Coheed And Cambria – Island lyrics
[Verse 1]
I'm just a big dud, foolish from the start
I make a wrong move and the world just falls apart
And there's no cure for this disease I'm making up
So what's the fuss?

I live inside this head and I'm at war
Hero and villain, same time keeping score
And I'm not sure what I'm to do inside these walls
Not anymore, with my own life

[Chorus]
Get off the island and swim back to shore
Girl, I don't think I could last here, one second longer
'Cause in these waters, I'm done for

Now, give me one good reason to stay here, at all
When the fee is too big, our apartment's too small
Where's my lifesaver when I'm screaming danger?

I'm screaming danger
Get off the island and swim back to shore

[Verse 2]
I'm just victim of unfortunate circumstance
And this was my choice, so shit, well I'll be damned
And I've got to stop dwelling on what I could have had
All the times I could have, oh, I just want to...

[Chorus]
Get off the island and swim back to shore
Girl, I don’t think I could last here, one second longer
'Cause in these waters, I'm done for

Now, give me one good reason to stay here, at all
When the fee is too big, our apartment's too small
Where's my lifesaver when I'm screaming danger?

[Post-Chorus]
I just can't stay here any longer, help
I just can't stay here any longer, help
I just can't...

[Bridge]
And maybe, one day
From your, sand I'll turn away
And never see you, again
Island, get off the...

[Chorus]
Get off the island and swim back to shore
Girl, I don't think I could last here, one second longer
'Cause in these waters I'm done for

Now, give me one good reason to stay here, at all
When the fee is too big, our apartment's too small
Where's my lifesaver when I'm screaming danger?
Where's my lifesaver when I'm screaming danger?
Where's my lifesaver when I'm screaming danger?

I'm screaming danger
Screaming danger
Screaming danger
