Caiger Zombie Free is a set of lyrics for a song composed by Specialist290 and to the melody of the Beatles' single Yellow Submarine. The song was originally composed in late February of 2006 in hopes of being adopted as the CMS's Unofficial Alternative Mall Defence Song, but it never seems to have really caught on anywhere except in its composer's imagination. It is notable as being one of only a few songs yet composed specifically for Urban Dead known to be published on the Internet thus far (others include "Marrh Zahrh" for Mall Tour '06, Off to Tompson in the Blue for the Mall of that name, and three compositions by the Upper Left Corner, specifically "One," "Zombie Man," and "Zombie Girl").

The Lyrics

Caiger Zombie-Free
(To the tune of "Yellow Submarine," by the Beatles)

In the town where zombies roam was a man who came to me,
And he told us of his dream of a land that's zombie-free
So we wandered through the Heights, 'till we saw a sea of green,
And we build our barricades to keep Caiger zombie-free,

We all fight keeping Caiger zombie-free,
Caiger zombie-free, Caiger zombie free.
We all fight keeping Caiger zombie free,
Caiger zombie-free, Caiger zombie-free.

And our friends are all indoors;
Many more of them live next door.
And the band begins to play:
(sound of the Caiger Mall Upper Left Corner Marching Band playing the refrain)

We all fight keeping Caiger zombie-free,
Caiger zombie-free, Caiger zombie-free.
We all fight keeping Caiger zombie-free,
Caiger zombie-free, Caiger zombie-free.

(instrumental; sounds of barricades being reinforced, random Survivor chatter, the Channel 4 News Team daily report, gunshots, zombie noises, etc.)

As we fight to keep our Mall,
Every one of us has all we need:
Sky of blue and sea of green
Keeping Caiger zombie-free,

We all fight keeping Caiger zombie-free,
Caiger zombie-free, Caiger zombie-free.
We all fight keeping Caiger zombie-free,
Caiger zombie-free, Caiger zombie-free.
(Repeat last 4 lines several times until either people get tired of it or zombies breach the barricades)

Composer's Note: The "sea of green" can be regarded as a reference either to zombie blood, which may or may not be green, or to the zombies themselves, who are often portrayed in art media as being either greenish or greyish in color. Another possible interpretation for "sea of green" would refer to the Suburb Color-Coded Danger Reports, in which "green" indicates "safe"--something that Caiger Mall was almost perpetually for survivors until the Third Siege.
