The day that the pirate ship first appears
Terror in the town
We trade in our humanity
For any trinket of treasure
For power or pleasure
If I could give it all away
Well I would
Believe me
I don't want to make you
Understand or pity me
We're only chained together
One life is lost
And all the rest remains
Well if you do not see
I think you'll never see
And you will always be
Afraid of understanding me
I speak as you would speak
I see as you would see
I agree
