The Lyrics

You should never be ashamed to ask for help when you're having problems with a video game. However, there's a difference between "help" and "telling the player if they're not lag-cancelling on the seventh frame of the sixteen-button hidden combo, they're a useless scrub".
Uh-oh, once again I'm dead, no lives
Oh, I, I'm not havin' fun
But, oh, my friend seems to know how I
Well, oh, I can have some fun
But uh-oh, that's quite a lot of combos to try
And I-I, I'm not good enough
Look, bro, I asked just how to start the long climb
Cause I-I, I'm not good enough

That's too much, it's far too much
That's too much, no, no, no
Way too much, just far too much
Way too much, no, no, no

I asked you for the basics to not die
These don't seem like the basics, I can't lie, the basics
The basics, the basics, too high
The basics, the basics, too high

Should know how to use dropped frames to fly?
No, I, I think that's too much
Same goes for "recite each A.I. type
Know which foes are smart, which are dumb"
And oh yeah, I won't callous up my thumbs
Cause I-I like them far from numb
And oh yeah, those paid loot crates suck a bunch
I won't blow my last paycheck, bud

Just too much, they're just too much
Just too much, no, no, no
You're too much, you're way too much
You're too much, no, no, no

When I asked for the basics, I thought I
Would get some friggin' basics here tonight, the basics
The basics, the basics, too high
The basics, the basics, too high (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh, these are way too much (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh, for my level of (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh, skill, they're way too much (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh, dumb it down a bunch (oh-oh-oh)

Ayy, I have no use, ayy
For all your passwords and your cheats and your spoiled clues, ayy
Wanted the basics, ayy, a small how-to, ayy
More than this damn game gives you, ayy
Handbook? Lies, ain't present, zero guides apparent
And no character has lines so transparent
"A's best for pressin'", so far, I've just been guessin'
So tutorialise, I don't want speedrun presence, ah
That's too much (no, no), it's far too much (no, no)
That's too much, no, no, no (nah)
Way too much, just far too much
Way too much, no, no, no

I need to know the basics to survive (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Claimed you could give the basics, was that lies? The basics (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
The basics, the basics, too high (they're too much, they're too much) (oh-oh-oh)
They're too much, no, no, no (oh-oh-oh)
The basics, the basics, too high (just too much, just too much) (oh-oh-oh)
Just too much, no, no, no (oh-oh-oh)
The basics, the basics, too high (they're too much, they're too much)
They're too much, these are way too much
The basics, the basics, too high (just too much, just too much)
Just too much for my level, bud
The basics, the basics, too high (they're too much, they're too much)
They're too much, these are way too much
The basics, the basics, too high (just too much, just too much)
Just too much, dumb it down a bunch
The basics, the basics, too high (they're too much, they're too much)
They're too much, these are way too much
The basics, the basics, too high (just too much, just too much)
Just too much for my level, bud

Tutorialise is my word, you can't use it, it's mine, I copy-trademark-righted it! *quick Google search to see if people have used it, they totally have, in reference to video games not telling you things even* ...huh.
