Facts:
  • Parody of "Life is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back" by Meat Loaf (DJ Particle)
  • This song was written in response to the announcement on August 31st by NCSoft that it would be discontinuing development on City of Heroes, shutting down the servers November 30th 2012 and immediately firing the entire development studio (Putting 80 people on the street without notice). The Player Base of the game has banded together in an effort to try and save this still profitable ($800,000-$1,000,000/year by NCSoft’s own financial disclosures.) game by getting NCSoft to sell the hosting and IP rights to a third party or to the Player Base itself. Intrigued? Want to know more? Please go to SaveCoH.com or CoHTitan.com to see what the effort’s all about. (CameraGuy)
  • Song Lyrics:
    “I Want My City Back” – parody of Meat Loaf “Life Is a Lemon (And I Want My Money Back)”

    I want my City back
    I want my City back

    [Par - a – gon]

    I am a hero
    In a city under siege
    Every time I turn it on
    I can be who I want to be

    There’s always someone
    Someone there to save the day
    That's the only guarantee
    What being a hero’s all about

    It was an unprovoked attack
    Worse than the Rikti, that’s a fact
    [They try to kill it, but I want my City back!]

    There’s all the stories
    And all the heroes we have known
    They’re the ones who save the day
    It’s not just a game this is about

    Then there are villains [Then there are villains]
    Willing to take up the cause
    To stand beside their mortal foes
    To fight the threat that’s come about

    And we won’t sit still for this attack [No way]
    A force of evil, clad in black.
    [They try to kill it, but I want my City back!]

    [I want my City back]
    [I want my City back]

    Paragon City
    [We are heroes!]
    We’ll defend it to the last

    And the Rouge Isles
    [We are Villains!]
    Our resolve is unsurpassed

    What about history?
    [We are heroes!]
    All the tales we have wrought

    What about your friends?
    [We are heroes!]
    Side-by-side, never forgot

    What about hope?
    [We are Villains!]
    We’ve been sold out and betrayed

    What about conquest?
    [We are Villains!]
    We are joining this crusade

    What about the odds?
    [We are heroes!]
    Remember, this is what we do

    What about your town?
    [We are heroes!]
    And we’re going to see this through

    What about evil?
    [We are Villains!]
    It’s no good without the prize

    What about destruction?
    [We are Villains!]
    You can’t rule it if it dies

    What about the shutdown?
    [We are heroes!]
    It’s against this we’re amassed

    What about the future?
    [We are heroes!]
    This is a challenge we’ll surpass!!

    [I want my City back (They try to kill it)]
    [I want my City back (They try to kill it, they try to kill it)]

    I am a hero
    In a city under siege
    Everytime I turn it on
    I can be who I want to be

    It was an unprovoked attack
    Worse than the Rikti, that’s a fact
    [They try to kill it, but I want my City back!]

    And we won’t sit still for this attack [No way]
    A force of evil, clad in black.
    [They try to kill it, but I want my City back!]

    City of Heroes!!!!

    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.
    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.
    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.
    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.


    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.
    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.
    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.
    They try to kill it, but I want my city back.
