Kiss the sand, praising the dry land he has found,
Everywhere on shore theres trasure all around.
Bury deep the horded loot far down below.
No man or god will ever take away the plunder.

He will find a cave to hide away the gold.
(Doomed to a desert isle)
All of the riches in his hands
(No living thing around).
But he will never leave the cave,
(Alone with bounty gold)
Something compels him to stay

Heaven or hell, time will tell
The captain thinks what will come of this
If this is the end, the gold must die with me
Delving underground, to his dismay
The captain finds a curse

The isle of eternal despair,
To spend eternity alone.
The isle of eternal despair,
With gold beyond his dreams.

What a sight that's sitting right before his eyes,
Anceint spoils of the pirates of the past,
Skeletons are sheathed in gold by candlelight.
Hunger sets buts he will guard the jewels forever

Now hes punished by the gods,
Forever pondering his greed.
But hes doomed to eternal life,
As a golden skeleton

The isle of eternal despair,
Doomed as his flesh begins to rot.
The isle of eternal despair,
Knowing he'll never really die.

As he decays into living, golden bones
Eyes open watching for the rest of his life.
