Well it's a God damn shame what's goin' down
How we got to this I do not know
There's a sick sick wind that's blowin' 'round
And the captain's got to go

About you or me he does not give a damn
What a low down dirty snake
With his mind on his money and his money on his mind
Well something's got to break

Like when the hounds start howlin' (When the hounds start howlin')
When there's fiends abound (When there's fiends abound)
I will stand up and shout:
I declare mutiny on this ship

Well the captain's been drinkin' below the deck
And this vessel's headed way off course
I want to wrap my hands around his crooked neck
And throw him overboard

Send him to his Lord
Send him to his Lord

No I don't want to be saved
No I just want to be free
And take back what these old devils have taken from me

I don't want to be saved
Oh I just want to be free
And take back what these old devils have taken from me

Like when the hounds start howlin' (When the hounds start howlin')
When there's fiends abound (When there's fiends abound)
I will stand up and shout:
I declare mutiny on this ship

I said I declare mutiny on this ship

Well the captain's been drinkin' below the deck
And this vessel's headed way off course
I want to wrap my hands around his crooked neck
And throw him overboard

Send him to his Lord
Send him to his Lord

I want to send him back to where he came
Not to mercy no, but to burnin' flame

I said he don't need no water (He don't need no water)
Well let the motherfucker burn (Let the motherfucker burn)
I said he don't need to water (He don't need no water)
Well let the motherfucker burn (Let the motherfucker burn)
Well burn motherfucker burn
Well burn motherfucker burn

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs off the new album.
    To me I think that its a song about a person who is just sick and tired of someone [the captain in the song for example] who keeps telling them what to do and he does not care a damn about you. So he declares mutiny against the captain, rebelling against him etc., etc.,
    my favorite part is when they sing "He don't need no water; Let the motherfucker burn" haha
