lyrics

deep down, underground in the nerd cave.
i heard you hate math, so let's channel your nerd rage.
here is your seat, here's your character sheet.
meet the other players as i lay down the beat.
and we'll order the pizza, bust open the freezer.
grab a beer and pencil and whatever you need, man.
mi casa es suya! booyeah!
you wanna kick a little ass?
i can give that to ya.

so it begins, just friends kickin' back
and chillin' and killin' some dragons.
keeping it light, 'cuz a fight's
not quite as tight as a night full of laughing.
saved the day of course; that's what you came for.
you had the time of your life
when you thought you'd be bored.
nerds are just people who like stuff.
and we don't give a fuck.

so put your hands up if you know what you like.
just roll the die! choose your next move, and roll the die!
everything will be all right.
just put your hands up, we are living the life.
just roll the die! be who you want to be, and roll the die!
and we can go all night.

saving other worlds isn't all we do;
there's a slough of other parties you are welcome to come to!
we bond at cons and fawn over joss whedon.
i've heard most nerds are best friends with wil wheaton!
what we have in common is that we're passionate
about whatever it is that really makes us tick,
be it science or movies or music or art,
and we'll discuss over a tournament of mario kart (woohoo!)

we live on the fringe, form a massive community.
other people choose sports as their source of unity.
haters hate 'cuz we graduated with honors,
unless you're like me - school didn't have much to offer.
we read books 'til we knew more than the teachers that taught us.
not bragging, just tryin' to be honest.
so enjoy the game and your airbrushed girls -
we'll be over here, changing the world.

so put your hands up if you know what you like.
just roll the die! choose your next move, and roll the die!
everything will be all right.
just put your hands up, we are living the life.
just roll the die! be who you want to be, and roll the die!
and we can go all night.

some of us are trying to escape all of our problems
with icosahedron dice. go on and roll 'em if you got 'em!
in these faraway lands filled with crazy fucking magic
we can master, besting foes both evil and gigantic
with fire and appropriate attire. we're ladies and sires,
from the spires of the castle to the mires of wires
crammed behind our desks. we're the best.
we can't rest 'til we fill our minds,
find every last chest.

everybody's searching for the thing that gives their life
some sort of meaning in the dark, a sort of spark or
warm and fuzzy feeling; elder gods, general zod or
something else that needs defeating in our lives,
true or lie; a reason to keep breathing.
we discovered it in science, in a beautiful alliance
of fiction and fact. so relax, we got your back.

so put your hands up if you know what you like.
just roll the die! choose your next move, and roll the die!
everything will be all right.
just put your hands up, we are living the life.
just roll the die! be who you want to be, and roll the die!
and we can go all night.

so put your hands up and get into the fight.
just roll the die! choose your next move, and roll the die!
everything will be all right.
just put your hands up, you were destined to fly.
just roll the die! be who you want to be, and roll the die!
and we can go all night.
