On an Island

Words and Music by J. Scott Gilbert

 

Besieged by memories of yesterdays gone past.

Never end, recurring dreams that never go to fast. 

Faster all the time as my heart begins to race.

Erasing all the time and the memory from my face.

 

Dredging on eternally back into my shell.

Back before I lost my soul in a sea of swirling swells.

Faster all the time as my heart begins to race.

Erasing all the time and the memory from my face.

 

Where no one knows, and nothing grows and nothing’s left to learn.

Destination, separation, point of no return.

 

 

You know I’m on an island;

An island in my head.

You know I’m an island.

And I won’t be back again.

 

You know it seems so hard

To tell you just where I am.

Well, I’ve been here, oh, so long I don’t know just where I began.

Lost in a stormy sea, weathered by the surf.

Left alone where the threat of isolation always lurks.

 

You know I’m on an island!
