lyrics

[Verse 1]

"I remember when it all started", something from a dream
Addicted to the black and green letters on my screen

Quicker than my peers, so inherent what it means
A uni student, prudent, coming out at seventeen

Watching code ascend 'til it towers like the Eiffel
Spend my time debugging and they're charging by the cycle

Studying the language so this guide is now my bible
The beauty of the baud dedicated this disciple

The world of the electron, wasn't to be stepped on
Hackers are the future, we're the ones for you to bet on

Fuel to the fire like computers were a chevron
But this is all decades way before I met John

So I let on, knowledge gives to wisdom
Got a job and it pays, and doesn't end in prison

Help secure computers by installing malware in 'em
Hoping they don't twist it turning me into the victim


[Chorus]

One more story, one more hacker
Back to the past when the path got fractured

Sometimes calm, sometimes disaster
“Turn the page and we start another chapter”

Just another story, just another hacker
Just another past, up until it shattered

Sometimes calm, sometimes disaster
“Turn the page and we start another chapter”


[Verse 2]

This white hat collar job saving me my backbone
Just the grind on my mind, seems like I'm half clone

Working for the money, you know how the math goes
Skills run of mill, feeling like I've plateaued

Happy with my job though can't afford a chateau
Could be worse, could've gotten stuck with Castro

Caught a pink slip, slip into the shadows
The fire that's been set inside, lungs are like tobacco

Economic downturn the reason that I'm told
Appeal would a be waste there's no chance that they'd uphold

There's no getting caught watch the scene as it unfolds
Worst case scenario I'm sure to get paroled

Abandoned so I fold, cancelling the show
Handed a la mode, now commanded and controlled

Inject drop cats, cross-site all that
Felon catching shells every time I hear a callback


[Chorus]

One more story, one more hacker
Back to the past when the path got fractured

Sometimes calm, sometimes disaster
“Turn the page and we start another chapter”

Just another story, just another hacker
Just another past, up until it shattered

Sometimes calm, sometimes disaster
“Turn the page and we start another chapter”


[Bridge x2]
“Don't trust anyone”
“Turn the page”


[Verse 3]

Compilers and source always all up on my screen
Internal code, kernel mode, even in my dreams

Eat sleep breath speak writing all the time
Structs loops data types always on my mind

Then it's kicked to the curb, "you're not welcome here today"
But this is what they made so I couldn't walk away

Looking down the road seeing exponential users
Figured I’d invest since computers are the future

Learn from the past so I studied all manoeuvres
Tightened up the OPSEC, patching like it's sutures

Feel I got the short end sharpened with the blade
Minimum in wage while the criminals get paid

Justified the raise compensating and betrayed
Cause fear is too expensive, the cost to be afraid

The dangers of incentive and a motive in the mixture
I'm hearing "farewell", well now there's just Viktor


[Chorus]

One more story, one more hacker
Back to the past when the path got fractured

Sometimes calm, sometimes disaster
“Turn the page and we start another chapter”

Just another story, just another hacker
Just another past, up until it shattered

Sometimes calm, sometimes disaster
“Turn the page and we start another chapter”
