“After searching far, and searching wide. Past the shifting stars, and flowing tides. The answers not found in the heavens above - the wisdom I seek, the knowledge I bespeak, the answers profound as the questions thereof.”

Track Name: Hook The Plank
LEGENDS HAVE BEEN TOLD
OF A PIRATE CREW SO BOLD
THEY SAILED INTO THE UNDERWORLD
TO PLUNDER THE DEVIL'S GOLD
SO THE LEGEND CLAIMS
THAT THE WATERS WERE NEVER THE SAME
ALL THE CURSED TREASURE
THEY TOOK WHEREVER
THEY WENT MADE THEM INSANE

LEGENDS HAVE BEEN TOLD
OF THE PIRATE'S SINS OF OLD
THEY SAILED INTO THE UNDERWORLD
TO RECRUIT FORGOTTEN SOULS
SO THE LEGEND STANDS
THAT THE CREW WAS HEADED FOR LAND
WHEN THEY ARRIVE YOU FIGHT OR FLY
THEY SPARE NO WOMAN OR MAN

ACROSS THE OCEANS BLACK WE SAIL
SHROUD OF NIGHT WE WILL PREVAIL
A RESTLESS CREW FROM YEARS AT SEA
TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH THEY WILL FOLLOW ME
SO HOOK THE PLANK AROUND YOUR NECK
SWIM FOR SHORE AND DON'T LOOK BACK
BURN THE SHIPS ON WHICH WE CAME
EITHER VICTORY OR DEATH BE THY NAME

SO IT CAME TO PASS
PIRATES BURNED OUR FLAGS HALF-MAST
THEY RANSACKED RAPED AND PILLAGED
AND IT ALL HAPPENED SO FAST
LEGENDS HAVE BEEN SEEN
OF THE PIRATE CREW SO MEAN
THEY REVELED IN DESTRUCTION
OF THE VILLAGE ONCE SERENE

AND SO THE STORY GOES
WHEN THE RAIN CHANGES TO SNOW
AND THE FULL MOON RISES IN THE SKY
THEIR SHIP BRINGS DEATH IN TOW

ACROSS THE OCEANS RED WE SAIL
BLOODLUSTING WE WILL PREVAIL
A RESTLESS CREW FROM YEARS AT SEA
TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH THEY WILL FOLLOW ME
SO HOOK THE PLANK AROUND YOUR NECK
SWIM FOR SHORE AND DON'T LOOK BACK
BURN THE SHIPS ON WHICH WE CAME
EITHER VICTORY OR DEATH BE THY NAME
Track Name: Chipwrecked (Alestorm)
It's 3 years to the very day
Since a pirate captain said to me
Hey lad come join our crew
Adventure and glory waits for you!

I took his words as gold
Set sail for quests untold
With a bottle of rum in my hand
I dreamed of wealth and foreign lands!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked you will cease to be!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked your destiny!

On the 16th night at sea
In the depths of toil and misery
We struck a hidden reef
And our ship began to sink beneath

I grabbed some drifting wood
And held on as long as I could
'Til abandoned on a desert isle
Now stuck here 'til the day I die!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked you will cease to be!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked your destiny!

Shipwrecked!
Shipwrecked!
Get drunk or die!

Shipwrecked!
Shipwrecked!
Get drunk or die!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked you will cease to be!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked your destiny!
Track Name: Dreaded 8-Bit Skies (Lagerstein)
We’ve taken land before
we rule the entire sea
We’re venturing through new ground
to where the ground can not be seen

We’ve built a ship that will never touch sea
never get wet, never swim too deep
We’ve built a ship that can go anywhere
a ship that floats on air!

Bet you thought your jet was safe
but we can fucking fly!
Ground that bastard right away
we’re pirates of the skies

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
No! It’s a flying ship.
It sails upon the airways
goes wherever it sees fit.

We’ve built a ship that will never touch sea
never get wet, never swim too deep,
We’ve built a ship that can go anywhere,
a ship that floats on air!

Bet you thought the birds were safe
but we can fucking fly!
We’re cooking eagle for tea today
and I’ll tell you fucking why...

Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da
we’re all so fucking high
Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da
we’re pirates of the skies!

Man no flights, ground your planes
‘cause we can fucking fly,
Your aircraft is no longer safe
and I’ll tell you fucking why...

Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we’re all so fucking high,
Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we’re pirates of the skies!
Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we drink until we die
Ya-da-dadada-dah-da-da - we’re pirates of the skies!
Track Name: Cruise Bit Terror (Swashbuckle)
All aboard!

Swim for it. We stole your shit.
Satchels thick. Throats now slit.
No doubloons? Leave them marooned.
Checks and charges? What be this garbage?

Pearls and lace. Make no waste
Rum for taste. Loot with haste.

Party boat, party boat, party boat.
Vacation at the sea.
You've sailed uncharted waters.
Now you'll cease to be.
Party boat, party boat, party boat.
Nowhere near the land.
By the time they find you,
you'll have died by our hands.
CRUISE SHIP TERROR!

No survivors. Set it afire.
A burning mast. Now avast.
Our hull's full with valuables.
We'll sail away to loot more pay.

Take the women. Leave them frantic.
We are Swashbuckle. We sunk the Titanic.

Party boat, party boat, party boat.
Vacation at the sea.
You've sailed uncharted waters.
Now you'll cease to be.
Party boat, party boat, party boat.
Nowhere near the land.
By the time they find you,
you'll have died by our hands.
CRUISE SHIP TERROR!

Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho!
Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho!
Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho!
Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho!

WE STOLE YOUR SHIT!
Track Name: Binged And Bit-Purged (The Dread Crew Of Oddwood)
The night was filled with drink and song, with gambling and deceit
Pipes of wine were offered up to all who walked the street
Harlots latched on each our arms, drunk and full of meat
Let’s head back to the brothel for a little more to eat

The smells of sex and food and booze greeted as they passed
Tempting us with untold bliss, they knew our thirst was vast
We gathered ‘round a table where the liars dice were cast
This epic night would soon be gone and it would be our last

Our binge did carry on till the night became the day
Till all ill gotten riches were carelessly pissed away
As we staggered to our ship, the world began to shake
All around us brick and timber threatening to break.

Mouths of hell tore from the ground, whilst fire spewed from below
Divine wrath’s eyes set upon us all and our fear began to grow
We spent our days with no regret, living life in the afterglow
Now the Earth looks to consume us, we all reap what we sow

Sand and unpaved streets did rise and fall like violent waves
As buildings turned to rubble leaving many unmarked graves
Praying to be saved, towards the church we made to flee
But god’s house hath forsaken us, descending deep to sea

Mighty tremors came and went, spreading chaos and debris
As off the shore, the water swelled and leapt out of the sea
Ghastly tides attacked the town, wailing like a banshee
And left behind a salty void where Port Royal should be

“Nothing else was seen but the dead and dying nor heard but shrieks and cries
As the sea retreated, taking with it all our sins and lives."
