“FeelsBadMan” by Lagging Balls

Verse 1
When I go out in the world to finish a quest
When I get ganked y’know what?
It FEELSBADMAN
When I kill a world boss and I don’t get no drops
That is something that’s also
FEELSBADMAN
That also reminds me that my class justgotnerfed
And that’s also something that
FEELSBADMAN
When you’re fighting in the nexus
in the wrong lane
FEELSBADMAN

Bridge
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
And it FEELS pretty GOOD man
ReallyGOODman
Huhnngfhf!

Verse 2
Open up a lootbox
Full of duplicates
FEELSBADMAN
Enemy team has both
Brig & Doomfist
FEELSBADMAN
Not top-decking lethal
in hearthstone
FEELSBADMAN
No Diablo 4 again
it
FEELSBADMAN

Bridge
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
And it FEELS pretty GOOD man
ReallyGOODman
Huhnngfhf!

Verse 3
Not smart enough
To play Starcraft
FEELSBADMAN
But hey do you know what
FEELS REALLY GOOD MAN?

Chorus
But in the end y’know we’re all playin Blizzard Games
And it FEELS pretty GOOD man
ReallyGOODman
Huhnngfhf!
