Pirate – Jen CassListen to this song: Pirate 

Came out of dusk
With a swashbuckler’s grin
A taste of the ocean’s original sin
Followed the sextants to uncharted land
Set out to conquer
What you never could understand
You wondered what you would find
Safe in my dangerous mind
Treasure and pieces of eight
You saw the warnings too late…
It’s five in the morning
Sailors take warning
Rough waters ahead
Still you stand by the bow
With a bottle to break

Random Magic quote of the piratey persuasion:

She held the map up to the porthole, against the moonlight. An entirely different map sprung to life.‘Wow.’‘Okay,’ Winnie said, tracing a path along the surface, ‘here's where we are, and here's where we need to get to.’
Henry studied the map. ‘The quickest way looks like -- through here,’he said, pointing.
‘No way. Not for a cartful of gold.’
