Island in the sea
Are so much like me
They don't ever change--no emotion, no emotion

Islands on the land
Dry like desert sand
Island in the city
All alone it's such a pity

CHORUS
It's just a masquerade
Just painted laces
When will it change
Never [Islands lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]

Islands in the seas
What's come over me
We are both surrounded by the water--empty water
Give me mystery--and the fear it brings
Anything at all to break up the monotony

CHORUS

Islands in the sea
Forever . . . forever
