Reality as a series of video game failures

It's the Sims
The house is on fire
and it's too late to install a phone

You work in admin
Spending all day hiding
in cardboard boxes
It's Metal Gear Solid
It's like snake, snake

It's like snake, you consume everything in your path
Like Pacman you engulf everything you come across
It's tragic
and at half five it's home time
and it's Sim Copter 1 reporting heavy traffic

It's all stress, even the domestic
Like Ratchet and Clank
you've gotta fix and rebuild this shit
but lately it seems as if the world has been falling down around you
like Tetris bricks

Turns out the Little Big Planet, is little, not big
Because you have to get out there
and collect gold rings like Sonic
The problem is;
you don't believe in the system in which gold rings exist
plus, you are suspicious of the powerful, the Doctor Robotniks

Open the front door
Enter the Matrix
In slow motion
The bullets still hit

All you've got to do
is see each week through
But every morning you wake up
and it's Guitar Hero and the crowd boo

The hangover is ultra-extreme nausea rating
Extreme intensity rating
Low excitement rating
0% popularity

You spend your life
chasing a terrorist dressed like a clown
through a Parisian sewer
You stink

Side step
Jump
Hadouken
Hadouken

Level Up
Promotion
Level Up
1st class train seat

But be warned
Do one thing wrong and you are back to the start
and I don't mean the start of the level
I mean the start of the game

You need to get the cape
wear the cape
and fly
