No Grave But The Sea Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. No Grave but the Sea (3:30)
Quest! Set a course to the battle
Speed is our weapon of war
De Grasse will pay with his ichor
Blood, mutilation and gore
This is a mission of murder
Death is the freedom you crave
We are the agents of slaughter
Swift is the path to the grave

Breaking the line
Formidable rage
Ranking their broadside with fire

Sail away, set sail into the blue horizon
Ride the waves, that guide our destiny
Sail away, today we fight and there will be
No mercy for those with no grave
No grave but the sea

Ride! Now the winds are a-changing
Into the breach we will sail
Flanked by the Duke and Bedford
Formidable charge cannot fail
Fire!
With a volley of grapeshot
Blood stains the ocean this day
We are the agent of slaughter
Swift is the path to the grave

Three thousand dead
France is defied
The Battle of Saintes will be mine

Sail away, set sail into the blue horizon
Ride the waves, that guide our destiny
Sail away, today we fight and there will be
No mercy for those with no grave
No grave but the sea
2. Mexico (3:10)
When the quest is over
And the battle's won
There's a land far to the south
Where we go to have some fun
The wenches they are plenty
The alcohol is free
The party lasts all through the night
And the alcohol is free

Whoa-oh-oh
Tonight we drink together
Whoa-oh-oh
Tomorrow we may die

Yo! Ho! Mexico!
Far to the south where the cactus grow
Tequila and a donkey show
Mexico! Mexico!
Yo! Ho! Mexico!
Far to the south where the cactus grow
Take me away from the ice and the snow
Let's go to Mexico

A pirate's life is simple
We drink and steal and kill
Always we are questing
In search of bigger thrills
We've sailed across the oceans
Got drunk in many bars
But when we sail to Mexico
That's where we party hard

Whoa-oh-oh
Tonight we drink together
Whoa-oh-oh
Tomorrow we may die

Yo! Ho! Mexico!
Far to the south where the cactus grow
Tequila and a donkey show
Mexico! Mexico!
Yo! Ho! Mexico!
Far to the south where the cactus grow
Take me away from the ice and snow
Three margaritas and a taco
Let's go to Mexico
3. To the End of the World (6:43)
A codex of doom from a deep catacomb
A dusty old volume of lore
Hidden within this annal of sin
Confounding the doctrine of sphere
Science has lied since the dawn of mankind
This world is a fragment of four
3000 years of deception must end
Free from the shackles of time

Conjectural convolution
Exposing mathematical flaws
Armed with sedition and armoured with truth
Lay waste to the doctrine of law

Ride into the storm!
To the end of the world!
(Under the sign of the cube of time)
Ride into the storm!
Set fire to the sky!
(The truth will be told as the circle unfolds)
Ride into the storm!
To the end of the world!
(Onwards we go to the world below)
Ride into the storm!
Defying the tide!
(Questing the seas with a vengeance)
We're riding the storm
To the end of the world

Perspective is why
The earth and the sky
Converge into one
This can't be undone
As sure as hell
Lies deep down below
Around the earth
the sun doth go

Haunted by dreams of a perilous quest
The nightmare revolves in my mind
A vision unfolds, the mission is clear
Set sail to the end of the world
Wielding the timecube, my voyage begins
Westward into the unknown
Once and for all the truth will be told
Heliocentric demise

Empirical revolution
Fighting the fraudulent scourge
Over the apex and to the unknown
Cross the terrestrial verge

Ride into the storm!
To the end of the world!
(Under the sign of the cube of time)
Ride into the storm!
Set fire to the sky!
(The truth will be told as the circle unfolds)
Ride into the storm!
To the end of the world!
(Onwards we go to the world below)
Ride into the storm!
Defying the tide!
(Questing the seas with a vengeance)
We're riding the storm
To the end of the world


Cross the firmament
Over the edge of darkness
Cronos guide the way
Through the Elysian Fields

Face reality
Shatter the false deception
Taste enlightenment
Of the true nature of time

Forged in the fires of chaos
Earth is a fragment of time
Onwards, voyaging onwards
Far we have followed the sign
The price of our human existence
Paid in the sins of the past
Aeons, spiralling aeons
Entropy conquered at last

Ride into the storm!
To the end of the world!
(Under the sign of the cube of time)
Ride into the storm!
Set fire to the sky!
(The truth will be told as the circle unfolds)
Ride into the storm!
To the end of the world!
(Onwards we go to the world below)
Ride into the storm!
Defying the tide!
(Questing the seas with a vengeance)
We're riding the storm
Of human existence
To the end of the world
4. Alestorm (3:56)
Go! A storm is coming
The cold is mind numbing
Darkness is descending
Die, there's no escaping
We're all anticipating
Smashing your brains tonight

Firing the cannons and raising the flag
This is the piratical way
Under the sign of the Storm of Ale
Soon with your lives you will pay

We're losing our minds
Into the barrel, and drink what we find

Rum, Beer, Quests and Mead
These are the things that a pirate needs
Raise the flag, and let's set sail
Under the sign of the Storm of Ale

Rum, the finest potion
It gives me quite the notion
To vomit over your face
Beer, so cold as ice
It's taste it will suffice
Drinking through night and through day

Quest! This is the meaning of life
A voyage into the unknown
A tankard of mead, is all that i need
To enter the partying zone

We're out of control
Escape from your brain to the depths of your soul

Rum, Beer, Quests and Mead
These are the things that a pirate needs
Raise the flag, and let's set sail
Under the sign of the Storm of Ale

We're losing our minds
Into the barrel, and drink what we find

There's no turning back
Ready for battle it's time to attack

Rum, Beer, Quests and Mead
These are the things that a pirate needs
Raise the flag, and let's set sail
Under the sign of the Storm of Ale
5. Bar ünd Imbiss (4:11)
One night I sailed the seas
Of dark Thuringia
I thirsted for an ale
So I headed to a bar
Schlumpfi was the name
I saw above the door
A curious smell came flowing out
So I went inside for more

I see the man called Schlumpfi
Behind the oaken bar
"Welcome to my tavern!"
He cries with open arms
"Schnitzels by the dozen
We have for you to eat
Sausages and local beer
It's quite the gourmet treat"

Cold winds are blowing
the night is dark and long
Raise up a tankard
And join in our song

Plunder with thunder, kill for the thrill
Drink up me hearties 'til we've had our fill
Raise up your tankard, into the sky
Pirates forever from now 'til we die
Fighting together with swords in our hands
Stealing their wenches and scouring their lands
Plunder with thunder, kill for the thrill
Drink up me hearties 'til we've had our fill

I try to fill my tankard
With a pint of that ol' spiced
"No" he says, "you must pay up,
My drinks come at a price"
So of course I did
What's natural to me
I took my flintlock out
And shot him through the knees

We drank the tavern dry
Devoured all the meats
We kidnapped his ugly wife
Then took off through the streets

Plunder with thunder, kill for the thrill
Drink up me hearties 'til we've had our fill
Raise up your tankard, into the sky
Pirates forever from now 'til we die
Fighting together with swords in our hands
Stealing their wenches and scouring their lands
Plunder with thunder, kill for the thrill
Drink up me hearties 'til we've had our fill
6. Fucked with an Anchor (3:27)
Fuck! You! You're a fucking wanker
We're going to punch you right in the balls
Fuck! You! With a fucking anchor
You're all cunts so fuck you all

For 30-odd years I have lived with this curse
My vocabulary was stunted at birth
By a witchdoctor from over the seas
Casting his strange voodoo magic on me
Now when I speak, it's rather absurd
An endless tirade of four letter words
I lash out in anger at all in my way
Shocking unspeakable things that i say

Fuck! You! You're a fucking wanker
We're going to punch you right in the balls
Fuck! You! With a fucking anchor
You're all cunts so fuck you all

Fuck you!

Long I have waited to have my revenge
To bring that witchdoctor to his bitter end
So I have gathered a ship and a crew
We're sailing to find him, we know what to do
On a dark moonless night, when he least suspects
We'll creep up behind him , so hard to detect
We'll bring out our anchor by the light of the stars
And shove it inside of his big fuckin' arse

Fuck! You! You're a fucking wanker
We're going to punch you right in the balls
Fuck! You! With a fucking anchor
You're all cunts so fuck you all
7. Pegleg Potion (3:54)
Far away in a secret cove
In the land of Sgriubh-á-dubh
We hide our mighty pirate ship
From the eyes of folk like you
Aboard the good ship Matey
We brew a toxic punch
It looks a bit like gravy
And it tastes like captain crunch

Ephemeral, delectable
Entirely undetectable
You'll need a pair of spectacles for
Diplomatic dog

I sail the seas of Sgriubh-á-dubh Island
So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion
Always on the search for treasure
So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion
Drink to the end of time

Take one part finest spirit
From Caribbean seas
Mix it up with monkey brains
And the scrapings from your knees
A dash of creme de cacao
A pint of french moonshine
Shake for 15 seconds
Prepare for drinking time

From Oregon to South Dakota
Underwater toilet quota
Driving in an old Toyota
Systematic frog

I sail the seas of Sgriubh-á-dubh Island
So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion
Always on the search for treasure
So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion
Drink to the end of time

We'll drink to the end of time
8. Man the Pumps (5:51)
Well I was just a boy of 12 when I first left the land
I'd never seen a pump before nor held one in my hand
But fate it had in store for me a different destiny
When I joined the crew of the leakiest ship that ever sailed the seas

We were a crew of scurvy dogs but sure we loved to pump
Even though the ship we sailed was just a ragged dump
Every day we pumped together standing side by side
The water kept on creeping in, I thought that we might die

Into the oceans of hell, my friend
Into the oceans we ride
Pump with both hands 'til you're back on dry land
We're sailing the seas 'til we die

Twas in the gulf of Mexico we sailed a crimson tide
And all the other pirates began to run and hide
"This is a devil's omen, we cannot pump these seas"
I found myself alone on deck, so the task it fell to me

The pumpy quest ahead of me was ominous and grim
Our ship was sinking rapidly, the red tide flowing in
I battened down the hatches, prepared to do what's right
I screamed a mighty battle cry and pumped all through the night

Into the oceans of hell, my friend
Into the oceans we ride
Pump with both hands 'til you're back on dry land
We're sailing the seas 'til we die

Then daylight came, and all was calm, the ship she did not sink
And all the crew did celebrate their rescue from the brink
But when they spied where I did lay, the mood it fell bereft
For by the time the sun arose, I'd pumped myself to death
9. Rage of the Pentahook (3:07)
In Paraguay there lives a man
Five rusty hooks on his right hand
And rage consumes his every living day
As one against the entire world
His hooks of deadly wrath unfurled
Slashing all the bastards in his way

He fights to die
He lives to kill
To cut your throat
His greatest skill
He'll eat your kids
And punch your house
And set fire to your cat

So we'll raise our hooks up to the sky
And drink to absent friends
Those far away and those who died
Still fighting to the end
Have no fear for life is short
And death will take us all
So when that bastard comes for us
We'll meet him standing tall

Die by the Rage of the Pentahook!

Many legends have been told
Of evil men from days of old
But none of them compare to what he's done
Sadistic psycho through and through
There's nothing nasty he won't do
One time he shot a baby with a gun

He'll break your neck
And eat your face
The foe of all
The human race
He'll stab your mum
And drink your rum
This bastard can't be killed

So we'll raise our hooks up to the sky
And drink to absent friends
Those far away and those who died
Still fighting to the end
Have no fear for life is short
And death will take us all
So when that bastard comes for us
We'll meet him standing tall
Set sail for the twilight hall
10. Treasure Island (7:48)
How did we come to this place and time
Our lives now ruled by a mariner's rime
We sold our souls to tell this tale
This quest for treasure we regale

With the stars in the sky our guide
Voyage ever onwards
Set a course to the other side
Of the endless oceans blue

Treasure Island
Oh the legends told of a land of rum and plunder
Treasure Island
On a quest for gold we'll sail the seven seas
I can't believe we're on our way
We're going there today
Yarr ahoy!

The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike
The bosun brained with a marlinspike
And cookey's throat was marked belike
It had been gripped by fingers ten
And there they lay all good dead men
Like break o'day in a boozing ken

High was the price that was paid this day
We spun the wheel 'til the coffers ran dry
Nevada sun was burning bare
The stench of everclear filled the air

Fifteen men on the dead man's chest
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
But one man of her crew alive
What put to sea was seventy-five


On the endless quest
So far into the west
Where history and destiny collide
Your luck will last forever and
The truth will never die
(The fates shall be eternal on your side)
Prepare to roll the dice just one more time

Treasure Island
Oh the legends told of a land of rum and plunder
Treasure Island
On a quest for gold we'll sail the seven seas
I can't believe we're on our way
Our destiny lies in the waves
We're going there today
Yarr ahoy!
