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 sails to quarter mast,
We'll jump their 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,
We won't come 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 desire alive.

And to my damsel in distress,
You've made a mess of your new dress [x2]

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.

    This song is about epic pirates that really don't give a darn and also where it says "and to my damsel in distress, you've made a mess of your new dress[x2]" it's actually "and to my damsel in distress you've made a mess of your new dress, youve made a mess you've made a mess"
