Ship has set sail, sea will prevail
Swallow the slaughter, drink the saltwater
Pawn of the power, sea will devour
Infinite day, awaiting the hour

[Chorus:]
Walk the plank
Walk the plank

Tied, ball and chain, infliction of pain
Vultures arise, death in their eyes
Under the gun, food supply: none
Knife in the back, nowhere to run

[Repeat chorus]

[Post-chorus:]
All hope is lost, been double-crossed
Legion of death, steal your last breath

The treachery of mutiny, lightning and thunder
Make the mind wonder
Water's infected, captain's arrested
Sharks in the water, body's ingested

[Repeat chorus]
[Repeat post-chorus] x2
