It's a dark and storm-tossed sea
Sailing forth bravely, my captain and me
Fine misty spray obscures my sight
Rounding the cape will sure be a fight

The topman calls out "There's rocks to the port!"
The wind answers back a haunting retort
The captain sets his sights; "Turn starb'd!" he wails
Lightning flashes, gales tear at the sails

Thunder rolls; the captain, he vows:
"I'll fight God and the Devil himself
'Til Doomsday to cross the cape!
I won't be denied!
And I dare any force from Heaven or Hell
To stand in my way!"

Sails of blood red
Ride over the waves
Mark the watery death
And your graves

Beware the captain who dares
Go where men should not go
And be damned to sail for all time
Down below

Don't forget this tale that I tell
You can hear his soul cry...

Just as he cried, I was washed overboard
Then the wrath of God himself
came upon them all
And I saw
The rocks, the water, the light
the sound -- and the blood

Sails of blood red
Ride over the waves
Mark the watery death
And your graves

Beware the captain who dares
Go where men should not go
And be damned to sail for all time
Down below

Don't forget this tale that I tell
You can hear his soul cry...

Don't sail past the cape!
He's lying in wait!
Add souls to his crew --
He'd take me, he'd take you

He begs for release
Ship flies on the seas
It's a damned, damned ship
It's a damned, damned crew

Dutchman!
