08. Battle Of The Bones

Knuckles Up
by Flatfoot 56


The time has come old boy for me to tell you a tale
of a man filled with passion thereís no room for him to fail
he sailed his ship the Lidy Hoo, across the seven seas
with his crew screaming at him, lead us on, sir, if you please

One day the Lidy Hoo sailed across rough waters
this sea said, ďoh captain can you save your sons and daughters?Ē
the captain grabbed his mighty wheel and screamed what you got,
Iím the captain of the Lidy Hoo can you handle her or can you not?
Yo, ho, ho at the battle of bones, you sail the seven seas but youíre never getting home
Well the sea answered back, old boy where have you been
Iíve been waiting for a fight like this since time first began
so prepare yourself, and get ready for your death ride
Iíll be taking you down to Davey Jones with your cargo and your pride

Well they tossed and turned for Ďbout an hour
the ship went around, and then she went downward
the captain reared his ugly head touchť
you have won, t'was my pride that was my downfall, and now our dual is done

lyrics by Tobin Bawinkel

Behind the Song:
"This sailorís ballad is a great lesson on how pride can get us into situations we canít handle. It shows the stupidity of arrogance when one isnít in the right position to be proud. Pride kills. It not only hurts us personally but also those around us." - Tobin Bawinkel (Flatfoot 56)
