The Starcraft effect song


This song include different GTP experiences. Follow the lyrics.
“Starcraft effecty” by Jude.

The Tetris Effect is a mental phenomenon
Comes from playing way too much it seems
Falling blocks will follow you all day long
Even showing up inside your dreams

But me I dream of siege tanks and hydralisks
And zealots and battlecruisers chasing me
Sometimes I’m fighting a hundred ultralisks
And I got nothing but a wounded SCV

‘Cause I’m coming down with
The Starcraft Effect, yeah, it’s an addiction
Where the borders fade between real life and fiction
While you’re here on Earth, I’m on Aiur or Char
When lightning strikes, I look out for templar

And the creep’s creeping up, the marines are dropping down
There are mutalisks flying around and around

And I think I’m losing my mind
But there’s just one way to unwind
I close my eyes, take a deep breath
And I log on to Battle NetYeah, I log on to Battle Net

I poke strangers again and again
Just to hear them tell me to stop
And it’s so disappointing when
They don’t quote Aliens or Robocop

At the diner with all my friendsI said “Pass the reavers” not the dinner rolls
And when they came up short at the end
I said “You’ve not enough minerals”‘Cause I’m coming down with
The Starcraft Effect, yeah, it’s a disease
Like defiler’s plague, it drains all your HPs
I can feel it inside driving me insane
I think the Overmind is controlling my brain

And the creep’s creeping up, the marines are dropping down
There are valkyries flying around and around
And I think I’m losing my mind
But there’s just one way to unwind
I close my eyes, take a deep breath
And I log on to Battle Net
Yeah, I log on to Battle Net

Running and screaming down the street
Mistook my neighbor’s dog for a zergling today
Gotta admit, though, it was pretty sweet
When I whipped out my underarm grenades

People gettin’ scared hearing ’bout nukes on TV
But I don’t think we have to worry a lot
All we need to do is spawn a few more ovies
And keep our eyes peeled for blinking dots

‘Cause we’re coming down with
The Starcraft Effect, yeah, it’s an obsession
I’ve gone over the edge, yeah, that’s my confession
Thought I was finally free, but what did they do
Blizzard went and released Starcraft II

Well, the creep’s creeping up, the marines are dropping down
There are interceptors flying around and around
And I think I’m losing my mind
But there’s just one way to unwind
I close my eyes, take a deep breath
And I log on to Battle Net
Yeah, I log on to Battle Net
And kick some butt
