lyrics

Well little Jim has always love the Sea and pirat books with plenty of „me“
So making bouts out of piece of bark, he dreamed of captain‘ one.
Before he ate a meal with his dirty hands never‘d start without the toast to his friends,
Thus the life went on and the river flowed with his dinghy cruising streams.

But hard is a life when you’re sailing a dream that was always in your heart.
And cliffs on your way are just way too much real for the little captain Jim.

After fifteen years of bein‘ lonely kid Jimmy finally found a friend to drink with,
So drunk to hell and marginalized, he’d bum around the town.
Never hit a deck, never taste the salt but drinking rum as a pirat’s old whore,
He still maked small bouts out of bark and watched them floating by.

But now the boy is a man and they don’t understand to the soul that lost it‘s course
For Jim there’s a way what-hell-ever they say, that one day he’ll reach the shore

When ever bank’s too far and the arms are too weak
We think of that small breath inside
And every man in a row is like a wave in the sea
That drowns if you don’t fit in the line

No matter how Jim swims or how hard can he fight,
For a reason there’s always a wall
Why can’t we kill by the sword every thing what is wrong
It’s Jim who we fight after all
It’s Jim who we fight after all

So one day, when clouds were off the sky, Jim awoke with a perfect thought on his mind
He grabbed a knife and cut his grudge, that almosed killed his heart
It took a day or two to built a wooden craft with a flagpole and blackjack on the top
So the high tide came and Jim has left what others called the home.

He is leaving today, there’s no way he can stay imprisoned in this fucking land
With a scarf ‘round his head, rum will sure cheat the death, Jim is heading to meet his bane,
Hope he’ll never lose the lane.

When ever bank’s too far and the arms are too weak
We think of that small breath inside
And every man in a row is like a wave in the Sea
That drowns you if you’re out the line

No matter how Jim swims or how hard does he fight,
For a reason there’s always a wall
Why can’t we kill by the sword every thing that is wrong
It’s Jim who we fight after all
It’s Jim who we fight after all
