lyrics

Have you ever met an island
Who takes to wing and parts the sky?
If you ever see my island
Tell her that I said goodbye.

Understanding. Reprimanding.
Never chancing to ask why.
Never knowing, never showing
The reasons why I lied.

Sometimes my mind betrays me,
Not understanding what I need.
But how could that dissuade me?
Was it caution or just greed?

Mind is racing, always chasing,
The knowledge I should heed.
Information. Indignation.
Pray for my mind to intercede.

How could I ask for a different world,
To know another time or place?
If I think that I am loosing my grip,
Just close my eyes, and think of your face.

We know the colors of the seasons:
Autumn gold, and winter blue,
But no one ever knows the reason
That spring is such a subtle hue.

Music playing. People saying:
"What do you think that we should do?"
Who remembers outworn embers?
Listen what I say to you:

Now the world all seems right again.
No island will forsake the sea.
If the heat of summer is too much,
Reach inside your mind, and try to find your sanity.
