Track Name: Years At Sea
And here's to another year at sea with you!
Ha Ha Ha! [Ha Ha Ha!]
Ha Ha Ha! [Ha Ha Ha!]
Ha Ha Ha! [Ha Ha Ha!]
Track Name: Burning Out Tonight Part I
I see the fires burning
I see the fires burning out tonight
I see the fires burning
I see the fires burning dead!
Cause of what I hold in my hands
What I hold in my hands

Tonight I feel the eyes all coming down on me
Everyone's trying to get a tell on just what I seen
River gonna carry me down to the end
Can't same let the same old stupid shit happen again
I see the fires burning
I see the fires burning out tonight
I see the fires burning
I see the fires burning dead!
2, 3, 4!
Track Name: Burning Out Tonight Part II
Dancing all alone at the show once again
One little fist is all it takes to start a rebellion
Don't want to lead them all to the same fate as me
But I know you can't help feeling the beat running through your feet
Well, Ha Ha Ha!
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!

Tonight I see the fires burning out
Hell will freeze over if they all start burning in
Every night I scream and I sing and I shout
I know I'm never, never gonna win
Cause I can't quite follow and I can't quite lead
And a fate at 27 is it just an urban legend?
Everything that do is it everything I need
If I want to spend a life sailing all the deadly seas?
Count to [1, 2, 3!]
Is this my destiny? My final call?
[HELL NO!]
Oh a life of slavery
It's all so quick should I just flow with the tide as it rolls in?
Don't let them win!
Oh No! Don't let them win!
Oh No! Don't let them win!
Can't let the same stupid shit happen again!

River gonna carry me down to the end
Can't let the same old stupid shit happen again
I see the fires burning
I see the fires burning out tonight!
I see the fires burning
I see the fires burning dead!
I see the fires burning
I see the fires burning out tonight!
It's all because of what I
What I hold in my hands
What I hold in my hands
What I hold in my hands
What I hold in my hands
Track Name: Lost Souls
I see you peaking through the trees
While the full moon glistens on the leaves
I cry [woah oh oh oh oh]
As the nightmare gets rolling along
I rock my chair while singing my favorite song
It goes [woah oh oh oh oh]

I feel the walls come crashing down
Souls begin to gather around
I'll be lucky if I hear another sound
The pain sets in and [my lights go black tonight!]

Time to set sail across the seas
For a treasure the souls need to retrieve
They cry [woah oh oh oh oh]
A barrel of booze and my favorite song
Souls stagger and start singing along
It goes [woah oh oh oh oh]

I feel the walls come crashing down
Souls begin to gather around
I'll be lucky if I hear another sound
The pain sets in and [my lights go black tonight!]

[We're lost souls!!!]
[We're lost souls!!!]
[We're lost souls!!!]
[We're lost souls!!!]

The alcohol goes straight to my head
I think of you and wish I was dead
I cry [woah oh oh oh oh]
The thought of you touching my skin
Is worse than hell after a lifetime of sin
I cry [woah oh oh oh oh]
Track Name: Mutiny
We're cracking up as the sun beats down
Not an ounce of land have we found
The Captain keeps pointing out to the sea
I can sense another stupid mutiny, oh no.

Creepy crawler crawling on my knee
And I don't know exactly just what I've seen
It does a little dance while I do a little singing
The only ones to trust better mean a thing or two.

Everyone thinks they sweat of their brow
Who's side will you fight for now?
Might your friends be really enemies?
Who can you trust out on the open seas anymore?

A man who can lead
at the edge of the sea
as we go o'er a waterfall
and it plummets us into the deep!

Hey! Hey! Hey!Hey!
Who's side will you fight for now?
Hey! Hey! Hey!Hey!
When the Captains run your ship a-ground?
Hey! Hey! Hey!Hey!
Who's side will you fight for now?
Hey! Hey! Hey!Hey!
When the Captains run your ship a-ground?
Track Name: Oh, I Don't Know
Oh, I don't know about the sun it is so bright
Oh, I don't know about the shade it is so cold
Oh, I don't know just where I'll sit, forget about everything
Oh, I don't know
Oh, I don't know

[Oh, I don't know]
[Oh, I don't know]
[Oh, I don't know] just how this lonely story goes
And everything we said was so out of control
Oh, I don't know
Oh, I don't know

Oh, I don't know just where I'll sit, forget about everything
Oh, I don't know
Oh, I don't know

[Oh, I don't know]
[Oh, I don't know]
[Oh, I don't know] just how this lonely story goes
And everything we said was so out of control
Oh, I don't know
[Oh, I don't know]
Track Name: No Town
I belong to No Town [Hey!]
No Town belongs to me [Let's Go!]
We'll cast out on the river [Hey!]
And sail out to the sea

We'll drink and dance and find romance
No one will sleep tonight
There's no last calls for alcohol
[This is No Town!]
Sing our songs all night long
And raise our fists up with spite
There's no last calls for alcohol
[This is No Town!]
I'll live my life on the edge of a blade tonight!

[Hey!]
[Let's Go!]
[Hey!]

We'll drink and dance and find romance
No one will sleep tonight
There's no last calls for alcohol
[This is No Town!]
Sing our songs all night long
And raise our fists up with spite
There's no last calls for alcohol
[This is No Town!]
I'll live my life on the edge of a blade tonight!

[Hey! Hey!]
[Hey! Hey!]
[Hey! Hey!]
[Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!]

[Hey! Hey!]
[Hey! Hey!]
[Hey! Hey!]
[Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!]

And I belong to No Town
No Town belongs to me
[We'll cast out on the river]
[And sail out to the sea!]

We'll drink and dance and find romance
No one will sleep tonight
There's no last calls for alcohol
[This is No Town!]
Sing our songs all night long
And raise our fists up with spite
There's no last calls for alcohol
[This is No Town!]
I'll live my life on the edge of a blade tonight!

Track Name: Wrong Place Wrong Time
Sitting on a slab of rock
Singing songs with the other men who'd been caught
Planting bombs on the other ships who'd've thought
Cannonballs weren't meant as gifts

We let the flags fly
Closing in on the men screaming "God, Oh why!"
"Did I have to be at the wrong place at the wrong time?"
"Do I have to die? Do I have to die?"

[We're gonna to break out tonight because the sails have come into sight again!]
[We're gonna to break out tonight because the sails have come into sight again!]
We're gonna break out and find the heads of the men who deserve this instead!

Not saying I'm not a horrible man
There's people out there that do much worse than I can
And I'm not saying what I do is right
But there's much worse I can do with my life

We let the flags fly
Closing in on the men screaming "God, Oh why!"
"Did I have to be at the wrong place at the wrong time?"
"Do I have to die? Do I have to die?"

[We're gonna to break out tonight because the sails have come into sight again!]
[We're gonna to break out tonight because the sails have come into sight again!]
We're gonna break out and find the heads of the men who deserve this instead!
Oh yeah yeah!
Oh no no!
Oh kill me now!
Track Name: Deathtraps
The gallows and shallows and watery graves
All masked by the people they've saved
And we'll set fire to deathtraps everyday
But the captain's soul has been trapped by a gaze

A lass who's slapped shackles on our wrath
With passion and love for the insane
A life of solitude any talented man should choose
Over a life destined for pain
The captain has gone insane

His neck will hold strong while the others hang dead
His back has turned to leather for the things that he has said
He's been stretched and stretched to the end of his rouse
The wench it would take to tame the shrew
A loved one is bait for a torturous brigade
And time after time she'll have to be saved
The captain slumps as he falls into a rage
Many lifeless males at the end of his blade

Everywhere I look and everything I see
Everything I touch and everything I feel
Every time I see another broken thing
It’s all the words I’ve learned that I cannot repeat
All the uselessness I have found at all
For drug abuse and alcohol
[Everywhere]
Will keep me sane until I've played society's game
[Everywhere]
There's deathtraps, deathtraps, deathtraps everywhere

The captain it would seem would fall in love with a dream
I life of marriage is not quite what it seems
A slave is til the day he is killed
And our lady deathtraps, she's everywhere
[Deathtraps, Deathtraps, Deathtraps] Everywhere!
[Deathtraps, Deathtraps, Deathtraps] Everywhere!
[Deathtraps, Deathtraps, Deathtraps] Everywhere!
[Deathtraps, Deathtraps, Deathtraps!]
Track Name: Clock
I hear the clock ticking into the night
As the flame flickers out I move into the moonlight
Woke to a horrible fright
The sounds are all out of sight
When did these nightmares turn into my life
Oh I must've slept a night and a day
Because the creatures breath blowing makes a haze on the rays
From the moon creeping into the room
Something better happen soon
Why do they never have anything good to say
Oh I don't want to wake the lot
Because it's like a pack of wolves at the end my cot
And they don't care much for this song
Why don't you sing along?
Oh how I wish
[Oh how I wish they were dead!]
[All the creatures in my head!]
[How I wish they were dead!]
[There's nothing they can do to stop me now!]

I hear the breaths all falling in time
If the band could play like this
I wouldn't be losing my mind
And then the song fades into a dream
Life is not as it seems
Who let all these monkeys waltz right into the scene
I close my eyes and count to ten
If this is just a dream
Then I'll wake up again
To a life full of no surprise
Everything we love dies
Oh how I wish
[Oh how I wish they were dead!]
[All the creatures in my head!]
[How I wish they were dead!]
[There's nothing they can do to stop me now!]

[How I wish they were dead!]
[All the creatures in my head!]
[How I wish they were dead!]
[There's nothing they can do to stop me now!]


[How I wish they were dead!]
[All the creatures in my head!]
[How I wish they were dead!]
[There's nothing they can do to stop me now!]
Track Name: Crack Jenny's Teacup
[But tonight we're going ashore!]
[We'll drink until we hit the floor]
[We'll crack jenny's teacup once more]
[And then we'll sail away for another forty days]
[But tonight we're going ashore]
[The siren's songs will heal our sores]
[We'll tell tales of forgotten lore]
[And then we'll sail away for another forty days]
[But tonight we're going ashore!]
[We'll drink until we hit the floor]
[We'll crack jenny's teacup once more]
[And then we'll sail away for another forty days]
[But tonight we're going ashore!]
Track Name: Death's Door
They cast of the mooring with a fleet full of four
Two for the crew, and two more
For the grog they will drink
Face down in hell's sink
A fistful of darkness
A knock on death's door
[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!
[Death's Door! Death's Door!]
[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!
[Death's Door! Death's Door!]
[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!
[Death's Door! Death's Door!]
[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!

While they were asleep
The crags did a creep
From off in the distance to under their feet
The call from crow's nest came down too late
None would escape their miserable fates

[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!
[Death's Door! Death's Door!]
[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!
[Death's Door! Death's Door!]
[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!
[Death's Door! Death's Door!]
[Ha ha ha]
Knock on death's door!

[Death's Door!]
[Death's Door!]
[Death's Door!]
Track Name: Dance of the Bones
If you find yourself walking alone
And the wind starts singing a song
And out from nowhere the bones will appear
They'll dance around you til you are frightened and scared
Don't walk alone

Because they'll put you in a trance
And the skeletons will make you dance
[And you'll never return from the life of the scourge]
[And that's why you don't walk alone]

You find the party on the move
You're up all night drinking your booze
You hear rustling leaves coming from the trees
They'll dance around you, laugh at you and bring you to your knees
Don't make a move

Because they'll put you in a trance
And the skeletons will make you dance
[And you'll never return from the life of the scourge]
[And that's why the party stays at home]

You find yourself screaming at night
The bones will come and turn out all the lights
And they'll sing you a song about what you did wrong
They'll dance around you, laugh at you and make you dance all night
Don't scream at night!

Because they'll put you in a trance
And the skeletons will make you dance
[And you'll never return from the life of the scourge]
[And that's why you don't scream at night!]

Don't walk alone
Don't walk alone
Don't walk alone
