Alestorm – Under Blackened Banners

Under Blackened Banners

[Verse 1]
Five thousand years ago in the age of dinosaurs
A single voice of chaos spoke in a tongue not heard before
Heed my words o denizens of protoplasmic slime
I wield the pirate scepter, this wretched world is mine

[Pre-Chorus]
And from the slime rose up an army of the damned
Black banners in the sky prepared for the command

[Chorus]
Raise your hook
Raise your sword
Fight the world and face the horde
We're the brotherhood of pirates
We’re the sisters of the sea
Sailing under blackened banners
Stealing ships and getting hammered
The destiny of piracy
Belongs to you and me

[Verse 2]
I am the heart of the conspiracy
A secret forged in mystery
From a time before the oceans spanned the globe
Beneath the flag of death I conquer
All those who would defy
The storm has come, black banners fill the sky

[Chorus]
Raise your hook
Raise your sword
Fight the world and face the horde
We're the brotherhood of pirates
We're the sisters of the sea
Sailing under blackened banners
Stealing ships and getting hammered
The destiny of piracy
Belongs to you and me

[Bridge]
We are one
We are all
We are never gonna fall
To the end of all eternity we’ll stand against the law
And now the land lies dead from centuries of war
The protoplasmic pirate horde will rise to fight once more
This moment marks not the end of your mortal life
Nor is it the final chapter in your legacy
This is the beginning of your transcorporeal existence

[Outro]
Raise your hook
Raise your sword
Fight the world and face the horde
We're the brotherhood of pirates
We're the sisters of the sea
Sailing under blackened banners
Stealing ships and getting hammered
Our history, our legacy
The force that sets the spirit free
The destiny of piracy
Belongs to you and me
