Hungry Oceans

Living on hungry oceans
taming wind and wild sea
watching out on all horizons
evil in their eyes
the mist had come down around us

Galleon blazing from each gun port
jolly roger flying high
cannon hot from dealing death
as screams of pain now fill the sky
broadside shakes the humble vessel
cannon fire tears out its heart
grappling hooks pull deck to deck
as hand to hand the combat starts

On hungry oceans
on hungry oceans

Cutlass scorching through flesh
of trader shocked and unprepared
captain cries out and surrenders
those alive are fighting scared
gold encrusted jewelled handles
treasure chest of wealth untold
grappling hooks pull deck to deck
hoist the flag break down the holds

The captain turns and leaves his ship
the battle now he has lost
mighty were the men who fought
mighty too was the cost
suddenly he pulls a knife
and all his men call out a plea
