  • Surrounded by the spoils that piracy has earned
    Protect your treasure horde
    From those you think would steal
    Alone for many years long ago your fat was sealed
    Paranoia permeates, imprisoned by your selfish hate

    You think you're seeing thieves
    Hallucinations drive you mad
    Only fighting with yourself,
    Because there's no one there

    You life's been paved with greed only cared
    For gaining wealth
    Spite the gods too many times
    At the cost of ship and crew
    Now an island's your abode,
    With the riches of a king
    None of it can you ever spend,
    Will you repent your wicked ways

    Never freedom from this curse
    To spend eternity like this
    Impossible to break these chains

    You only wish that you could die

    Die for gold
    You only wish that you could die
    Die for gold



    Your dreams not realized,
    Tormented for your deeds
    A punishment that fits the sin
    Never sail the seas again

    Make your bed on a pile of gems,
    An empire of lonely rule
    Despair turns to insanity
    Your skin turns a precious gleam

    The sea god's made his point
    He cares not for your remorse
    You withheld Poseidon's share
    Immortal sentence, You can't die

    Die for gold
    You only wish that you could die
    Die for gold
    You only wish that you could die Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
