ground, don't sound
Like much, but it's livin' – just keep askin' around
We take it easy, on topics light and profound
Preach the virtues of the nerdcore life for which we're renowned

We take it slow, keep it low to the ground, don't sound
Like much, but it's livin' – just keep askin' around
We take it easy, on topics light and profound
Preach the virtues of the nerdcore life for which we're renowned

Pay less for our kicks – we're frugal moogles with our bills
Predilection for PlayStation puts our pennies into skills
With joysticks, twitching ticks, and single shot kills
Stop in Play-N-Trade, haggle with the barkers and shills

My distraction strolls in, mushroom on her chest
We shoot the breeze, you know my stees, seems my banter impressed
By the end I have her Facebook, MySpace, email and Twitter
With a wink she says that midnight is the best time to hit it

Sci-five to the Clerkz then I'm in my Elantra
Turns the tunes to Frontalot got me rockin' the mantra
“If you know the dir of the nerdcore rhyme you holla!”
Strange looks from the homies in the 6 4 Impala

Trek back to the Shire, it's a studio loft
Terry Bogard cap placed on the bust of Lara Croft
Hot pocket heating up hop on the forums of Fark
PM from the Cutie Honey chat her up until dark

We take it slow, keep it low to the ground, don't sound
Like much, but it's livin' – just keep askin' around
We take it easy, on topics light and profound
Preach the virtues of the nerdcore life for which we're renowned

We take it slow, keep it low to the ground, don't sound
Like much, but it's livin' – just keep askin' around
We take it easy, on topics light and profound

Sunset, TiVo's ready, Dollhouse on demand
Bit Torrent new Naruto episodes from Japan
Flip on the 360, Modern Warfare 2
Tea-baggin' those I pwn, son you know how we do

Draw some mana from the discard pile, by that I mean clothes
Do the laundry, cause the cloudkill is straight killing my nose
Quarters on the dryer, once reserved for Neo-Geo
Update Facebook status, “Doing chores is dildos”

See a comment from the cutie, also cleaning her pad
She's a wagon filled with pancakes and I sing like Strong Bad
LOL at my antics, as she checks out the link
For the win, as she's asking “meet 2mrw 4 drinks?”

Browse some Pr0n before I power down, alone in my bed
Got a grip of good memories streaming in my head
Cutie Honey on my mind while I sleep like the dead
“Today was a good day.” like Cube said

We take it slow, keep it low to the ground, don't sound
