"Rum Is For Drinking, Not For Burning" as written by and Garrett Michael Zablocki David Michael Miller....
This captain goes down with the ship
All hands on deck, stand hip-to-hip
I shout the orders, "Shoot to kill!"
I'm dressed to thrill,
I'm dressed to thrill.

And all my enemies,
I want their eyes to see,
Their captain walk the plank
Destroy them, rank by rank.

Sail with me into the setting sun
The battle has been won, but war has just begun
And as we grow, emotion starts to die,
We need to find a way, just to keep our desire alive.

Now set the sail to quarter mast,
We'll jump the ship, we'll sink 'em fast.
Men follow me to victory,
Red as the sea,
Red as the sea.

And to the cannons roar,
Their bodies dance ashore,
A pirate's life for me,
I won't go quietly.

Sail with me into the setting sun
The battle has been won, but war has just begun
And as we float, emotion starts to die,
We need to find a way, just to keep our desires alive.

And to my damsel in distress,
You've made a mess of your new dress
You've made a mess of your new dress

Sail with me into the setting sun
The battle has been won, but war has just begun
And as we float, emotion starts to die,
We need to find a way, just to keep our desires alive.

Just to keep our desires alive.

    General CommentI think this song as about the trials of marriage...at least the chorus.

    Sail with me into the setting sun
    The battle has been won
    But war has just begun

    *Basically he says marry him..they got through the hard stuff but there will be more to come

    And as we float
    emotions start to die
    we need to find a way
    just to keep our desires alive

    *Basically as they are along for the ride their love for one another is not as prominent as it once was. They need to find some sort of way to keep their love for one another alive...could also be talking about their sex life.

    And to my damsel in distress,
    You've made a mess of your new dress.
    You've made a mess of your new dress.
    You've made a mess!

    *more proof that the woman just got married in her new dress...

    Not sure what the rest of the song is about though, but those parts sure seemed like it was about marriage.
