lyrics

Time Viking Time Viking
Time Viking Time Viking

He's a viking and he travels in time
Blowing up stuff with his mind!

Time Viking Time Viking
Yeah
Time Viking Time Viking
Yea Yea
Time Viking Time Viking
Oo Time Viking
Time Viking Time Viking
Yea Yea Yeah

He's a viking and he travels in time
Blowing up stuff with his mind!

Blowing up stuff with his mind!

Blowing up stuff with his…

And bombs fall
on a broken hearts
You may be disappointed
that we went all art

It wasn't
an easy choice
But the focus group testing
said try to be less annoying

Gotta take yourself
more seriously
No one wants to play a game
so philosophy-free

I'll interview
with journalists
and say things like a lot of
people are not gonna get this

The concepts
transcend the norm
This game might suck
but that'll be ignored

And I'll get in a quip
about games as art
and compare those who disagree
with fascist dictators

Maybe I'll suggest
I've made the perfect game
even though it's derivative
even more than it's lame

First person shooters
and MMOs
will be unnecessary
in my New Time Viking World Order

They call him the viking of time,
He's chronologically inspired to enact the sublime
Yet illogically
nigh metaphysically highly original combine
memes of dreams construct themes corrupting
mind bullets make things boom telekinetic doom
can assume
that the future is for time viking
build towers so high with mind powers the
sky's out
Down for the count
and it's goodnight

Doesn't even care about dying daring to fly psychotically
trying
Gonna be
redefining this world
cause it's all
hexed by the weight of the moon
That's right it's
hard core lunacy nerd supremacy
Overdue destruction of the herd mentality
Something we call lunacide
Destroy the
moon and we free the minds

Haters bringing up science taking
away for the sake of the hive
Why do they yell about the laws of time bringing Einstein
right into the ring as decider
But now the science gonna take a back seat
to the magical power of the time viking
and the whole wide
world's gonna stare at spectacle
It’s time travel and telekinesis

Try to find that in your big book of physics
Try to explain viking mysteries try to complain
when the moon crashes down when apocalypse
rains insanity maims humanity
claims mortality pains me to say
again but this end is night and the trend's right
for the new rise of the viking
It's time
It's time it's time it's time

This is amazing
This game has got no z0mb1es but you're playing it
I'm not one to brag but hey I made it
with C# and XNA yeah

Copy it all
Again and again
Following all
Again and again
Not gonna get it
Never ends again

This is amazing
This game has got no z0mb1es but you're playing it
I'm not one to brag but hey I made it
with C# and XNA yeah

Copy it all
Again and again
Following all
Again and again
Not gonna get it
Never ends again

Copy it all
Again and again
Following all
Again and again
Not gonna get it
Never ends again

Time Viking! Time Viking!

Time Viking! Time Viking!

Yeah
Time Viking! Time Viking!
Time Viking! Time Viking!
Yea Yea Yea Time Viking
Time Viking! Time Viking!
Yeah Yeah
Time Viking! Time Viking!

He's a viking and he travels in time
Blowing up stuff with his mind!

Time Viking! Time Viking!
Yeah here we go Time Viking
Time Viking! Time Viking!
It’s the final showdown
Time Viking! Time Viking!

Come on come on come on Time Viking
Time Viking! Time Viking!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
He's a viking and he travels in time
Blowing up stuff with his mind!

And we'll be done
When the moon crashes down
I think I've pissed off my neighbors
enough for now

I'm kinda surprised
No one called the cops
Because I can't hear my doorbell
and I can't hear knocking

So what recourse remains
for domestic screaming
Unless word got out
that I'm game making

Cause I'm the new guy
in suburbia
and when I get on the mic
I'm a pain in the butt

But you wanted a sequel
to my game with zombies
and I thought long and hard
and came up with this

Someone somewhere decided
I'm a talentless hack
So they made zombie games too
hoping for quick cash

But it won't work like that
and it won't work like this
Making games so pretentious
is so caustic

Maybe blow up planets
Let's make some art
Let's bomb ourselves
with metaphor
