original music and lyrics written by Jim Steinman

I’ve been looking for the Fifth Edition
Fourth with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I’ve done all of the old ones
‘Till they’ve all been done in
Now I’m just looking
Then I’m gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for the Fifth Edition

I can talk about Linked
And never draw the line
But will it ever be enough
I know that it’ll never be enough
I can argue the cost of DEX
And say the cost is just fine
But will it ever be enough?
I know that it’ll never be enough

It’s not enough to make the debates go away
It’s not enough to rewrite the rules
It’s not enough to play a little bit better every day
It’s a system of house rules opened up to debate
It’s a system with problems that complicate
But it’ll all be over now!

All I wanted was an end to our plight
Common rules we all could share
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The gamers are so restless tonight
All I needed was an end to the fight
Or something new we could discuss
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The gamers are so restless tonight

I’ve been looking for the ultimate game
Infinite genres with the rules all the same
And I’m very frustrated
And there’s no one to blame
So now I’m just looking
And I’m going insane
Endless searching for the ultimate game

I can drown myself in house rules
‘Till my mind is going numb
But will it ever be enough?
I know that it’ll never be enough
I can always make whatever
Changes I could want
But will it ever be enough?
I know that it will never be enough

It’s not enough to make the debates go away
It’s not enough to rewrite the rules
It’s not enough to play a little bit better every day
It’s a system of house rules opened up to debate
It’s a system with problems that complicate
But it’ll all be over now!

All I wanted was an end to our plight
Common rules we all could share
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The gamers are so restless tonight
All I needed was an end to the fight
Or something new we could discuss
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The gamers are so restless tonight

I’ve been looking for the Fifth Edition
Fourth with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I’ve done all of the old ones
‘Till they’ve all been done in
Now I’m just looking
Then I’m gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for the Fifth Edition
