Through The Gale

Telmavar Records // 2010

 

1. Hoist Up the Colors!

 

Cut. Cut away. Let the axes fly

Let a'loose them ropes and everything dry

Leave the scars of the land far away ashore

Let the strumpets cry like the waves will roar

  

Let the pall dispurse. Let them see our stern

Pray we nay be moored, pray our names be earned

Let our bildge grow damp, let our futtocks crack

May our Bows be strong, and the winds at our back

  

Lucky fools! Hoist up them Colors!! 

Lucky fools! Hoist up them Colors!! 

  

Bring the anchor up, up, let the sails roll down

Let them rats grow old, may we hang or drown

Let the swell grow high. Nay we stillness feel

Let the fathoms wail down below our keel

  

Set! Set a'sail. Let the landlubbers stay

Leave this Cradle of Dirt to the Ocean's spray

Let the skies and seas be our only friends

Let our journeys start, long before it ends! 

  

Lucky fools! Hoist up them Colors!! 

Lucky fools! Hoist up them Colors!! 

  

Take the fates... back to our hands! back to our hands! 

Take the fates... back to our hands! back to our hands!

 

2. Through The Gale

 

These are the roughest seas you're ever gonna sail

Our hearts and our sails are ripped our mast is cracked and frail

  

Nothing matters at all. 

Nothing matters. Ahead we go. 

  

Our ship is going through, we're heading for the gale

And we'll break our arms to swim if our vessel fails

  

Nothing matters at all. 

Nothing matters. Ahead we go. 

  

Oh damned and wicked winds, you seekers of betrail

Our backs and our beams shall break beneath your cold asail

But we're sailors through and through, although our hope is pale

Sailing is what we do, and onwards we shall sail

  

Nothing matters at all. 

Nothing matters. Ahead we go.

 

3. The Sirens & the Sea

 

Never see you again back in my land

‎‏I got to find myself in my mind

‎‏Black are my sails, and black are my flags

‎‏Black are the waters, and black are my stars

 

‎‏Hear the Sirens call my name, I feel they're dragging me again

‎‏Hear the Sirens call my name, I won't be coming home again

 

‎‏Mountains of ocean crash at my sides

‎‏My heart is a kingdom where Poseidon resides

‎‏Dark is my vision, but strong is my hand

‎‏Far-away voices stir me to sand

 

‎‏Hear the Sirens call my name, I feel they're dragging me again

‎‏Hear the Sirens call my name, I won't be coming home again

 

4. At the Edge of the Map

 

Here at the edge of the map

Where the foul creatures roam

And the last chapters form

Here, where there's no turning back

Between compass and key

Our epilogues be

 

5. Sailors Are We

 

Hey there! You dirty old swines! 

Better tighten them ropes, and steardy them lines! 

  

Hark now! You see-loving knaves! 

Posidon's awake and he's rolling them waves! 

  

Hey! Sir! Boys! What?! What do you got? 

A ship that will break and a body that'll rot! 

  

Hey! Sir! Men! Yeah! Why do we row? 

Cause sailors are we and it's sailing we know! 

  

Hey lads! Better steardy them legs! 

Drink to your health and empty them kegs! 

  

Let the yardarms stay bare! Take out the oars! 

Make your backs full of hurt and your hands full of sores! 

  

 Hey! Sir! Boys! What?! What do you got? 

A ship that will break and a body that'll rot!

 

6. Poseidon's Fury Unleashed

 

Wherever I roam

that be your home

 

Rough though the fury may be

of a god and his storm

thats where we go

 

Let our skin

be drenched from within

Death is Fear

Death is Fear

Death is Fear

 

Bring those godly of traits

that Anger and Hate

We'll cradle them all

 

Men! A life at sea

ready we be

to welcome it all

 

Drown our bone

to our ocean home

We are Free

We are Free

We are Free

 

7. Oh Western Wind

 

Oh Western Wind

bring me to shore

I've bee sailing these waters

like no man before

I got nobody

to breath out my name

a lonely disciple  

of your heavenly game

 

8. Turn of the Tides under the Northern Lights

 

The sun, it rises and sets

my homeward path is the place where it rests

Oh, where the sun goes

from there I come, to there I go

Love is all I need to take

my heart is strong though my body'll break

My lungs will fill with the ocean's salt

but my love will keep my heart afloat

The waves will tear my battered arms

but in my heart the water is calm

The winds will strip my bones from flesh

my love is strong, my heart is fresh

My eyes and ears will feed the sea

my hear will keep on guiding me... 

back home... 

guide me back home... 

back home
