The Captain sold a lie
His crew is ready to die
To find the Spanish ship and begin

A brand new life with gold and wine

Wind at our back
All together we will stand!

There is a treasure within sight
Raise your glass, Black Sails will rise!
Fortuna will lead us
In our fight

Over the Seven Seas we ride
Raise your glass, Black Sails will rise!
We are raiders on high waves
You'd better run and save your lives!

It's time to drop the anchor
They found the Golden boat
The final fight is lying ahead
And a new legend will arise!

Wind at our back
All together we will stand!

There is a treasure within sight
Raise your glass, Black Sails will rise!
Fortuna will lead us
In our fight

Over the Seven Seas we ride
Raise your glass, Black Sails will rise!
We are raiders on high waves
You'd better run and save your lives!

There is a treasure within sight
Raise your glass, Black Sails will rise!
Fortuna will lead us
In our fight

Over the Seven Seas we ride
Raise your glass, Black Sails will rise!
We are raiders on high waves
You'd better run and save your lives!

    My InterpretationA prequel to the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel "Treasure Island," "Black Sails" was a pirate adventure TV series set in 1917 that centered on the tales of Captain Flint, who has a reputation throughout the West Indies as being the most brilliant, most feared of all the Golden Age pirates. I think this song was inspired by that story.
