​The Pirate Song

This song is by Art Bears and appears on the album Hopes and Fears (1978).

The day that the pirate ship first appears:
Terror in the town
We'll 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.
