I Am An Island


I am an island, no man is an island but me
I reach out my leaves, and skillfully touch them to sea
I ship out a boat made of hope on the waves and watch as it slips below
I am an island, a island that nobody knows
I am an island, no man is an island but I'm not a man
I was raised by an ocean of creatures and brands
I give what I can of, the fruits and flowers that bloom on my skin
But when loneliness knocks, she lets herself in

Islands don't sink, the water just rises around us
Just think, someone out there is watching the stars
But they're not the same as ours, some say they're already dead,
And the light's only on in your head.
I am an island, no man is an island but me,
I warm all my sands by the pyre of my family tree
I took to the tundra, I climb every mountain and fight every monster I can
To run from that long burning fire, my friend

I am an island, no man is an island but I'm not a man
And messages in bottles feel like battering rams
In my head I'm a beacon, a pinprick of potential
Birthed out of nothing but blue
And the light that I signal, it's shining for you
Islands of love, we just want somebody to touch us
Just 'cause we are distant doesn't mean we are lost
We are where we are, and whenever a visitor docks
And is stranded, it means we are not

You and I have something in common, I will try to share my island
You and I are sinking in tandem, miles apart in every direction
You and I are treading this current, both of us are doomed for certain
You and I are our own now, maybe we'll wash up on solid ground
You and I are islands
Islands of fate, lately I feel the tides shifting
They're bringing us closer together to stay
The waters are rippling, a new world is taking it's shape
And tonight, our pangaea awaits
