Like Rampage (See Songworm Segment One), this is about a video game from inside. I hope it s obvious which game this is about.

You Dm
live 
every C
day 
and the Dm
nights 
in between
G
Trap
ped inside of a small haunted A
maze
.
Dm
You re 
just a C
face 
on the Dm
edge 
of a screen
With the F
sign
posts that G
num
ber your A
days
.

And you re Dm
livin
 in a C
vid
eo, Dm
vide
o, C
vid
eo,
Dm
Livi
n  in a C
vid
eo Dm
game
.
You Dm
work 
for the C
man
, but you Dm
run 
with the pack.
A
Liv
in  in a video Dm
game
.

You re stuffin  your face and you re honin  your skills,
While the monsters all home in on you!
You don t know what s in all them pulsating pills,
But they make the ghosts look like they re blue.

(Chorus)

You re given no quarter, and life can be cheap.
(Your life s) not worth a nickle right now.
There s nowhere to turn, and the walls are too steep,
And you re turned into maze-monster chow.

(Chorus)
