Lyrics

Come, sailor! Embark my ship
The one marvel of the seven seas
Skimming on and on through the ruthless waves
Sail with me on this deadly trip
I’ll be your captain, I’ll lead the way
Through the ocean’s wrath full of danger
Remember my name: Van Der Decken
But some call me the Flying Dutchman

The storm caught us down the Cape of Good Hope
But nothing could stop me from sailing my way
I stood up to the fury of God himself
And proved that my vessel stayed afloat
The divine punishment soon came to us all
Condemned to haunt the seas forevermore
Now I’ll ask you again, will you come on board
And join my cursed crew, will you heed my call?

Black sails arrive
The damned man’s ship from the realm of death
Now meet your fate
Its phantom crew will take you down
Over the world
Traveling in a ceaseless storm
The tale of a man
The tale of the Flying Dutchman

For centuries we’ve wandered the oceans of the world
Leading sailors to a doomed end
The terror in their eyes at the sight of our ship
Its ghastly blurred figure brings bad omen
Surrounded by the darkness of the stormy skies
The curse of the Dutchman can strike
The restless souls of the men who looked into our eyes
Will now join my crew for eternal life

Black sails arrive
The damned man’s ship from the realm of death
Now meet your fate
Its phantom crew will take you down
Over the world
Traveling in a ceaseless storm
The tale of a man
The tale of the Flying Dutchman

Black sails arrive
The damned man’s ship from the realm of death
Now meet your fate
Its phantom crew will take you down
Over the world
Traveling in a ceaseless storm
The tale of a man
The tale of the Flying Dutchman
Relentlessly
Defying the skies to stop his course
Repentlessly
He’ll never touch the land again
