Dead Space - Ring Around the Rosie

Ring Around the Rosie is a nursery rhyme, a more eerie version of which is used in the marketing for Dead Space 2. The song, however, was not added into the final build of the game.

Lyrics Edit

Ring around the rosie
Pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes
We all fall down

Ring around the rosie
What do you suppose we
can do to fight the darkness
in which we drown?

Ring around the rosie
This evil thing, it knows me
Lost ghosts surround me
I can't fall down

Trivia Edit

  • Unlike Dead Space, where "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" is played by leaving the game idle on the 'press start' screen, Ring Around The Rosie can not be heard in any content of Dead Space 2.
  • A popular, and false, belief regarding the base rhyme is that it originated in/described one of the various plagues which struck pre-Industrial Europe (most commonly the Black Plague of the 1300s); however, this belief is apocryphal and though the precise origins of the rhyme are still debated, the notion it originated from the Black Plague has been thoroughly discredited.
