You can't see the demons
Till the demons come calling for you
You're deaf to them screaming
Till they're standing right behind you
Blind to flames glowing
Till thy're growing all around you
Numb to fangs gripping
Until they're ripping into you

You're miles from safe harbor
Run, run, run, run, run away
The fire has reached starboard

On the Queen Anne's Revenge
Skull and bones and a serpent's head
Are dancing with the madmen
On the Queen Anne's Revenge
Have a gargle with your demons and me

Walked the plank of SS Seasick
Survived to only continue the curse
Marooned on a small sandy island
With neither bird, beast nor herb
Drums started beating
None there but the sun and the flu
An the horns of the demon
No time to decide what to do

You have to do things your own way
Run, run, run, run, run away
You'll have to find out the hard way

On the Queen Anne's Revenge
Skull and bones and a serpent's head
Are dancing with the madmen
On the Queen Anne's Revenge
Have a gargle with your demons and me

Drums started beating
None there but the sun and the flu
You can't see the demons
Untill the demons come calling for you

On the Queen Anne's Revenge
Skull and bones and a serpent's head
Are dancing with the madmen
On the Queen Anne's Revenge
Have a gargle with your demons and me

    General Commenti knew this would be the best song on the album before i even heard it. any song whos title is the name of Blackbeard's flagship has to kick ass.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that this verse:

    On the Queen Anne's Revenge
    Skull and bones and a serpent's head
    Are dancing with the madmen
    On the Queen Anne's Revenge
    Have a gargle with your demons and me

    Is a reference to Blackbeard's flag, which was a devil (madman, or demon) with a glass and a spear in it hand. It also looks as if it could be dancing, especially if it was waving in the wind.
