Dan Bull - Gamers Without Borders lyrics

[Verse 1] Video games helped me survive through the hardest times Gaming kept me alive through the darkest nights Gaming let me live a little life in my mind That I could quit if I didn't like it but wouldn't have known it If I didn't try, think of it as a different type of literature, cinema The vision of a different eye, my daily life changed Since I've game-ified it, made it mine It wouldn't be the same if I'd stayed inside my ailing mind I've been failing life, unable to find a way to hide it This pain inside gets greater yet I'm taking pride in it My brain is trying, playing mind games so I'm playing my games To stabilise and save my life, games let me keep score When otherwise I wouldn't be able to summarise The basic reason why I'm even here for See a door and open it, see a portal, go for it See, although you're motionless You know to click and open up that coconut We speak for those that haven't spoken up There's loads of us, we were asleep but now we've woken up [Hook] Games helped me survive through the hardest times Gaming kept me alive through the darkest nights [Verse 2] Although on the surface it seemed I was sitting isolated My purpose really was to socialize outside my cage You see, this virtual world was the environment I'd find my mates in and be part of something larger Than the size of my location I came to judge others on character traits and not their nation Learnt team work, communication and co-operation I played Civilization with other civilizations Traded shots, gifts and information Give and take, my Game Boy's old and grey But it's the same Game Boy that I hold today How could I have sold it? Faced the pain of seeing it thrown away? So now, it sits by my Switch, another generation Gaming gave me a rich extracurricular education I went to places and ages school never bothered teaching The USSR to Egypt and even more farther reaching I've been part of the crowds in revolutionary France Fleetingly felt what it felt to give a brand new future a chance I empathised with other points of view, living in a bubble What else was a country boy to do? In fact, I took my surroundings for granted 'til my eyes Fell upon an Oblivion sunset, nearly cried Waited for the dawn to come, morning sun Feel it rise, now I appreciate experiencing the real skies I come outside, summer rain splashes on the paving And I'm like, "These graphics are amazing!" How many polygons are in a single drop of liquid? The figure's probably bigger than even your god predicted The laws of physics are a code by which we're not restricted 'Cause we've been modding it since the first bit of rock was lifted Real life and VR life are going to be like "Spot the Difference" It's not really a surprise, we realize we got addicted Logging in can steal time until we've lost the big picture Popular opinions we see online are often twisted But despite the cost of this, I'm highly optimistic To leaf the drop and reach the top We've got to risk it, we've got to paint on the wall of the cave Unless we want to keep replaying the oldest of saves You're not just holding the fort, mate You're holding your fate That's why I'll take my control to the grave So until the day my face is like my Game Boy Old and grey, I will remember that I'm never too old to play [Hook] Games helped us survive through the hardest times Gaming kept us alive through the darkest nights We speak for those that haven't spoken up There's loads of us, we were asleep But now, we've woken up Games helped us survive through the hardest times Gaming kept us alive through the darkest nights We speak for those that haven't spoken up There's loads of us, we were asleep But now, we've woken up [Outro] Games helped us survive through the hardest times Gaming kept us alive through the darkest nights Games helped us survive through the hardest times Gaming kept us alive through the darkest nights Games helped us survive through the hardest times Gaming kept us alive through the darkest nights
