FEELSBADMAN
When you’re fighting in the nexus
in the wrong lane
FEELSBADMAN

But there’s also so many things that makes me FEELSGOODMAN

Chorus
But in the end y’know we’re all playin Blizzard Games

There’s so many things that makes me FEELSBADMAN
But there’s also so many things that makes me FEELSGOODMAN

Chorus
But in the end y’know we’re all playin Blizzard Games
