Airship Pirate
Abney Park Lyrics


Our fire's high and the airbag's tight,
Our food's low but the skies are bright
Props spinning all through the night,
We're low on cash but we've seen another target

Goggles down, and the cannons up
My blood starts pumping as I drain my cup
I give the wheel a spin and I turn this girl around,
We're way above ground but we're closing on our target

Our flying jib is filled with air
East India ship's filled with despair,
We even up, our broadsides bare
Our cannons flare but it's just a show of muscle

Steady on, she doesn't need to burn
She tries to flee, and she tries to turn
Grappling fire, we grab her hull
We're starting to roll, but we've got her on a leash

With a crew of drunken pilots, we're the only airship pirates!
We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise
We're the terror of the skies, but a danger to ourselves

With a crew of drunken pilots, we're the only airship pirates!
We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise
We're the terror of the skies, but a danger to ourselves now

Expendable crew starts to reel her in
Our swords are sharpened and they're ready to sin
I'm three miles up, we're about to swing aboard
My tether's made of leather so I'm not about to fall here

A swish of air and my boots hit deck
No cash, no fuel, no, not a speck
Our grapeshot's made this bird a wreck
But a glance below deck shows a crew of nuns and orphans!

With a crew of drunken pilots, we're the only airship pirates!
We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise
We're the terror of the skies, but a danger to ourselves

With a crew of drunken pilots, we're the only airship pirates!
We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise
We're the terror of the skies, but a danger to ourselves

With a crew of drunken pilots, we're the only airship pirates!
We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise
We're the terror of the skies, but a danger to ourselves

With a crew of drunken pilots, we're the only airship pirates!
We're full of hot air and we're starting to rise
We're the terror of the skies, but a danger to ourselves now

@teeth burglar Thank you very much for your suggestion. Actually, I am already listening to that band and the songs you like are also some of the songs I love to listen to as well :D It's nice to find a kindred soul, haha.
Though there is still a tiny difference I miss and Abney Park delivers it. Unfortunately though in my ears, the singer is a great disturbance to that awesome music. And again: if someone reads this and it's your most favourite band: there's nothing wrong with the singer's voice, it's just that my personal taste does not resonate with it.

But paige, maybe you also like other unusual gems I found to be nice sprinkled in between my playlists (I will diversify the genres):

Thank you very much for your suggestion again.

I got to play an airship pirate in the local LARP today, armed with a flintlock and a mean persuasive streak.

You can bet I was humming this song.

Any cyberpunk fan is definitely long way from home in this neighbourhood.

Joshua Smith I have a lot of playlists

@Just another Account A top hat is still gentle... even if it's decked out

@AtropaBelladonna I have a steampunk cosplay I do fairly regularly where, if I take off the costume extras, the underlying clothes (collared shirt, khakis, and leather boots) are actually just an outfit I'd not catch a second glance for wearing to work :P

Sosig

fan of both... but i prefer steampunk

AtropaBelladonna

Mickji You can dress casual steampunk and be just fine, when you start dressing costume steampunk, people say things. But as an alternative person (goth and steampunk), I say dress how you want, screw what other people think, be yourself and be what you love. Go out there in brass goggles, big suspenders, a top hat covered in cogs, a few glass vials strapped to your belt and a mechanical gauntlet if you want. If anyone says something, just intelligently explain why their opinion is irrelevant with some brilliantly fanciful linguistic prowess.

Just another Account

Mickji no. I dress real formal every day, in hopes of bringing stuff like this back. Back to when Men were gentlemen and women were ladies.
