She stands feet apart at the prow of her ship
Two loaded pistols cocked on her hips
Her quarry's gone to ground
In a thick bank of clouds
Foolish for thinking he gave her the slip

She feels nothing but the cold wind
Her memories of warmth have long grown thin
Once long ago
The only love she'd known
Left her for dead, scarred and broken

Captain Morena's heart is black as night
Her quest for vengeance goes long into the twilight
For ten years she's hunted a vile, evil man
Who cast her into the ocean with his own bare hands

She orders her men to load the cannons
Grape shot and iron balls certain to do damage
Now that she's caught a glimpse
Of that red painted ship
The look upon her face is no less than savage

All ahead full she shouts at her men
This crew who saved her from an untimely end
Her object of ire
Stands at a quarter mile
This once innocent girl is coming for him

Captain Morena's heart is black as night
Her quest for vengeance goes long into the twilight
This once peasant girl has become a pirate queen
Only with blood will she be appeased

She pulls so close the gas cells collide
He stands across from her rigid with pride
In his handsome face
She sees not a trace
Of remorse for the emptiness he left her inside

Captain Morena tells her men to fire
The red ship goes up in a black funeral pyre.
Sailors and timber
All burn to a cinder
And still he smiles in his regal attire

She leaps over the side, hungry blade in hand
Their swords meet with a terrible clang
As she gives a shout
And her rage flows out
The powder magazine goes out with a bang

Captain Morena's heart was black as night
Her quest for vengeance went long into the twilight
We last saw her, falling to her death
A smile on her face, her sword buried in his chest
