"Sailin' On" is a bonus track of the Soulfly album Conquer, released in 2008. This song is a Bad Brains cover as it thrashes repeatedly for just over a minute and a half, and then plays acoustic instrumental resembling Bob Marley for the remainder of this track. The first verse of the lyrics talks about a man who has a broken heart, while the second verse mentions about "war games".

The Bad Brains version lasts only 1:55, while the Soulfly version lasts 4:41. Soulfly added an acoustic part following the actual cover for the sake of lengthening it to include a different vibe that is trademark of the band.

Lyrics Edit

You don't want me anymore
So I'll just walk right out the door
Played a game right from the start
I trust you, you used me
And now my hearts all torn apart

So I'm sailin', well I'm sailin' on
Well I'm movin', hey I'm movin' on
Sail on, sail on
Sail on, sail on
Yeeeaah!

Try to see if I'll give up
But there wasn't any luck
It's a fact, fact of life
That's the games, games of strife
Everything is all stride

So I'm sailin', well I'm sailin' on
Well I'm movin', hey I'm movin' on
Sail on, sail on
Sail on, sail on
Yeeeaah!

So I'm sailin', well I'm sailin' on
Well I'm movin', hey I'm movin' on
Sail on, sail on
Sail on, sail on
Yeeeaah!

There's too many years,
Whit too many tears
And too many days,
Whith nothing to say

And how will we know,
When there's now here to grow
And what's the facts
For life to show
