Sound of Nerdcore

Maybe you were the fat kid   
Or maybe a math wiz that acted
Out all his biggest dreams the others laughed at
You'd react through retract and redact your nerd act
The impact was subtle as a GTA carjack  
Take your licks like a hero, it's a matter of course
Stay true to your roots 'cause your strong in the Force
Take the beatings, banter, broken words rip you apart
See us as  Ben and Yoda, trust these words we impart
Don't sell your soul for less gil than its worth
Because the geek shall inherit the Earth
With jubilant mirth, a humorous quirk, that jerks might work as drones
It's the nerdcore revolution, bitch, attack of the pwns 
Survival the 1337est, evolution of those more bright 
Fools fall behind while nerds rise up like Phoenix Wright
Don't be perturbed by the riots that we incite
Now all Padawans become Jedi Knights

'cause

This is the sound of nerdcore,
knockin’ at your door, knockin’ at your door
This is the sound of nerdcore,
knockin’ at your door, knockin’ at your door
This is the sound of nerdcore,
knockin’ at your door, knockin’ at your door
This is the sound of nerdcore,
knockin’ at your door, knockin’ at your door

Former D&D addicts now curing your ailments
Constructing your computers, infecting you governments
Those you stuffed into their lockers are now running your lives
Inventing all the things that you bought at Best Buy
They  hated  on Nintendo, now they've all got an Xbox
And everybody's fucking browsing with Mozilla Firefox
I see you're in a Zelda Shirt, that game was a classic
Now prepare to get your poser, scenester pop-punk ass kicked
Nerdcore army on the move, standing tall and we're well equipped
Blessings from the pastor of the Perry Bible Fellowship
Alliance and the Horde join forces for the raid
Got our Military budget from the Penny Arcade
Chuck Taylors on our feet, Power Gloves on our hands
Light Sabers at the ready, here's our list of demands
Nothing short of full submission, on this you must comply
Oh, and bring back Firefly...

Fox

This is the sound of nerdcore,
knockin’ at your door, knockin’ at your door
You really should invest in a 4-door
invest in a 4-door, invest in a 4-door
We gotta take the ring back to Mordor
the ring back to Mordor, the ring back to Mordor

In the year Two-Thousand X, there came two hip-hop gurus
Who amassed a mighty army with a call of Cthulhu
We're gathered like PAX on opening day
With a shout of "Leeroy Jenkins!" as we enter the fray
Blood spilt on an octagonal tabletop arena
Archers dressed as Legolas, amazons like Xena
Robot Jocks, Tank Police, and space marines
beat on house dogs long enough and we become wolverines
Door to door, two by two, like a Jenova's Witness
Please surrender or we'll render you inert with a quickness
Ambitious and malicious every geek heeds the call
This is Nerdcore America we're taking it all
From Gamestop, to Gameworks, to Lanwerks we hail
Your counter-attack's no Counterstrike, it's an epic fail
Your kingdom is extinguished like the butt of a cigarette
The nerds are on the rise, no one's manning the Internet
This is not a slaughter, you won't go to your graves
Nerds are just too lazy, we will need you as slaves
This is the Tenth Crusade, Revenge of the Nerds
Revolution X, World War the Third
Re-enacted in a console game, coming soon
Our triumphs to be retold in Call of Duty 22

Gamers, drunk on halo with half-a-mind to shorten your half-life
For the Horde?  For the win?  For the end of this shit we've been in
Children of Rod Serling, prey upon you like Silverhawks
Wrapped up in storm trooper armor ain't that funny anymore
Will and the word, power of the force compels you
Club you like baby seals, this is our Newground
Check Wikipedia, conflict is already over, you lost
Article has references and everything
It's like that speech Kool-Aid man gave, the one about the dream
Were he busts through your wall and totally rapes you at Halo
well, we're doing that, but with life, like a LARP
But real like Rock of Love 2. 
Seriously, you shoved us in lockers like Tetris pieces
But we connected like Voltron, and now we're busting out our sword
It means the battle's soon over, our animation budget has run out

This is the sound of nerdcore, knockin' at your door, knockin' at your door
This is the sound...
This is the sound of nerdcore, knockin' at your door, knockin' at your door
This is the sound...
