Slacker
Written by James Bourne/Chris Leonard

My friend's a computer hacker
But in school everybody said he was a slacker
He writes science fiction novels
He builds whole towns and villages from cola bottles

He does equations just for fun
Eats low carb ice cream with his mum
Sews cub scout badges on his sweater

He's just a feeling you ignore, a dumb computer hacker
Trashcan on the floor, a pitiful disaster
Cried to sleep at night when he never got it right
Cause he never realised, it doesn't even matter
Later on in life, he's drowning in his laughter
Three kids and a wife, he's happy ever after
Stoked to be alive, with his dream job up at Nasa
Loving every day
Well I guess it really pays to be a slacker

He stays up all night playing tetris
Asteroids, Pacman, written on his 'games to get' list
(Wasted) Wasted nights (nights) spent up in his bedroom
Tough times, long nights, must have been a lot to get through

He's getting sharp pains in his wrist
In his world, girlfriends don't exist
Can't even get an add on MySpace

He's just a feeling you ignore, a dumb computer hacker
Trashcan on the floor, a pitiful disaster
Cried to sleep at night when he never got it right
Cause he never realised, it doesn't even matter
Later on in life, he's drowning in his laughter
Three kids and a wife, he's happy ever after
Stoked to be alive, with his dream job up at Nasa
Loving every day
Well I guess it really pays to be a slacker

He's the one all alone in despair
He's the one who thinks life isn't fair
He's the one sitting right over there
He's the lonely guy, on the side, looking kind of shy
You could see him ride, passing by, on a pedal bike
He's a funny type, kinda like Napoleon Dynamite

He's just a feeling you ignore, a dumb computer hacker
Trashcan on the floor, a pitiful disaster
Cried to sleep at night when he never got it right
Cause he never realised, it doesn't even matter
Later on in life, he's drowning in his laughter
Three kids and a wife, he's happy ever after
Stoked to be alive, with his dream job up at Nasa
Loving every day
Well I guess it really pays to be a slacker, yeah
Pays to be a slacker, yeah
