Islands – Humans lyrics

Love bird, you flew into my window
Now in the sticky love nest sits a widow
The tree it fell on all the people
Gathered there to watch it topple

Now turn around
It's burning down the city we live in
Should we mumble lies?
Take them by surprise?
Let them have their way with us?

Wounds be by old enemies
Broke my heart to see foundations ripped apart
And investments fade away
I guess we got off to a bad start

No oxygen
What is the outcome?
Hungry humans
We've got to enslave them

We'll burn those bridges
When we come to them
I'm not just their leader
I'm also one of them

The food supply has been depleted
The river's ran dry just when it was needed
The rats come out to take it over
Singing, squeaking, "We built this city"

It's hard to breathe but we couldn't leave
Nowhere left to go, almost everybody died
Drank the tears from those who cried
We shriveled from the sodium

And a map was found with an X on it
So we followed it there and what did we find?
An underground design
As we entered in to our surprise

Oxygen
Rivers of playgrounds
The ancients just stayed down
They never stopped moving

We stumbled towards them
But they locked all the barn doors
So we had to dig deeper
We had to dig deeper

And the deep was dark
I wanted to sleep forever
Wake up later, maybe never
We had to build a civilization
Let the planet focus on the planet's rotation

We tried, we tried, we really tried
But no one could do it
Happily [unverified] alive
Never learned how to survive
We were humans being useless

No oxygen
What is the outcome?
Hungry humans
We've got to enslave them

We'll burn those bridges
When we come to them
I'm not just their leader
I'm also one of them

We're freed into oblivion
No traces of civilized living, eating the earth
We're fading to oblivion
No traces of civilized living eaten by earth
