"The Beautiful People"
"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.
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
