  • alestorm'un 2014 çıkışlı sunset on the golden age albümünün 4. şarkısı. şöyle bir baktığım zaman alestorm için uzun sayılabilecek bir süreye sahip olmasına rağmen en iyi şarkılarından biridir. bunda, çok estetik bir altyapıya sahip olmasının yanında güzel sololarla bezenmiş olması ama diğer bir yandan alestorm'un diğer şarkılarından ayıracak olursak herhangi bir cıvıklık öğesi içermemesi etkili (bende en azından).

    sailing the raging seas
    to distant lands unknown
    porto bello fell in a day
    now britannia rules the waves
    thirty thousand men at arms
    red ensign in the sky
    to cartagena we set sail
    with blood and plunder
    we'll prevail

    twice struck, and twice
    we've failed
    but third time works a charm
    the greatest fleet the world
    has seen
    to fight the war of jenkins' ear
    waters lash across the bow
    through carribean seas
    the year is 1741
    the final battle has begun

    the skies are burning with thunder
    the seas are ablaze with flame
    set the course for cartagena
    the sands of time will remember
    our names
    the skies are burning with thunder
    the seas are ablaze with flame
    set the course for cartagena
    history is written today

    across the sea-lashed deck
    our captain gives a cry
    "cartagena lies ahead
    the spanish foe will soon be dead!"
    portents of coming doom
    engulf the battle line
    high above, the heavens sigh
    a red light burning in the sky

    an omen of dread
    which no man can deny
    the legends hold true
    we must turn back or die

    superstitious fools
    be gone from my sight
    blast the trumpets of war
    and prepare for the fight

    the skies are burning with thunder
    the seas are ablaze with flame
    set the course for cartagena
    the sands of time will remember
    our names
    the skies are burning with thunder
    the seas are ablaze with flame
    set the course for cartagena
    history is written today

    hard to starboard
    man the cannons
    and on my command,
    unleash hell!

    fıre! show them your steel
    bring them to death on the battlefield
    ride on the wind, and conquer
    the foe
    the legends be damned, to our
    deaths we will go

    the skies are burning with thunder
    the seas are ablaze with flame
    set the course for cartagena
    the sands of time will remember
    our names
    the skies are burning with thunder
    the seas are ablaze with flame
    set the course for cartagena
    history is written today
