Geek Song #3: The Eye of the Kernel

by

The Eye of the Kernel

( Based on The Eye of the Tiger)

Risin’ up, back with the 1337
Played with time, took my chances
Gamed the system, now I’m back on my feet
Just a geek and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your “indie” for money
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must code just to keep them alive

It’s the eye of the kernel, it’s the code that we write
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known debugger stalks its prey in the night
And it’s watchin’ us all with the eye of the kernel…

Face to screen, code to the beat
Hackin’ lean, hackin’ dirty
The stack is odd still we’re scripting our deeds
Making code as a way to survive

It’s the eye of the kernel, it’s the code that we write
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known debugger stalks its prey in the night
And it’s watchin’ us all with the eye of the kernel…

Risin’ up, straight to the top
Had the scripts, got the glory
Wrote the software, now I’m not gonna stop
Just a geek and his will to survive

It’s the eye of the kernel, it’s the code that we write
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known debugger stalks its prey in the night
And it’s watchin’ us all with the eye of the kernel…

The eye of the kernel…

(With apologies to Survivor)
