Deep in the bowels of this dungeon we creep
For we dare not awaken the beast within
Darkness lingers around every corner
Our lights fade with each passing hour

What would bring a motley crew to this dreadful place?
For a fistful of gold we put our lives at stake
For the ladies we tell of our tales over a flagon of ale
For the good of the people, may they slumber well

What great hunt can there be for the heros three
A dwarf who has lost his way
An elf who comes for love
And a human searching for peace

The hunt of a tale as old as time itself
The hunt for a dragon...

Too long has this beast laid waste to this place
Too long have the people suffered under it's thumb
The time has come to smite a dragon

Surprise on our side we slink through this cave
It descends for what feels like forever
It isn't the silence that causes us to worry
It'll be the beating of wings...

As a foul stench permeates the air
We know we're close to it's lair
The sounds of deep breaths can be heard
Now is our chance, while it's at peace in slumber

A cast of a spell
A swing of a sword
The drop of a hammer
And things begin to sunder

A bone chilling roar is echoed
Throughout these cave-like halls
The sound of screaming is heard
As too late we realized our mistake

A moments glance is all that we have
To express how we feel for one another
Until this dragons breath surely takes us

A human lay burning with peace of mind
Having upheld his oath true and kind

A dwarf lies molten on the floor
He's found his way back to the stone

The elf laid to rest as a chard crisp
For dying with loved ones is all that she wished
