The World is saved - IGN's Podcast Beyond

Hoy quiero dejaros por aquí una canción que busca convertirse en himno para los gamers. Yo creo que es un listón demasiado alto pero quien sabe, igual lo consigue porque la verdad es que la canción está bien hecha.
La ha realizado el IGN's Podcast Beyond, una colaboración entre diferentes personas de IGN.

The world is saved...

The living room is dark save for light being cast
From the big tv screen and the imminent sunrise
That is teasing the once-starry sky
With whispers of morning

You sit there, alone, in your one-bedroom flat
You stare straight ahead with controller in hand
And you marvel at, yes, you did it, you made it,
Game over

And the world is saved, thanks to you
The people pray for a hero and you answered the call
And you did a good job, you gave it your best,
And you are proud of yourself though a little depresed
That the world is saved

You stocked and prepared. you slept at the inn.
Your whole inventory was packed going in
With equipment and items designed
To turn man into legend

You sigh, satisfied, as a cutscene presents
The kind of conclusion you kind of expected;
The people are smiling, the sunshine has returned,
It's... perfect

But you can not help thinking on what is coming next
Got work in the morning and your body is upset
With your general lack of paying any attention

Your stomach is empty, your body is tired,
It burns every time you try closing your eyes
And the dullest of pain has made camp
North of your cerebellum

But the world is saved, if you like
The hero hangs up his sword as he says his goodbye.

But then where does he go? what does he do?
The adventure is over, so where does that leave you
When the world is saved?

The curtain falls. the music plays. the credits roll and it all fades to black...

And you're left by yourself
The fanfare is gone
There is no player 2 there by your side
To share victories won

But as you slowly progress
Down the hall to your bed,
A few great events
Leak back into your head

From the time that you spent
Traversing the land,
Battling evil, fighting the darkness,
Just sword in hand

Your memories creep in
With the edge of a smile
You realize again
What you lost for a while

You are going to think back much less
On how you saved the day
Than on all
The experience gained

At the end of it all,
Gamers play what we play
Not for game over,
But rather for what we take away!

The world is saved
But who cares!
We both know that that's not what you came for

Your next adventure is already in sight
And you are all set to go
You are axcited to see what is all wrong 'till it is right
And the world is saved...

Though you're more along for a ride
(the world is saved)
You're more along for a ride
(the world is saved)
You're more along for a ride
(the world is saved)
You're more along for a ride
