The Day The Santas Died

Sung to the tune of "American Pie" by Don McLean -

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how
Dream World used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could finally cap my stats
If the devs left Santa for a while

Oh February gave me thrills
With each 24 Santa kills
No free box every hour
My character swelled with power

I can't remember if I cried
When my quest for Santas was denied
Luck was just not on my side
The day the Santas died
So

Bye, bye Santa who's not a guy
Just logged on to get my boxes but the boxes were gone
Just might quit this damn game and get movin' on
Beats slowly watching Dream World die
We're all just watching Dream World die

Do you believe in William Ren
Or will this game abruptly end
They refuse to tell us so.
Why will they let us end this way?
Losing revenue from Trialpay
And they're too busy with Dragon Era, don't you know?

We should have known that this was it
When Syzygy and others quit
Such a load of horse crap
To not remove the stat cap

Dream World has began to suck
Mired down in its own muck
And more of us don't give a fuck
The day the Santas died
I started singin'

Bye, bye Santa who's not a guy
Just logged on to get my boxes but the boxes were gone
Just might quit this damn game and get movin' on
Beats slowly watching Dream World die
We're all just watching Dream World die

Now, for a year we've been on our own
Wei Ren won't throw us a bone
But, that's not how it used to be

Things were better before the terror
That thing that they call Dragon Era
And gems were bought by you and me

But now the game is falling down
No one can compete for our town
The demon gates have burned
Less money Dream World earns

Now Syzygy plays other games
Less kicking ass and taking names
All the guilds were losing fame
The day the Santas died
We were singin'

Bye, bye Santa who's not a guy
Just logged on to get my boxes but the boxes were gone
Just might quit this damn game and get movin' on
Beats slowly watching Dream World die
We're all just watching Dream World die

Sittin' round and feeling bored
Gems piled up like a dragon's hoard
Seems the end has come at last

It's turned into a pile of rubble
Half the players just can't be troubled
Killing monsters just gets old fast

The end days air is filled with gloom
As players shamble to their tombs
No more killing in a trance
Without that Santas chance

The players tried to beg for change
The devs were acting very strange
They'd rather code another game
The day the Santas died
We started singin'

Bye, bye Santa who's not a guy
Just logged on to get my boxes but the boxes were gone
Just might quit this damn game and get movin' on
Beats slowly watching Dream World die
We're all just watching Dream World die

The game's become a quiet place
Never see a newbie face
Nobody's ever gonna start again

Once Dream World was fun and hot
Dream World got left to rot
'Cause money is Playmage's only friend

Now Dragon Era is center stage
Devs don't listen to our rage
No amount of Dream World kills
Can top those dollar bills

Fifty dollars for a couple cards
While Dream World is collapsing hard
I knew the devs were just retards
The day the Santas died
They were singin'

Bye, bye Santa who's not a guy
Just logged on to get my boxes but the boxes were gone
Just might quit this damn game and get movin' on
Beats slowly watching Dream World die
We're all just watching Dream World die

Now lest you think I sing the blues
We asked the devs for expansion news
But they said nothing and turned away

I clicked over to the guardian's store
Where I'd bought gems for years before
But simply couldn't bring myself to pay

And on the forums the players screamed
Some folks quit, while others dreamed
But no dev words was spoken
Communication's broken

And the three things the boxes contained
Alien junk, coins, and dust, so profane
Will be the legacy of this game
The day the Santas died
And they were singing

Bye, bye Santa who's not a guy
Just logged on to get my boxes but the boxes were gone
Just might quit this damn game and get movin' on
Beats slowly watching Dream World die
We're all just watching Dream World die

They were singing
Bye, bye Santa who's not a guy
Just logged on to get my boxes but the boxes were gone
Just might quit this damn game and get movin' on
Beats slowly watching Dream World die

I wish I had your way with words, Solomon Grundy. I just know that trying to find all the santas had a lot of us playing more. Almost made it a little easier to forget that we haven't seen an update in almost a year, there's not been any hints and it seems like the devs just ignore us when we ask if there's going to be an update. I enjoy playing this game and remember when the devs seemed to care about it too. :(
