sailing on the seven seas
searching for my destiny
facing trouble endlessly
with my first mate next to me
plunder, murder, villainy
conquering the open seas
salty air meets treachery
that's the pirate life for me

with a sword in my hand
and a knife in my back
my brother and i
went on the attack
went out for treasure
came back with a head
be quick on the seas
or you're better off dead
show respect
earn your rank
fuck it up
and you'll walk the plank

yo ho!

raise a mug and drink my ale
a final day and we'll set sail
off we go, we wave farewell
what will our next quest entail?
tonight the air's a violent gale
cold as ice we dare not fail
the wind out here oh how it wails
out here dead men tell no tales

    General CommentReally, we just wanted a song about pirates.

    The name came around pretty easily. Lee suggested it, and it stuck. I'm happy with it.
