Treasure Island

A story of blood shedding


Sometimes revenge talks and it is so sweet
Doesn't hail peace fols just lie steal and cheat
Sometimes chaos becomes salvation and dark rules
Throw your candles men and use war tools

Sharpen your swords and prepare your axe
Write a love letter and seal it with wax
For tomorrow the lord of death will come
And will take many and leave some

The ground will be painted in red
The wounded will wish they were dead
At last will rise a flag of victory
And only the living will be written in history

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
