Track Name: Anchor's Away!
Anchor's away boys
Anchor's Away!
We'll f*** some girls and drink some beer
Anchor's Away!

We're sailing out to the bay boys
Sailing out to the bay!
We'll moor off Fighting Indian Island
Anchor's Away!

Anchor's away boys
Anchor's Away!
We'll f*** some girls and drink some beer
Anchor's Away!

Let's Go!

Well I left my home behind me
With my heart, and my hole, and my kin
And I won't be back til '42
Anchor's Away!

Anchor's away boys
Anchor's Away!
We'll f*** some girls and drink some beer
Anchor's Away!

One more time!

Anchor's away boys
Anchor's Away!
We'll f*** some girls and drink some beer
Anchor's Away!
Track Name: No Freedom In Country
I don't give a shit about the America
I don't give a shit about your land//the old world// too
I could care less about borders or Canada
All I care about is me and you

Get me off this god-forsaken vessel
Get my legs on land before they fail
Tell my bride I'll be home when the sky is blue
Sail me home! Sail me safe! We'll make a few
Track Name: War!
War!
It's what they're here for
Right off Grave Island
It comes today

War!
Coming up on starboard
All hands on deck boys
Blow them Away!

War!

They got 10 men
We got the same
They took our Mizzen
We took their Main

But hey that's War!
That's what it's all for
to kill each other
Then drift away
War!
That's what it's all for
let's kill each other
And drift away

War!

Bear Down!
Hold fast lads!
Prepare for close quarters!
Don't give up the ship!
Track Name: Meet Me At The Shore
Take
Take me home
I'm tired and sick of the waves, and the sea, and the storm,
Wake me up
I'm restless and listless from pulling and sheeting these ropes
Take me Home

Let's go down to the shoreline and greet them
Let's go down to the sea to keep them warm
All that I really ask is to be forgiven
I've been bad, I've been banned, I've been bruised, and now I'm alone.

Breathe
Breathe on me!
I've got to get air in these lungs or I'll sink to the deep
Throw
Throw your rope
It's cold in this water, and treading is waning on me
Breathe on me!

Let's go down to the shoreline and greet them
Let's go down to the sea to keep them warm
All that I really ask is to be forgiven
I've been bad, I've been banned, I've been bruised, and now I'm alone.

All I see in the sky, are sparrows
Dying, and crashing in to the waves below
Take my word the hope died with their wingspans
Hold a light to guide, I'll come back home
I can paddle my way until I'm exhausted
You can lend me your hand to fasten my raft
But this rope is frayed, and won't last a fortnight
But if you, my sweetheart, see me often
The hope, and the sun, and the colours will keep us bright

Let's go down to the shoreline and greet them
Let's go down to the sea to keep them warm
All that I really ask is to be forgiven
I've been bad, I've been banned, I've been bruised, and now I'm alone.
Track Name: I'm Killing Myself
I've tried holding my breath
I've tried tying my neck
I've tried pills, and booze, and guns
I've tried almost everything my girl to escape from the numb
So this one last time, hear me out, I'm telling you how it goes down
I'm killing myself by sailing out to become one with the reef

Well, I'm killing myself
I'm killing myself with the sea
I've sailed away, and folded my clothes, and diving in so deep girl
to become one with the reef.
Track Name: I'm A Barefoot Man
I'm a Barefoot Man
Who sunk his ship
By will, and not by fate
And as I let the waves come in, I can't remember your face
For the greatest crime I've yet to commit, is not my suicide
Its the endless thought that I left ye there, among the pit and the pace.

For I'm not going to make it home.

Now my lungs have taken in all they can
of dissolved oxygen
In a part per million like the sun, as if it was still there
For the greatest crime I'm about to commit, is not my suicide
It's that death has come to my will and my fight
to see you by my side.

For I'm not going to make it home.
