Lyrics:

The Curse Of The Deadly Shade

Chorus:
Avast! Avast!
Beware The Deadly Shade!
The mast! The mast!
Stop journeying! belay!

Verse:
Legends tell of
A ghostly ship
Beware of any
Passing trip!

Has eyes with demons
Looking through
It swore allegiance
To Devil's crew

Becalmed she were
On the wistful tide
The vessel creaked,
Riches inside

Marooned o'er waters
Still as ghosts
As Davy Jone's Locker
Always hosts

Chorus:
Avast! Avast!
Beware The Deadly Shade!
The mast! The mast!
Stop journeying! belay!

Verse:
Unfrightened of
The Deadly Shade
Twelve crooks set sail
on the English waves

Men as such
they only follow
The captain known
as Talbert Hollow

Chorus:
Avast! Avast!
Beware The Deadly Shade!
The mast! The mast!
Stop journeying! belay!

Verse:
They reached the Shade
Within a month
Having kept their
Pirate's touch

The sea began to quake
And tremble
The captain yelled,
"Ahoy! Assemble!"

Chorus:
Avast! Avast!
Beware The Deadly Shade!
The mast! The mast!
Stop journeying! belay!

Verse:
The fearless sailors
Marched on deck
A dozen fools
Moving towards their deaths

They didn't have
a chance to cry
For it was over
Less than nigh

Chorus:
Avast! Avast!
Beware The Deadly Shade!
The mast! The mast!
Stop journeying! belay!

Verse:
Legends tell of
A ghostly ship
Beware of any
Passing trip!

It lures it's foes
With promises
But deceit it holds
No common sense

Anyone who
dares set foot
Is damned to Hell
While his soul is took

Consumed by greed
Of fame and wealth
T'is the end
Of Hollow's health

Chorus:
Avast! Avast!
Beware The Deadly Shade!
The mast! The mast!
Stop journeying! belay!
[Exit]
