icon Songs of the Eighth (+1)  
In June 2004, we had this contest where fans wrote lyrics to songs in DROD. It was great--you shoulda been there! Well, maybe you were there, and if so, you know exactly what I'm talking about, right? Below you will find lyrics and in many cases recorded audio of DROD-related songs. By the way, if anybody else has a DROD song, you are just about guaranteed to make it onto this page--just post your song on the message board.

The Whistler
By Erik Hermansen
For whistler.s3m from Caravel DROD. Lyrics correspond to melody part that starts in after 12 seconds.
Hear it!

If you die
It is not the end yet
Please don't cry
You can start again--just say when

If you die
I can pull some strings, cause
I'm the guy
That will fix it right back again

(instrumental 24 seconds)

Don't ask why
But I have this job to
Restore life
And without restraint. No complaint.

But please try
Try to make it worthwhile
You can't buy
Any better place or better time.

I'd be you
And I'd take your spot but
I can't do
All your special tricks. I just fix the

Stupid mess
You are bound to make, so
I suggest
Use that ugly head. Live instead.

When you fall, it's not always so fair
At your call, the Whistler will be there.
Death and all, the Whistler can repair.
He's your friend. The last one to care.

Don't remember
All you lost and just what it cost you
Start your gift life
No regrets and no debts to pay back

But remember
Your mistakes and just what it takes to
Make your progress
Deeper and down until you reach the end

(instrumental 40 seconds)

If you die
It will be too early
Please comply
Please just stand up in the boots again

I deny
Your fake death slumber
You can try
But it wastes my time, so give it up.

When you die,
You're just being lazy
Shouldn't lie
Underneath the ground with worms around.

So stop dying now.

Straight Jacket Delver
settledown.s3m - Caravel DROD

sung like an over-tired goth kid with laryngitis.
Hear it!

0:18 - You can't know what I've seen...
0:26 - You weren't where I have been...

0:51 - King Dugan's majesty...
0:58 - 'Neather's fatality...

1:05 - In that hole, I had seen such vile things.
1:13 - Now I fear, haunted by my own breath-ing.

1:21 - Pale sharp teeth, tearing flesh from the bone.
1:29 - Glaring eyes, making me long for home... home.

1:54 - The black wings from afar...
2:03 - The living, growing tar...

2:26 - The goblins after me...
2:34 - And critters I can't see...

2:41 - Crimson tails, I could not even fight.
2:49 - Neuron blobs, Omnipresent delight... Right!

2:57 - Now I'm here, padded walls to my cell.
3:05 - Rooted Hold? There is more to that hell?... Swell.

Deadly Rooms of Death
set to the Webfoot title music
Music by Lars Kristian Aasbrenn
Lyrics by RoboBob3000
Hear it!

(0:01)
Where did my life go?
I lost it to this
Where did my life go?
I lost it to this

(0:40)
D-R-O-D dot net
Have to say I downloaded it
One install would probably change my life for good
When I started
I knew it was just a game
It stole my brain and I was never the same
All the roaches singÖ

(1:06)
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death
Beethroís in a mess
Monsters to his neck
Take that sword you heft
Swing it right and left
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death

(1:19)
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death
Is it over yet?
Twenty levels left
Stop and take a breath
Then get on with it
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death

(1:33)
I kept starting over
Lost the month of October
And everyone kept telling me to get up from my chair
But I didnít
That was the way things were to be
And all my friends they gave up on me
All the mimics singÖ

(1:59)
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death
Guaranteed youíll get
Lots more blood for less
Grab your washcloths, yes
Itís a gruesome mess
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death

(2:12)
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death
I can take a rest
Finally managed it
Heíll be so impressed
Duganís so in debt
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death

(2:29)
Letís break it down for a bitÖ
(Instrumental)

(2:52)
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death
Iím one of the vets
Song participant
Fifty rank points gets
Forum prominence
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death

(3:05)
Deadly Rooms of Death
Deadly Rooms of Death
I am of the best
I am so obsessed
Tattoos on my chest
Need to be confessed
Deadly Rooms of Death
Theyíre the deadliest

I Am the Smitemaster
lev5-awe.mid/lev5-awe.ogg
Music by Lars Kristian Aasbrenn
Lyrics by Wesley Chua
Images showing arrangement

Introduction (0:10)
I am the Smitemaster.

Link passage 1 (0:24)
Deep under the Eighth I smite
The creatures of dungeon death.

Link passage 2 (0:56)
Far from light, they snap and bite,
And I pause, holding my breath.

"Verse" 1 (1:18 )
Then I swing forth,
They turn to froth.
The horde recedes,
And they soon face defeat.

"Chorus" 1 (2:00)
They all die, I am victorious!
The green door opens, and I go through.

Link passage 3 (2:21)
In the next room there are more,
Queens making roaches galore.

"Verse" 2 (2:43)
Hundreds spawning,
They come surging.
I move into
An alcove to break through.

"Chorus" 2 (3:25)
There I kill them so efficiently,
The room clears quickly; I am finished.

"Chorus" 3 and 4 (4:09)
Another room drowned in thick blue Tar,
It grows and engulfs me soon after.
But I stand so Tar Babies can't form,
Then I rush to kill the Tar Mother.

Major link passage (4:51)
I must continue to do my job,
Through day and night, I can never stop
Facing death constantly to protect the
Eighthers that live peacefully above me.

"Chorus" 5 and 6 (5:12)
Brains find me quickly and send the hordes,
But I face them and smite them faster.
However monsters make their attack,
I shall not fall; I am the Smitemaster.

Dungeon Danger
Music - Erik Hermansen
Lyrics - Patrick Fisher
File - TheSpaces.s3m/Dungeon Danger.mp3
Hear it!

0:04 Dungeon time; itís dungeon time; itís dungeon time; itís dungeon time;
0:12 Dungeon time; itís dungeon time; itís dungeon time; itís dungeon time;

0:16 Walking down that dungeon hallway,
Walls on all four sides of me
Walking down that dungeon hallway,
Worrying when Iíll be free

0:33 What can I do now?
Where can I go?
What can I do now?
Iíll fight, Iíll fight!

0:48 King Dugan waits now,
Roaches I must kill.

1:04 Spiders, snakes,
Evil tar, tar babies, goblins too
Are waiting there for me,

1:12 With my sword,
I want them, out of here, out of sight,
Out of mind, but there are

1:20 Spiders, snakes,
Evil tar, tar babies, goblins too
Theyíre waiting there for me,

1:28 With my sword,
I want them, out of here, out of sight,
Out of mind, I want them
GONE!

[Instrumental]

2:08 I am here, waiting [2X]

2:24 Dark and cold
I am here, fighting them, with my sword,
They never go away

2:32 All of this,
For a king, barely seems worth the risk,
Yet I do it still, now.

2:40 Dark and cold
I am here, fighting them, with my sword,
They never go away

2: 48 Dark and cold.
I live.

(Instrumental)

4:00 Why must I live with it?
Will I live right through it?
How will I get through it?
Why must I go do it?
(Repeated till song end)

DROD Jambouree
Music - Emmett Plant
Lyrics - Patrick Fisher

-All note corrispond to the piano\\instrument that does the melody. All verses have the same melody, so I only wrote exact times for the first verse, then on top I put the starting time for each verse(the second one is the repeat time)...Any questions on melody just ask me...it's a very fast song and is hard to write exact times for...sorry!

(Verse 1 - Serpents)
0.07 Red Serpent
0.10 So long
0.12 Twistin' round the place

0.16 Three walls are surrounding you, there's
0.17 No way out (Hold note)
(x2)

0.35,
(Chorus)
0.35 Here they come
0.36 Coming towards me with no..o..o escape
0.39 I just cannot run
0.42 What can I do?
0.43 Monsters are at all four sides of me
0.49 They are trapping me
0.50 I must leave this place right now..ow but my job...
0.54 My orders
0.56 Say otherwise
0.57 How can I leave this place alive?

1.02, 1.16

While I sneak up right behind you
To your death (hold note)

1.31 - (Bridge)

1:44, 1:58
(Verse 3 - Tar)
Living Tar

3:08, 3:22
(Verse 5)
Rooted Hold

Monsters unheard of...
Wait
For me to enter
And experience the madness
Challenging! (Hold note)
(x2)

-This verse I made after looking at the Beta test gag on the news forum(I was a victim...) I decided to make us our own Easter Egg for the next version of DROD
(Just like Matt promised!)

(Gag Verse(Replace verse 5 if wanted))

Rooted Hold
We want
Let us beta test...
Please?
Let us play it now
For we are really anxious and....
April Fools!(Hold note)
(x2)
